EYES CARE MAKEUP

What Happens When You Don’t Take Off The Mascara Before You Go To Sleep…

Although it is recommended to carefully remove your make-up every night before going to sleep, most of us know what it’s like to skip the make-up removal and go straight to bed with your mascara. This attitude may seem so innocuous that for some women it becomes a habit, especially since it requires less effort, especially if you’re tired after a long day.

Yet sleeping with your mascara is a serious mistake and can lead to serious health risks. If there is one person who has suffered as a result, it is certainly Theresa Lynch, a 50-year-old American who for 25 years never took off her mascara before going to bed and almost lost her sight.

Theresa Lynch learned the hard way that you should always take off your mascara before going to bed.
One day, for no apparent reason, Theresa noticed that her eyes were irritated. She felt something uncomfortable under her swollen eyelids, and after using eye drops to try to relieve her symptoms with no results, she decided to go to her doctor.

What he discovered was a shock to both him and Theresa: there was a multitude of small black calcified bumps under her eyelids that had formed over the years from mascara residue.

These concretions, which were deeply embedded in the inner membrane of her eyelids, posed a serious risk to Theresa’s vision. As a result, she had to have them removed during surgery under general anesthesia.

Dr. Dana Robaei, the surgeon who operated on Theresa, said later:

She has permanent scars on the eyelid and the surface of the cornea. It was something incredible, I’ve never seen anything like it. But it’s a risk that few people are aware of. »

Few women are aware of the risks to their health of certain attitudes that they carelessly adopt in everyday life and which, if repeated over time, can cause a great deal of damage not only to their beauty but also to their health.

The damage caused by keeping make-up on overnight
Not only does wearing make-up all day long have deleterious effects on the skin, but keeping it on for many hours at night without cleansing it can seriously damage the skin’s health and radiance: when it is almost constantly under a layer of foundation, powders and other cosmetic products, the skin ages faster, becomes damaged, dehydrated and is more likely to suffer from inconveniences such as acne.
