I just want to share this little tip I learned from my mom in a makeup party. Some of the ladies there was having allergic reactions to the products being promoted and the consultant suggested the hostess provide some milk in a dish so the women could wash their skin off with it using a gentle wash with a face cloth. The milk effectively neutralizes the allergic reaction. I hope this helps. any more tips? in case there are no available milk in the area?

Many times it isn't the make up but the fact that the applicators and the cosmetics have come into contact with nickel. Washing with milk will not stop a contact dermatitis that is the result of a nickel sensitivity but witch hazel WILL shorten the time the rash sticks around.

I'm not allergic to any makeup or skincare products, but I do have really sensitive skin. I stick to Dove's hypoallergenic products exclusively. Anything harsher and my skin rebels! I hate it!
