Tip & Suggestions
While mascaras add depth and colour to the eye area, it is not recommended for daily wear. Regularly wearing mascaras can damage the eyelashes or infect the eyelids, giving them inflammation and redness. When using mascara, start with the lower lashes, let them dry out and then apply to the top lashes to prevent them from sticking to the bottom ones. Older people with signs of ageing and dark circles around the eyes should refrain from putting mascara on the lower lashes as it can accentuate the flaws.
It is important to wash off your makeup by the end of the day to ensure the safety of your eyes and skin. Also, steer clear of mascaras that contain harmful chemicals such as coal tar dyes, Formaldehyde, preservatives, fragrances, Vitamin A Acetate and parabens.
