5 skin triggers that you could be not have thought of

Trying to get to the bottom of a skin reaction can be frustrating, and even in the Pai office we were guilty of missing obvious irritants!

In the middle of spring, it's easy to accuse seasonal allergies, and hay fever was the first suggestion when Sophie, executive assistant, and Meg, social media manager, mysteriously suffered from itchy skin and eyes.

When the symptoms disappeared on a long holiday weekend, we found that the problem was a bit closer to our desks than we thought.

All it took to solve the problem was a simple change of surface cleaning spray – but it is not always so easy to find the culprit of a reaction.

<h3> Here are 5 skin triggers that you may not have considered: </h3>
<li> <strong> <strong> <strong> <strong> Nail Polish<br />
</strong> </strong> </strong> </strong> A fresh manicure can be one of life's little pleasures – but if you have eczema or dermatitis around your eyes or mouth, it may be worth rethinking your nail polish habit.</p>
<p> Without even realizing it, we constantly touch our faces all day long – in some polishes bring the irritating hardening resins into contact with the thinner skin of our face and our eyes! </p>
<li> <strong> <strong> <strong> <strong> Household Cleaner<br />
</strong> </strong> </strong> </strong> Some detergents are obviously hard (and carry the warning labels to prove it!), But there are other seemingly innocent culprits that can also irritate our skin.</p>
<p> Surface cleaners and polishing sprays can coat the hands and transfer them to the face, which mysteriously leads to itchy or irritated skin and eyes, as was the case with Sophie and Meg. </p>
<p> Try switching to more environmentally friendly alternatives, the ingredients of which are transparent, or make your own diluted white distilled vinegar as a gentler substitute for surface cleaners. </p>
<li> <strong> Dryer Sheets and Fabric Softener <br /> </strong> <br /> We have already discussed washing powder as irritating to the skin, but fabric softener and dryer sheets can also cause itchy, painful skin.
<p class= They often contain a cocktail of potentially irritating ingredients to keep the fabric fibers soft and static-free.

If you have rashes mostly in areas that are normally covered by clothing, try switching to an odorless, detergent-free formula, or consider using fabric softener entirely!

  • Zinc
    Zinc PCA can be good news for your skin, especially if you have a complexion-prone and sensitive complexion.

    Zinc oxide, an inorganic form that is often found in sunscreen, diaper rash cream and mineral make-up, can make the skin red, irritated and itchy in allergy sufferers.

  • Synthetic Fabrics
    Synthetic fabrics not only feel itchy and hot on sensitive skin, they can also contain additives. Traces of formaldehyde resins (used to make wrinkle-resistant fabrics) and para-phenylenediamine (PPD – used in dyes) can cause allergic contact dermatitis.

    These additives are more common in artificial fabrics, but some wool and bedding can also feel rough and itchy on sensitive skin.

    Cotton is widely accepted as the best choice for sensitive skin and it is getting easier to find organic cotton too!
