Bloggers and skincare enthusiasts are wanted big time for today’s post! Especially if you’ve experience in particular with potential allergies, face masks and know plenty about looking after the under eye area!
Okay so a few months back I used a face mask thinking nothing of it as I’ve used the mask in question previously. I still didn’t freak when I felt a burning sensation on the under eye area. I kept the mask on for the specified time before removing it and cleansing my face to remove any left over residue. I do have to add that I kept the product well away from my eye area in general, leaving ample space between the eyes and where I ceased application of the mask, I’d understand the situation as a whole had I not done this. I thought nothing more of it afterwards, that is until a few days later when it came to applying my make-up, feeling discomfort especially when applying product near to my right eye specifically.
The photos taken for use with this post aren’t at it’s worst and so aren’t doing it full justice, though you will notice there are visible differences in my under eye areas overall, such as the colour and texture of my skin. Whilst my left is it’s usual baggy, dark circled mess, the right is this and more, with flaky, irritated skin! It feels really dry and scratchy and applying make-up is a no-no, it simply won’t stay put, furthermore feels absolutely awful. It’s extremely hard to apply, uncomfortable to wear and an utter nightmare to remove because the area in question is so sensitive, it takes forever! I’m assuming this has happened due to some kind of reaction, though as I say I’ve used the mask before therefore seems odd that it would be any kind of allergy. It’s extremely rare that I suffer from any type of allergies or reactions to things, so those of you that do – does this seem about right for an allergy, also will this ever go away? The rash/reaction isn’t apparent on a daily basis, but I do notice it several times a week and it’s been this way for a few months now, since using the face mask.
My intention of this post really is to get some advice and recommendations, is there anything I should try out to get rid of it? Also whilst I’m at it, I have tonnes of laughter lines, it’s what happens when your whole family think they’re a comedic genius – any help with the ageing process would be happily received also, after all, I aren’t getting any younger! Finally – acne, it’s come back again since having my little girl, and it’s twisting my swede! HELP! I’d say my skin type is best described as combination, but can be quite dry in the Winter months!
Can you offer any expertise at all? I’d love to hear from you if so! Please don’t hesitate to get in touch, either pop me a comment below or catch me on any of my social media profiles. Honestly, you’re doing me a massive favour! Have you had this problem yourself? How long were you left in despair before solving the problem?!
