Eyelash Extension Aftercare is important to maintaining beautiful extensions for as long as possible. With proper care and bi-weekly fills, your lashes can last indefinitely.
Working with Water
After the lash extension session, do not get your lashes wet for the first 6 hours. If you can avoid wetting your lashes for 24 hours, it is even better.
Avoid spas, pools, and saunas for the first 24 hours. Too much water or steam can prevent the lash glue from curing properly.
Being Gentle with Lashes
When you have eyelash extensions, stop using eyelash curlers. You shouldn’t feel the need to anyway, but it must be said. Using lash curlers will damage the extensions and cause them to fall out too soon.
Also, do not pull on or rub your lashes. Although the extensions are securely glued, your natural lashes can still fall out. Try to avoid rubbing your eyes and touching your lashes.
Wearing Makeup with Eyelash Extensions
Use only oil-free makeup remover around your eyes.
Do not use oil-based or waterproof mascara if you want to wear mascara. We do not recommend wearing any mascara at all if you have lash extensions.
Cleaning the Lashes
Do not rub your lashes after taking a shower. Gently blot the moisture away with a towel and let them air dry. You can also use a fan that blows cool air.
You should carefully wash lash extensions daily if possible. This will prevent dirt, moisture, and oil from building up and damaging your lashes.
Avoid oil-based skincare products around the eyes. These can break down the adhesive and cause extensions to fall off.
There are many things to consider in eyelash extension aftercare. Luckily, most of these things are common sense.
If you want to maintain your beautiful lashes, take proper care of them. And also consider touch-up appointments every 2 weeks to keep your lashes looking lovely!
