Every girl has her makeup bag essentials. Mascara, eye shadow and eyeliner are usually a few of the basic eye cosmetic favorites. Although these items are a part of our daily routine, eye makeup can actually be a threat to your eye health if used improperly. Here are a few simple tips from Sioux City Journal for keeping eyes healthy and beautiful:

  • Do not do your makeup in the car

It is tempting I know, rushing to work and applying eyeliner at a stoplight. Truthfully, you are putting yourself at risk for scratching your cornea, a very painful and irritating experience.

  • Do not put makeup inside your eyes Cosmetic pencil.

Putting makeup on the inside of your lash line is a great way to accentuate the shape of your eyes, it is also a great way to give yourself an eye infection. Avoid bacteria by keeping your eye makeup outside and around your eyes.

  • Do not mix and match

While some makeup materials can technically be used on different parts of your face, it is not a good idea to use the same item for your lips and eyes. This is an easy way for bacteria to enter your eye. If you  develop an eye infection, it may be time to pitch a couple of your old eye cosmetic items.

  • Make sure to remove all makeup before you go to sleep

It is so easy to skip this step before you go to bed, but it is essential to keeping your eyes from contracting an infection. Red, itchy eyes in the morning could be a result of this bad habit.

If your eyes are red, itchy, or irritated due to makeup use, visit your nearest Dr. Tavel location. Dr. Tavel locations hold extended hours to make sure your eyes are always safe and healthy. If you see any signs of an infection do not hesitate to stop in!
