With an increasing number of DIY beauty treatment options on the market these days, it is more common than ever for people to try these procedures at home. Although there are treatments that are completely safe as a DIY option, there are also treatments that should be left to the trained professionals. Here are three beauty trends that you should not attempt yourself:
Eyelash extensions should not be confused with temporary false lashes. These extensions are applied using a semi-permanent glue onto each existing lash. This procedure should not be performed at home. Attempting this yourself could be harmful to your eye, potentially affecting your vision or skin. The glue contains a myriad of chemicals that can cause inflammation or irritation if it gets in or around your eye. A trained professional knows how to mitigate the risks and ensure that your lashes come out looking fuller yet also still natural.
With so many DIY teeth whitening products on the market, it can be tempting to try to save some money and try your hand at this yourself. However, teeth whitening is a beauty regimen that should only be undertaken with the help of a professional. There are different methods you can use to brighten your smile and each one has varying results and effects. A professional can help you to wade through the claims and recommended a treatment that will be most effective for your specific whitening needs. Using a trained professional will also ensure that do not inadvertently damage your teeth while trying to whiten your smile at home.
Major Hair Color Changes
Achieving the perfect hair color is a tricky venture. Especially if you are looking for a more complicated dye job such as balayage or ombré, you will be best served by consulting a professional. Trying a drastic color change at home can lead to hair breakage and uneven color distribution. Although it may be possible to do root touch-up jobs at home, attempting any drastic color changes on your own could leave you with poor results.
By carefully choosing which beauty treatments to try at home and which ones to leave to the professionals, you can ensure that you will not make any costly mistakes. If you are ever in doubt, it is always a good idea to consult with someone who is trained in the procedure for guidance.
