All of us use some types of skin care products. Many of us use color cosmetics. Most of us are not aware that the product we love using so much may be causing dermatitis to us. this dermatitis can be allergic contact dermatitis or irritant contact dermatitis. Anytime you get eczema like patches on your skin, look at your skin care products and cosmetics. Avoid using them for some days and observe the results. If the dermatitis reduces, stiop iuse of that product. Let us find out more about how dermatitis may be caused.

A cosmetic or skin care product contains many ingredients. The main ingredient is the vehicle that forms the base of the product. Many other chemicals, dyes, fragrances, natural products are added to make a color cosmetic or a skin care product. Some of these skin care products and cosmetics can cause allergic contact dermatitis or irritant contact dermatitis.

Fragrances and preservatives are the most common dermatitis causing agents. Every individual has his/her tendency to be allergic or get irritant contact dermatitis from a material. The material, which is safe for one, may cause a reaction in others. For good skin care it is important to know about what causes allergy to you.

Though many skin care products are labeled as hypoallergenic, they may cause allergy in some people. Terms such as unscented, fragrance-free etc. that are frequently used to label skin care products may not have much signifivance because some fragrance may have been used to mask bad odor of other ingredients. Many natural products carry their own fragrance. Many lavender preparations may have no fragrance, but lavender itself is a fragrance.

Natural products used for skin care may also cause allergy, so do chemicals. Most of the essential oils of the lime family are phototoxic. If you use them and walk out in the sun, you will get phototoxic reaction on your skin. That is bad for good skin care.

Any time you get a reaction from a skin care product, stop using that. Try to find out the ingredients that cause dermatitis to you and avoid any other skin care product that uses the same ingredient. You should use any cosmetic or skin care preparation only after doing a small test on the skin first.
