Tips for Keeping Your Eyes & Eyelashes Looking Healthy

As one of the first features people notice about you, it’s important to keep your eyes looking their best. So, let your eyes do the talking with these top tips to keep your eyes and eyelashes looking healthy and bright. 

Remove Makeup Before Bed

Always. No matter how much you partied or how tired you are, always remove your makeup before crashing for the night. Leaving even the slightest amount of mascara or concealer on overnight can be extremely drying to your skin and lashes while increasing eyelash loss and breakage. And anyone who has ever had eyelash breakage knows that it can feel like an eternity for those suckers to grow back! So, do yourself a huge favor each and every night by gently removing eye makeup before bed. Make the task super quick and easy with our Eye Makeup Remover. This natural blend of oils gently wipes away even the toughest-to-remove eye makeup while simultaneously giving the delicate area around your eyes a rich treatment, ultimately helping to moisturize and stimulate strength and growth. You may even want to use a Nighttime Repairing Serum to further encourage healthy lashes. Our roll-on treatment is easy to use and provides a super blend of grapeseed oil and Vitamin E to help prevent free radical damage and reduce wrinkles – specifically around the eyes.

It’s important to note that you should never rub your eyes or use harsh soaps in the eye area. Doing so can dry out your skin and leave you prone to crow’s feet and premature wrinkles.

Moisturize

After washing your face and gently cleaning the eye area, be sure to liberally apply nourishing moisturizer around the eye area. Our Tropical Eye Cream is the perfect choice to hydrate and nourish while you sleep. During the day, use our Whipped Olive lotion to moisturize your face and keep the area around your eyes looking bright. Never skimp on moisturizer. It’s one of the best ways to protect and enhance your skin.

Pamper Your Lashes

As with pretty much every other body part, your lashes need to be taken care of and given TLC once in a while in order to stay healthy and strong. To give your lashes extra pampering, occasionally rub coconut oil over the bottom and top lashes to improve strength and promote growth naturally. You can then add a lash-boosting growth formula or simply get some sleep. Hitting the hay is one of the best things you can do for your lashes and health.

Use a Curling Mascara

Ditch the eyelash curler once and for all. Save time (and your lashes!) with curling mascara instead. There’s no need for that painful contraption anymore thanks to some fantastic formulas on the market. From the brush shape to color, you can drastically change your look with on application. Multiple coats aren’t even necessary anymore. Curlers will not only wreak havoc on your lashes but they also can damage your lash line and leave you itchy. Go for curling mascaras and save yourself time and from unnecessary pain!

Always Use Primer

When it comes to makeup application, primer can make a huge difference. It not only soothes the entire area, but can also reduce redness and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also holds makeup on better for a more seamless look. Use it after moisturizing and focus particularly on problem areas.

Concealer is Your Best Friend

Once the area around your eyes is smooth, thanks to primer, very gently dab concealer underneath your eyes. This is best done using your finger and going from the inner eye towards the center. Dab to blend. Don’t add concealer to the outer eye because this area creases and will most likely emphasize crow’s feet. Then, go ahead with our Mineral Eye Shadow to add a fresh, natural look to bring out your eyes. Our shadows are stunningly sheer and very light. With a variety of colors, you’re sure to want to try them all.

All of these tricks are just the thing to give your eyes an attractive look while keeping your lashes strong and healthy. Here’s lookin’ at you!
