The Scary Way Skipping a Bang Trim Can Hurt You

Over the past couple of years, I've noticed that a strange thing happens if I go a week or two past the due date of my bang trim. For the record, I have thick hair and blunt, full bangs (that's them, above). When they grow a little too long, the skin from my eyelids to my eyebrows starts to freak out. It's angry, red, irritated—and painful. Does this happen to anyone else? I wanted answers, so I asked Joshua Zeichner, the director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, what was going on.

As I suspected, the red, dry, and itchy skin around my eyes was definitely a result of skipping my bang trim. "Depending how thick your bangs are, the blunt ends of your hair rubbing up against sensitive eyelid skin can cause irritation," he says. "A thin layer of bangs likely isn't going to cause a problem, but thick, blunt cut hair could cause a problem." So if you have short, wispy, or side-swept bangs, you're likely fine. If you're like me and have a full-on fringe rubbing all up on your eyelids, you're going to have a problem. So why does that area get all messed up from hair and not, say, my shoulders or neck? "Unlike skin on the back of the neck, eyelid skin is much thinner, more sensitive, and at a high risk for potential irritation," he says.

The obvious solution is to just go get a damn bang trim. I know this. But sometimes I just really don't feel like it. So in the mean time, Zeichner recommends treating the area with a healing cream like Vaseline, Aquaphor, or Aveeno Skin Relief Ointment. You could also brush your bangs to the side, but that's just not my look. So I'll stick with the cream. See more at: Cheap mother of the groom dresses
