Side Effects Of Using False Eye Lashes

Beautiful eye lashes are the key to striking eyes, and along with everything else that people have withstood for the sake of looking more attractive, using false eye lashes are one of the best ways to enhance your beauty.

Using false eye lashes is by far the easiest and cheapest way to achieve the much-desired ultra-feminine, sexy look, and the fixing of eye lashes have become an increasing popular trend that every fashionista is following, especially one that wants to look perfect, prim and proper.

The elongation of the lashes by fixing false ones adds a dazzling look to the eye and makes it stand out. It’s also an alternative to applying mascara, since not everyone can be careful and meticulous in applying it to get the perfect look.

However, the problem is that there are certain side effects of wearing or using false lashes. You have to be aware and careful about these side effects.

Trapping Dirt
Hygiene-wise, false eyelashes are a risk as they tend to trap dirt and bacteria. Natural eyelashes prevent dirt, foreign material, sweat and bacteria from entering into the eyes, by trapping and keeping out anything that comes near the eyes. But false eyelashes tend to trap and hold anything that comes around them.
These harmful particles that are trapped most times cause irritation to the eyelids and eyes. This is probably the most dangerous side effect because over a period of time this irritation caused by false lashes may result in blindness if proper care is not taken to having it professionally fixed. So it is advisable to use stripe false lashes instead of the individual false eye lashes.

In order to avoid dirt piling up in the eye, avoid wearing false lashes to sleep. Stripe false eye lashes are designed for one day so you could remove after use.

Allergic Reactions
Fixing of false lashes can also cause an allergic reaction to the skin and eyes, which can stem from the adhesive used to attach the fake lashes unto the eyes. The false lashes do not have anything to do with the eyes, but then it is the chemicals in the glue used in fixing the lashes on to the eyes that is harmful because if not properly handled, the glue can get into one’s eyes and since it contains chemicals, it can cause a lot of problems for the eyes like cornea inflation, irritation and alteration to the eyes.

It is  advisable for  ladies not to wear false eyelashes all the time because it thins out the original lashes on the eyelids which is not healthy. False lashes should only be used on special occasions when you need to inspire a totally new look which the lashes will create for you. If eyelashes are not properly fixed, they can also cause redness of the eyes which is the most common among the side effects.

To avert such irritation, it is advised that you go to an experienced professional if it is your first fixing, and a patch test will be carried out to find out if your skin is allergic to any of the materials about to be used. Make sure he/she use the right glue to fix it.

So whatever the case may be, it is best to get a clear picture before you decide to get artificial eyelashes fixed on you. If its a special occasion and there is need to fix false lashes I would advice the use of stripe eyelashes so you could remove after shower and go to bed allowing your natural lashes to relax all through the night. Avoid individual lashes and fake glues.

Stay beautiful and healthy as always.
