I have been suffering from a terrible eye allergy for the past week, and as I treating it, I told myself I could write about how I deal with them.
The below products mentioned are the one I use when I have a crisis and if you are going through any or if you just have sensitive skin, you might want to check them! I have always been suffering from multiple allergies and sensitive skin, although they got more severe the past three years. I use some of these products on a regular basis too because they suits my sensitive skin. I am not a doctor though, so if you are having a very serious reactions or severe burning, you must see a doctor! Allergies must be taken seriously.
If a cosmetic products gave you an allergy, you have to immediately throw it away and switch to calming and very specific products.
You are having an allergic reaction to a skincare or makeup product, but you don't know which one?
If your products are still brand new, you have to do what is called an elimination process: stop using any cosmetics products (switch to specialized items that I will list below). When your skin starts calming down (let's say after a week or two), slowly reintroduce your products, one by one to see which one is causing you the reaction.
You are having a reaction around the eyes
In this case, our mascara or concealer (or any other eye products) are probably the culprit. Remember to not keep such products for too long (check my article on how long you should keep your cosmetics). If it is brand new, you can blacklist the product and if this is recurrent, try using makeup or skin care without perfume (usually luxury brands loads their products with fragrances) and switch to brands like EyeCare or Avène.
You might also develop an allergy because of your nail polish. If you notice reaction around your eyes and mouth, this may be a sign since they are in contact with your nails. In this case, remove the polish for a while too and try to notice any change.
I hope this article helped you, and if you have any other questions or request, please don't hesitate to contact me!
