Our aim is to educate personnel and technicians in beauty salons on how to prevent Blepharitis.
What is Blepharitis? Who is at risk of developing this condition? Why and how do we prevent and treat it?
Blepharitis is an eye infection of the eyelid, and eyelash follicles and occurs in at least 33-50% of the adult population. Eyelash extensions and mascara Lash Extender have a definite association (cause) with Blepharitis. This condition causes scratchy, red and teary eyes. People with extensions think that If they don't touch the false lashes and eyelids and wet them, or wash them, they will last longer"....Wrong!!!...It’s quite the opposite. Your clients should be washing their eyes with a gentle, hypoallergenic, soapy and water based cleanser containing a natural antiseptic like tea tree oil at least 2-3 times a week.. Blepharitis can be passed on from client to client so the best thing for you as a technician is to , inform your clients of these things and educate them on how to look after their lashes and this includes washing them 3 times weekly.
You don't need to be reminded to adhere to proper hygiene practices in your salon and to always sanitize your tweezers and equipment after each client. It’s a good habit to get into using disposable tools as much as possible to avoid cross contamination, using a new drop of glue for every client and a fresh clean set of tweezers for each client is also a great practice to get into.
Eyelash extensions and mascara Lash Extender have a definite association (cause) with Blepharitis, and if not detected in time can be passed from client to client!! By using Chrissanthie LID CLEANSER and applying the following method, for all your clients before you do the eyelash extensions, and after….. You can prevent Blepharitis!!!!!
