Dos of Lash Extension Aftercare

  • Cleanse Daily: Gently cleanse your lashes daily using a lash extension-safe cleanser. This removes dirt, oil, and makeup residue that can weaken the adhesive bond.
  • Brush Regularly: Use a clean spoolie brush to gently comb through your lashes daily, keeping them neat and preventing tangling.
  • Be Gentle: Avoid rubbing or pulling on your lashes. Pat them dry after cleansing and avoid sleeping on your face to prevent bending or crushing your extensions.
  • Use Oil-Free Products: Choose oil-free makeup removers and cosmetics around the eye area. Oil can break down the lash adhesive, causing extensions to fall out prematurely.
  • Protect from Water: Avoid getting your lashes wet for the first 24-48 hours after application to allow the adhesive to fully cure.

Don’ts of Lash Extension Aftercare

  • Avoid Oil-Based Products: Oil-based skincare products, cleansers, and makeup removers can weaken lash adhesive, causing extensions to fall out sooner.
  • Skip Cleansing: Neglecting to cleanse your lashes can lead to buildup of dirt, oil, and bacteria, potentially causing irritation and infections.
  • Rub or Pick: Refrain from rubbing or picking at your lashes. This can damage both your natural lashes and the extensions.
  • Use Waterproof Mascara: Avoid using waterproof mascara on your lash extensions, as it requires oil-based removers for removal, which can damage the adhesive.
  • Pull or Twist: Resist the temptation to pull or twist your lash extensions. This can cause them to become loose or fall out prematurely.
