Itchy Face After Using A Lime Mask?
he said that containing vitamin C is good for the skin. Then I mask it with lime juice, why does it itch instead? Not only that, when using tomatoes itching, using aloe vera also itches. What is the cause? Is it because I’m a beginner so I just adjusted my skin or is there an allergy like that huh? Explanation please
Hello Nurotul Ayni, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Vitamin C has been researched quite a lot and is proven to provide good benefits for the skin such as increasing the production of skin collagen, preventing signs of aging and also preventing the skin from becoming dry.
Although good for the skin, the risk of an allergic reaction to this ingredient when contacted directly remains because basically all ingredients, including vitamin C can cause allergic reactions in a person.
However, to ascertain whether it is true that you are allergic to vitamin C or allergic to other components that are equally contained in the three plants that you use, it is strongly recommended that you consult further with a dermatologist. The doctor will assess further about your complaints and also the condition of your skin, and if necessary, it may be advisable to do some checks to make sure.
For now, it's best to avoid ingredients that cause an itchy reaction on your face, and other skincare that contain vitamin C until it is stated by your doctor that you are allowed to use it. You should replace your intake of vitamin C through the consumption of foods that contain vitamin C because the intake of vitamin C for the skin does not have to be placed directly on the skin, but mainly through food intake. It is also advisable for you to further consult the condition of your skin, whether it requires skincare that contains vitamin C or not.
I hope this helps.
