Questions-True or False?
1.True or false?
Using mascara in the wrong way can cause eye injuries and infections, even blindness.
The most serious risk from mascara is scratching your eye with the mascara wand and then getting an infection from germs on the wand. To use mascara safely, follow these rules:Never apply mascara in a car, bus, plane, or any other moving vehicle. It's easy to scratch your eye if you hit a bump or come to a sudden stop.If mascara gets dried up, don't add water or - even worse - (yuck) spit into it to moisten it. This can add germs that may grow and cause an infection.As mascara gets old, it is more likely to have germs growing in it. Throw it out after three months.Don't share mascara - not even with your best friend. You might be sharing germs that way.Remove all mascara, and any other make-up, before you go to bed. Bits of mascara can flake into your eyes and cause an infection.
2.True or false?
If a product is labeled "All Natural" or "Organic," it's probably not going to irritate your skin
Remember, poison ivy is all natural, too! But you probably don't want it on your skin. It is very possible to have an allergic reaction, or other irritation, from products labeled "all natural" or "organic." For example, lanolin, from sheep's wool, is a common natural ingredient in some moisturizers that sometimes causes allergic reactions.
True or false?
3."Cruelty Free" or "Not Tested in Animals" means that no animal testing was done on the product and its ingredients.
Even if a product never was tested in animals, there's a very good chance its ingredients were. A company might call its products "cruelty-free" because it isn't doing any animal testing on these ingredients now, although the ingredients may have been tested on animals in the past. In some cases, "no new animal testing" or “finished product not tested in animals” might be a more accurate claim.
4.True or false?
Choosing products with the claim "Dermatologist Tested" is a way to avoid an allergic reaction or other skin irritation.
"Dermatologist tested" doesn't really tell you much, does it? It leaves you wondering about things like:Did the dermatologist work for the manufacturer?What types of tests were done? Extensive controlled studies or simply observing a few patients trying the product?How many people was the product tested on?How long did the testing last?What were the results of the testing?
5.True or false?
It's fine to use hair dyes on your eyebrows and eyelashes. After all, they're hair too!
Never use hair dyes on the eyebrows and eyelashes. Doing this can cause blindness. There are approved, safe colors for mascara and eyebrow pencils, but no hair dyes are approved for tinting or dyeing the eyebrows or eyelashes.
