Eye Stye Home Remedies Tip: Check Your Make-Up Label
Expired makeup can cause eye styes.
Eye stye remedies are a bit harder to find and I don't really know why, unless most people connect a sty with pink eye or something.
I was having a hard time finding remedies for styes so I figured it's
time to add some simple ones here, all in one place, for our readers. :)
If you are looking for help with pink eye we have a bunch of pink eye home remedies here but we have also found a few simple, home remedies that have worked for folks in trying to cure stye eye which we will share below.
Common Causes of Eye Styes
Sty Eye is usually found on the eye lid causing painful blisters or
sores. It is actually a bacterial infection that somehow starts in the
eye lid and some likely causes are:
Using cosmetics that are expired
Leaving makeup on overnight
Contact Lenses that haven't been properly sanitized or changing your contacts with dirty hands.
Chronic Blepharitis .. you may have blepharitis if you tend to get eye styes a lot.
For the most part the stye will go away and you won't have to see a doctor, but there are ways to help minimize the discomfort and help them go away much quicker with some simple eye stye home remedies.
