What is skin Allergies and how to take care of it?

skin Allergies may be especially common on the face because the skin is more sensitive than elsewhere, and because of various face creams and other products people use on their faces. Even if you don’t have sensitive skin, you’ve probably still experienced a skin reaction. Maybe you were so excited to try a new product that you forgot to do a patch test and ended up breaking out in an itchy, red rash. Sensitive skin sufferers experience irritated skin regularly.
Mostly 2 types of Reaction you may feel on skin: 

1. Irritation:-  Irritant is the most common skin reaction to a beauty product. It can cause burning, stinging, itching, and redness in the area where you apply the product. If your skin is dry or injured, it loses some of its natural protection against irritants. This means reactions can be harsher or happen more easily.  

2. Skin allergies (allergic contact dermatitis). Sensitivity or a true allergy to a specific ingredient in the product causes redness, swelling, itching, or blisters on the skin. Fragrances and preservatives are some of the biggest culprits.

First things to do after skin allergies:

Use aloe vera: As soon as you notice a reaction, reach for an anti-inflammatory cream that contains 0.5% hydrocortisone. Mix it with equal parts aloe vera gel and apply twice daily to the affected area. Hydrocortisone soothes inflammation while aloe vera cools and hydrates, providing immediate relief for hot, itchy skin.

Use ice cubes: Use the ice! Gently rub the rashy area with an ice cube to reduce inflammation and slightly numb the skin. The cold will help reduce redness, swelling, and discomfort.

Contact Skin experts (Dermatologist):  After doing above to steps call your Skin experts (Dermatologist) and make an appointment for the skin test and consultation. It will help you to know your skin and proper treatment of skin reaction.

Basic steps to avoid skin allergies :

1. Check the label:  Look for products with their expiry first, Do not buy product near to expiry date
2. Do a patch test first:  Before you start to use a new product, place a small amount on the inside of your elbow and wait 48 to 72 hours. If you notice no redness, swelling, itching, or burning on that spot, it’s OK for you to use.
3. Spritz on clothes:  Use the fragrance on your clothes, not your skin. You’ll be less likely to have a skin reaction to it. It also helps prevent the fragrance from having a bad reaction with other products you use.
5. Stop using if feel:  If your skin reacts badly to a beauty product, stop using it immediately. You can sometimes use an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream to help ease inflammation. In some cases, you might need a prescription-strength cream.
Always care full about brands you use and check expiry of beauty products. Nowadays fake beauty products are also in the market which looks the same as original but cheaper than original products so please don’t buy cheap beauty product and try to buy herbal beauty products for use.
