One of the embellishments that are a part of woman’s beauty kit is false eyelashes. While you may wish to have the most attractive, beautiful eyelashes and may fulfill your wish through using fake eyelashes but what good you can do to your eyes when they need care and love?
Ill effects of using false eyelashes
a) Damage to natural eyelashes
Long-term use of false eyelashes can cause natural eyelashes to fall and over the time you may have sparse eyelashes. The condition is known as traction alopecia when there is a constant pressure on the eyelids that stunt the hair follicle growth. The glue or adhesive used to stick eyelashes to your upper eyelids is not safe and may develop mild or severe allergic reactions.
b) Eye infection and injury
The process of sticking those eyelashes is very dangerous since it comes too close to your eyes. The adhesive used in the eyelash extensions or lashes can cause eye infections and allergies. The eye infections symptoms include eye irritation, redness, sensitivity, inflammation and swelling. Extensions can also cause severe eye infections such as pink eye.
c) Trapped dirt and bacteria
Your natural eyelashes prevent dirt, foreign particles, sweat and bacteria from trapping in. However; fake eyelashes prevent this natural procedure from happening and rather cause dirt and bacteria to trap in or around the eyelids causing eye injuries.
Apart from that you are also exploiting the freedom of natural eyelashes preventing its natural growth and blocking its space from breathing fresh air.
It’s not only about using false eye extensions, but many people often ignore the health of eyes that can cause mild or severe eye complications.
