What should I do if I am allergic to Eyelash Glue?

You are absolutely in love with your new lashes but you get home and realise that your eyes are swollen or itchy or just downright uncomfortable and you ask yourself what should you do?! 

Unfortunately this may be the beginning of the end of your eyelash extension addiction. The symptoms you are experiencing are signs of an allergic reaction to eyelash glue and should be taken very seriously.

Sometimes, seasonal allergies do have an impact and could cause you to become more sensitive - especially during the summer months. If you are allergic to lash glue you will experience symptoms as soon as 2 hours after your appointment but sometimes may take 24-72 hours to show up. If you do experience irritation after your appointment, take antihistamines for the next 48 hours and see if this helps. If they do not improve within this time then get in touch with your lash technician immediately and have them removed. It may be that they were applied improperly and the glue was too close to the skin or you have developed an allergy to the glue.

Yes you can become allergic to eyelash glue at any time even if you have been wearing extensions for years. Ensure you have your extensions removed and consult with a doctor or physician if your symptoms persist or worsen. A lash glue allergy can occur at any time but do not fret! You can opt for a beautiful natural lash lift and tint instead. We are experts at lash lift here at Envy Lashes London so you can rest assured you will be in good hands!
