Seven Ways That You Can Prevent Makeup Allergies

Are you someone who suffers from make-up allergies? If so, then you will be happy to know that there are a number of things that can be done to prevent them. Below are some tips that will help you prevent makeup allergies:

Prevent Makeup Allergies by Washing Your Face

This is a basic precaution. Many people develop makeup allergies because they do not wash their face before they put on makeup.

Do Not Share Your Makeup

Makeup is one of the many things that you should avoid sharing with other people. When you share your makeup with another person, you also share germs. It does not matter whether it is sitting on the counter at a store or belongs to your sister.

Do Not Put on Eye Makeup if You Have an Eye Infection

Conjunctivitis, which is also known as pink eye, is a very common eye infection. It is also very contagious. That is why you want to avoid putting on eye makeup if you have pink eye.

Get Rid of Old Cosmetics

Microorganisms have a chance to get inside every time that you open up your makeup. Most makeup has preservatives inside of it that will kill off microorganisms for one year. Therefore, you should not keep makeup for longer than one year.

Prevent Makeup Allergies by Testing it First

If you have had allergic reactions to makeup in the past, then you may want to test the makeup before you decide to buy it.  Just because the product says “dermatologist-recommended” or “allergy-tested” does not mean that it will not cause you to have an allergic reaction.

Carefully Apply Mascara

You should only apply mascara to two-thirds of your eyelashes.  Eyeliner should never be applied to the inner margin of your eyelids.  Additionally, if you wear contact lenses, then you should avoid wearing frosted eye shadow.

Even if a product contains natural ingredients, you may still develop an allergic reaction to it. Lanolin, which comes from sheep wool, has been shown to cause dermatitis. That is why it is good to test out any type of makeup product before you choose to buy it.
