If you’re a fan of eyelash extensions or you wear them often, you may want to think about the last time you cleaned them. Some optometrists say they’re seeing an increase in cases of lash lice, known by its medical term, Demodex. Some people have tried to stay away from cleaning them at all. But that leads to an increase in bacteria, which harbors more bacteria and can lead to infections.
Symptoms include itchiness, redness and inflammation, and what may be even more alarming, lice. The lice are organisms that live on the hair follicle. Gross!!
We recommend cleaning yours lashes a few times a week, at minimum. If you wear makeup on your lashes you must clean them more frequently. Misencil offers the perfect solution – the Lash Shampoo Kit. It comes with a 75ml foaming wash and lash brush for only $35 +tax. Ask us about proper lash care during your next visit!
