As a follow up to my previous blog, here is more tips for maintaining beautiful lashes throughout the summer.
Summertime to me, means barbecues and campfires. Awesome juicy steaks, chilled wine or beer then s’mores around the campfire later. Unfortunately Bbq’s and campfires also means singed/melted lashes! Melting your lashes is not hard to do, in fact all it takes is that hot blast of heat when you open your Bbq lid, or sitting to close to the campfire on May long weekend.
Most people don’t know that they can melt their lash extensions or what they look and feel like after you have toasted them. Burnt lashes, at worst melt together at the tips, at best they look like a crochet hooks close up. When you melt your lashes, you generally don’t know you have done it, thankfully they don’t burst into flames( how scary would that be?)
So how do you know if you have melted your lashes? Worst case scenario you can see them all melted together or the more likely scenario is when you go to brush them the next day and you feel a lot of tugging mostly at the tips of your lashes. If you see or feel this contact your Lash Stylist immediately. If you are unable to get a professional to fix them, know that every time you brush out your lashes you are putting a lot of stress on the natural lash by all the tugging and pulling, which in turn will encourage the natural lash to “shed” faster.
So now you want to know how to prevent this lash disaster, sadly there is only a couple of things you can do. You can always wear sunglasses when barbecuing and sitting around the fire, if you do this can you please send me a video with the song by Cory Hart ” Sunglasses at Night” playing in the background…that would be HILARIOUS!!!!! ok, with all seriousness, the only thing to prevent this tragedy is to be aware of the heat, be aware of how close you are and turn your face away when you know you are going to get a blast. Just remember it is not the flames but the heat that will melt those lashes!
And now a tasty salad that is perfect for those hot summer days …no heat required.
1 seedless watermelon (cut into bite-sized pieces or scooped out by a melon baller which is fancy)
½ of a red onion (minced)
Fresh cracked black pepper
½ of a bag of feta cheese
Add all these ingredients together by gently stirring then just before serving add in
Good quality Balsamic Vinegar.
Gently toss again
*this salad does not taste better the next day….I found that out the hard way…YUCK!
