Probably when you get a headache, you don't think about your makeup causing it, but it could be true. Headaches have an awful lot of triggers and causes, among them fragrances and some ingredients. Makeup of all types contains multiple ingredients, and you may find that you need to figure out just what might be causing your headache.
First, make sure that it's actually something in your makeup routine that is causing you to have headaches. One of the easiest ways to do this is to monitor yourself. On the weekend, have a makeup free day and pay attention to whether or not you experience a headache. On days that you wear makeup, pay attention to whether a headache develops and keep track of how long after you put on your makeup the headache shows up.
Once you've determined that your makeup likely is the culprit, narrow down which beauty product is causing the problem. Put on only one item from your regular routine and wait. If you get a headache, that product is possibly the culprit. The trick is, you need to do this with all of the items you use. You may also find that two products used together may be causing your headache.
There is a lot of trial and error involved in this, unfortunately, but if your makeup is causing you to get regular headaches, you'll experience amazing relief by weeding out the products responsible. One way to replace your makeup once you know what you have to eliminate is to move to natural or organic products. Often these companies offer sample sizes for sale, so you can try out the new cosmetic to make sure that it doesn't create headaches for you.
Another solution is to make your own cosmetics. By going this route, you can control exactly what ingredients go into your makeup. Regardless, if your makeup is giving you a headache, it's worth it to troubleshoot the problem and find a solution that works for you.
