While working in the hospital, I knew a nurse who became sensitized to latex gloves. She hated to put them on, because in just a few minutes, her skin would become red and sore, with a rash. After a while, she had to change jobs to administrative work, to protect her hands from the latex allergy.
Months later, she was brought to the emergency room in anaphalactic shock brought on by allergic reaction to mangos. The allergist who treated her told her that latex allergy is becoming more prevalent, and that mangos and avocados will sometimes cause a reaction in a latex sensitive person.
The question is, exactly what extracts of these fruits are in this cosmetic? If it is an extract, alcohol was used to dissolve the active ingredient out of the fruit. By definition, and extract is dissolved in alcohol. Can your face use the drying effects of alcohol?

Now you said he eats fine, What is he eating? Do you give him the daily fresh salad of greens and veggies and all the protein he can eat a couple of times a day?

Those are two things that are sooo bad for you. What are you eating at school?!? You need to be eating every 2-3 hours to keep your metabolism working.
You won't need to go on a full out diet especially at your age but try to make wiser choices eat more! Hard to believe for some but if you aren't eating a minimum of 1200 healthy foods your body goes into STARVATION mode and you gain weight not lose!
"Clean Eating" - eating healthy is the only way to loose weight and keep it off! Exercise, eat clean and you'll feel great and look amazing!
Start "Clean Eating", personally I find this to be the best plan since it's just eating "real" foods! I've been following Tosca's Cooler Plan and have seen great results with that, this might work for you too!
