Keeping your eyelash extensions in good shape can be challenging, especially if you are busy. But once you master the tricks, you can always keep your lashes looking good. Take a look!
Keep Off Heat and Steam
Newly installed lashes require time for the adhesive bond to be strong. Exposing them to water for the first 24 hours can weaken the bond, causing fall out.
Also, avoid saunas, steam rooms, grills, ovens, hair dryers, and hot showers.
Be Gentle to Your Lashes
It is normal to want to always stay in front of the mirror admiring your new lashes or resisting the temptation of pulling them to check if they are strong. But this will cause your lashes to fall out prematurely. Always avoid tugging, rubbing or pulling your lashes even when you need to.
Use mascara or eyelash brush to keep them neat. When sleeping, avoid sleeping on your face, as this weakens your lashes.
Protect Your Lashes When Asleep
It is advisable to use silk or satin pillowcases when sleeping to help prevent friction. This helps keep your natural lashes and lash extensions protected.
Drinking enough water is good for your health as well as your lashes. Staying hydrated keeps the lashes flexible and easy to style giving them a natural-like appearance.
Make Use of Lash Wipes
Sometimes when you sweat, you may be forced to wipe off your face. And this is where lash wipes come in.
Avoid Using Oil-Based Products
Using Oil based products like cleansers, moisturizers, and makeup remover near your lashes do not do justice to you. The Oil weakens the adhesive bond, causing them to fall out.
Get Regular Refills
With time, your lashes will fall out and will require refilling to keep them in good shape. Consider scheduling regular lash refills with your lash artist. At Contour Day Spa, we have professional lash artists who can help you choose the right lashes for you and help do regular refills when needed.
