Maintaining eye and eyelash health is essential for those who wear eyelash extensions. To ensure the best bond between the natural eyelashes, the adhesive and the eyelash extension, it is important to clean your eyelashes regularly. It is recommended to use a foaming cleanser specifically for eyelash extensions and to clean your eyelashes at least every other day. If you have oily eyelids, the care routine can be daily.
When applying an extension, it is important to make sure that the surface of the eyelashes is clean. If not, the adhesive will stick to the dirt and not to the natural eyelash, causing them to peel off quickly. As an all-time beauty enthusiast, it's recommended to clean your eyelash extensions a minimum of two to three times a week. If you have oily skin or use petroleum-based products, it is important to clean your eyelashes every day.
To clean your eyelashes, start by taking off your makeup with an oil-free makeup remover. Then apply a specially formulated foaming eyelash cleanser to an eyelash brush and gently brush your eyelashes from base to tip. Rinse your eyelashes with a clean eyelash brush and dry them with a reusable makeup towel. Brush your eyelashes with a clean mascara stick and take off your makeup with an oil-free makeup remover and a reusable makeup wipe. If you are a fitness enthusiast or avid swimmer, it is important to clean your eyelash extensions more often than others to avoid significant accumulation of sweat and dirt on your eyelashes.
After you finish your new set of eyelash extensions, it is smart to wait a minimum of 48 hours before trying to clean them. It is recommended to use a professional cleanser for eyelash extensions that nourishes, deeply cleans and protects natural eyelashes. Substances such as oil, salt, sweat, and chlorine will damage the glue that holds eyelash extensions together. Invest in a quality foaming eyelash cleanser that will thoroughly clean, protect and nourish your eyelashes. Clean your eyelash extensions as often as you would clean your face, ideally twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Keeping your lashes clean and free of dirt accumulations can help ensure that natural eyelashes continue to grow and fall in their natural cycle.
A filler should not be your choice when you have few or no eyelash extensions left; filling is only done when you are just starting to see the gaps and you still have 50% of your lashes left. To maintain healthy, long-lasting eyelash extensions, it is important to keep them clean. Use a specific foaming cleanser that does not contain oil or alcohol and a brush to clean your lashes every day. If you normally wash your face in the shower, make sure to wash it outside the shower afterwards to protect your extensions.
