Eyelash extensions require some extra care that you might not be familiar with up top. Here are some hard-and-fast tips for maintaining them:
For the first 24 to 36 hours after your session, avoid getting the lashes wet and avoid humid environments. This way, the adhesive can cure as well as possible.
Avoid anything that may rub up against your eyes, which might mean waiting until allergy season has come and gone if you suffer from itchy eyes at certain times of the year. You should also try not to sleep face-down, as the friction with your pillowcase could cause the lashes to twist out of place.
When cleansing or removing makeup, opt for oil-free products, like foaming cleansers.
Try to gently brush the lashes for 10 to 15 seconds per day. Position a clean spoolie brush mid-way through the lash shaft and move it upwards towards the ends of the lash. Again, you’ll need a clean spoolie every time to avoid getting bacteria in or near the eye.
