We often hear skin care brands telling customers that redness or inflammation is a normal detoxification reaction to their products after first use.
Some natural companies even state that reactions can take up to a month, but this is "healthy" and shows that the botanical ingredients work.
After personally (and repeatedly!) Suffering from inflamed skin after testing new products, I find this worrying and rather irresponsible advice.
How to recognize an allergic reaction
While it can sometimes take a few weeks for the skin to establish itself in a new product regime, all signs of inflammation should be observed.
Symptoms of immediate redness or painful, aggravated skin are an allergic reaction to one or more ingredients. In this case, I would recommend that you stop using the product immediately and return it to the manufacturer for a refund.
Redness can take many different forms, but the most common allergic reaction to look out for is a burning sensation or a general feeling of heat or swelling on the skin.
Try it with confidence
Although responses to Pai products are rare, I firmly believe that every customer should be able to test and return our products risk-free if their skin does not respond positively to them.
We offer an unlimited 30-day money back guarantee on all of our full size products.
Alternatively, we have fantastic sample sets with six 5 ml test sizes that you can use to test our products for three or four days.
I would really like to hear from you – have you ever thought of an allergic reaction as "getting used to" a new regime?
