6 Steps to Better Eyelashes

What to do -- and what not to do -- for lush, full lashes.

Want longer, thicker lashes? Start with these six lash lifesavers.

1. Take it easy. Never tug at your lashes, and avoid rubbing your eyes. "The lash root is very delicate and lashes can easily break due to our daily habits," says dermatologist Jeannette Graf, MD, of Great Neck, N.Y.

2. When using a lash curler, don't pull on your eyelids.

3. Remove your mascara before you go to sleep. (The stiffness from the mascara can break
lashes.) Use a gentle makeup remover. Pat or dab at your lids -- don't rub or pull.

4. Remove clumps from mascara when the mascara is still wet and easy to comb through.

5. Tossing your old mascara also helps keep lashes and eyes  healthy. Get a new tube every three to six months, says New York optometrist Susan Resnick, MD. That will help your mascara stay free of germs that can lead to infection.

6. If you get pink eye or another eye illness, replace any makeup that went near your eye area.
