Freshen up your eye makeup supplies



If you’re in the mood for spring cleaning, tackle your eye makeup to reduce your risk of eye infections:

  • Replace cosmetics every six months, more frequently for contact lens wearers, to avoid contamination with skin bacteria.

  • Never use an old applicator in a fresh cosmetic product.

  • After any eye infection, such as pink eye, always buy fresh eye makeup. Otherwise you can recontaminate your eyes and have to go through treatment all over again.

  • Do not share your eye cosmetics with others. It’s tempting to allow your kids to play with your old make-up, but not worth the risk of transmitting potentially harmful bacteria.

If you notice unusual irritation, redness, drainage or changes in your vision, contact your eye doctor right away. We aim to keep your eyes healthy.
