Beware of makeup hazards
    2016-10-28  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    IF costume makeup is on your agenda this Halloween, you may want to reconsider your getup or at least be cautious with your cosmetic choices. Side effects of toxic costume makeup can be extreme. New York City dermatologist Sejal Shah, an expert in skin conditions and diseases such as acne and rosacea, has given us some tips.

    “The scariest and most concerning substances found in Halloween makeup are heavy metals, which can be toxic,” says Shah. “For example, lead has been found in these makeups, and although lead poisoning doesn’t commonly occur via the skin, it can be absorbed through the skin.” Here are a few rules to follow:

    1. Do a patch test

    Shah suggests doing a patch test any time you are using a new product or have sensitive skin. “I recommend applying a small amount to your inner arm — the inner elbow or inner wrist work well — to see if you develop a reaction,” she says. “Some people may develop a reaction immediately; whereas in others it might take a few days, so it’s a good idea to test it out for a few days, even up to a week.”

    2. Don’t be too frugal

    If you spend more money on face paint or Halloween makeup, you can expect better quality ingredients. “If your regular makeup isn’t going to complete your Halloween costume, try to go for high-quality theater makeup,” says Shah. Look for natural-based makeup.

    3. Treat your skin right

    Be mindful of the instructions on your costume makeup. “If you must use inexpensive makeup, don’t use it around your eyes or mouth, especially if it’s not meant for that area,” says Shah. For example, certain dyes are only FDA approved for certain areas. When it comes to removal, wash your makeup off as soon as possible. “You may need to double up on the cleansing (such as a makeup wipe or remover followed by cleanser) to ensure all the makeup is off, and apply a gentle moisturizer with calming ingredients to reduce any mild irritation or dryness. If you have a more significant reaction you may need to see your dermatologist.”
