Side Effects & Treatments

Last week I decided to use a product that contained Almond Oil, please don't get it twisted the product is amazing.

The problem is I'm allergic to almonds😳 and yes I was fully aware this product had Almond Oil inside.

In my defense sometimes people are allergic to foods only if it's digested. However this wasn't my case😕 but my flare up didn't began right away.  It started after five days of me wearing this night time treatment consecutively.

Now I won't say what product because I was responsible for using something that didn't agree with me. 

Nevertheless I still really love the product although I can't use it the results worked (At least in the beginning lol).

My nightmare started on the fifth day due to it being a night treatment you leave it on overnight and, wash your face in the morning. When I looked in the mirror my soul left my body lol seriously! 

For the most part I have good skin rarely have pimples obsessed with skincare. Pretty much following all the rules and steps for perfect skin. 

So waking up to any form of a outbreak bothers me not only because I sell beauty but my confidence.  

Back to the matter at hand my skin had these little bumps all over and dry patches. Let me remind you my skin is Oily so I am Never dry which is a clear indication of any allergic reaction. 

After I started treating the issues.

My first response was panic and the more I looked at myself that's exactly what happened I PANIC!   

My second was action recently I went to this event where companies showcased their "Green Beauty" products.

I wrote about this in my Beauty Section of the blog.

This company Mythologie gave me a sample pack of healing oils pure botanical and organic ingredients. In the small pack their was two that targeted my needs specifically.
