Potential Health Hazards of Eyelash Extensions

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Eyelash extensions, individually bonded with glue to existing eyelashes, can invite mites called Demodex to set up residence in your eyelashes
  • Demodex, aka eyelash lice, can cause redness, inflammation, blood shot eyes and blocked oil glands, and can contribute to conditions like blepharitis, blepharoconjunctivitis and blepharokeratitis
  • Demodex can be confused with blepharitis, but the treatments are completely different and, unlike blepharitis, Demodex can spread to others
  • Demodex is often explained by lack of hygiene since eyelash extension wearers sometimes keep them on for weeks, fearing that washing will cause the lashes to fall out

How to Prevent and Treat Seasonal Affective Disorder

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a form of depression that occurs seasonally, typically ramping up in the fall and winter months and disappearing come spring
  • Helpful treatments include optimizing your vitamin D and omega-3 levels, light therapy (including blue light exposure in the morning, but not later in the day), optimizing your sleep, the Emotional Freedom Techniques and exercise
  • Your health and mood are intricately tied to exposure to sunlight. For example, your serotonin levels (the hormone typically associated with elevating your mood) rise when you’re exposed to bright light. Your melatonin level also rises and falls (inversely) with light and darkness
  • Vitamin D deficiency is very common, and should be a top consideration when you’re looking for a solution to flagging mood and energy — especially if it occurs during fall and winter months
  • While light therapy can take up to four weeks before you notice improvement, it was shown to be more effective than antidepressants for moderate to severe depression in a 2015 study
