THE EFFECTS OF UV RADIATION ON EYELASHES
I love blue skies, sunshine and warm weather. Who doesn't?
The web offers so many educational resources on how to protect your skin from the harmful effects of uv radiation but what about when it comes to your natural eyelashes?
That topic isn’t covered very often.
Eyelash services and enhancements such as eyelash extensions, lash lifts, and tints are incredibly popular and expensive, with clients paying upwards of $1200.00 a year. So, one would assume that in today's society, having dark, long, thick and healthy lashes is extremely valued and sought after.
What’s interesting is the majority of our clients already have absolutely gorgeous lashes but they want more. It’s the world we live in. We always want more.
Of course, as a Lash Artist, I am all about lash enhancements (mega volume all the way, am I right?) but I also recognize the importance of maintaining the natural health of our lashes.
We use sunscreen to protect our skin, a hat to protect the hair on our head, and sunglasses to keep our eyes safe. Our eyelashes also need some TLC!!!!!!
When we are exposed to UV radiation, our lashes undergo physical and chemical changes that can result in premature breakage, loss of melanin (pigment), reduced flexibility or elasticity, loss of vibrancy or shine, and overall desired appearance.
Whether you’re booking a lash fill every few weeks or have done absolutely nothing to enhance or maintain your natural lashes, now is the time to invest in a product that protects them.
Products containing Aloe Vera Juice + Vitamin C are strongly recommended! <3
