Congratulations! The eyelash extensions you’ve been dreaming about for eons are finally yours. How can you make sure those eye-opening beauties stay in perfect shape for as long as possible? At Amazing Lash Studio San Antonio, we know the top tips and tricks for how to care for eyelash extensions so you can keep them in their best condition.
Make gentle your new favorite word.
It’s easy to get a little fast and furious with makeup application and face washing when you’re in a hurry, but take the extra time to give your extensions some TLC. Too much rough stuff can break the bond or tangle the lashes.
Be careful with oils.
While moisturizing your lashes is a great way to keep them in shape, avoid getting any oil or cream directly on the skin. It can weaken the lash glue and cause the extensions to detach.
Comb them occasionally.
Even natural lashes get crisscrossed sometimes. Avoid difficult tangles by using an eyelash comb or spoolie wand to gently.
Pay special attention to makeup removal.
We know: The last thing you want to do at the end of a long day is spend hours taking off your makeup, but the extra effort here is more than worth it. Make sure to use oil-free removers and work slowly up and away from the extensions.
Don’t touch them constantly.
Pulling, twisting or otherwise messing with your new lashes doesn’t just damage the extensions; it can hurt your natural lashes too. Unless you’re applying or removing makeup, adopt a hands-off policy. Your esthetician will thank you.
Keep up with the maintenance.
Though extensions definitely take the hard work out of having lush lashes, it’s important to learn how to care for eyelash extensions as well as plan a maintenance visit once a month. Not only will the touch-ups keep your extensions looking full and beautiful, but it’s also way easier than starting from scratch once the lashes have completely shed. Here’s looking at you, gorgeous!
