Well, ladies, in the last few weeks, a number of new clients have mentioned itching on the lid lines. We recommend when removing eye make-up usage of eye make-up removers that are free of irritants and allergens.
There are many good removers available, but they all share ingredients that may cause irritation: preservatives.
If this happens to you and your eye doctor has ruled out other causes, we strongly recommend that you thoroughly flush the eye area with clear, warm water after using a commercial eye make-up remover.
If irritation persists after a few days of this, you may want to try what we here at YNS use and love: Jojoba Oil
Jojoba Oil is technically not an oil, but a liquid wax extracted from the seed of a native shrub found in Arizona, California, and Northwestern Mexico. It is a safe and natural moisturizer with a long list of benefits. It’s been used in folk medicine for hundreds of years because of its purity and healing properties. While we love it for its multiple uses for hair, body, face, baby, and even to soothe eczema, we also found it to be a gentle, effective eye makeup remover that leaves no residue and contains no preservatives.
Here’s what makes Jojoba oil unique: It’s very similar to human sebum; it’s extremely safe to use; it has a high content of beneficial minerals and vitamin E; it prevents damage from free radicals, and it’s antibacterial.
1. Choose a USDA certified organic oil that is cold-pressed and 100 percent pure. Look for a light-weight oil to minimize tugging on the delicate skin. Most likely you’ll find this grade in a pharmacy or online.
2. Schedule a consultation with us, if you’re not sure what to buy.
3. Enjoy the added benefit of a great conditioner for your eyelashes.
And finally, make sure you discard your mascara — another possible source of irritation — after six months.
