    Well, it seems that you would like to apply mascara to your eyes on a regular basis. Despite the fact that it would make your eyes appear more attractive. However, there are some setbacks in the meantime. For example, it would give rise to blepharitis which is a serious problem, because of chemical stuff and some bacteria. Therefore, I suggest that you reduce the times using mascara.

    Yes, Heavy mascara can weigh down lashes and cause them to fall out. Formulas designed for maximum volume work to coat each lash, but this could be damaging for delicate lashes. Then it will make you get blepharitis. In order to cure it, you need to clean the eyelid scrupulously twice a day. The bacteria depend on skin oils to reproduce, so a gentle scrub with baby shampoo and a cotton swab can control their growth. You can also purchase commercially prepared lid scrub pads from your pharmacy.
