The New Beauty Habit That Could Save Your Eyes
What's happening: Tiny aerosol particles are notorious for landing on eyelids and irritating the skin in the area, says Brooke Jackson, MD, an associate professor of dermatology at UNC at Chapel Hill. Hairspray tends to be the worst offender.

What to try: If you can't give up your hairspray, Jackson says that washing your face after you spritz your hair will rinse away most of the potentially irritating particles.

What not to try: Don't underestimate the other sprays in your bathroom: Body mist, deodorant spray and room fresheners can also be irritants, especially for those who are sensitive to allergy triggers like dust, pollen and pets.
