Protect Your Lashes from Bad Habits

Whether you’re a falsies girl, you have semi-permanent lashes, or you prefer to go all natural, lashes are really important to framing your face and finishing a look. However, many women still have bad habits which cause them to lose lashes and stunt growth, so we thought we’d take a look at some of the bad habits that many women have, so that you can protect your lashes in the future:

Using Harsh Cleansers

We all know that taking your make-up off before bed is important, but using harsh cleansers which aren’t designed for use around your eyes can cause your lashes to fall out in much greater numbers than usual. Dermalogica Soothing Eye Make Up Remover is designed to gently remove all traces of make-up and contains silk amino acids to help strengthen lashes and condition the delicate eye lid area.

Using Old Mascara

We know that it can be annoying to replace make-up every few months, especially if you’ve bought a high-end brand or still have loads left in the tube, but using old mascara can leave you prone to lash-loss and eye infections. Infections can damage hair follicles and could permanently affect your eyelash growth.

Too Much DIY

If you have eyelash extensions, proper care should mean than your natural lashes aren’t affected. However, pulling them out yourself instead of getting them professionally removed can pull your lashes out and damage the lids, leaving you prone to scarring and infection. Always allow a qualified technician to do your removal.

Neglecting Your Eye Area

Your eye area is delicate and needs regular care to stay in the best condition possible. Even if you don’t feel that you need an eye cream for anti-ageing purposes, using one to keep the whole eye area in good condition is essential for healthy lash growth. Dermalogica Total Eye Care SPF15 is ideal and will protect you from UV rays, too.

Rubbing Your Eyes Too Much

It’s the end of a long day, you’ve removed your make-up and you feel like rubbing your tired eyes. STOP! Rubbing your eyes can prematurely loosen lashes at their roots and can make lashes fall out way before their time. Try to keep your hands away from your eyes to protect your lashes.
