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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The number one precautionary measure is to prevent any spread of the virus is to wear your mask. You don’t know if your client is currently having a cough or any communicable disease. We also don’t want to get expose from the fume of our lash adhesive. Safety first!
This is part of our lash essentials is to wear a mask, we don’t want our client to smell our breath or the lunch that we just ate, even if we brush our teeth after a meal.
We wanted to stay stylish no matter what happens. There’s a lot of stylish designs to choose from and still stay protected and safe while we are performing our most love job – lashing.
To those who are back to work, let us learn the ‘new normal’ that we have to follow. I have made an infographic for everyone that’s really really easy to understand.
It’ll be challenging this kind of set up but we have to help each other to go through this ‘new normal’ routine. Please continue to practice social distancing, sanitation, and stay healthy!
