Although it may seem harmless, continuous use of false eyelashes and lack of care can cause various problems.

A fan of eyelash extensions for almost a year, Brazilian nurse Valeria Campos never imagined that she might develop some kind of allergy while performing the procedure.

But after four months of maintaining these falsies — and returning to the salon wearing only lashes that had fallen out over time — she noticed something was wrong.

Three hours after the procedure, the nurse says. Your eyelids are red, swollen and painful.

“The professional used the same products I had already used. But as the hours went by, my eye swelled up and hurt more and more,” recalls Valeria.
