It pays to be Allergy Aware When Supporting Skin Health

There is no definitive connection between allergies causing acne, but allergies can affect skin health. Allergic reactions to something such as pollen, pollution, dirt and dust can result in itchy, watery eyes, runny/blocked nose, sore throat and itchy skin.

These reactions are occur as the body sees the allergy as an invading organism and overproduces antibodies to fight against them. The way in which we deal with the symptoms are what affects skin health.

Generally, when such symptoms occur, we tend to rub or scratch our face. This can cause irritation and lead pre-existing conditions such as acne to worsen. By reacting this way, we are also drying out skin and this is where the problem lies.

Why Dry Skin is Detrimental to Skin Health

Stripping skin of its natural oils can cause the oil producing glands in the face to overproduce sebum. An overproduction of sebum can cause skin to become oily. This results in pores becoming clogged with excess sebum, dirt and dead skin cells resulting in breakouts.

Treat allergies

If your allergies are seasonal, visit the pharmacy for an over the counter remedy. If you need something stronger or are unsure of the cause, see your GP for further help and treatment. Keeping allergic reactions to a minimum should help.

Stop Touching your Face

We have said this before but simply stop touching, rubbing or scratching your face. Hands carry germs and dirt which can lead to clogged pores.

Choose Appropriate Skin Care Products

Ensure the skin care products you use are non-comedogenic, for sensitive skin, are fragrance-free and alcohol free. This should help support and maintain skin health.

A simple skincare routine could help the state of your acne and skin health.
