How to take care of eyelash extensions

If you've recently gotten eyelash extensions, you may be wondering how to take care of them to ensure they last as long as possible. Here are some tips on how to care for your eyelash extensions:

  1. Keep them dry for the first 24-48 hours: After getting eyelash extensions, it's important to keep them dry for the first day or two. This means avoiding water, steam, and excessive sweating.

  2. Avoid oil-based products: Oil can break down the adhesive used to attach the eyelash extensions, causing them to fall off prematurely. Avoid oil-based products like makeup removers and facial oils, and instead opt for oil-free alternatives.

  3. Be gentle when washing your face: When washing your face, be gentle around the eye area and avoid rubbing or pulling on the lashes. Use a gentle, oil-free cleanser and a soft washcloth to cleanse the area.

  4. Brush them regularly: Use a clean spoolie brush to gently brush through your lashes daily. This will help to keep them looking neat and prevent tangling.

  5. Avoid sleeping on your face: Sleeping on your face can cause your lashes to become tangled or bent out of shape. Try to sleep on your back or side, and use a silk pillowcase to minimize friction.

  6. Avoid using mascara: While it may be tempting to use mascara to enhance your lashes even further, it can be difficult to remove and can cause your extensions to fall out prematurely. Instead, opt for a lash serum or tint to enhance their appearance.

  7. Don't pick or pull at your lashes: It's important not to pick or pull at your eyelash extensions, as this can cause damage to both the extensions and your natural lashes.

By following these tips, you can help to extend the life of your eyelash extensions and keep them looking beautiful for weeks to come. And remember, if you have any concerns or questions about how to care for your lashes, don't hesitate to reach out to your lash technician for guidance.
