Discomfort for sensitive eyes

Eye cosmetics use ingredients such as oils and waxes. When they enter the eyes, they might cause discomfort. These ingredients may even find their way to your contact lenses and stick there. Using dirty and expired makeup products pose a danger to your eyes as well.

When any of these scenarios happen, you could be the unfortunate victim of an eye infection. Bacteria or fungal species could find their way and affect your ability to see.

Since you will apply them in the vicinity of your eyes you have to be extra careful and vigilant. Keeping your eyes protected is a good motivator to continue practicing your eyeliner technique.

What use is there if you have the means to decorate your eyes, but they end up itchy, irritated or infected?  Eye makeup could be the very vessel where bacteria and other microorganisms grow. It is possible to bring to your eyes harmful germs when applying eye makeup. For instance, liquid or cream eyeliner could irritate the cornea if you put too much, or when excess cosmetics enter the eyes.

Similarly, sensitive eyes could react if bits of powder of cream from your eye shadow set ends up on the eye surface. Aside from the careful application of eyeliner and mascara, taking care they don’t touch the surface of the eye itself, you have to ensure you are using cosmetics that are still viable.

Safety first when putting on eye makeup

So now, you are well-versed on the risks and dangers associated with eye cosmetics application. What can you do to protect your eyes as you apply makeup? Start by using only new products designed for eye use. If you have a set that hasn’t been used up after three months, throw it away.

Consider the expiration period for liquids or creams and always check with the manufacturer. Choose eye makeup that does not contain strong compounds, especially if you are sensitive to allergens. If you are allergic to various compounds, read the label very carefully. You can always ask an allergy specialist for guidance.

Proper eye makeup removal

Mascara could become sticky at the end of a long day. Be patient and use the right kind of solution to remove it from your lashes. Avoid pointy things altogether lest you injure your eye permanently. Always remove makeup at the end of the day, and read the manufacturer’s suggestions on how to remove them properly.

No matter how tired you seem gently wash or remove eye makeup before gouging to bed. The substances you leave on could cause significant damage in time. Use water and soap, or a recommended cream.

The skin surrounding your eyes is quite sensitive. It would save you a lot of problems later on if you choose to be patient, gentle, and vigilant.
