It’s safe to say that we’re all on the quest for fuller longer eyelashes. And often times, we don’t think twice about the products we apply to achieve those results. However, your eyes are in fact sensitive and you should give more thought to the ingredients that are found in your makeup products ranging from your eyeliner to your mascara. You may not even be aware of what your makeup products are doing to your eyes and eyelashes apart from enhancing them.

For instance, did you know waterproof can damage your eyelashes? Dermatologist Dendy Engleman, MD, tells Shape that the ingredients found in waterproof mascara formula actually have the effect of drying out your lashes, which can ultimately result in them falling out. Plus, waterproof mascaras are harder to remove after a long day of wearing them. Trying to rub off waterproof mascara with cleansers or makeup wipes may irritate your eyes even more. However, that doesn’t mean that you should give up on wearing mascara just yet. Luckily, there are some mascaras that are perfectly healthy for your lashes. In fact, there is one drugstore mascara you should start using, according to a dermatologist.

One particular dermatologist-tested drugstore mascara is the Neutrogena Healthy Lengths Mascara. Its consistency is made up of a Vitamin E and olive oil formula so that it both naturally strengthens and lengthens your lashes. Apart from being dermatologist-tested, it has also been tested by ophthalmologists to guarantee that this mascara is safe for your eyes, eyelashes, and the skin surrounding your eye area. It’s available in three different shades: Carbon Black, Black, and Black/Brown, and you can pick it up for yourself for about $9 at Ulta Beauty stores or online.

It’s essential to be aware of the ingredients in any makeup that you apply on or around your eye area, including mascara. Dermatologist Rachel Nazarian, MD, explains to Vogue just how important this ingredient knowledge is. “The eyes are incredibly delicate and very sensitive to cosmetic additives,” Rachel says. “It’s more about what you don’t have in the ingredients that makes a mascara good.”

Furthermore, according to Medical Daily, there are certain ingredients you should avoid when it comes to picking out your next mascara purchase. Four of which include parabens, aluminum powder, propylene glycol, and retinyl acetate. Such ingredients can do more than irritate your external eye area, but they may also cause internal health hazards in certain cases.
