The Face Is Sore, Itchy And Reddened After Wearing A Lemon Mask?
Hi, I’m 14 years old, before I often use lemons for masks, but I haven’t used lemon for almost 6 months. Now I try again masking using lemon, but my face is sore and itching, itching itching, a few minutes later my face is red red. Guess what? Why? As long as I don’t use lemon, I use sun block and tone up cream
Hello Sibta, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The use of lemon directly on the skin can indeed provide several benefits such as helping to reduce inflammation in acne, provide an antibacterial effect, help brighten the skin, and also can increase collagen.
Although it can provide some benefits to the skin, the use of lemon directly on the skin (including as a mask) is actually more likely to cause side effects, especially for people who have sensitive skin because it can cause irritation and irritation can be exacerbated when the lemon is used immediately after exposure sunlight.
The complaint that you are experiencing at this time may be a symptom of irritation due to the use of lemon, but it can also be caused by other conditions such as sunburn, allergic contact dermatitis, or irritation due to other products that you have just used. To be sure, it is recommended to check your skin condition directly to the doctor.
In the meantime, you should stop using lemons and other skincare or cosmetic products that you just used. Not recommended to use drugs other than those given by doctors because it can only worsen your complaints. If you want to use the lemon mask again, consult with your doctor first.
I hope this helps.
