Our Newest Post: Make Up Remover's Affect on the Eyes

Make up remover is used by many women but it can have consequences. Use of make up remover promotes inflammation, increasing risk for various eye conditions that occur in the front of the eye. Make up remover can increase your risk for dry eyes, infections, inflammatory disease, and thinning of the eyelids.

Can I use make up remover when my contacts are on?
Make Up Remover can cause damage to the silicone hydrogel that all modern soft contact lenses are made of, causing foggy vision and discomfort. You should not allow your make up remover to make contact with your soft contacts.

Alternatives to Industrial Make Up Remover


The best alternatives to your regular make up remover is Jojoba Oil or Argan Oil. Unlike traditional make up removers, these oils have anti inflammatory properties. They are used to help with skin infections, prevent skin aging, and improve wound healing.

So if you are noticing redness, irritation, or any other symptoms with your current make up remover, using an alternative may improve your eyes health. Make sure to consult your eye doctor if you have symptoms of any eye problem.
