Have you ever gotten a stye on the eye area? And wonder why?
A stye pops up when the meibomian glands are clogged. They sometimes occur at the most inopportune times.
If you’ve ever wondered why you get them, scroll down to learn some reasons!
1️⃣ Ocular roascea -- ocular rosacea causes inflammation around the eyelid margins. When inflammation occurs in the lash line oil glands, they get clogged and more prone to turning into a stye.
2️⃣ Allergens -- if dust and allergens are getting into your eye they can also clog up the meibomian glands, causing styes.
3️⃣ Makeup -- using makeup that is causing you irritation can also make you more prone to styes.
4️⃣ Hormonal fluctuations: hormones regulate the meibomian glands’ oil production. Fluctuations in them can increase your chances of getting a stye.
5️⃣ Improper cleansing -- not regularly using an eye specific cleanser to remove makeup and keep the meibomian glands healthy can lead to styes.
6️⃣ Eczema -- eczema is a chronic skin condition that causes red, inflamed eye area skin can also make you more likely to get a stye.
