Sleeping in Contact lenses!

If your aware that leaving your make up on while your sleeping may damage your skin, well, the same goes to your eyes! Eye make up particles might clog glands and irritate your eyes. Aside from that, your mascara will make your lashes brittle and break easily. Errr.. Imagine yourself without lashes! Beware next time..
Relying on eye drop

Touching and Rubbing your eyes!
