RED EYES! Old makeup causes inflammation and therefore turning our eyes red. The inflammation will also affect our eyelids, making them red and heavy looking. We want beautiful white eyes not heavy tired eyes!
WRINKLES! Our eyelid skin is very thin. Old makeup is harder to remove and therefore will require more vigorous scrubbing leading to more unnecessary wrinkles.
STYES! Styes are ugly big red bumps on our eyelids that can be very painful. They are not something we want to be walking around with. Plus they can lead to other more serious eyelid infections. Old makeup is a perfect breeding ground for bacteria.
CONTACT LENSES! Don’t make your contacts hate you, the inflammation and irritation that comes along with it will cause you to feel uncomfortable in your contact lenses.
TOXICITY! Unfortunately most of our eye makeup is filled with toxic ingredients. Leaving these ingredients on your skin over night can increase the chances of skin reactions to the products.
MITES! Yes, unfortunately demodex mites live on our bodies naturally. Leaving old makeup on creates a breeding ground for bacteria and demodex love them some bacteria. They will feast and flourish in the eyelash follicles leading to more inflammation, which can potentially cause your lashes to start falling out.
ALWAYS REMOVE MAKEUP BEFORE BED! Eye Q Organics Kakadu Plum Makeup Remover offers a non-toxic organic alternative to some of the conventional options. Follow each makeup removal session with cleansing of the eyelids and lashes.
