Makeup & Contact Lense Wearers
Somewhat surprisingly, women who wear contact lenses often complain about discomfort and problems with regard to the mingling of makeup and contacts. One would think that this problem would have been solved somehow, but the reality is that makeup around your eyes and eyelashes inevitably comes into close contact with your eyes, and your contact lenses. Needless to say this can lead to significant irritation and discomfort in some cases. However, for the most part, you can avoid these types of problems through a careful and logical approach. Additionally, you can help to avoid problems through what products you choose.
Here are a few of my top tips to help you out to avoid problems that might arise as a result of makeup mingling with contact lenses.
• To begin with, you should be careful about the type of makeup you purchase for use around your eyes. This is true in general, but particularly so with regard to women who wear contacts. There are plenty of hypoallergenic makeup brands such as www.aveda.co.uk which available for purchase that are safer for your eyes, that way if you do end up mistakenly having makeup in your eyes, it is less likely that there could be any sort of infection or significant irritation.
• Additionally, make sure that your Acuvue contact lenses keep your eyes moist and comfortable. Many people actually live with uncomfortable contacts without even realising it, because they are used to the feeling. However, dry or uncomfortable eyes are far more easily irritated, which means that should you have problems with your makeup, they may be somewhat mollified if your eyes are comfortable and moist.
• Finally, use common sense with regard to putting on your makeup and putting in your contacts. For example, if you were to put on all your makeup, including which is concentrated around your eyes, and then move straight to putting in your contacts, it is far more likely that you get product in your eyes. At the very least, it is necessary to wash your hands after handling makeup, and ideally you should actually put in your contacts before you touch anything else in the morning. So finally when you take out your lenses at the end of the day, you should do so before washing your face or washing your makeup off, for the same reason. Getting the proper products is important and may save you irritation, So keep to my top tips and I assure you that no problems will come about from wearing contacts with makeup.
