What is a skin allergy?
Something touches your skin and your immune system thinks it’s under attack. It overreacts and sends antibodies to help fight the invader, called an allergen. The result is a red, itchy rash where the substance landed.
People who have allergies react to things that wouldn’t bother most others. Anything from plants like poison ivy to dyes and fragrances found in everyday products might be allergens.
You could also have an allergic reaction to something in the air that settles on your skin like pollen, chemical sprays, powders, fibers, or cigarette smoke. This is called airborne contact dermatitis, and it mostly happens on your eyelids, head, and neck. It can be hard for doctors to diagnose because it doesn’t look that different from the other type.
Skin allergies can also cause hives and swelling deep in your skin, called angioedema.
What Causes Skin Allergies?
It takes at least 10 days to become sensitive to something after your first contact with it. You might even be able to touch something for years before you have an allergic reactionto it.
But once you develop an allergy, you could have a reaction within a few minutes of coming into contact with it. Or it might take a day or two.
The following are the most popular causes of skin allergies:
- Nickel, a metal used in jewelry and snaps on jeans, makeup, lotions, soaps, and shampoos
- Sunscreens and bug sprays
- Medication you put on your skin, like antibiotics or anti-itch cream
- Cleaning products
- Plants, including poison ivy
- Latex, which is used in stretchy things like plastic gloves, elastic in clothing, condoms and balloons
So in all honesty how does AA Cosmetics work? AA = Anti Allergy. Because it isn’t an instant cure….there really isn’t one at the moment. So basically when your skin reacts to an allergen it becomes ‘damaged’ or broken almost like a layer is scrapped away. And what AA Cosmetics does is it heals or repairs this barrier slowly over time. The ingredients are high tech so that they heal the barrier.
The NEW Collagen range uses a real fancy ass sonophoresis system but essentially this system allows for deeper penetration into the skin thus healing is quicker. These products have become my night time ‘treat’ to myself, to my skin and I can honestly say that they not only smell divine but they have improved my skin hugely! To get more information on this particular range you can read it on one of my latest posts.
Ingredients are the key to cosmetics. You need to know what is in the stuff you are using especially if you are allergy prone because…..there might be something that actually damages your skin and you need to stop using it. If you have dry skin you should also know exactly what ingredients are in the skincare range you are using.
Makeup versus Skincare? What would your choice be?
I just want to end off by saying that you can spend tons of money on makeup to cover your skin problems but at the end of the day they won’t go away. You need to use a good skincare range that understands your skin….start today because it is never too early. In fact if you use a good skincare you can eliminate the need for makeup!
