Mascara is an affordable, fast, and easy way to make your eyes instantly pop. If you are like most women, you will never even leave the house without mascara on. However, to get the best results from your mascara and protect your eyes from infection, it’s important that you are following a few steps. From avoiding sharing to applying thick layers, this article will discuss three things you should avoid. Read on to learn more.
Don’t Share It
Sharing is caring unless it’s your mascara. The last thing you should be sharing with your friends and family members is your mascara wand. Filled with germs and bacteria, your mascara wand can easily cause eye infections in other people and spread it around. If you have to share a mascara with someone, make sure to use a separate wand.
You may hold onto your makeup for a year or more on average depending on how fast you go through it, but when it comes to your mascara, you should be replacing it every two to three months. Old mascara can cause your eyelashes to become dry and brittle, and worst of all, it can cause bacterial infections.
Don’t Apply Too Thick of Layers
Depending on the type of mascara you have and your natural lashes, you may be the type of person who applies layer upon layer of mascara. And although layers of mascara can make your eyes pop, they can also weigh your lashes down and cause them to break off in the process. If you think you need more layers of mascara to get the results you want, try switching to a volume mascara and see if that helps.
Now that you know a few things to avoid doing with your mascara, you can take better care of your eyes. To learn more about how to take care of your makeup, contact our office or schedule an appointment with Dr. Kenneth Dembny.
