Unfortunately, there are some negative connotations surrounding eyelash extensions. Some people believe that getting eyelash extensions can damage natural eyelashes and the actual eye. It is critical to only visit a professional eyelash extension artist who is educated and trained in correct application.
Read on to find out how you can prevent negative side effects from eyelash extensions and how to keep your lashes healthy and full.
Natural Eyelash Loss
Due to genetics and auto-immune diseases, some people can loose eyelash extensions faster than others. If you have naturally healthy lashes and loose your lashes at an appropriate rate, eyelash extensions are totally safe.
If too much tension is caused by gluing two or more lashes together, eyelashes can fall out at a more rapid rate. This is why you need to visit a trained professional. Other things that can slow or stop the growth of natural lashes are:
- Repeatedly pulling off eyelashes and extensions
- Extra weight and torsion added to the follicle by using too long or thick of an extension
- Unsafe solvents used in un-approved lash removers
- Oils in un-approved make-up removers and mascaras
Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelid. It commonly occurs when the tiny oil glands of the inner eyelid become inflamed. Symptoms include red, itchy eyelids that may look greasy and crusted.
To prevent blepharitis, make sure you are cleaning your eyelash extensions. Build up of makeup, dry skin and sweat can cause blepharitis. We suggest you use our Deep Cleanser to prevent blepharitis.
