When applying makeup: Use an all-natural mascara without harsh chemicals.
Make sure the mascara you use is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates (the three ingredients that can cause irritation).
Many mascaras also contain polymers that hold additional water, creating a more viscous liquid and a greater volume of product on the brush. Avoid them!
Also, ensure the products don't contain hydroquinone (a bleaching ingredient) that can redden sensitive eyes.
The other factor you must pay attention to is pH balance. Mascaras that alter the delicate pH of your lashes harm them, and also exacerbate the sensitivity of dry eyes in general.
Hypoallergenic isn’t a term to be taken lightly. Ensure that the mascara you use is tested with people who look like you!! And is deemed safe for them.
