Aftercare for Eyelash Extensions: Get the Most Out of Your Lashes
Brow Heaven’s Eyelash Extensions in Long Beach are a lifesaver for people who don’t have naturally long lashes.
You may say goodbye to mascara and hello to your new flawless and lovely eyelashes every morning when you wake up with just two hours at the salon and letting your lash artist work their magic on your lashes. Brow Heaven’s Eyelash Extensions in Long Beach are a perfect approach to bring attention to your lovely eyes, whether you have short eyelashes or want to add some volume.
But here’s the thing: they are considered as an investment. Eyelash extensions take time to apply, and depending on where you get them done, your eye shape, and your lash length, they might cost hundreds of dollars.
So, after all of that, you’ll want to look after them well.
To help you get the most out of your valuable time and money, we’ve compiled 8 eyelash extension aftercare guidelines to help you maintain the beauty and longevity of your lash extensions.
Wash your lashes on a daily basis.
The most critical eyelash extension aftercare guideline is to wash your lashes every day. However, it appears that the step of washing every day is the one that clients overlook the most. You can’t emphasize this enough to your lash lovers: to wash, wash, and wash! When we advise clients to avoid moisture and other substances, they happen to think they can’t touch them at all… which is wrong! Having your clients wash their lashes ensures that they stay clean and free of debris and oil-based cosmetics.
Moisture is definitely not a friend of your new eyelash extensions. It is best to wait 24 hours before introducing any form of moisture to your new extensions. Water molecules could potentially cause your lashes to fall out almost immediately.
Stay away from oil-based cosmetics.
“Oil is the number one reason that eyelashes fall out quickly,” according to a New Lounge expert. In addition to applying oil-free makeup, you should also use oil-free makeup remover and follow an oil-free skincare routine.
Avoid using lash curlers and mascara.
Tempted to cover your new lashes with mascara? It is advisable not to use the product frequently. If you must use mascara, only use it on the tips of your lash extensions and avoid using lash curlers. Then, towards the end of the day, wipe your lashes and eye areas with an oil-free eye makeup remover, avoiding excessive rubbing.
Stay away from activities that involve steam or make you sweat.
Keep your lashes dry for at least four hours after getting them done. Water, steam, high heat, and even spray might weaken the glue’s bond, although showering and washing your face can be done after the first four hours. If your lashes get moist, pat them dry gently with a towel and avoid rubbing your eyes.
Avoid rubbing your eyes
One of the most crucial pieces of eyelash extension aftercare advice given by lash artists is to avoid rubbing your eyes.
You’ll have to break your habit of rubbing your eyes because it damages the lashes and causes them to fall out faster.
To avoid stressing your eyelash extensions, use the tip of your fingertips to gently rub on your lids with your eyes closed if you have itchy eyes.
Sleep on your back
Sleep on your back rather than your stomach, as sleeping on your stomach puts strain on your eyelash extensions, causing them to get distorted or fall out.
If you sleep on your side, make sure your head is resting on the pillow’s edge to keep your lashes from touching the pillow or the bed.
Touch-up every 3 weeks
Regardless of how carefully you treat your lashes, you will lose your extension lashes over time due to the growth cycle of your eyelash.
It is recommended that you have a touch-up treatment every three weeks to ensure that your lashes last longer.
Eyelash extensions can help you achieve longer, fuller lashes. However, you must take care of them in order for them to last.
Even if you use extensions on a regular basis, your lashes will stay healthy and damage-free if you use the right technique and take proper care of them.
We hope that these 8 eyelash extension aftercare guidelines will help you in ensuring that your eyelash extensions lasts as long as possible, saving you time and money.
