5 Ways You Could be Ruining Your Eyelashes

These common habits can leave you with skimpy lashes or permanent damage.

1. You're curling your lashes after you apply mascara. 

This stiffens the lashes, which makes it easier for clumps to break off. Doing this can also cause weird bends in the lash pattern over time.

2. You're attaching fake lashes the wrong way. 

If you're a constant falsies wearer, you might have noticed your lashes thinning or even falling out. This could be a symptom of overusing faux fringe, applying heavy double layers, or removing them improperly. Never yank them off! Instead, take a cotton bud and rub oil along the lash line to loosen up the glue.

3. You're not using the right makeup remover. 

An oil-based remover will be most gentle on your lashes, especially if you're wearing a waterproof mascara.

4. You're wearing waterproof mascara every day. 

No matter what kind of makeup remover you use, there's going to be extra tugging and hairs are more likely to fall out. Even worse? The increased rubbing action can cause skin to sag around the delicate eye area. Waterproof formulas should be reserved for special occasions, like weddings and Ryan Gosling movie marathons.

5. You're not practising proper hygiene. 

Much like the pores on your face, hair follicles can get clogged as they contain oil glands. This causes inflammation that could result in hair loss and/or lashes to grow in different directions. Be sure to cleanse your lashes daily, as you would your face, and try not to touch them with your dirty fingers.

The potential health benefits of drinking green tea are almost countless. "The antioxidant EGCG has been studied to treat various diseases and may help with brain function, fat loss, and lowering the risk of cancer," says Snyder. "Polyphenols are another antioxidant plentiful in green tea and can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting our cells from aging and other diseases." Keep your sipping to one or two cups a day as green tea is high in caffeine, which is best consumed in moderation, says Snyder. As for which to buy: "It's great to use organic loose leaf tea or tea bags that contain loose leaves, which are higher quality and are less processed," she says, as opposed to tea 'dust.'
