There are a few safety guidelines you should follow if applying liquid latex to your skin. You should always patch-test a small area prior to full application. If you experience any discomfort, or a rash appears you should stop using it as you're likely to have a latex intolerance. Also, liquid latex will stick to your hair. The only way to remove latex with hair attached to it is to pull it off. (ouch!). The same applies to clothing, once it's on there it won't wash out. Liquid latex contains ammonia, for it's preserving qualities, and therefore has a strong aroma, so a ventilated room is recommended.
