A condition where oil glands near the eyelashes become clogged causing inflammation of the eyelids. There are several reasons a person can have blepharitis such as an infection or rosacea. It is often a chronic condition that is hard to treat. Common symptoms of blepharitis typically experienced include watery eyes, redness, itchiness, light sensitivity, and frequent blinking. Performing a lash lift and/or tint on this type of client would be extremely difficult and unsafe for the client. The products used in the service could cause the client further irritation and discomfort making their condition worse. Also, due to the clients frequent blinking, it could be possible to get lash products into the client’s eyes.
A common condition where oil glands in the eyelid become infected. A red bump forms on the outside or inside of the eyelid, looking similar to a pimple. They are painful and often filled with pus. There are several ways a person can have a sty form such as using old cosmetics or dirty hands coming into contact with the eyes. Common symptoms of a sty typically experienced include swelling, pain, and a red lump formation on the eyelid. They generally heal on their own after a few days. Performing a lash lift and/or tint on this client would be unsanitary and infection could get worse for the client or spread to other clients.
Contact lenses create a lack of hydration and oxygen for the eye. It is important client’s take out their contact lenses as some solution may get into the eye and get trapped under the lens causing a reaction, there may be a chemical reaction with the lens and the solution causing the lens to deteriorate. The solution fumes can get trapped under the lens causing the client a lot of discomfort.
Also known as conjunctivitis, is an infection of the conjunctiva membrane lining the eyelid. The blood vessels in the conjunctiva become inflamed causing the whites of the eye to turn pink. Performing a lash lift would be highly unsanitary and unsafe as it is often contagious. Someone with pink eye should avoid touching their eye and as a lash professional touching their eye could cause them a worse infection or they themselves could get the infection and pass it onto other clients.
