Lash retention Issues while wearing masks

It’s been our practice to wear mask even before pandemic, but what will happen if clients are also required to wear masks?

I have been hearing complain from my lash sisters that they are experiencing retention issues nowadays. They haven’t done any thing unusual aside from this time, clients are wearing a mask.

Anyone experienced this? Let us discuss this further, why do we need to wear mask?

The Benefit of Wearing Mask While Lashing

With the recent pandemic that we are all experiencing, taking good care of ourselves is a must. How do we do this? It’s a must to wear our mask to take care of ourselves and also our clients.

Everyone’s safety is our priority now that some of the businesses are now opening.

Why wear a face mask?

Wearing a face mask will help prevent the spread of infection and prevent the individual from contracting any airborne infectious germs. When someone coughs, talks sneezes they could release germs into the air that may infect others nearby.  Face masks are part of an infection control strategy to eliminate cross-contamination.

Wearing a mask during your lash services

Over-exposure to eyelash extension adhesive has been known to result in cold-like symptoms, a stuffy nose, sore throat, wheezing, and headaches. There have been reports of ongoing respiratory issues caused by cyanoacrylate exposure.
