Your eyes are one of the most sensitive parts of your body so you must care for them properly. However, did you know that some of the things you are doing every day could be putting your eye area in danger?

In this blog, we explain some of the practical ways you can keep your eyes safe.

Clean your makeup brushes

How often are you cleaning your makeup brushes? When you use them every day they become part of your routine so it can be easy to forget about cleaning them. However, sponges and brushes will build up with old makeup and dust which you are then spreading around your face and eyes. Make sure you are cleaning your brushes regularly to prevent infections and irritation. You can do this by using warm water and soap and rinsing them throughout before leaving them to dry.

Be careful of online purchases

When ordering items online be careful about who you are buying from and the website you use. One of the most popular items to buy online for your eyes is novelty or coloured contact lenses, especially for events such as Halloween, however, there are several dangers associated with this. Since you know little about where the lenses come from they could be contaminated from the factory and contain harmful chemicals that can cause serious damage to your eyes. Furthermore, wearers are often given little to no information about proper wear and removal which could make you vulnerable to a whole list of problems.

Wear eye protection

Whether you are at work or at home, always wear eye protection when necessary. It only takes one sharp piece of material or flying debris to cause permanent damage, so keep your eyes well covered with goggles.
