Eyelash extensions can give you a stunning, wide-eyed look without the need for mascara or falsies. However, to keep those lashes looking their best, proper care is essential. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the dos and don’ts of eyelash extension care to ensure they stay gorgeous for weeks to come.
1. Gentle Cleansing
Clean your lashes regularly with a lash extension-friendly cleanser. Use a clean mascara wand or a soft brush to gently remove any dirt, oil, or makeup residue. Avoid Oil-Based Products.
2. Oil is the enemy of eyelash extensions
Avoid oil-based makeup removers, cleansers, and eye creams, as they can weaken the adhesive bond and cause extensions to fall out prematurely.
3. Be Mindful of Water
Excessive exposure to water can weaken the adhesive, so it’s best to avoid activities like swimming, saunas, and hot tubs. If you do get your lashes wet, gently pat them dry with a lint-free cloth.
4. Sleep on Your Back
Sleeping on your back can help prevent your lashes from rubbing against the pillow and getting tangled or damaged.
5. Don’t Pick or Pull
Resist the urge to pick, pull, or twist your lash extensions. Doing so can damage your natural lashes and cause discomfort.
6. Avoid Mascara
The great thing about lash extensions is that you don’t need mascara. Using mascara can be too harsh on the extensions and is generally unnecessary.
