I woke up this morning with an allergic reaction on my face in the form of a red angry rash and swollen eyelids... haven’t had it in such a long time.
I’d never suffered with anything like that in the past, it started happening after I had my third baby. It took a very long time to discover I’m allergic to ammonia in hair dye and certain chemicals in skincare products... no anti ageing products for me of any sort... I’ve never gone to a dermatologist to have it checked out and still have no clue as to exactly which chemicals are causing the reactions.
Anyway ... now I stick to @dermalogica
...I’ve tried a couple of @imageskincare
products and they were amazing but on the pricey side so I stick to the affordable brands. @clarins
is really good too but I still have to steer clear of their anti ageing.
Tonight I found a tube from the Chinese medicine shop and I put it on thinking it might be good, the writing on it is Chinese so couldn’t quite remember what it was for. I quickly realised it was like a deep heat treatment for arthritis 🙈 the heat element 🔥has now calmed down but I think it might be wise to put a label on it 😆 god only knows what I’m going to wake up like 🙈🙈🙈
I shall let you know in the morning 😅
So here I am in the pic at age 46 having never used anti ageing anything, ever ... not too bad I think ... got some good skin genes from my Mum 💖👌🏼the rash has died down a lot too throughout the day. Note to self : go get the chemical test 🙄
