13. Cornea Scratches
It is important to remove eye makeup, particularly mascara, before dozing off in order to protect the eye health. Mascara tubes are the most likely playground for bacteria to emerge, and it becomes more vulnerable every time you pull out the wand. It is important to invest in a new mascara every three months to prevent this bacteria from causing harm to your eyes.
If you constantly sleep with your eye makeup, you are likely to suffer from eye inflammation as it can lead to blocked pores and sensitive glands, particularly the Meibomian Gland pores.
Dried mascara also causes the lashes to fall off, and if the lash ends up in your eye, it can even leave a scratch on the cornea, which has major hazards for your vision.
14. The Threat of Styes
Sleeping without removing mascara can not only make the lashes weaker and easily breakable, but it tends to clog up lash follicles, which can trigger styes.
15. Eyelid Eczema
Eczema on the skin is extremely common, but sleeping without removing eye makeup, mascara and liners will cause the emergence of an irritant dermatitis, basically an eczema of the eyelids.
It is a terribly painful ailment with a sharp burning sensation, itching, scaliness and even rashes.
