{DRY EYE CENTER}

Eyelash extensions are not a new trend. However, they are seemingly more popular than ever. Whether you are wearing them regularly or using them as part of a night out, it's important to exercise precaution since they are so close to your eyes. Our eye doctors at EyeSee in Lincolnshire are here to provide some helpful safety tips for eyelash extensions to protect your vision and eye health.

Wash with Eyelash Extension Cleanser

Bacteria can develop around your eyes when you wear lashes and don't clean them properly. Fortunately, you can find eyelash extension cleaners on the market that won't harm your natural lashes and are safe to use around your eyes. Plus, they are effective at bacteria prevention.

Use a Wand to Clean Your Extensions

Use a wand especially designed for extensions to keep your eyelashes separated. You will prevent the lashes from tangling and tugging on your skin.

Let Them Fall Off Naturally

You can easily find a DIY tutorial on how to remove your lashes. However, these methods aren't always safe. Instead, you should let the lashes fall off naturally over time. It will happen as the adhesive breaks down. If you need your lashes off sooner, it's best to consult with the individual who did the lashes. This professional can let you know the safest way to remove the lashes.

Watch Carefully During the Application Process

Make sure the person who applies the eyelashes uses clean tools and washes their hands before applying them.

Avoid Touching the Lashes

While it may seem appealing to stroke or touch the lashes, the key to preventing infection is not to mess with the lashes unless necessary. Additionally, you could pull off the lashes if you pick at them.
