When asked what cosmetic product they would choose if they had to pick just one, many people reply with ‘mascara.’ Eyelashes, despite just being tiny hair for the protection of your eyes, play a very important role in aesthetics. Whether you are going for a smoky eye or a colorful, wild look, some false eyelashes really bring out the artistry- they give your eyes the POP they need.
Most makeup users apply false eyelashes with the help of eyelash glue several times a week. It used to be worn on special events, but now it has become a staple to every makeup style. Knowing all this, it is not difficult to reach the obvious conclusion: using the chemicals false eyelash glue contains directly on the most sensitive part of your face is bound to bring about some lasting damage.
So what exactly can you do to take care of your lashes while enjoying the volume you have come to love? We can tell you.
Caring for Your Lashes
All you truly need in order to take appropriate care of your lashes is to clean them properly, keep them moist with a naturally hydrating substance, eat lot of healthy foods, and get plenty of sleep! Sounds easy enough, right? Despite knowing this, we often go to bed without making sure the product is entirely off, or rub our eyes a little more aggressively than required; all of this can lead to loosening of the lashes and hindering of their growth amongst other serious problems like styes and infections.
Moreover, cheap mascaras and adhesives that leave a residue are not only a hazard for your lashes but also for your sense of vision. That is a risk no one should be taking. Make sure your mascara contains safe ingredients that have been certified.
It is common knowledge that you have to cleanse your face and remove make-up completely every night. For that, it is best to use natural substances that are mild and gentle with your eyes, such as DIY formulas using vitamin E, witch hazel, olive oil, and other organic components.
The Food You Eat
It goes without saying, and is oftentimes ignored, that the food you eat seriously affects every aspect of your health. This includes the health of your eyes and eyelashes. Omega-rich foods such as salmon and spinach can help in hair growth while biotin and other vitamin supplements are more of a directed approach towards healthy eyelash growth.
For your general wellbeing, consider a diet that has as few processed items as possible and more natural foods and fruits. The value of a balanced food intake cannot be ignored.
The Bane of Eyelash Glue
Even though false eyelashes look great and now come in cruelty-free, natural forms, eyelash glue is not the best substance to use this close to your eyes. Not to mention that while ripping off your false lashes at the end of the day, there is a high chance that a couple of real lash hairs get plucked off too. Over time, this could lead to bald-looking eyes and a thinning of your natural lashes.
While it is okay to rely on synthetic lashes once in a while, it may not be the ideal route to take on a daily basis. Frequent use can also lead to irritation and contamination. Some chemicals, such as sodium dodecyl benzenesulfanate, are proven to be harmful towards skin and eyes yet are still used in some beauty products, and particularly in some eyelash adhesives. Being in the know equips us better to keep away from such ghastly chemicals.
Eyelash Extensions Are No Better
Some people, to escape the hassle of gluing on false lashes every day, turn towards eyelash extensions or other similar salon treatments. While they can seem like the best of both worlds initially, there are many hidden dangers that you are not made aware of.
Since the process involves attaching synthetic extensions to your natural lash hairs, it is extremely delicate and hence, easy to mess up. There are several videos on the web detailing people’s bad experiences. The procedure can lead to side-effects ranging from irritation and redness to infection and complete loss of the eyelashes!
If It Gets Out of Hand
The extended use of toxic products may end up seriously damaging your lashes–or worse–your eyes! If you feel extreme irritation in your eye that isn’t going away, sustained redness, or pain and swelling, it is best to reach out to your dermatologist and take their expert advice. Keep in mind that eye injuries should never be taken lightly.
