Ladies,can you believe this?! Eyeliners & Mascara can cause blindness (Must Read)

In an article by Daily mail,  expert talks on the dangers of applying
make-up  inside the eyelid. Read excerpts

  It is a make-up staple for women around the world.
But applying eyeliner incorrectly could damage the eyes, scientists have
warned. They say liner applied on the inside of the lash
line is very likely to move into the eye itself and cause symptoms. Eye doctors often see patients coming into clinics
with eyeliner residue stuck to contact lenses 
– or trapped in the coating over their eyes called the tear film, said
study leader Alison Ng, of the University of Waterloo, Canada. The waxes and pigments in makeup may bind to contact
lenses, reducing vision quality and potentially even causing blurred vision. Experts warn build-up of make-up on contact lenses
can also irritate the eye. Applying liner close to the eye also means the
eyeliner can become seeded with bacteria. Dr Ng added this is the first research to show that
particles from pencil eyeliner move into the eye. ‘We wanted to look at how differently eyeliner
migrated into the tear film when applied in two different ways: inside the lash
line and outside of the lash line,’ she said. For the study, three women aged between 26 and 30,
with no known eye conditions, had their eyes filmed. The volunteers were assigned to one of two groups. One applied eyeliner inside the lash line, close to
the eye, while the other applied eyeliner to the skin outside of the lash line,
further from the eye. They returned the next day and received eyeliner in
the opposite location. To test the effect of eyeliner, the researchers took
video of each participant’s eyes five to 10 minutes after applying make-up,
then counted how many particles of eyeliner moved into the eye. They found that between 15 and 30 per cent more
particles moved into the eye when eyeliner was applied to the inside of the
lash line. The makeup also moved more quickly into the eye when
eyeliner was applied inside the lash line. A second round of videotaping two hours after
applying the make-up showed there was little to no eyeliner remaining in the
tear film, Reuters Health reports. Dr Ng said: ‘We noticed that the makeup migration
happened quicker and was greater when eyeliner was put on the inner lid
margin.’ In many cases, most of the particles wash away
within two hours but they can stick to contact lenses causing greater
discomfort and are worse for sensitive or dry eyes. And it is worse if eyeliner is continuously being
applied because tiny particles are allowed to then build up, said Dr Ng. This is because many of the ingredients of eyeliner,
such as oils, silicones, gums and waxes are designed to make the product stick
so it adheres to eyelids. Dr Ng added: ‘People who wear contact lenses are
most likely to notice some problems. ‘If they have eyeliner stuck to their lenses,
increasing deposits might cause vision disruption as the lens becomes
cloudier.’ The researchers say that make-up wearers can reduce
the risk of complications by keeping products away from the inner lid margin –
and only applying eyeliner to the outside of the lashes along the eyelid. ‘With twist-up eyeliner, cut some off the end before
each use. And always make sure to fully remove eye makeup before bed.’ Dr Ng
advised: ‘If you thoroughly sharpen your pencil eyeliner before each
application and get rid of the stuff that’s stuck to the end, you’ll have a
fresh tip which can help prevent infection. However writing in the journal Eye and Contact Lens,
she warns the results may not apply to everyone because the participants were
all Caucasian. She explained that Asian people’s eyelid shapes in
particular may differ from those of the test subjects. However she added it’s unclear whether this will
affect the way eyeliner moves into the eye. Commenting on the study, Dr Joseph Ciolino, a
physician at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, pointed out the study used a
glitter eyeliner pencil to more easily spot the particles. However he said the results can likely be applied to
a range of different products, including mascara, as the dye from the make-up
can build up in the tear duct and cause excess tearing. Indeed, getting eyeliner in the tear film can be
uncomfortable, particularly for people with sensitive eyes or dry eye syndrome. People with dry eyes may have fewer tears to dilute
the makeup, Dr Ng noted.
