Spring Skin Allergies and Irritants 2015

Spring is finally here. Unfortunately, for many, with spring comes allergies. And, with allergies skin rash or irritation may occur.
According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, skin allergies prompt approximately 5.7 million doctor visits annually.
Allergic contact dermatitis is the term used for a rash or irritation of the skin that occurs when allergens, substances that the immune system reacts to as foreign, touch your skin. It’s estimated that atopic dermatitis affects up to 3 percent of adults.
Both AspireLIFE’s Essential Essence and Complete Sunscreen contain high-quality, specialized ingredients that will help to prevent allergic skin reaction and soothe and calm skin.
One of these ingredients is Licorice Extract, which has been tested in vitro to demonstrate anti-inflammatory effects, anti-hyaluronidase activity, UV-erythema reduction, and inhibition of histamine release. By inhibiting histamine release, the potential effects of skin rash from allergic reaction is significantly reduced.
Both the Essential Essence and Complete Sunscreen also incorporate an Algae Extract rich in amino acids, polypeptides, and cell membrane carbohydrates combined with Mugwort (Artemisia Vulgaris) Extract a plant from the mountains. These two ingredients act to reduce skin irritation, stinging, and inflammation.
By inhibiting histamine release and providing anti-inflammation relief, AspireLIFE products reduce the probability of allergic skin reaction to foreign allergens.


Top Skin Allergy Triggers To Avoid

Perfumes and Fragrances: Unwanted Scents

Perfumes and fragrances are among the most common causes of contact allergies in adults, and this type of allergy is on the rise. But it's not just the stuff you use to smell good. Fragrances that may cause an allergic reaction are found in hundreds of products, including shampoos, soaps, body washes, and household products like room sprays, cleaners, laundry detergents, and dryer sheets. AspireLIFE uses absolutely no fragrance in any of its products.

Hair Dye and Henna Tattoos

Contact dermatitis from hair dye is caused by sensitivity to para-phenylenediamine (PPD), which is found in permanent hair dyes that are mixed with another chemical, such as peroxide, before they're applied. About 25 percent of people who are allergic to PPD are also allergic to ingredients found in semipermanent hair dyes. Follow the patch-testing instructions on hair dye packaging to find out if you're sensitive before applying dye to your whole head.

Harsh Preservative in Beauty Products and Cosmetics
Allergic reactions to cosmetics can be induced by fragrance allergies, but they may also be caused by preservatives used in cosmetics. Allergic reactions such as redness, swelling, and hives tend to occur in people who are allergic to specific ingredients, like formaldehyde, parabens, and thimerosal. AspireLIFE developed its own patented preservation system that contain no parabens and is completely safe and gentle.
