Aftercare - How can I extend the life of my Lashes?
Updated: Aug 10, 2018
Though easy to maintain, proper care and maintenance will ensure the life of your lash extensions.
The first 24-48 hours are crucial for the adhesive to cure and provide a strong, durable bond. Therefore, it's very important to adhere to the following instructions:
📷▪ Keep them dry. Avoid showering, washing your face with hot water or wetting your lashes.
📷▪ Avoid swimming or exposure to steam, heat or saunas.
📷▪ Avoid oil-based creams and lotions on, or around the eyes
📷▪ Do not apply eye or lash makeup.
📷▪ Avoid eyelash tinting, perming or chemical treatments.
📷▪ Avoid chemical peels, waxing or laser treatments around the eyes.
📷▪ Avoid sleeping on side or stomach.
📷▪ Avoid waterproof eye makeup and mascara should be avoided all together.
After the first 12 hours: Although the adhesive has cured, certain activities can weaken the adhesive bond and result in premature loss of your lash extensions. Therefore the following guidelines are recommended:
📷▪ You can swim, shower and exercise as usual but avoid excessive exposure to heat or steam.
📷▪ Be gentle, don't rub your eyes excessively and don't pick or pull on the lashes as it can cause damage to your natural lashes by pulling your own eyelash out along with the extension.
📷▪ Avoid oil-based eye care products or oil-based eye make-up remover. Use of oil-based products can weaken the adhesive bond.
📷▪ Use of mascara may reduce the lifespan of your lash extensions. Although not needed, water-based mascara may be used if desired, but apply sparingly and remove gently.
📷▪ Avoid eyelash curlers as they can damage both natural and synthetic lashes.
📷▪ Daily grooming of your lashes will help keep them in place. At each appointment a disposable mascara wand is given to you & we also carry Lash Styling wands available for purchase.
