HOW SHOULD A FACE MASK BE WORN

  • Before touching the face mask, wash your hands with soap and water.

  • Remove the masks from the dispenser or package and inspect them for any holes or tears.

  • Make sure you determine which side is the top and which is the front of the mask, so you can properly wear the mask.

  • Face masks with ear loops: hold by the ear loops and put the loops around each ear.

  • Face masks with ties: bring a mask to your nose and place the ties over your head to secure with a tie.

  • Face masks with bands: hold the mask to your nose and pull the top strap over the crown of your head and pull the bottom strap over your head so its at the nape of your neck.

  • Pull the mask over your mouth and chin.

 

Cold-like symptoms, a stuffy nose, sore throat, coughing, and headaches have been reported after excessive contact to eyelash extension adhesive. There have been cases of cyanoacrylate exposure causing chronic respiratory problems.

MOST COMMON MASKS USED IN THE LASH INDUSTRY

  • Disposable Charcoal Mask

These masks are popular due to their cheap price, however, the protection they provide is minimal.  While using this mask is better than no barrier at all, they do not protect against the vapor from eyelash extension adhesive.

 

Lash Stylists love these masks because they come in colorful, patterned or lace finishes, and are more stylish than most other options on the market. Being in the beauty industry, it’s our nature to reach for a mask that’s more aesthetically pleasing,  however, neither the PM 2.5 nor the N99 offer the best protection for lashing.

 

  • N95 with Nuisance Level Organic Vapor Relief 

The ideal mask for Lash Stylists is a disposable N95 mask rated for Nuisance Level Organic Vapor.  These offer the protection required when dealing with VOCs, are light to wear, and won’t break the bank.

  • Work in a well-ventilated area

  • Use source-capture ventilation
