Just because you have a piercing does not mean that you can put anything and everything through that hole. This often results to earlobe tears and stretching that can be unpleasant to look at and can be a source of a fashion faux pas. This does not only affect women as men experience earlobe issues as well. While an earlobe tear can already be repaired through surgery, it is always better to prevent this from happening in the first place.

Avoid heavy earrings.  

Some people think that their ears are strong enough to handle really heavy earrings, so they wear one. This is a common cause of earlobe stretching and can even lead to tearing of the earlobes. You can occasionally wear dangling earrings, but don’t do so all the time. There are stud or small hoop earrings that you can wear during casual days instead. This way, your ears may not experience too much pressure from the accessories that you wear.

Avoid piercing the ears too low.  

When you are planning to get your ears pierced, make sure the hole is not situated too low in the earlobe. The earring can get more support if more of your earlobe is below your piercing. If you have already made this mistake, the only thing you can do is to avoid any pressure on your earlobes by wearing light earrings. Who says dangling ones are the only accessories fashionable enough to show off?

That is to say, avoid dangling earrings.  

Dangling earrings are common culprits for earlobe tears as they are the ones that are prone to getting caught up with clothing and other materials. Moreover, never ever wear hanging ones especially if you are handling babies or young kids as dangling earrings could easily grab their attention, which will get them to literally grab those ear accessories.
