Do You Take Care Of Your Ears?
You read the title right. Do you take care of your ears? Or do you abuse them with heavy chandelier earrings or heavy hoop earrings? In a society where we pamper almost every part of our body, the ears tend to get forgotten and/or abused.
The trend for the past few years has been dramatic shoulder-sweeping earrings and ridiculously large stud earrings. Basically, anything you can put on your ears to make a statement. Oh, those poor ears!
So take off those statement earrings for a second and check your earring holes. Are they stretched? A little larger than you'd like them to be? If so, take a breather on statement earrings. If your earring holes are not too stretched out, they should get smaller if you stop wearing earrings all together for little while. It's better than having to go through earlobe surgery to stitch back together a torn earlobe (or two).
There are products out there that support your earlobes when wearing dangly earrings (I gather that they're kinda like small band-aid patches). The two that keep popping up are LobeWonder and EarLift. I haven't personally tried them, but they've been getting some good reviews on Amazon.com.
