Curious About That Lid Scrub You've Seen All Over Amazon? A Pro Weighs In
I first encountered lid scrub years ago in a friend's bathroom. She claimed the little pads helped cleanse her long eyelashes and prevented debris and pollen that got caught in them from inhibiting her sight or irritating her eyes. Then, I recently noticed that The Original OcuSoft Lid Scrub ($10 for a pack of 30) was one of Amazon's bestselling personal care products and wondered if I should have been exfoliating my eyelids this whole time. Was ignoring this step like not brushing my teeth?
Considering the product has 4.5 stars on Amazon and more than 1,000 reviews, I decided I needed to investigate it further. I reached out to board-certified dermatologist Dhaval Bhanusali, MD, to find out if I should start incorporating this step into my daily routine. Read more about lid scrub ahead.
