The Dos and Donts of caring for your eyelash extensions

Hi friends! As you might have noticed, the weather is getting colder, the days are getting shorter and the holidays are just around the corner, so I thought I share the do’s and don’ts of caring for you eyelash extensions.

Follow these simple rules and you should achieve the maximum lasts out of your eyelash extensions.

Don’t rub your eyes.  Don’t is right, rubbing your eyes for any reasons can cause damage to them from foreign objects in your eye or cause diseases.  By rubbing your eyes you can also detached your eyelash extensions or cause the removal of your natural lashes.  Even when you’re tired, don’t rub your eyes because you will stretch the skin around your eye area and this leads to wrinkles.

Do rinse. Rinse your eyes when there are foreign objects in them.  It’s best to refresh your tired eyes by splashing some cool water on your face and then gently pat dry with a towel. You can also use eye drops.

Do use an eyelash brush.  Gently using an eyelash brush can keep them inline and looking natural

Do be careful with other beauty products. It’s ok to use mascara on your eyelash extensions but the mascara should be water based and not anything proof i.e. waterproof, weatherproof.

Do avoid Oil based beauty products.  These products include makeup, makeup remover, or cleansers.  Oil from these products affects the bond between your natural eyelash and eyelash extensions.

Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash Extensions

Similar to hair extensions, eyelash extensions add length and volume to your natural eyelashes eyelash which enhances the appeal of your eyes.  Eyelash extensions come in a variety of lengths, colors and thicknesses, which can be worn during sleep, exercise, showering and swimming.  However, exposure to oil base products can weaken the bond with your natural eyelash.   Eyelash extensions are applied one extension per one lash.    That’s what gives eyelashes the natural look. 

The eyelash extensions from last from three weeks to eight weeks, depending on conditions and hair growth.  Eyelash extensions never touch your skin or impede the growth of the natural lashes.  They are safe to use. 

For a natural and beautiful eyelash looks have it done right by an experience eyelash technician.
