Allergic Reactions and Skin Care Products



Always Read the Fine Print on Your Anti-Aging Skin Care Products

The packaging of many skin care products often touts anti-aging formulations containing collagen, elastin, vitamin A, vitamin E, keratin, retinol, and time-release nutrients, among various other ingredients. However, read product labels carefully to find out exactly what you are actually applying to your skin. If you are an allergic type, you might want to avoid skin products and makeup containing paraaminobenzoic acid (PABA) and other known allergens, which can trigger allergic reactions. Even the highly popular mineral makeup can cause allergies in some people.

The most expensive makeup and skin care products do not necessarily equate with being the safest or the best. Check ingredients listed in the fine print before jumping on the bandwagon of the latest and greatest anti-aging beauty product.
