It is necessary to wash synthetic hair wigs after 18 to 20 wears at maximum otherwise they stink bad. A greasy, messy wig is definitely a turn off and it does more bad than good. Washing synthetic wig is nothing tedious; it does not any involve complex process either. You only need to grab the correct supplies in order to keep everything smooth.

2014 has been a great year regarding circle lenses. We noticed new innovations, advanced technologies & contact lens cases that ensure thorough cleansing & disinfection. Though, 2014 has been a boon for circle lenses, we observed how consumers risked their vision by neglecting to take care of their eyes & circle lenses. All contact lens wearers should stay meticulous and must learn from the lessons we got from 2014.
- Say NO to Over-Wearing & Sharing of Contact Lenses
Circle lenses & contact lenses must not be worn beyond their expiry date. Always follow the replacement schedule strictly. Sharing your circle lenses and over wearing them increases the chances of bacteria accumulation that may lead to conjunctivitis, corneal fungus & abrasions. In severe complications, vision loss is also a horrendous aftermath of ignoring the expiry date of circle lenses.
- Pragmatic Approach to Contact Lens Cleansing Enables Easy Management in Allergy Seasons
We observed in 2014, that pragmatic approach to contact lens cleansing makes it easier to manage allergies. It becomes necessary to thoroughly disinfect your circle lenses before and after wearing them as Pollen and air pollutants stick to the surface of circle lenses when the pro-allergy seasons turn nasty. Disinfecting your circle lenses, this way in 2015; will keep your eyes healthy throughout the year-yes even when the irritants are floating most in the air.
- Treating Discomfort Induced by Circle Lenses using Special Spray
Australian researches discovered in 2014 that why some people find it uncomfortable to wear contact lenses. According to them “lipid degeneration” turns their eyes dry which as a result makes it painful for eyes to develop acquaintance with circle lenses.
Using FDA approved circle lenses, eye drops & cosmetics help halfway; whereas using liposomal eye spray can completely tackle the issue. Doctors also suggest wearing circle lenses specially designed for people with dry eyes if you experience the same discomfort.
Circle lenses have changed lives for good. Today, in 21st century; we cannot imagine of a life lacking the miracles of circle lenses. Movies, conventions, cosplays & celebrities all find it fun to change their appearance using circle lenses. In fact, circle lenses gave rise to emerging online stars; say Ulzaang and gyarus. Be an inspiration for others & get your FDA approved circle lenses for a new look in New Year!

|L-R Finn Wittrock, Domhnall Gleeson and Jack O'Connell in a scene from "Unbroken. (Universal Pictures.) |
Contact lenses with 38% water content and 8.6mm base curve fit most of the people unless you are diagnosed with rare diseases or eye shapes. However, one must not forget that contact lenses are not one size fit all. Certain medications & life style do leave impact on contact lens tolerance & fitting-even weight loss.
Reducing too much of your body mass in a short period of time might make your body feel starved & de-hydrated. The fresh example is actor Domhnall Gleeson; who recently has lost too much weight for Anjelina Jolie’s Movie “Unbroken” that his contact lenses no longer fit him.
The story line of the film rotates around World War II; where his plane was gunned down over the Pacific Ocean & he was left all alone at the shore until he was rescued by Japanese sailors who kept him in prison for two years with little food for his survival.
|Gleeson loses so much weight that his contact lenses no longer fit|
To put a life in his character; actor took the job seriously & lost so much of his weight that he dropped contact lens size. O’Connel- the co-star said in a press conference; "Domhnall lost so much weight, even his eyeballs changed shape."
"It's true," laughed director Angelina Jolie, noting the actors wore special lenses to make their eyes look bloodshot. "They fit when he was starting to lose weight and then by the time we got to the end of the raft section, they wouldn't go into his eyes. I think it was the dehydration."
Strange fact; but yes looks like your cornea changes shape; as you lose weight. Even your eyes go skinny. Until eye professionals come forward to address this issue; we have no other option than assuming that reducing excessive weight specially in a short span may lay adverse effect on contact lenses’fit.

