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

Brazilian nurse Valeria Campos, a fan of eyelash extensions for about a year, never imagined she could develop some sort of allergic reaction when having the procedure.

However, after four months of maintaining these false strands—when she went back to the salon to just apply the lashes that had fallen out over time—she noticed something was wrong.

The nurse notes that three hours after the procedure, Your eyelids are starting to become red, swollen, and sore.

“The professional used the same materials that I was already used to. But over time, my eyes swelled up and hurt more and more,” Valeria recalls.
