Eyelash extensions - pros and cons
Unfortunately, not all of us are happy owners of long fluffy eyelashes, and sometimes there is not enough time for daily makeup. Agree, it is much more pleasant to spend an extra hour under the covers in the morning than to sit in front of the mirror, curling and dyeing your eyelashes. Today, there is a seemingly great alternative: eyelash extensions. In fact, they are no different from the good old invoices, however, they last longer. But they also cause harm more than we would like.
The main disadvantage of eyelash extensions is their fragility. Despite the fact that, unlike invoices, they last much longer - from two to four weeks - their "life" period is still very limited. The reason lies in your own lashes, which are renewed about once a month. So, along with the real ones, artificial ones will fall out. In addition, the quality of real eyelashes decreases under the weight of artificial material, so after removing the extended eyelashes, you risk being left with “bald spots” on your eyes.
Among other things, many in the pursuit of glossy beauty forget that any artificial body in your body requires significant restrictions in your daily routine. So, for example, false eyelashes cannot be dyed, or moistened with salt or chlorinated water, so if you dreamed of the sea or a swimming pool, forget it, but you have to remember this: you can sleep with extended eyelashes only on your back or on your side, but never not face down, otherwise there is a risk of waking up with heavily spoiled makeup. If we talk about the advantages, then they also could not do without them: firstly, you have an almost unique opportunity to change the natural shape of the eye, since there are a lot of ways to build up. In addition, the look becomes deeper and more expressive, however, the same effect can be achieved using ordinary mascara.
Mascara - pros and cons
Mascara has no less flaws than extended eyelashes, though everything here depends only on you. Cosmetologists, first of all, insist on the correct rinsing of mascara - using a makeup remover or cosmetic milk.
To avoid damaging your health, we recommend replacing the mascara every three months after you start using it. This advice is explained by the fact that the microbes on the brush multiply at a tremendous rate.
If we talk about waterproof mascara, which we love to use in rain or snow, then there are even more complaints about it. The worst thing about waterproof cosmetics, paradoxically, is its durability. Eyelashes are simply deprived of the ability to breathe, so waterproof mascara akin to extended eyelashes risks leaving you without natural ones.
In addition, experts argue that colored mascaras can cause much greater harm to health, because black, as a rule, contains only natural ingredients, such as natural oils and soot, while colored, as you might guess, contains various chemical dyes., which in itself can not bring any benefit.
But the advantages of mascara, if not more than extension, then at least they are much more significant than the notorious mystery of the look. High-quality black mascara not only gives volume and lengthens to eyelashes, but also protects them well from wind, sun, dust. So do not believe that mascara discolors and weakens eyelashes. Only a poor-quality or expired product can cause harm.
