Q&A with Dr. Carabello

Dr. Carabello Answers Your Eye Care Questions

Is wearing makeup or eye mascara harmful to my eyes?

Wearing makeup is not harmful to your eyes if it’s done properly. Some ladies use eyeliner on the inner eyelid margin instead of the outer eyelid margin where it should be worn. This can cause issues with dry eyes because it blocks the openings of the meibomian glands, which secrete oil to keep your tears on your eyes longer. Additionally, all eye makeup should be removed every night before bed. We all have bacteria that lives on our skin – it’s normal. However, the bacteria and mites that live in and around our lashes like to feed on the dried mascara and eyeliner overnight, which can cause bacterial overgrowth and infections. Replace your mascara every 3-4 months – that bacteria gets in the tube as well!
