Allergic reactions to many types of cosmetics may occur when the skin is repeatedly exposed to small amounts of allergy causing ingredients. There are several steps you can take to try and avoid cosmetic allergy reactions, including the following.
Be sure to clean your hands and face before applying any cosmetics.
Applying too much cosmetics to your skin and using several new products simultaneously can be one reason of cosmetic allergy
Read the list of ingredients on all cosmetic products. If you find an ingredient that has caused a reaction in the past, don't use that product
Tightly close the cosmetic containers closed tightly and free of dust and dirt.
Discard products if the color changes or they develop an odor.
Test before you apply any cosmetics to your skin. Pour a drop on the inner wrist than wait at least 24 hours to see whether it has any harmful effect on your organism
Do not use eye make-up if you have an eye infection.
Never share make-up.
If you want to test a product in the store, wipe the opening of the tester with alcohol.
