Gritty Pretty's Editor-in-Chief shares her favourite Australian products
With so many options on the market, maintaining the basic health of your eyes is more important than ever. Even though we love a good tint or mascara as much as the next beauty lover, these treatments and cosmetics can cause extra stress and damage when used on a regular basis.
If you’re looking to grow out your lashes, or give them a break from ongoing cosmetic treatments, we recommend:
- Taking breaks in between: Even though we love the look of wide awake eyes, these treatments can place undue stress on delicate eye skin and lids. Give your hairs a break in between treatments to allow them to regenerate and regrow.
- Take days off cosmetics: You heard us! Even though we love a full face, the weight of mascaras, ongoing exfoliation and makeup remover can place additional strain on this delicate hair and skin. See if you can go makeup free 1-2 days a week – a dedicated curler can help.
- Apply a serum: Specifically formulated for the delicate eye area, these non-irritating serums can help moisturise, replenish and soothe your lashes. All body hairs grow best when nourished from the inside out, so a serum can be a great way to define individual lashes while nurturing them without turning to a mascara.
