Common triggers

Skin allergies can be caused by harsh chemicals in everyday products. These include:

  • Face creams
  • Make-up
  • Shampoo and body wash
  • Perfumes
  • Sun cream
  • Detergents

Options for sensitive skin

If you have a skin allergy, try to use gentle, allergy-friendly products. Look out for fragrance-free alternatives made without parabens, and shower with warm water to help protect the skin’s natural oils.

When washing your clothes, opt for non-bio laundry detergent, which is less irritating to skin.

Finally, try to steer clear of nickel – a metal that can be found in coins, belt buckles, and some jewellery, which can cause an allergic reaction. Check that any jewellery or belts you purchase are nickel-free.
