So, you’ve always dreamed of having long, lush eyelashes and you finally found it in your budget to actually go and get them. Now that you have your long-awaited beautiful lashes, won’t the fun and happiness last longer if they stay for more than a week? After all, if it is drilling a hole in your pocket, making it last longer and enjoying a few more days of those perfect eyelashes seems like the right thing to do.
However, caring for eyelash extensions is not as easy as it sounds. It requires constant care and you have to be careful while dealing with them. A lot of things that you do habitually should be avoided when you have your eyelash extensions and this can be difficult to achieve.
The things that you are not allowed to do are simple and easy to follow when considering all the fun and attention you get when flaunting them. It will be worth every penny and minute if you just decide to do everything that it takes to make them last.
These tips are given by award-winning academy Sugarlash and hence, all the tips are tried out by the professionals themeselves.
One of the first things you should remember immediately after you come out of the salon is that, no more wetting your eyes and eyelashes for the next 24 hours. The adhesive needs to really get hold of the skin to make it stick and wetting your eyelashes can cause it to become weak and come out sooner. Since water is prohibited, swimming, long baths and showers are strictly a no-no. Sauna, sun-beds and other heat treatments are off-limits too. Steam can be used, but it is advisable to avoid anything that can prevent the adhesive from bonding properly.
You already have celebrity-style eyelashes. Eye makeup is not even needed for a few weeks because your eyes already look so good. But if you still feel the need to add mascara, just apply a little bit on the tip of your lashes. Anything that touches the root can cause the chemicals in the adhesive to react, leading to lash fall out. Also, do not use oil-based makeup and water-proof mascara.
Washing your face is fine, but avoid intense scrubbing routines and also, rubbing your eyelashes is definitely not in your to-do list for the next few days.
The cleansing routine for your eyelash extensions is pretty simple. Just take a mild shampoo like Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo and gently massage the lashes. It is natural that one or two real eyelashes fall off during this cleaning process, but there’s no need to panic because they will grow back on their own.
The last one can be a bit difficult to follow. Sleep on your back when you have your extensions. Sleeping face down can cause them to get all messed up and weak and your look might be gone when you wake up in the morning. Though this is really difficult to follow, especially for people who are used to sleeping face down, it can really help you maintain your gorgeous look for a few more days.
The rest of the don’ts are pretty obvious. Don’t use an eyelash curler (you don’t need them anyway) and resist the urge to rub your eyelashes at all costs.
Eyelash extensions can give you that beautiful look you’ve been yearning for and caring for it in the right way can make it last longer. With just a little bit of care, you can flaunt those long, thick lashes for a few more days. After all, won’t making it last make you happier?
