I am having major issues with my eyes at the moment. My eyelash extensions had been on for a month and were looking a bit ragged. As I couldn't get to London to have maintenance or professional removal, I thought I'd try it myself. Big mistake. I used both oil and balm type cleansers on my eyes to dissolve the glue and much blurred vision and redness a few hours later (I looked like I had been crying for a month) there were still some stubborn lashes there. I have given up now and that was a few days ago.
I have been using my regular eye cream, Sarah Chapman Eye Repair but today, my left eye looks horrendous. I should add I have started swimming regularly in the last fortnight which involves putting my head under, as well as copious use of the sauna. When I returned from my swim today though my eyes are really sore and more worrying, the eyelid and under inner eye area looks wrinkled and cracked, a bit like sunburn almost. It feels like sandpaper and I have no idea quite what to do.
I think that with the eye cream I use it should go that close to the eye but it desperately feels like it needs something to replenish it and stop the cracking etc. It is like I have aged 60 years in a couple of hours. Does anyone have any idea what type of product I should be using on it? Would Lucas Papaw ointment or Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream be a dreadful idea? If it were anywhere else that is what I would use but the eyes are so delicate I don't want to make things worse.
Please, please someone come to my rescue with some ideas. I really don't want to end up seeing the doctor next week and having to explain eyelash extensions to him!
