Irritated by a Skin Care Product?
Apr 05, 2012
Irritation from products can be as obvious as hives or as subtle as a little dryness and flaking that just doesn't go away. If a product itches, burns, or stings for longer than a minute or two, you are either irritated by it or allergic to it. If it causes redness, a rash, an increase in fine lines, or persistent flaking, the same is true.
The best way to find out is to stop all products except a gentle cleanser and moisturizer for at least a week. If you are better, try adding skin care products back one at time a week apart so you can tell which one is causing the problem.

How long do fillers really last? My dermatologist says one thing and you say another. What should I think? Sometimes you just have the flu! Arrrgggggh - confusion about Retin A/retinol and vitamin A creams! Can lasers like Fraxel Restore or Fraxel Repair cause MORE wrinkles?? Can the aging décolletage, chest and hands really be improved? Does the prescription hair reduction cream Vaniqua really work?
