There are Oklahomans who have sensitive skin; all types present in the Sooner State. At Dillard’s, located in Penn Square Mall, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, beauty consultants for the various beautification product lines have admitted that a common question asked them was, “Do you have anything for sensitive skin?” Having hyper skin sensitivity to facial, body and make-up products is a concern for numerous Oklahomans.
Many beauty products are not designed specifically for the sensitive skin types. Not all sensitive skin is identical; mild, moderate or severe. Beauty consultants at Dillard’s agree that a good method for making certain a beauty product line is appropriate for one’s skin is to try it on the back of the hand first. They call this the back of the hand test. These consultants insist it is easier to clean and properly treat the back of the hand if any negative product sensitivity occurs.
Omega Health Foods and The Health Food Center have qualified consultants who also recommend the back of the hand test. They allow customers to test certain beauty and body products as a preventive measure against customer dissatisfaction. One can further use this test to try make-up. The back of the hand test is a great way to match foundational make-up properly to one’s skin tone.
Sensitive skin can negatively react to an unsuitable beauty product within five minutes of exposure. The back of the hand is almost as sensitive as one’s face. There are beauty lines with natural or Organic ingredients that are more suitable for sensitive skin. Some available online or locally in Oklahoma are Avon Naturals, Avon Planet Spa, Bare Escentuals, Beauty Without Cruelty, Burt’s Bees, Desert Essence, Meaningful Beauty, Neutrogena Naturals, Noni Naturals and Origins.
It is recommended to read the entire ingredients listed per beauty product to check for anything that might cause an irritation or allergic reaction. Some beauty lines have nuts listed as ingredients. People with this food allergy should avoid such beauty products. A good guide to follow is if one is allergic to specific food, do not use a beauty product with that food listed. Everything one applies to the skin will be absorbed; end up in the bloodstream.
If uncertain about the back of the hand test or one has specific concerns about a beauty product line, it is best to refrain. Consulting with one’s primary physician or Dermatologist before using new beauty products is wise. One’s licensed health provider might be able to recommend an excellent beauty product line that would be perfect for one’s sensitive skin.
Even though a beauty line is labeled for sensitive skin, it is recommended to test the products before purchasing. There are beauty product lines labeled for sensitive skin that have ingredients that might cause negative reactions. Best to be cautious while selecting the perfect beauty product for one’s healthful gorgeous sensitive skin. Enjoy the day!
