Itchy And Pimply Face After Using Baby Lotion?
I want to ask why my face feels itchy after I applied the baby pink cream cussons. I am 13 years old. Why should I know, thanks?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically baby lotions are formulated from ingredients that are soft and safe for the skin. However, actually baby lotions are still not recommended for use on adult faces due to several factors:
Baby lotion is formulated to moisturize the baby's skin so that it is possible to contain the element of oil in it. The use of creams or lotions that contain lots of oil can trigger acne on the face, especially if you have oily skin types that are more prone to acne.
Baby lotion can be made from comedogenic material (meaning potentially clogging skin pores) so that it can potentially cause acne
Baby lotion can contain fragrances and this fragrance has the potential to cause allergic reactions in sensitive skin
If indeed your face feels itchy when you apply the baby lotion, you should not use it again on your face. Use care products that are made specifically for facial care and adjust the type of product to your skin type.
To reduce the itching and inflammation on your face right now, you can compress your face with a cold compress, making sure you don't touch or scratch your face very much.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
