The Drs: Waterproof Mascara Warning
Dr Rachael Ross knew that many women struggle with a very cluttered makeup bag. She said there’s one potentially harmful item in that bag that you can go ahead and get rid of right now: waterproof mascara. She explained that the chemicals and silicone used to make the mascara waterproof is actually toxic to your eyelash and can cause itchy, watery eyes. If your lashes are falling out, it can make you look older. Look for a natural, non-waterproof mascara, or look for one free of preservatives and fragrances.

A live-action version of Cinderella will debut in theaters March 13 and there’s been a lot of buzz about Cinderella’s waist-cinching ballgown, worn by actress Lily James. James wasn’t a fan of the corset trend and was forced to follow a liquid diet while filming scenes in the dress. While wearing the corset, solid foods wouldn’t digest properly, so she had to primarily consume soup.
She said, “I think it’s so important to be healthy and confident and natural and not put too much stress on trying to be thin.”
The Drs: Garment Bag Health Risk
The Doctors then shared that there’s a common household item hanging in your closet that is potentially hazardous to your health. Airtight vinyl garment bags can trap in moisture leading to mold and mildew. You should instead use a garment bag that is breathable, such as canvas, to let air circulate freely through the clothes. If you got your clothes dry-cleaned, don’t leave the clothes in the bags, because they can trap in harmful cleaning chemicals. Let your clothes breathe.
