Have you ever envied those who were born with those long, thick San Diego eyelashes while yours might fall a little short? A great set of eyelashes can dramatically change a person’s appearance. There are some things we can all do to take proper care of our eyelashes and keep them looking healthy and prevent them from falling out too soon. Below you’ll find some tips for taking
good care of your lashes, some you may be familiar with while there could be some new ideas too.
Remove Your Makeup
Remember how exciting it was when you were finally got to wear some mascara, how grownup it made you feel. Fast forward to the present and ask yourself if you’re doing all you can to take care of them, ie do you remove eye makeup every night. The eyelashes just like normal hair on your scalp can dry up and become brittle if not properly cared for. It’s important to remove makeup before bedtime to avoid anything getting into your eyes which could result in an infection. Using a clean cotton ball for each eye and some makeup remover is all it takes to avoid any problems.
Use a Clean Mascara Brush
While we’re on the subject of cleanliness that mascara brush can be a breeding ground for bacteria if not replaced every 3 months. If you don’t use mascara every day 6 months is frequent enough.
A trick you may not know about to have fuller lashes by applying castor oil, coconut oil or petroleum jelly at bedtime, then be sure to rinse well in the morning.
Don’t Rub Your Eyes
Rubbing your eyes will make a mess of your eye makeup and have you soon looking like a raccoon. Even if you’re not wearing makeup you could cause dirt to get into you eye and give you an infection as well as rubbing your eyes can damage the sensitive lash area.
Careful With That Curler
While we don’t all have lovely, curly eyelashes an eyelash curler will help achieve the desired effect. Once again hygiene is important so disinfect it before using to remove any old mascara that could be a breeding ground for bacteria and infection. Don’t squeeze too long – no more than 5 seconds or tug too hard to avoid any damage to the eyelashes.
Take a Break
Have a no makeup day once in awhile and allow your lashes to breathe and keep them healthy. a break from the chemicals and dyes will do them a lot of good.
