I have been to a doctor and I have swollen lids and an eye infection since getting my extensions done.
The doctor never mentioned removing the extensions. I want the extensions removed however, what is the best way to do this without damaging my lashes.
I had a severe reaction the last time I had my lash extensions done as well! I was given antihistamine eye drops to help with swelling and redness. They then suggested having the lashes removed as it was most likely the glue I was allergic to.
I would definitely recommend going to a lash technician to have them removed properly with an eyelash debonder. It can cost approximately $10-$25 depending on where you go :)
Thanks for your advice. I have had lash extensions once before and this never happened but I went to a different place so perhaps a different glue was used or tools were not sterilised properly :/.
I think I will have to get them removed.
I can sympathise with your eyelash extension situation. My friend has had the same thing happen to her.
Great thing is you don’t need to use any abrasive products, I recommend you to apply olive or coconut oil as this will work well to dissolve the glue moisturising your eye.
You can begin by thoroughly washing your face completely clean, then fill a bowl with hot water and put your face over it, covering your head and the bowl with a towel for around 15 minutes. Get a cotton ball or makeup removal pad in coconut oil or olive oil, and gently swipe across the lash line of your closed eye. I suggest repeated strokes. The oil will dissolve the glue and allow your extensions to fall off. Hope this helps :)
Hope your friend made a fast recovery. I will give this a go as I don't like the idea of going back to an lash extension place for removal in case something goes wrong again.
Have you thought about using lash boost products that naturally length and strengthen your lashes? I've always had such a fear of putting anything on my lashes for that very reason. Are you open to learning about some products that can help?
Do you have any recommendations? :)
The packaging on this is gorgeous! It's pink and comes with a mirror and small brush.
I am already a huge fan of Dermaveen as I suffer from ezcema and sensitive skin. Their hand cream is literally the only one I am able to use that doesn't cause me any irritation or flare up.
I got this as part of a bella box a while back and it sat tucked in a draw for ages before I finally got around to using it. And boy did I love it!
