Avoiding Allergies

An allergic reactions is quite different and occurs when our body's immune system is triggered into action by a certain substace that does not normally affect other people. When it is the first time I encounter a certain substance, I know if I am allergic to it because I become sensitized to it, but I dont have any symptoms. Allergen on the other hand, occurs on the second or subsequesnt exposure to the substance.

Simple cosmetic allergies can be avoided by not using the offending product. It may be possible to identify the individual cosmetic ingredient by trial and error, or by simply consulting your doctor and arrange a patch test.
