It’s a common problem with rihanna skin products, says dermatologist Dr. James R. Farr, MD, chief of dermatology at the University of North Carolina.
“There are so many things that can cause it,” he says.
“You might have pimples on your arms, your legs, your chest.
It can happen on any part of your body.
You might be sensitive to it, too.”
The reason Rihanna doesn’t take her products off the shelves is because she wants to keep the product a secret.
But that secrecy is no longer an option for some women.
The star has an online dating profile that is not accessible to the general public, even though she does use a Twitter account.
She is even known to keep an email account on her home computer, despite its privacy setting, according to a story in Cosmopolitan.
Rihanna says she has been using the service for several years and it’s “been a wonderful resource for me.”
But many women are wary about sharing sensitive information.
“So for women who are concerned about their privacy, they’re not going to feel comfortable sharing it with someone else.”
A woman who asked to remain anonymous told Cosmopolitan she has experienced a few bumps on her arms after using Rihanna skin cream.
The problem is “really nothing serious,” she says.
“[The bumps] have gone away but there are still a couple of them.”
A dermatologist who asked not to be named says there are two possible reasons for the bumps.
One is that she’s overdoing the product.
“It’s probably something that you apply too often,” she explains.
Another reason for the bump is that the product “is not very effective” for treating skin conditions.
The dermatologist is concerned that using Rihannas products may be contributing to more skin conditions in the future.
The products are designed to help “boost your energy levels,” which is an important ingredient in any skin care routine.
But if you’re worried about sensitivities, the dermatologist says there is a way to prevent irritation.
“If you have sensitive skin and it gets worse, you should try to reduce the amount of the product you’re using and use less,” she recommends.
“I think there’s a misconception about how sensitive it is, and that’s why you’re seeing so many dermatologists who don’t really understand how sensitive this product is.”
Dr. Farring also says that if you do not use a specific skin care regimen, you may find yourself having “a rash,” a skin condition that is caused by an allergic reaction.
Rihannamics products are not approved for use on sensitive skin, but the dermatologists are taking it upon themselves to educate consumers about how to treat sensitive skin.
“We’re doing all we can to educate our customers and to make sure they’re aware of the potential sensitivities and the risks,” says Dr. Rifkin.
“This is our opportunity to educate the public about this product.”
Rihanna has not addressed the bumps on the video, and Cosmopolitan did not get a response to a request for comment.
But the star has taken to social media to respond to the controversy.
“My skin is always glowing, so my face always looks great.
It never gets dull,” she wrote.
“A few bumps in my arm are no big deal.
I’ll keep using it!
I’m sure I’ll get better.”
Rihannams product website has also been updated to include a disclaimer.
“The product I use is safe for sensitive skin,” the statement reads.
“Do not use this product if you have: a. sensitive skin b. allergies c. dermatitis d. hyperpigmentation or a combination of both.
Use only in a controlled environment.”
