    I like to sleep in mascara. I feel more put together and I choose mascara because unlike powder and foundation, it isn’t going to clog my pores. I have never seen a broken eyelash? Are they referring to ones that fall out? Wouldn’t mascara appear to seal in the moisture?

    All that being said, I do own the Aveda hand relief…good stuff.

    I am not nor have been much of a makeup person, but one thing I have learnded is use lotions in the winter- both on your hands & feet. The other thing I learned is no matter how good that hot shower/bath feels it will dry you out!
    Prevention is the only mag I subscribe to- I love it- so many good tips and alot are aimed at the 40s + crowd.
