If it’s your first time using a particular hair colour product, you need to conduct a 24 hour patch test in the same shade and proportion of mixture that will be used on your hair (see manufacturer’s directions). Apply the patch test behind the ear or the inside fold of the elbow. Allow the mixture to remain on the test area for 24 hours to determine if you develop an allergic skin reaction to the product.
If you have oily skin and are prone to acne, be careful about what sunscreen you apply to your face. Use an oil-free brand that is non-comdogenic and dries soft to the touch, instead of feeling greasy and moist like other brands.

This sloughs off dead skin and stimulates blood flow to the lips, making them soft and pink.