Although contact lenses when inserted before applying makeup can reduce the contamination risks, care should be taken whilst using cosmetics along with circle lenses. People having sensitive eyes are more prone to develop eye infections due to contamination of makeup buildup over the surface of contact lenses which later transfer itself to the cornea, causing corneal abrasion.
Though cosmetics contain preservatives to stop the growth of bacteria, they do contain irritants which can be harmful for the eyes. It has been reported that some women with sensitive eyes develop frequent conjunctivitis due to mishandling their cosmetics or because of a contaminated applicator.

Circle lenses & makeup application go hand in hand. Makeup cannot be avoided when wearing circle lenses as circle lenses without makeup, may look too fake to look attractive. To keep your eyes protected always use hypoallergenic cosmetics or those with little to no fragrances as some people’s eyes show adverse effects against fragrances.
8 Safety Tips with Makeup & Circle Lenses
- Do not use cosmetics beyond their expiry date
- Do not use old mascara applicator with the new product. It might have been contaminated
- Apply eye liner away from the lash line
- Keep your eye pencils sharp and use soft pencils so that the wood does not scratch
- Avoid using lash-fiber mascaras when wearing circle lenses
- Never apply eye makeup or insert/takeoff your circle lenses when in a moving vehicle. You can accidentally poke your eyes.
- Avoid using eye shadows with metallic-sheen, glitters or mineral cosmetics. They can flake off, or get into eyes that contaminate circle lenses & may induce irritation- eye infections.
- Do not wear eye makeup during contact lens fitting exam.
Circle lenses are meant to boost up your self-confidence whereas makeup application is to enhance your personality. Care should be taken in order to stay prevented from mishaps; you only have one set of eyes.

We all secretly envy the glow Korean women wear. Though climate seems to play a significant role; much of it can be achieved through following the same skin care regime that they follow. Korean skin care emphasizes on a sheer glow that only becomes possible when your skin is well-hydrated, moisturized & nourished. Korean skin care is aggressive & comprehensive. Sticking to Korean skin care methods & products can ensure you achieve the healthy glow but it might be time consuming so brace yourself before you begin the new venture.
Importance of Double Cleansing in Korean Skin Care Routine:
There is no concept of “mere cleansing” in Korean skin care methods. To achieve, impeccable skin texture; always cleanse your face two ways. The first step is to remove makeup residuals, dust & dirt particles by using a light oil coconut, almond or olive. If on the other hand you prefer convenience; go for Skin79 makeup wipes. These Skin79 makeup wipes are soaked in essential oils that swiftly remove makeup without harsh rubbing or causing sagging of tissues.
This superficial cleansing is then followed by deep cleansing for which a foam cleanser is required. Use Skin79 BB facial foam cleanser. It does not only act as a cleansing agent but it also exfoliates softly to remove dead skin cells and makeup residues effectively.
Korean Skin Care: How to Cleanse the Korean Way?
Cleansing is given utmost attention in Korean skin care routine. The rule of thumb is to spend the same time in cleansing your face that you spend on putting things on your face. For instance, if you take 30 minutes putting makeup on, you should consume same amount of time in taking them off.
As per Korean skin care; circular movements increases the blood circulation that brightens the complexion. Therefore always cleanse your face using gentle circular motions of your finger pads. Never go harsh or vigorous-stay gentle. The brief massage when done on daily basis, keeps the blood flowing through the right channels.
Korean skin care regime is repetitive. It rotates around the same techniques of cleansing & exfoliating on both daily & weekly basis. It is tad overwhelming but the results are worth it.

