False eyelashes are an ingenious way to accent eyes and glam up your look – quickly. Long, lush lashes are a staple of femininity, and for those who naturally possess them, great. For those who don’t? We need to find a way to fake it. Falsies help, but if you really want to take your lash look to the next level, you may need to add more to your natural lashes than just fake extensions. Those eyelash extension kits you can get at your favorite local pharmacy usually include adhesive glue that can contains any number of toxins, like formaldehyde – a chemical shown in clinical studies to potentially harm healthy eyes.
If you want to avoid the suspicious ingredients in the glue of traditional fake eyelashes, you may decide to pay the high price of lash extensions at a lash salon. The downside of these is that they cost hundreds of dollars and only last a few weeks. Not to mention that many people offer this service but do not have the proper skills to apply the lashes safely and effectively.
But there is a new alternative to both of those options, and they’re called One Two Lash. They’re magnetic false eyelashes that you can apply easily from home, and as long as you take care of them, they’ll last a long time.
Not totally convinced? Here are six dangers of fake eyelashes, and how you can avoid them by using One Two Lash:
- Extra Pulling and Touching. One of the best things about getting fake eyelash extensions is that they add a fuller, thicker look to your regular eyelashes. But the only way to attach false lashes is to glue them to your natural lashes right – where they grow out of your eyelids. This is a sensitive area, and most people tend to fidget with their falsies, so they end up repeatedly tugging on their natural lashes.
Studies have shown that extra eyelash pulling and touching is one of the most common causes of breakage and lash sparsity.
- Eye Damage. If you have ever worn fake eyelashes, you may already know that they are not the most comfortable beauty accessory out there. Just applying the lashes yourself at home can leave you with incredibly messy and even toxic glue on your skin. The application process also often involves putting sharp objects near your eyes. And all of this can cause natural lash loss.
Studies have confirmed that many different eye problems result from applying, wearing, and removing fake eyelashes, including chronic inflammation, redness, allergies, erosion of the cornea, and even hemorrhaging in the eye.
- A Hefty Price Tag. If you crave full lashes every day of the week, you may have considered going to a posh lash salon. There you’ll find a slew of lash specialists who will carefully apply individual sections of extenders to your natural lashes. This service can cost anywhere from $150.00-$200.00 per sitting. However, you’ll have to sit back right back down in that chair up to three times a month to maintain the look of your temporarily lush lashes.
This may not seem too expensive at the start, but over time, some women may end up forking over thousands of dollars – just to keep up this temporarily lavish look.
- The Tools. If you are applying fake eyelashes at home, it can be very difficult to add the adhesive and apply them to your lid without the help of tools. Most people use tweezers, eyelash curlers, and other sharp objects in order to get the job done. And this can be very risky! Just one slip up, and you could cause permanent damage to your eyes, delicate skin, or even your vision.
- Painful Removal. After batting your long, and lovely lashes at you beau (and anyone else you can), you might be ready to go back to a natural look … however, it may not be that easy. Removal of conventional fake eyelashes can be ultra painful – as you tug the lashes away from your delicate lash line, ripping and tearing your sensitive skin, and causing lash fall. If you have ever found yourself in this situation, you may have asked yourself, “Isn’t there a better way?”
- The Time. When you want to get glam lashes, you may need to set aside a good chunk of time. It could cost you up to three hours to purchase, prepare, and apply false lashes at home (and even more time if you opt for the salon extensions route). Who has the time?
You can avoid these dangerous of conventional fake eyelashes. There is another option …
