“DYI” Mascara Remover

Eyelashes are very delicate and must be treated like fine lace. Using mascara daily to enhance your eyelashes can cause dryness, that eventually can lead to lash breakage and hair loss. Try using vitamin E oil, coconut oil, extra virgin oil or baby wipes to gently remove harsh thick mascara residue before going to bed at night.
