How to reduce the occurrence of adverse reactions to beauty products?

In order to avoid adverse reactions to cosmetics, should we reduce the use of beauty products?
The use of beauty products has become a part of people’s daily life. Objectively speaking, most beauty products on the market are safe. Among the people who have adverse reactions to beauty products, most of the injuries caused by adverse reactions are mild. After stopping using cosmetics that cause adverse reactions, most of the symptoms of consumers can heal. Therefore, consumers should not only improve their awareness of the safe use of makeup but also have confidence in the safe use of makeup.
How should consumers report the adverse reaction to cosmetics? Consumers can contact the cosmetics brand to inform them of the information about the adverse reactions they suspect after using a certain product. If consumers go to a medical institution as a monitoring and evaluation base or monitoring outpost for adverse reactions to beauty products, they can report adverse reactions through the medical institution. Consumers can also report adverse reactions that may be related to the use of beauty products to the local beauty products’ adverse reaction monitoring agency or the department responsible for drug supervision and administration.
What should be paid attention to when using cosmetics for special groups such as the allergic constitution and pregnant women?
People with the allergic constitution (such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, etc.) and patients with allergic skin diseases (eczema, atopic dermatitis, urticaria, etc.) should undergo skin tests before using cosmetics. When consumers are aware of their own allergens, they can identify whether the product contains their own allergenic ingredients by looking at the full mark of the cosmetics label, and avoid using products that may cause allergy to the maximum extent.
As a special group, pregnant women should consider not only the impact of cosmetics on themselves but also the health of the fetus in the womb when choosing cosmetics. Therefore, beauty products with simple ingredients should be selected as far as possible to reduce unnecessary use of beauty products, such as hair coloring, perm, spot removal, perfume, lipstick, and other products.

When using beauty products in beauty salons, we should also ask about the source of products, carefully check the product label and instructions, and ask to check the purchase certificate if necessary. When purchasing products, you should pay attention to asking for invoices and shopping vouchers for rights protection.

The product name, full component label, manufacturer name and address, method of use, production date and shelf life, storage conditions, and necessary safety warnings shall be clearly marked on the label; Imported beauty products should have Chinese labels. Consumers should have a reasonable expectation of the efficacy of cosmetics and should be vigilant to avoid using cosmetics with explicit or implied medical effects, exaggerated propaganda, or misleading content on the label. Third, use cosmetics reasonably according to the use methods specified on the cosmetics label. In case of adverse reactions to cosmetics, stop using them immediately, and go to the dermatology department of the hospital in time if necessary.
