THREE REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD CARE ABOUT EYELID HYGIENE

Burning. Itching. Redness. And these are only a few of the symptoms people with poor eyelid hygiene can experience.

Your eyelids protect your eyes from foreign bodies, dust particles, and so much more. But what happens when your eyelids aren’t protected? Many people overlook their eyelids or underestimate their importance — until they experience the negative effects of poor hygiene for themselves.

Here’s what can happen when you don’t keep your eyelids clean:

POOR HYGIENE AND SWOLLEN EYELIDS

When you go too long without cleaning your eyelids, it can cause a condition called blepharitis, in turn causing your eyelids to become swollen and inflamed. It’s a painful condition that can cause eye watering, red eyes, itchy eyelids, and so many more uncomfortable symptoms.

Blepharitis is troublesome and irritating enough as it is, but it can also lead to more serious and painful complications, such as sties or chronic pink eye.

The condition can be caused by many factors, the majority of which relate directly to poor eyelid hygiene.

A FEW TOO MANY MITES

We have tiny mites living around our eyelids and eyelashes. Usually, these microscopic mites, called Demodex, pay us no harm at all! But when they increase in number, it can cause problems: eye crusting, blurry vision, and eyes that itch or burn are just a few.  

Demodex tend to thrive in areas that are difficult to clean, like your tear glands and eyelash follicles. When you don’t practice thorough eyelid hygiene, your chances of harboring more of these little bugs (and suffering the symptoms that accompany them) increases greatly!

THERE'S A REASON YOUR EYES ARE DRY

Ever wondered why your eyes feel so dry? Poor eyelid hygiene could be the cause!

Your tears are used for more than just crying. They constantly provide your eyes with important lubrication. However, if you don’t keep your eyelids clean, it can disrupt your tear quality and production. This leads to dry eye syndrome, a painful condition where your eyes sting and burn. It also causes scratchiness, excessive tearing, and decreased vision.

Keeping your eyelids clean can help prevent dry eye and all of its painful, annoying symptoms.

PREVENTION IS KEY!

So why should you care about eyelid hygiene? Because keeping your eyelids clean can help you avoid painful, unsightly eye conditions!

The way these conditions interact and cause each other to present more irritating symptoms is extremely complicated, but taking steps to prevent blepharitis, demodex, and dry eye syndrome is simple: you need to find a product that attacks all three!

Regularly using a high-quality eyelid hygiene product can help you prevent these painful eye conditions.

EYELID HYGIENE CAN BE EASY
