If you want your lash extensions to look better for longer, you need to take care of them correctly. There are a few steps you should take to do this and some things that you need to avoid.
What To Do
During the first few hours, you should try not to touch the extensions. The more you touch them, the more oil from your fingers will get on them and this puts a strain on the lash root. You also need to keep them as dry as you can for 24 to 36 hours. You also need to avoid any steamy environments for at least 24 hours.
If you have an oily complexion, you will need to control this as much as possible with blotting paper. Mattifying lotions and oil-control moisturizers can also help. If you have dry skin, you need to avoid any oil-based products. Eye makeup cleaners and removers should be oil-free.
To clean your eyelash extensions, you should use a foaming lash cleanser. This should be used a few times a week to keep your extensions looking good. Baby shampoo can be used in small amounts, but should not be the conditioning type.
What Not To Do
If you use mascara, you need to avoid oil-based or waterproof options. This is the same for any eyeliner you want to use. Pen-style and felt tip liquid liner will generally be fine, but you will need to check with your beauty technician.
You should also avoid strip lashes being placed over your eyelash extensions. This can cause you to lose a few of your own lashes when you remove them. You should also avoid trying to remove the extensions yourself.
There are many steps that you can take to properly care for your eyelash extensions. There are also certain things that you need to avoid to keep them looking their best.
