It can be scary waking up one day and seeing something strange around your eye area. Before you dial 911, read up on some very common eye irritants and remedies.
BLEPHARITIS AND EYELASH EXTENSION
- What is Blepharitis?
- What cause Blepharitis?
Many have thought that this is a GLUE or allergy issue, but it is NOT. The symptoms for allergy is different and is usually noticeable within 24-48 hours after lash application. Blepharitis is a result of many months of poor lash hygiene.
It seems like common sense to think that the dryer we keep the extensions, the longer they last; however, we cannot sacrifice hygiene for the sake of long-lasting lashes. Lashes shed naturally as nature’s way of preventing bacteria and dirt buildup around the eyes. Good lash hygiene promotes healthy lashes which will allow lash users to enjoy extensions indefinitely.
Sty on the eye
According to the Mayo Clinic's website, a sty is a red, painful lump near the edge of your eyelid that may look like a boil or a pimple. Sties are often filled with pus. A sty usually forms on the outside of your eyelid. But sometimes it can form on the inner part of your eyelid. A sty is caused by an infection of oil glands in the eyelid.
In most cases, a sty will begin to disappear on its own in a couple days. In the meantime, you may be able to relieve the pain or discomfort of a sty by applying a warm washcloth to your eyelid.
