Heath risks of wearing fake eyelashes – Standard Digital News By Yvonne Miranda

False eyelashes are popular among women globally as they enhance looks.

Usually, false eyelashes are made from synthetic material while some are made from human hair.

The eyelashes may look good but they are not the best for the health of the eyes.

Here are some health hazzards posed by fake eyelashes:

1. They can cause allergies- If fixed in unhygienic places, bacteria and fungus can be trapped under the glue and cause infection. The infection causes swelling, redness and a lot of pain around the eyes. Sometimes the lashes irritate the cornea and when the glue thickens, it can fall and scratch the cornea.

The eyelash extensions are usually held in place by glue or sewn on which can cause irritation or allergic reactions. Glue contains formaldehyde, which may result in burning, stinging, swelling, and forming a rash upon contact or even up to a week later.



Goddess Knowledge – Pele

Pele is the fiery Hawaiian volcano goddess. The daughter of the earth goddess Haimea, Pele came to Hawaii on a boat. Killed in a fight with her sister, the ocean, sho took refuge in the glowing cauldron of Mount Kilauea (this is the volcano that had the major eruption in July 2018 – a link will be below) where she receives the souls of the dead and regenerates them with fire. In a tempestuous relationship with Kamapua`a the ferocious pig god,  she is portrayed as a jealous goddess, her rages manifesting as volcanic eruptions. Revered by Hawaiians even today, she carries the force of the volcano, with its molten lava flow, which even in destrud=ction creates new land. Pele stands for the molten, fierce aspect of life that is unable to do anything halfway. She reminds us that even in the midst of fiery eruption there s creation and new life.
