It was an innocent little swatch test that started it all. You tried a beauty product you’d heard a lot about at the mall then forgot all about it. Until you see odd rashes appear on your neck then your face. Now you’re stuck with splotches and a lot of itchiness that’s making you question why your skin is reacting this way.
But perhaps, the problem isn’t in your skin but the product itself, more specifically, in its ingredient base.
What’s causing Those Rashes?
You may notice a certain rash on your skin that might look a bit like eczema. It may be red, flaky and dry, and may even cause blistering or even swelling. Over time, it may evolve into a weeping rash, although this may happen quicker if your skin is extra sensitive.
The basic reason may be because that cosmetic product was made using ingredients such as fragrances, acrylates, and preservatives, which caused that allergic reaction to your skin.
Now, while this may have not happened to you before, your skin may have reacted now as your immune system became hypersensitive to the ingredients. Sure, you could have used a lot of makeup before, but now your system doesn’t have the capacity to protect your body anymore. And this might have caused the reaction.
Why are the Ingredients to Blame?
There are a number of common (but highly suspect) ingredients used widely in making makeup products, namely:
- Fragrance mix
- Certain oils
Any of these ingredients can cause a cosmetic reaction, mainly because your body has no need for them.
Cobalt and Nickel are metals, which are mainly found in hair dyes, antiperspirants and eyeshadows. Preservatives are found in numerous products, from hair care products to face wipes, and are mostly to support the product’s shelf life, rather than enhance your skin health.
Fragrances can cause allergic reactions, especially to those with sensitive or dry skin. And so on!
So as long as you keep using products that use such chemicals, you will keep getting the rash, and that will only get worse with time.
Is there a Solution?
Instead, we use all-natural products such as aloe vera, honeysuckle, rosehip, lavender, jojoba oil, green tea, rose, multi-vitamin serums and oils such as sweet almond oil, borage seed oil and sunflower oil among others – all ingredients that Mother Nature provides for your care!
