Red Face, Itchy And Scaly Due To Cosmetic Allergies?
, my face is red, itchy and also scaly because of cosmetic allergies, then I try to use aloe vera to treat itching, but why does it even add itchiness and dry my face?
Thank you for the question.
Itching, redness, and scaly skin on the face after using certain cosmetics can indeed indicate an allergic reaction. However, not only that, this complaint can also arise due to other causes, such as irritation, fungal infections, atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, bacterial infections or other microorganisms, psoriasis, ichthyosis vulgaris, neurodermatitis, and many other potential triggers.
Most people will not experience a negative reaction on their skin when in contact with aloe. However, in sensitive people, contact with aloe can also cause allergies, thus worsening your complaints.
Therefore, you should not carelessly provide treatment for your condition. Check with your doctor first or a dermatologist so that you can be given the right treatment. At home, your complaints can be alleviated first in the following ways:
Avoid scratching, rubbing, or sloughing off the skin carelessly
Be diligent in washing your face with a pH-balanced, oil-based, cleansing soap that does not contain irritating ingredients or is allergenic to your skin
Use a moisturizer and sunblock on your skin before activating
Not excessive wearing cosmetics, before being declared safe by a doctor
Avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight, pollution, and other substances that are prone to causing inflamed skin
Get more rest, don't worry too much, eat fruits and vegetables more diligently, also always lead a healthy lifestyle in your daily life
Hope this helps ...
