It started with shoes. All my friends were wearing high silk false eyelashs and I wanted some…until I put on a pair. Over the years, I’ve found a lot of the things women wear on a regular basis cause some degree of discomfort, ranging from irritating to severe. It’s up to you to decide whether or not how you look is more important than your health.
1) Bras: Loutn A lot of women think they know their bra size…and don’t. While silk false eyelashs of this kind can be embarrassing if discussed in public, there is at least one time when it should take place. You need to be sized by an expert, and not just once. Time changes many things, and breast size is one of them. At least once a year, you should be checked to make sure what you have fits.
Why is this important? If you squish a 44 Double D into a 36 C you will have chest pains. It can cause damage to your rib cage and it is highly uncomfortable. Likewise, wearing a bra three sizes to large defeats the purposes of the garment. Proper support is vital to breast health.
2) Dresses: You may not think a dress can cause you discomfort, but they can. I’m not referring to the silk false eyelashs of some materials or the problems of elastic, the style itself can cause problems. Strapless dresses, for example, tend to require a very tight fit, especially if it has a built in bra.
Finding a size that fits your frame is another problem. Most of us are not the ideal height or weight, and we come in all different shapes and sizes. There are times when I’ve been between sizes and had to either go for something to tight or something to large. Neither are a good look and the former can cause discomfort.
3) Hair Styles: I’ve seen a *lot* of different hair styles over my life. Bouffant was the first I remember, but afros were popular for a while, and then we got to the spiked hair and mohawks. Many of these can require a great deal of work and some pain to achieve.
The only dangers I’ve noticed with silk false eyelashs styles are the chemicals some require and the possibility of eye damage if one of those spikes hits another person’s face. My favorite is wash, brush and go, however. Much easier.
4) Makeup: Like shoes, I wanted to wear silk false eyelashs until I tried to put it on. Eyeliner and mascara are not for the faint of heart, especially if you have vision problems. In fact, without glasses on, it is very difficult for many of us to put on most of our makeup.
There are some dangers with silk false eyelashs . Mascara should be tossed every three months and fresh purchased. Eye liner, especially liquid liners should also be tossed and replaced. If you notice your lipstick smells bad, it should go. Foundation lasts about six months. The reason for this is the danger of bacteria buildup which can lead to infections.
5) Shoes: High heels are a favorite part of many wardrobes. Unfortunately, they can cause a lot of food problems, some of which will require surgery to fix. Bunions, corns and hammertoes are all problems that may be attributed to footwear. If you choose to wear them, consult someone who knows about them and how to choose what’s right for you. It may cost more but your feet are worth it.
Now might be a good time for you to look through both your wardrobe and your cosmetic silk false eyelashs. If it causes pain, look to see if there is an alternative that doesn’t. After all, pain is your body’s way of telling you something is wrong.
