The Danger of Eyelash Extensions

Danger of eyelash extensionsEyelash extensions sound great: no mascara melting in the heat and an easy minimal makeup routine on vacation are two reasons you might be considering them. But you might also want to consider that eyelash extensions can cause allergic reactions, infections and other awfulness that is anything but pretty.

Most lash salons use a formaldehyde-based glue to hold the synthetic extensions in place, which can cause hypersensitivity at best and an infection at worst.

So, as this Consumer Reports article suggests, if you don’t want to spend summer stuck inside with your eyes swollen shut or your vacation with a nasty infection that you definitely won’t be writing home about, stick to simple mascara.
