1. STOP Using Expired Mascara.
Simple but overlooked.
Your mascara expires. And when it does, the chemicals in it harm your lash strength.
2. STOP Using Heated Lash Curlers.
They make your lashes bendy leading to (even) easier breakage.
3. STOP Using Harsh Mascara
Non-hypoallergenic mascara (one that contains preservatives) can irritate your eyes, making you rub them more frequently. This results in lash loss. Always use a pH balanced, gentle product.
4. STOP Using Water-Proof Lash Products
Water-proof mascaras are a nightmare to get off. They dry out mature lashes, making them thinner, and more prone to breakage.
5. STOP Pulling out Falsies.
Most false lashes come with cheap adhesives. Pulling them out leads to broken and damaged lashes. For women over 50, this means more lash problems.
6. STOP Using Mascaras Meant for 20-Year Olds.
This one is HUGE.
Most mascaras that you see in the market today don’t cater to mature women.
❌ They DON’T have wands to separate and coat thin, tiny lashes. This creates lumps.
❌ They ARE NOT hypoallergenic. You get red, watery, irritated eyes. And smearing.
❌ They DRY OUT lashes with water-proof formula. Mascara on dry lashes flakes.
❌ They ARE NOT easy to take off! And further damage lashes over a period of time.
