Top 5 Ways to Take the Best Care of Your Lash Extensions

5-ways-to-take-care-of-lash-extensions

Here at The Lash Lounge, we can never stress enough the importance of taking care of your lash extensions.  Our goal is to provide information on how to best care for them so that your lashes always look flawless and most all, that you are happy and love them.  Today we are sharing the top 5 ways to care for your lash extensions. If you are doing all of these things, then you get an A++ from us!

Let’s get started! The first thing you need to do to take the best care of your lash extensions is . . .

1. Keep Them Clean: What’s the best way to clean lash extensions, you ask? Using a lash extension safe cleanser. At The Lash Lounge, we offer two cleansers that are specially formulated for cleaning your extensions: Oil Free Liquid Remover and Oil Free Gel Remover. Our gentle, oil-free and alcohol free eye makeup removers have the same pH balance as natural tears and come in a liquid or gel formula. For cleaning your eye area to remove makeup and eyeshadow, we recommend applying the cleanser to a cotton pad. Be sure to saturate the cotton pad because the dry cotton could catch onto your lashes. Very gently rub your eyelid and avoid rubbing your lashes. When you need to clean your lashes, use your lash wand and gently brush through your lashes. (More on how to clean your lashes in the video at the bottom.)

 2. Wear No Mascara (or very little): The beauty of lash extensions is that you have lovely, long, full lashes without having to wear mascara. We know that some ladies may still want to wear mascara on occasion, and that’s okay as long as it’s a mascara made for lash extensions. However, wearing no mascara at all is better when it comes to extending the life of your lashes. If you simply must wear mascara, be sure to ONLY wear a water based mascara (like our Ultimate Volume Mascara and Lengthening Mascara).  This is not the same as a water – proof mascara. Not sure what the difference is between water based and water – proof? Click here to find out.  Also, when applying your lash extension safe mascara, only use one single coat and only apply to the tips of your lashes.

3. Don’t Drench Your Face in Water: When you have lash extensions, it’s best to refrain from drenching your face/lashes in water. Too much moisture can cause the bond to break which can cause your lashes to shed.

4. Omit Oil Based Products: Any skin care products, creams or cosmetics that are oil based are a ‘no-no’ when it comes to lash extensions.  Be sure to select products that are labeled oil free to ensure the longevity of your lashes. And when in doubt – always read the label of ingredients to make sure what you are using is truly oil free.  For a list of the best and worst makeup items for lash extensions, click here. You can also check out our wide range of exclusive, Lash Lounge cosmetics here.

5. Maintain Refills Regularly: Sticking with your refill appointments every 2 weeks will keep your lashes looking their absolute best.  The longer you wait for a fill, the harder it is for your lash stylist to keep your lashes looking full and fabulous.  If you go too long without getting a lash refill, a full new set may be required.  So maintaining your refills is a good idea in more ways than one!

Another wonderful way to best care for your lash extensions (that we must mention) is by using a Longer Life Coating Sealant 2-3x a week.
