Women always prefer to define their beauty as best as they can. For making this possible, they use and apply so much cosmetics to being noticed. But using harmful chemicals for long not only make your skin dull but also harm it badly at times. Eyes are the most sensitive organ of our body and using harsh chemical on them can trigger redness, itching, pain, and swelling. Using eyelash extensions regularly can weaken your lashes.

Are lash extensions and glue safe?

No doubt, the trick of eyelash extensions can save precious time in the morning and give you smudge-free confidence, but it should be applied carefully without affecting your natural lashes.

Eyelash extension should be applied by an expert; the procedure comes with the risks such as infection of the eyelid, trauma to the cornea, allergic reaction due to the glue used in eyelash extensions and eyelash loss which can be temporary or permanent. Infection can develop from inadequate hygiene in the shop or damage to the eye while applying the fake eyelashes. Some glues were known to have formaldehyde that can cause allergic reactions. An allergic reaction can trigger itching, redness, pain, and swelling. It may even affect your eyesight. Rubbing or pulling the fake lashes can weaken your natural eyelashes, and sometimes cause damage to the eyelash follicle.

Ways to avoid eyelash extension complications

The easiest way to avoid complications like eye irritation, or risk of infection is to avoid eyelash extensions simply. If you want to improve the appearance of your lashes, use a high-quality eyelash enhancer serum like Careprost eyelash growth solution. You can buy Careprost online at a very low price. But if you don’t want to invest in an eyelash growth solution, make extensions an occasional beauty treat. Here are a few things that you need to look for and ask about whenever you go for eyelash extensions:

  • Make sure you visit an expert’s place who is well trained in performing the procedure of applying for extensions.
  • See the ingredient’s list on the product which is being used to check whether it contains a harmful chemical like formaldehyde or not.
  • Make sure that your beautician is practicing good hygiene. Check whether he/she has thoroughly washed their hands and wearing gloves.
  • If you apply for an extension at home, be sure to read the instructions given on the product package and follow every step while applying for the extensions. Also, confirm the expiration date has not passed. You can also ask for a spot test before the glue is applied to your lash line.
  • Lastly, if you develop signs of infection, immediately contact an ophthalmologist who is an expert in treating eye conditions.

Doing extensions incorrectly may cause extension associated complications to last long. In that case, seeing an ophthalmologist is the best idea.
