A new year often comes with new year resolutions, so this year make good eye health and eye hygiene one of your beauty resolutions! Not sleeping in your eye makeup at night is a must to prevent eye infections, styes, blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids), dry eyes, overgrowth of mites on the lashes and even damage to your beautiful eyelashes. Did you know that left-on mascara can cause eyelashes to become brittle, break, and fall out faster?
Getting in the habit of cleaning off your eye makeup nightly is the first step but also consider that not all makeup removers are created equal. Have you read the ingredients in your eye makeup remover to see how safe they are around the eyes?
Our research for an all-natural eye makeup remover led us to the We Love Eyes eyelid and eyelash foaming cleansers. Created by Dr. Tanya Gill, OD, We Love Eyes is the first Optometrist developed and formulated cleansing system for the eyes. The tea tree oil based foaming cleanser is antimicrobial and works against bacteria and demodex mites on the eyelashes which are often the source of inflammation, infections (styes and acne rosacea) and dry eye symptoms.
There is also a a tea tree water based formulation available which provides the benefits of tea tree without the oil, making this type of cleanser a great option for cleaning eyelash extensions.
The best part is these products are all natural, all vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, gluten-free, preservative-free, formaldehyde-free and petrochemical-free! So whether it’s safe makeup removal or relief from dry eye & blepharitis symptoms this system will do the dirty work for you. The best way to figure out what type of cleanser is best for you is to have a discussion with our Optometrists so that we can determine together what type of cleanser would best suit your eye health needs.
