It’s every woman’s dream to look beautiful and well-groomed. For this reason, personal care products and often make-up help is available.
However, unconscious make-up, although not enough to make a woman beautiful; can also have many negative effects on skin health. As it is known, the biggest side effect of make-up is allergic reactions. In particular, the foundation, powder and headlight materials applied to the face are the ones that cause more allergies. What should be done to prevent this risk?
1- Test the makeup first
Before buying these products, it is useful to buy and use the test product. If a product does not cause any allergic reactions after 72 hours, there is a low likelihood of developing allergies in the following days, but it may still occur. Especially those with sensitive skin should be careful.
2- Do not sleep with makeup
One of the most important known side effects of make-up is comedones. Both the open comedones are known as black dots and the white dots known as closed comedones en have the largest share of unconscious make-up.
When the person uses products that are not suitable for the skin type, the pores become clogged, the fat accumulated in the clogged pores causes acne or comedones on the face.
To know the skin type well, it is necessary to use oily products if it has dry skin, water-based or matting and oil-absorbing products if it has oily skin. It is best to use the products taken in accordance with the advice of professional people.
4- Make- up your skin after absorbing moisturizer
Coloring products, blush, eyeshadow, mascara, lipstick, and other products should be considered in the use of rules. Immediately after a moisturizer applied to the face, the make-up will cause unpleasant appearance on the skin.
Therefore, it is necessary to wait for the humidifier to absorb. Another important point about makeup is that excessive and water-based lipsticks sometimes cause lip cracking and dryness. To prevent this, either apply an oil-based moisturizer to the lip or use oil-based lipsticks.
5- Be careful with the products sold under the name “Herbal”
Mascaras and headlights are the most important cause of allergic reactions on the face. The reaction to one product can generally develop against another product.
This indicates that the skin has a low tolerance. Some people with sensitive skin may not be able to use make-up products throughout their lives. Allergic reactions may occur even against products marketed under the title of natural, mineral, vegetable products. Allergy tests, which are often done, show that people are not tolerated.
6- Uncleaned skin may wrinkle early
One of the most important mistakes is not cleaning the makeup. Make-up products remaining on the skin cause thickening of the skin, early wrinkles, pore enlargement, matte and inhomogeneous color changes of the skin. Therefore, the removal of the makeup with a suitable product is necessary for the person who wants to make up.
7- Do not use your friend’s make-up tools
The most important rule that should be considered is not to use another’s makeup products. Thus, personal infectious agents are spread from person to person. Especially if the person has an open wound, the risk of contamination increases. In addition to cosmetics, the common use of agents such as brush, cotton, and sponge used to apply cosmetics by more than one person is a big problem in terms of spreading interpersonal microbes.
8- Wash your hands before make-up
Before applying cosmetics, the hands should be washed and the skin to be applied must be clean. Application apparatus should be disposable if possible, brushes should be cleaned and replaced frequently.
9- Keep your make-up correctly
Products should be applied according to the instructions for use. Products exposed to the sun and heat lose their preservatives. This reduces the usage time of the product. It causes premature degradation and bacterial growth.
10- Do not cover your skin wounds with make-up
If there is a condition such as wounds, abrasions, infections, eczema that disrupts the integrity of the skin, make-up should be avoided. Otherwise, the infection may develop or the problem will be exacerbated.
