Read with interest this week about how wearing large, heavy earrings can pose a beauty risk.
The article states that there has been an increase in ‘earlobe repair surgery’ in Australia in recent years.
Statement and chandelier earrings have definitely made a come-back recently. Favoured by celebs and everyday women alike, the trend toward big earring can apparently cause your lobes to stretch. Other risk factors include children tugging on your earrings and the earrings catching on your clothing.
So how do you avoid ruining your lobes?
Try to wear your statements earrings for shorter periods of time, and avoid wearing them if you know that you’ll be around small kids.
Heartening to know though, that if you do have a ‘cheese wire’ accident, it can be repaired…. ouch!
