Allergic reactions may result in red puffy eyes, swollen eyes, and/or itchiness. These symptoms may not appear immediately. Sometimes, it can take up to 3 days before you notice any type of reaction. If you start experiencing these symptoms, they may last until the adhesive is off of your eye completely.
Why am I suddenly allergic to eyelash extensions?
It doesn’t matter if you’ve had lash extensions for years and then randomly react once – reacting that one time means that an allergy to the main ingredient in the adhesive (cyanoacrylate) has developed and sadly you will react again.
Apply a small amount of glue to just three eyelashes at the outer corners of each eye and allow 24 hours to see if any reaction was caused. If nothing adverse occurs, you are ready for your lash session.
Eye drops can be used safely with eyelash extensions. It is recommended to avoid eye drops right before your eyelash appointment and at least four hours after. Moreover, eye drops containing saline, oils, glycols, and glycerin should be avoided when wearing lash extensions.
Clean your lashes twice or three times a week if you don’t have such issues. Whenever you engage in physical activities like swimming, or gym sessions, you have to clean your lash extensions afterward. You shouldn’t wet these extensions within 48 hours of their application.
Glued to the skin instead of lashes: When eyelash extensions are glued to the skin, it creates something called a nailhead. This will eventually pull out natural lashes and hurt your eyes within days or weeks after the treatment.
What happens if glue gets in your eyes? During the lash application process your eyes will be closed the entire time. Because of this the likelihood of getting glue into your eyes is slim to none.
