Mascara is damaging to eyelashes, and takes work to remove which may cause your eyelashes to fall out. Not only can it cause damage, but most mascaras contain parabens which have been linked to cancer, endocrine disruption and hormone mimicry, developmental and reproductive toxicity, allergies, skin toxicity, tissue irritation, and toxicity to various organs. Since mascara is easily absorbed by your body you might want to look for a more healthy and natural alternative. If you don't want to wear mascara but still want longer eyelashes, Vaseline as a mascara substitute might be something you want to consider.Vaseline is great for stimulating eyelash growth and also will work as a substitute for mascara. It won't hold a curl the way mascara does but it will make your lashes look shiny, thick and long. Also the Vaseline will moisturize your eyelashes to help them grow longer. To use Vaseline as mascara, just apply it like mascara with a mascara brush. Pick of the ugly little clear clumps from your lashes- and there you have it.
If you want a healthy alternative, but desperately want to wear mascara, try a natural mascara like Ecco Bella brand mascara. Click the ad on the left for more information on Amazon.
