Some of the most common products that can cause blepharitis are eyelash extensions, mascara, and contact lens solutions. If there are any signs of blepharitis, the eyelash artist will want to remove all remaining extensions and perform a thorough cleaning. I recommend using the We Love Eye eyelid cleansing kit to thoroughly clean the eyelids to physically remove bacteria, demodex residues, allergens and makeup residue from old eyes, anything that could cause inflammation or infection. Common symptoms of blepharitis include itching, crusting, irritation, redness, and dry eyes.
Any eye and eyelid irritation, redness, crusting, or itching sensations are a cause for concern. Blepharitis is common among people who use eyelash extensions and don't clean the eyelid area well every day. Eyelash extensions are popular beauty products used to improve the volume and appearance of natural eyelashes without mascara. Eyelash extensions have been around long enough, so most people know that oil-based products, including propylene glycol (derived from petroleum), break down the adhesive for eyelash extensions.
I understand that you want to protect your investment, but there is a way to use eyelash extensions AND take care of yourself at the same time. Chrissanthie eyelid cleanser contains tea tree and citrus extracts, and its gentle formula ensures that it doesn't break down the adhesives used in eyelash extensions. This occurs when eyelash mites are exposed to light and are buried in hair follicles in search of darkness, causing irritation. I always remind my patients to never wear waterproof eye makeup when they have eyelash extensions installed.
A symptom of eyelash mites is the presence of a transparent or yellowish substance that surrounds the base of the eyelashes. Eyelash extensions stick to the crest of the eyelids, where natural eyelashes grow, and can come in a variety of shapes, styles and qualities. This is an infection of the eyelids and eyelash follicles and is due to bacteria called Staphylococcus, or sometimes to parasitic mites called Demodex. Chrissanthie eyelid cleanser is an all-in-one eyelash cleanser that thoroughly cleans and disinfects eyelids and eyelashes, and removes makeup.
The results of eyelash extension and longevity are a two-way partnership between you and your eyelash extensionist. Blepharitis usually affects the part of the eyelid where the eyelashes grow and affects both eyelids. It usually occurs when the small oil glands located near the base of the eyelashes become clogged (with a buildup of skin cells). Like the swelling and itching that occurs after a mosquito bite, some people are allergic to an eyelash mite bite.
The eyelash extension cleaner is designed to prevent blepharitis and keep eyelash mites at bay, without breaking the adhesive that keeps them on the natural eyelash.
