Lash extensions are one of the hottest trends right now, but like any new beauty product, there are a few things you need to know in order to keep them looking their best. In this article, we’ll outline the basics of aftercare for lash extensions.
Use a serum to nourish your lashes
Using a specially designed serum will nourish your lashes and keep them strong and healthy. Look for a product that provides amino acids and proteins that help to promote growth, as well as strengthen your eyelashes and promote their natural thickness.
Most serums come in liquid form and need to be applied directly to the lash line on clean skin at night before bed, as your eyes are closed it’s best to be sure that you have removed all eye makeup with a cleanser or oil prior. Growth serums are designed for everyday use, so you should apply them consistently for the best results.
Use a spoolie brush
Using a spoolie brush for Sugarlash Pro is one of the best ways to care for your newly applied extensions. This type of brush is designed specifically for eyelash extensions, helping to easily and safely separate your natural hair from each other without accidentally pulling out or removing your extension. It also prevents clumping and removes dirt and oil from the lash lines.
To use a spoolie brush, gently comb through your upper and lower lash lines in an upward sweeping motion. While brushing, pay attention to any areas that may need further attention. Make sure not to rub or press too hard as this could rip or damage the extensions.
For best results, use daily after cleansing your face and before applying makeup:
- Gently comb through your upper and lower lash lines in an upward sweeping motion.
- Pay attention to any areas that may need further attention.
- Do not rub or press too hard as this could rip or damage the extensions.
Apply a gentle cleanser for makeup removal
For optimal results, it is essential to use a gentle cleanser to clean and maintain your lashes. This cleanser will not only remove minerals, dirt, and oils from the skin around your lash line but also remove makeup and any residual adhesive. When cleaning your extensions it is always best to avoid an oil-based cleaner as this can cause the extension adhesive to break down.
Opt for a mild and non-irritating foaming cleanser that has no oils or harsh ingredients in the formula. Choose a product specifically designed for eyelash extensions if possible as these are gentle enough to use on very sensitive eyes. You should also make sure that products used on or near the eyes are marked safe for contact lenses in case you wear them.
As with any beauty treatment, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your lash extension technician. If you experience any burning, stinging, or redness following your appointment, it is important to immediately stop using the products and contact your technician. Additionally, take note of the times that your appointments are scheduled and make sure to keep those dates and times in mind so that you do not miss a step in your aftercare plan.