Dry eye syndrome affects over 25 million Americans & more than 100 million people worldwide. With the onset of winters; the syndrome begins to strengthen its roots thus instigate dryness, eye sores and grittiness, itching & burning sensation among contact lens wearers. Dr. Stewart Shofner-renowned surgeon of “Shofner Vision Centre” suggests 5 dry eye relief tips to release the discomfort that is subject to disturb twice more to wearers of contact lenses.
Dr. Kevin Johnson of Shofner Vision Center adds, "Contact lens wearers in particular are subject to dry eye symptoms because the dry air reduces the moisture in the contact lenses.”
During winter the tear film that keeps eyes moist is disturbed due to cold weather & dry air. Wearing contact lenses further worsen the symptoms.
"Dry eye syndrome is much worse in the winter as people tend to stay indoors where warm dry air is prevalent," says Dr. Shofner
How to Relieve Dry Eye Symptoms in winter among Wearers of Contact Lenses?
As a wearer of contact lenses and a patient of dry eyes syndrome, be preventive about following:
- Stay away from direct air. Air conditioners, hair dryers, car heaters & vents should not be directed towards eyes. Do not ride a bicycle or motor bike without protective eye goggles whilst wearing contact lenses.
- In winter when there is an advanced use of gas/electric heaters and when the fire places are always active; use a humidifier to add moisture to dry indoor air. If dryness is not dealt like a pro; especially if you wear contact lenses you are more prone to develop eye sores, scratches & corneal abrasions
- Use lubricants along with prescription eye drops such as Systane and Restasis. They work with one’s own tears to re-hydrate, soothe & reduce the inflammation. They also help your eyes produce more tears to keep eyes lubricated. This increases tolerance for contact lenses & help reduce discomfort associated with contact lenses.
- Stay away from air pollution, BBQ smoke & cigarette smokers. Those who smoke should reduce smoking or if possible should totally stop it for a while. Smoking is dangerous in 3 ways for cigarette smokers who wear contact lenses.
Dr. Shofner says, "Patients can be treated for dry eye syndrome with quick and convenient procedure such as LipiFlow® or cauterization. Using the correct eye drops can also be helpful, and there is no reason for anyone to suffer from dry eyes”
Eating healthy-introducing fruits & green vegetables & increasing liquid diet also helps combat against dry eyes syndrome for people wearing contact lenses.

Contact lenses are not one-size-fit-all. Yet, there are some simple rules about contact lens fitting, as the average size of a human iris is 14mm. Contact lenses with a base curve of 8.6 mm fits most of the people whilst the water content of 38% keep circle lenses moist & your eyes hydrated.
Meeting your Eye Care Professional
- If you are wearing contact lenses for refractive index correction, you should meet your ophthalmologist for prescription needs such as astigmatism.
- People who wear contact lenses for personality enhancement should also meet eye care professional as there are several conditions that might affect contact lens tolerance such as the use of certain medication like birth control pills.
- An eye care service provider will check your eyes to see if you are a successful candidate of contact lenses. Depending on your eye types; he will recommend you contact lenses that will fit your eyes whilst ensuring the maximum comfort.
Health of Cornea
- One should take note of the corneal health. Tear film evaluation often describes how your corneas behave with contact lenses. Some people find it uncomfortable to wear contact lenses. This happens because of the quick degeneration of lipid that is actually the upper most layer of tear-film; serving as the barrier between foreign substances and your eyes.
- In case of dry eyes syndrome; use FDA approved authentic eye drops. Not everyone needs eye drops. Circle lenses with water content 38% and above are comfortable to most of the eyes. However; people with sensitive eyes may opt for circle lenses above 50% water content or disposable circle lenses.
- If your eyes go worst when allergy season hits then you need to be extra careful & vigilant about the health of your eyes. This is how to manage contact lenses with allergies. (Also read: Contact Lenses, Dry Eyes & Winter)
- If you spend bigger portion of your day at working on computer then you are more likely to suffer from computer vision syndrome. Since working at computer alters the “blinking-rate” it indirectly affects the tear film production & aggravates the symptoms with contact lenses. This is how to manage contact lenses with computer vision syndrome.
