The eyelash extension craze has been in for many years throughout the world. Women desire to have the instant gratification of beautiful lashes, which is offered by so many aesthesticians as it is the number one requested service in beauty salons and make up studios. More important than the beauty of your lashes is a topic that not many people think about and that is the health of your lashes and, in turn, the health of your eyes.
The reason why we have eyelashes is to catch airborne dirt and debris, which prevents foreign objects from coming in contact with your gorgeous eyes. The lash line is nature’s “collector” and, therefore, MUST be cleaned daily as debris is more prone to being collected when wearing eyelash extensions. Washing and cleaning the extensions daily is a must for eyelash and eye health.
When proper lash cleaning isn’t done daily the chances of allergies are increased and dead skin begins to build in the lash line. Dead skin increases the chances of mites on the eyelash extensions. Don’t be shocked, everyone has small amounts of these mites, but they would be problematic in large quantities. Mites in large quantities can cause skin issues and/or aggravate preexisting skin diseases.
Advanced symptoms/infections can cause eye inflammation (blepharitis). Eye inflammation can cause other symptoms such as crusty eyelashes, sticky eyes and frequent blinking. Over time, blepharitis can also lead to eyelash growth abnormalities.
Symptoms of eyelash mites only tend to occur if there is an underlying skin condition, if you have a large infestation or poor lash hygiene!!!
