As a beauty professional, you spend countless hours taking care of your clients. But because the work of a lash and brow technician can place stress on both body and mind, it’s equally important to take care of yourself. “When you put your own health on the back burner, it won’t be long before your artistry and business are affected,” says Sarah Elaine Moore, a Los Angeles-based beauty and wellness consultant and trainer for Glad Lash, Inc. “After a decade of providing eyelash extensions, not a day goes by when I’m not reminded of the importance of taking care of my mind and body.” From eye strain to wrist pain, backaches to emotional angst, the list of potential health concerns can be extensive. But with the self-care tips and tools that follow, keeping yourself healthy won’t be nearly as hard.

Being able to see clearly is crucial when you work around a client’s eyes, and yet the job can compromise your vision in a variety of ways. That’s why you should be sure to see your eye doctor annually to keep tabs on how much eye strain may be affecting your sight, says Leah Lynch, owner of Beautique Salon & Spa in Newburyport, Massachusetts, and master trainer for Lash Affair Academy. From there, create a vision-friendly work environment, which includes lighting that makes lash application easier. “An esthetic loupe or professional makeup lighting with full-spectrum bulbs are the best choices and should be used directly over the client in addition to adequate overhead lighting,” says Lynch. “Avoid flourescent bulbs as they have a flicker that is not necessarily perceived by the naked eye, and they can fatigue the eye over time or cause vertigo.”ilash eyelash Extensions specializes in the art of eyelash extensions to transform your eyes.We use only?premium quality faux mink and synthetic silk lashes?to create longer, thicker and more beautiful lashes.Eyelash extensions are tailored to your lifestyle and suited to your eye shape.and want to thick and strong eyebrow, you can search librow nz .

To further enhance vision, many techs wear glasses with 1x to 3.5x magnification or loupes. Check out or for loupes at different price-points, suggests Ria Hountas-Hart, BSN, RN, certified lash artist and owner of Lashtique in New York City and Long Island, New York. If you’re unsure of which eye products will best suit your needs, again, head to the optometrist or ophthalmologist. “Your doctor will know if it’s preferable for you to buy the magnifying products on the market, or opt for a prescription,” says Moore. Finally, take plenty of eye breaks during and between services. “When you do, focus on something at a long distance, and blink often to refresh the eyes,” suggests Lynch. “Also, massage the eyelids and areas over the brow, temples and upper cheeks one or two times a day.”
