Why am I suddenly allergic to eyelash extensions?

If you have been getting eyelash extensions without any issues and suddenly develop an allergic reaction, you may be wondering what caused it. Allergic reactions to eyelash extensions are not uncommon, and in this blog, we'll explore some possible reasons why you may suddenly be allergic.

  1. Changes in the Adhesive

Eyelash extension adhesives can contain a variety of ingredients, including cyanoacrylate, which is a common irritant. If the adhesive used for your extensions has changed, it may contain a different formulation or a higher concentration of irritants, causing an allergic reaction.

  1. Changes in Your Skin Sensitivity

Sometimes, changes in your skin sensitivity can cause you to suddenly develop an allergy to eyelash extensions. This may be due to changes in your hormones, medication usage, or exposure to other irritants.

  1. Cross-Reacting Allergies

If you have allergies to other products or substances, you may be more likely to develop an allergy to eyelash extensions. For example, if you have a latex allergy, you may be more susceptible to developing an allergy to eyelash extension adhesives.

  1. Contamination or Infection

If your eyelash extensions become contaminated or infected, you may develop an allergic reaction. This can happen if your extensions are not properly sanitized, or if bacteria or other irritants are introduced during the application process.

  1. Improper Application

If your eyelash extensions are not applied correctly, they may irritate your eyes and cause an allergic reaction. This can happen if the extensions are applied too close to your lash line or if they are too heavy or dense.

There are several possible reasons why you may suddenly be allergic to eyelash extensions. These can include changes in the adhesive, changes in your skin sensitivity, cross-reacting allergies, contamination or infection, or improper application. If you experience any symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as redness, swelling, itching, or pain, it's important to have your extensions removed and speak with your doctor. They can help you determine the cause of your allergy and recommend appropriate treatment.
