5 Safe Tips to Use Eye Makeup to Avoid Irritation

Using eye makeup such as mascara, eye liner, or eye shadow does perfect your makeup. However, you need to be careful when using and choosing the product. Because the eye is a part of the body that is very sensitive and easily irritated.

Tips when using eye makeup

To maintain eye health, here are some things that should be your concern, namely:

1. Avoid harmful ingredients

Before buying various eye makeup, make sure that you buy products with safe ingredients. For that, first read the product label before deciding to buy it. Especially if you have dry and sensitive eyes. Choose products that are hypoallergenic and made from natural ingredients.

An ophthalmologist in Ohio, Shalini Sood-Mendiratta, MD., States that you should avoid ingredients such as kohl, BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole), urea, sulfate, and phthalates. These ingredients are used as makeup preservatives, but unfortunately can irritate the skin. In fact, if used in large quantities and long periods of time can increase the risk of cancer.

2. Be careful in using glitter makeup

Glitter eye shadow does give the impression of luster and makes the eyes more beautiful. However, this type of makeup turns out to be the most common cause of cases of corneal infection. The glitter flakes on the product can easily enter and irritate the eyes. This is especially true for people who have dry, sensitive eyes, and contact lens users.

3. Make sure the makeup has not expired

Who says only food and drinks can expire? Makeup is also one of the products that can expire, you know! Try to pay close attention, usually the expiration date is printed on the box or on the packaging.

When the product has been opened and used, germs are very easy to enter. If bacteria or fungi enter, your eye makeup products have been contaminated. Especially if you continue to use it even though it has passed the safe limit date. The risk of eye infections will also increase.

Therefore, always make sure that the product you are using is still in use. In fact, Dr. Sood recommends that you not use eye products for more than three months. The reason is that the cause of infection easily grows in cream or liquid makeup.

4. Use the right section

Always use eye makeup such as an eye liner outside the lash line. The goal, to avoid obstruction of oil glands in the upper or lower eyelids. This gland secretes oil which is responsible for protecting the cornea or eye surface.

If you use it right on the eyelid line or on the inside along the eyelid, the oil gland will be blocked. In addition, this method can also make bacteria can go directly into the eye. Especially for those of you who have dry or sensitive eyes, you should avoid this one method.

5. Don't wear it while moving

Many people use makeup on vehicles because they are rushed by time. But for eye makeup, it's best to use it only when you are in a state of silence, not in a vehicle that is on the road.

The problem is that uneven road conditions or sudden brakes can make you actually accidentally glance with the product applicator. According to Dr. Sood, this can injure the cornea and cause serious eye infections.

6. Don't share or exchange makeup

In fact, sharing eye makeup with friends and other people increases the risk of infection. The reason is, germs obtained from other people due to exchanging eye makeup can be dangerous for you. Therefore, make eye makeup as a personal item that should not be lent to other people.

If sharing is not permitted, you also should not just try eye makeup in malls. Because the risk of contamination and infection is greater. You never know there are tens of people who try these products with a variety of eye problems they have.

From now on, let's take care of your eye health more carefully when using makeup.
