Eyelash Extensions After Care
Everything You Need to Know to Keep Your Lash Extensions
on June 16, 2017
So, you finally booked your appointment with us at Wake Up Beautiful for Eyelash Extensions. You’ve been asked not to wear makeup to your appointment, and have picked out the style you want your expert to give you. But what happens once you have your lashes? How long do Eyelash Extensions last? How do you take care of Eyelash Extensions? We’re here to help give you the full rundown on after-care for your beautiful new lashes.
Still need to book your Eyelash Extension treatment?
The first 24 hours after receiving your new lashes are crucial! The specialized adhesive we use to attach each individual lash will still be setting, so you have to be very careful not to do anything to prevent the adhesive from remaining. How do you do this? Don’t get your lashes wet! During the first day following your treatment, avoid showering, visiting steam rooms or saunas, crying, excessive exercise which could lead to sweating, splashing water on your face, and swimming. If you can keep your eyelashes away from water for the first 24 hour period, the adhesive will properly set on your lashes, and you’ll get to keep your beautiful new look.
Avoid Oil-Based Washes and Products
After the first 24 hours, your Lavish Lashes Eyelash Extensions can stand up to water. However, oils will not work so well with your new look. You’ll want to avoid oil-based cleansers and makeup removers because the oils will interfere with the specialized adhesive, causing it to break down and your lashes to fall off. While some separation of lashes is normal, oil in eye creams, cleansers, and makeup removers can speed up the process, leaving you wanting more lashes quicker than you thought.
Use Makeup That is Removed with Water
Although you won’t need mascara after you get your new Eyelash Extensions, some clients still like adding a little for special events. If you’d like to use mascara, be sure to avoid waterproof mascara as this would require oil-based remover, and lead to damage of the adhesive keeping your new lashes on. You’ll want to follow this rule with other eye makeup like shadows and liner, allowing you to simply splash water on the area to remove your makeup.
Carefully Clean Your Lashes
You’ll want to brush through your lashes at least once per day with a clean, dry mascara wand. By combing through your eyelashes, you’ll keep them straight and help avoid breakage. Be sure you avoid cotton swabs on your new lashes, and only use products made for eyelash extension cleaning, such as Lavish Lashes Gentle Eyelid Cleanser. After cleaning your lashes, or any time you get them wet, but sure to gently pat dry rather than wiping. Too much pressure to your lashes can cause them to fall out, and excessive rubbing is the leading cause of this. Also, avoid touching your new lashes with your fingers; our bodies are covered in natural oils that can also damage the adhesive and ruin your latest look.
Return for a Refill
While our Eyelash Extensions look great and are long lasting, they do still need a little Eyelash Extensions After Care TLC. You’ll want to return for a fill every 2-3 weeks – if you wait longer, you’ll need to get an entirely new set.
