How to Care for Your Eyelash Extensions

November 01, 2016

Caring for your eyelash extensions is key to their longevity and to keeping them attractive while you are wearing them. Following are some tips to remember when wearing your eyelash extensions:

--When you are using eyelash extensions, one of the first rules is don’t wear mascara on top of them. Mascara has oils in it which can break down the glue holding your extensions in place. This will loosen the extensions and you will risk having them fall out early.

--You also won’t want to use an eyelash curler on your extensions. The extensions are already curled and if you try using a curler on them it will crimp them, changing the shape they were designed to hold.

--You will want to avoid using eyeliner near your extensions. If you use a liquid liner it will clump in the extensions and will be difficult to remove. If you just can’t go without eyeliner, go with a powder-based one.

--When cleaning your eyes, avoid anything with lint in it, such as cotton balls and Q-tips. Eyelashes are attracted to lint, which will get caught in the extensions and is difficult to remove.

--When using make-up remover, choose an oil-free remover. We have found Johnson and Johnson Baby Shampoo makes an excellent, simple remover because it is gentle, effective and oil-free.

--It is important to wash your face every night. While it is actually normal to have mites on the eyelashes, people who leave heavy makeup on overnight are susceptible to Demodicosis. This condition causes the eyelashes to fall out, because of too many eyelash mites. According to television personality, cardiothoracic surgeon and author, Dr. Mehmet Oz, 50% of Americans have eyelash mites because of sleeping in eye makeup. Don’t skip this vital step in your eyelash care!

--And finally, the key to having your eyelash extensions last a long time is not to touch them. This means you will want to avoid rubbing them, pulling at them, and sleeping on them. A good habit to get into is sleeping on your back or side.
