How to use skin lightening creams correctly

As evident in the card shown above, it is very important that you use your skin lightening creams correctly  The directions here are for any skin lightening cream or product, but obviously we like our best!  I have used many lightening products over the years and none of them did what I wanted them to do, which is what lead to the development of an all natural yet VERY effective product by Beautiful Radiant Skin.  Luminous White works!  For more information on this products or to read about ingredients etc. please visit our website at BRSfacialspa.com or BeautifulRadiantSkinProducts.com You can also find us on Facebook.

Do eyelash extensions make your lashes fall out?

Eye lash extensions:  Fad Gone Bad

First to know is that there are three types of false lashes, or extensions; synthetic, silk and mink.  In my opinion they are equally BAD for your own eyelashes!!  They are set in place using semi-permanent glue.  Off on a side note for second......what the heck does 'semi' permanent even mean?  Something is either permanent or it is not.  That term has always bugged me.  Okay, back to the topic at hand.  There are also different types of glue based on the sensitivity of the eyes.  The fact that there are different types of glue based on eye sensitivity is your first red flag that something has gone wrong along the way.  Right?  At some point someone had a bad reaction to the glue which lead to the different types that now exist.  This didn't happen just once, if it did there would only be 2 types of glue, but there are many types of glue.  What does this tell you and how sure are you the person applying your falsies will know which to use? 

The following information is not just my opinions, they are facts gathered from both medical journals and from my personal exposure to countless clients who have had falsies applied (not at our treatment center, we don't offer this service!!!) and have had some awful reactions to the glue and or lost their lashes, in some cases almost completely!

In 2014 the AAO (American Academy of Ophthalmology) found and officially warned the dangers of lash extensions and their glue.  Countless infections and swelling of the cornea and eye have been recorded.  In many cases medical intervention was necessary.   The Consumer Report in 2014 also reports countless cases of bacterial and fungal infections have occurred.  In addition, as though that is not enough, they will cause your natural lashes to thin and fall out.  There is no way around the last statement, this WILL happen.  You cannot have eyelash glue on your lashes without this happening.  Your own lashes can not breathe, they cannot get the oxygen necessary for growth, in essence it clogs the root making them sparse over time.  This is what keeps people going back for more lashes.  Are you willing to commit to falsies FOREVER?

In addition to the risks of the above situations happening to you also consider the ridiculous care they take once applied.  You cannot expose them to heat, steam, emollient products (like eye creams, eye pads, and make-up remover) swimming is discouraged, Jacuzzis, steam rooms too, they shouldn't be rubbed......I don't know about you but I rub my eyes when tired.  Mascara is discouraged, waterproof is out of the question etc. 

In addition to all of this they are expensive and need to be reapplied often because they fall out.  The most disturbing bit of information I have read during my research is that the allergies to the glue are not  usually discovered the first or second time lashes are applied, rather the allergic reaction happens over time due to continuous use.  So when will it happen to you?  Or will it happen to you?  Are you willing to find out?  I'm sure not.  It's a gimmick that is already dying out due to the immense problems these lashes cause.  Knowledge is power, be smart.
