Eye Friendly Cosmetics & Makeup in Richmond Hill, Ontario


Your Makeup May Be Causing Dry Eyes & Contact Lens Discomfort

Makeup and cosmetics can offer creative ways to transform your skin. But it’s important to pause and reflect on what we put around our precious eyes. Many cosmetic products contain ingredients that can harm your eyes and body, contributing significantly to dry eye.

At Dr. Zargar Eyecare, we know your eyes deserve high-quality care and products. It’s not always easy to understand the long list of ingredients and chemicals in many over-the-counter products, and that’s why we’re thrilled to introduce a line of products that can enhance your natural beauty and support your eye health.

The Importance of Hypoallergenic Cosmetics in Eye Care

“Hypoallergenic” might seem like a buzzword, yet it stands for something vital—makeup that contains fewer allergens. Hypoallergenic products are geared towards minimizing allergic reactions and irritations, which can make them a safer choice for those with sensitive skin or eyes.

Even if you don’t have sensitive skin, hypoallergenic products can help you avoid clogged pores and harmful chemicals.

How Can Eye Makeup Aggravate Dry Eye Symptoms?

Every stroke of eyeliner or mascara swipe might subtly sabotage your eye health—from toxic ingredients causing tear film instability and irritation to lash extensions leading to blepharitis and Demodex buildup—so it’s crucial to select products wisely.

Applying eyeliner on the waterline of your eyes can block oil glands and leave you with dry, red eyes. Plus, makeup with oil can spread throughout the day, causing issues with contact lenses and clouded vision.

Being mindful about your chosen products and how you use them can make all the difference.

Let Your Skin Breathe: Take Off Your Makeup Before You Sleep

No matter what makeup brand you love, you should never sleep in your makeup, even if it’s formulated for sensitive skin.

During the day, your skin barrier is active, working to ward off sun damage and oxidative stress. But at night, your skin enters a state of relaxation and repair.

Your makeup can prevent your skin from breathing and healing. When you leave it on overnight, it can clog your pores and oil glands, potentially triggering inflammation and destroying natural collagen.

Good hygiene is crucial for keeping your skin glowing and your eyes healthy.
