Eyelash extensions is a luxury everyone should indulge in but don’t throw away your money by not taking care of them. Here are my top 5 tips on how to make them last longer.
1. Avoid water for the first 48 hours
This is may be the hardest but most beneficial way to extend the life of your lashes. Avoiding water for the first 48 hours after application will give the eyelash extension glue time to bond and strengthen. If you need to have a shower after your appointment make sure you do not face the water directly. Steam from hot water can also disintegrate the glue so lukewarm water is recommended. After the first 48 hours you should use some micellar water to clean your eyelash extensions and face daily.
2. Sleep facing upwards
I love my sleep, so I feel the struggle. If you can manage to sleep facing upwards this can actually prevent accidentally squashing or pulling of your eyelash extensions. Dear Lashes recommends cuddling up inbetween two pillows to prevent any nighttime tossing. If you feel like you are still rolling around during your sleep then there are special pillows on the market that are designed to let you peacefully sleep upwards.
3. Use eyelash extension friendly makeup products
Eyelash extension makeup products come highly recommended for any lash addict. Most makeups contain oil which breaks down eyelash extension glue. Eyelash extension friendly makeup products such as black diamond mascara can enhance your look without affecting the longevity of your prized extensions. Some products such as Poni Cosmetics Lash And Brow Growth Serum can even increase your natural lash growth which means a fuller lash. Ask Dear Lashes at your next appointment for more information.
4. Try not to play with your extensions
I’m guilty of this, playing or pulling on my eyelash extensions without even thinking about it. Your skin also contains natural oils that can loosen your lashes if you rub your eyes. It may be common sense but lots of people including myself play with my extensions. If you notice that your lashes are not as curly or pointing in weird directions please use a clean mascara spoolie wand and roll it carefully over your lashes. Dear Lashes recommends doing this once per day to keep your eyelash extensions looking full and perfect.
5. Get your eyelash extensions done by a proffesional
Cheaper eyelash extensions usually spell trouble. Poor application and inferior products can be why your lashes fall out quicker than the normal 4 week period. Dear Lashess staff are professionally trained and use high quality salon grade glue.
