It’s a pretty miserable time for hay fever sufferers out there. Many of us are suffering from puffy eyes and endless sneezing with some people claiming the symptoms are the worst they’ve ever experienced. Do we have Super Pollen now? And will this affect our eyelash extensions?
We have been hearing a lot of the so-called "Super Pollen" and "Pollen bombs" being referred to lately and many of us are asking why hay fever is so bad this year? Turns out, the warm spring we had along with above-average rainfall for the UK, is to blame for our relentless hay fever torture. With the Met Office describing the pollen as being "particularly potent" this year, will our lash extensions survive allergy season?
You should already be cleansing your lashes; however, thorough cleansing during allergy season can also help to soothe and alleviate hay fever symptoms -this is true for non-extension wearers too!
I always recommend the Nouveau Lash & Lid Foaming Cleanser for my clients as it contains Biolin; this is a powerful, prebiotic active which helps to prevent itching, redness, and other irritations. This, along with a cleansing brush with multi-length bristles, allows for a deep clean between the lashes.
