OK I think I may have figured out what this rash thing is - I remembered the other night when I had the white algae mask on I went to open the dishwasher to get a sippy cup for my daughter, and it was still hot, so a wave of hot air kind of hit me in the face - now the same area, around mouth nose above lip, chin, has the rash!!! Please please please tell me that this is going to heal and not be like this forever! My face is just so bumpy, little tiny bumps. Im so worried that I may have permanent damage????


amylola,

do not fear! in that case, i am sure that what you have is just plain old dermatitis, which will go away in time. Your skin just reacted to the hot air + the mask en meme temps. I am positive this will not be forever. my recent reaction lasted about a week, and i was patient and let it run its course until it formed a scaley crust, which i then exfoliated systematically over the course of about four days. like you, i sincerely thought that the texture of my skin had just suddenly changed forever. it might be a form of heat rash, too--my boyfriend got sun/heat poisoning in mexico last year and his poor back was covered in spots and tiny skin colored bumps. everyone's skin reacts differently to everything--just be happy that you found the cause--because there is nothing worse than not knowing what is breaking you out!

have faith! have faith! and treat it nice!

oh, just wanted to add, since it might not be clear from my previous post, that what you describe sounds like classic mild dermatitis on facial skin.

I agree with avalange. At least now you know what causes it so you can avoid it in the future. I have similar reaction to heat, but only on my body. But since it's on my body I just treat it with Jurlique Calendula Cream and use a really gentle body cleanser. I really hope your skin gets better soon.

THank you avalange!!!
I was starting to think that my skin was going to be forever changed, like those older men you see sometimes with the funky skin texture!
I will look up dermatitis and see if there is anything else to do for it.
Thanks - amy

Weleda Skin Food *is* wonderful for burns and such and is likely to help your problem. however, i found Skin Food too rich for my face (this is me, not necessarily you) and it broke me out. just wanted you to be aware.... if you do a search, i think Skin Food saved Mebsy's skin when she got too much sun and she had no problems whatsoever. i also think that it may not break you out when you really need it (like now) versus using it when your skin isn't in need (like when i used it). does that make sense?

update on the osea (not to derail the thread from its current derailment) - last night I used the red algae mask. I was in my steamy bathroom so it didn't really dry, and when I tried to take it off, it felt like trying to wash off butter with plain water. So I whip out the cleansing milk, and that felt like it helped a bit in getting this layer of goo off. I look in the mirror and practically scream because my mascara has gone absolutely everywhere, has mixed with the oils from the mask and the milk, and now I just look like a greasy freakshow. So I turn to the ocean cleanser and that seemed to get everything off. I was a little horrified.

But I woke up this morning and my face is soft and clear. Like La vie, I'm finding that there is some sort of strong anti inflammatory effect in these products (not just the mud), because since I started using it, the little spots where I can tell a pimple is brewing in the evening are now completely inactive in the morning -- I wouldn't say it immediately unclogs the pore, but it really removes redness and inflammation. So lesson learned, let the mask dry first, and take off mascara ahead of time.

I understand completely La Vie, I think I'll just let nature take its course - just keep using oils and hopefully it will heal sooner than later.

or maybe mix a little Skin Food with your oils to get a lighter version???

also, amylola (and other dermatitis victims)
I get this sort of often and mine is allergy related (some known, some I haven't figured out yet). What really works for me is Peter Thomas Roth Aloe-Cort -- it's a very lightweight lotion with 1% hydrocortisone (totally fine to use for a week or so)and other anti-inflammatories that does not make you break out, and it really really helps. I got it originally when I got poison oak on my face and of course I had to have the $30 hydrocortisone (my family was totally disgusted with me but I was NOT about to put that greasy drugstore ointment on my face!)

waffle,

i used to think of you as one of those serious down home sunday waffle house devotees, and then i envisioned you as one of those adorable young camoflauge girls, but now i think you look like an over-the hill televangelist trophy wife! please rectify!
re: algae masks: since they do have the algae gels as the main ingredient, they are kind of difficult to wash off, as they tend to 'melt' off the skin. i am sure that by using the milk you made things worse. i usually enlist the help of a clean damp washcloth and that does the trick just fine.

your story was hilarious though! and, in my exp, the cleansing milk does remove mascara--is it not yours? it can make my eyes sting a little, but their eye makeup remover also makes my eyes sting. go figure.

If I don't dig the Organic Pharmacy carrot butter cleanser, my next choice is OSEA cleansing mud. Smile

I'm only allowing myself to try one thing at a time...it's hard though! Laughing

the milk normally removes my mascara, but I think it smeared into the mask, and the mask was determined to stay, so...bad result. I've been using the milk in conjunction with my dermalogica microfoliant, which works great -- keeps it from drying out my face.
I would prefer that you think of me as a former televangelist with smeary mascara that, after some hard luck, has to get a job at Camouflage. After a long hard day of selling $50 pairs of panties and *other items from the back room* she goes to the neighborhood wafflehouse to cry into a belgian covered in coolwhip because she is so shamed by her wicked job.
how's that? (nah, when I worked there I was 21 and had sassy short black hair, now I'm a boring grad student)

oh my GOD! I had a nearly black (ok, "deeply espresso," by feria, very sassy, chunky 'bob' when i worked at ID. and I was also 21. and NOW I am a boring grad student!!!!! how bizarre! Now if you tell me that you study comparative literature, that will be real voodoo. ah. the good old days... I sigh when I think of Santa Cruz, and I'm itching to get back! i love that the scents of rosemary, jasmine, and the ocean accost you when you walk outdoors at any season...

re: the back room, oh my, I'll bet you have stories!!!!

avalange -- I miss warm saturdays walking along westcliff and coming back in late afternoon to get a bloody mary at the red room, right around the time that old guy with the ancient black lab would come in and start drinking irish coffee...I LOVE the smell of hot afternoon sun hitting dusty red velvet with a little whiff of coffee and old paintings of beauty queens in the background! *sigh* I love santa cruz in the summer when all the students are gone.

So for all of you whom have had this contact dermatitis, how long would you say it takes to go away fully? It's been about 4 days now, and still there, I am getting discouraged. Also I am wearing makeup over it, cause I have to its so ugly!, do you think that is OK?

dear amylola,

i think a full week, unfortunately... i am sure that it will resolve itself on its own, maybe continue with the antihistamines, or get some cortisone cream? any other ideas?

--avalange

p.s. to waffle, don't want to hijack this thread, i could talk about SC all day and night!

is it starting to feel a little more dry now? Usually that's the sign that it's finishing up. I will start to feel a bit scaly, as avalange put it. When I've gotten it, it's taken up to a week to get to that point, then another week to slough off the dry scaliness it leaves behind.

I still like it, but I'm super lazy in eye makeup removal and prefer for my cleanser to do double duty...and this stuff burns like mad if you get it near your eye.
It's still a great cleanser though!

regarding the osea d**count, Melissa just emailed me and said that they changed over to a new shopping cart module and the box for the code temporarily disappeared. But it's back now, so she said that she extends her apologies to anyone this might have frustrated in the past few days. To recapitulate, osea is offering a generous introductory d*scount to EDS members for a limited time, so if you are interested, you can pm me or la vie en rose for the code. And to reiterate, please do not post or pass the code, since osea is a very small business who only uses high quality, expensive ingredients and wants to pass those on to the consumer. enjoy, ladies!
