5 Tips for Maintaining Healthy and Long-Lasting Lash Extensions

Lash extensions can add drama and definition to your eyes, but they require proper care to maintain their health and longevity. Follow these tips to keep your lash extensions looking fabulous for as long as possible.

  1. Avoid water for the first 24-48 hours after getting lash extensions. This allows the glue to fully set and helps prevent your lashes from falling out prematurely. After this initial period, be gentle when washing your face and avoid getting water directly on your lash extensions.

  2. Be careful with makeup and skincare products. Oil-based products can break down the glue that holds your lash extensions in place, so avoid using them near your lashes. Use oil-free makeup removers and be gentle when removing your eye makeup to prevent damaging your lash extensions.

  3. Use a lash extension-friendly mascara. Regular mascaras can be too heavy for lash extensions and can cause them to fall out prematurely. Look for mascaras that are specifically formulated for use with lash extensions, or use a clear mascara to add a little extra shine without weighing down your lashes.

  4. Get regular touch-ups. Lash extensions will naturally fall out as your own lashes shed, so it's important to get regular touch-ups to maintain a full, luscious look. Most lash technicians recommend getting a touch-up every 2-3 weeks.

  5. Be gentle with your lashes. Avoid rubbing or pulling on your lash extensions, and avoid sleeping on your stomach or face-down to prevent your lashes from getting crushed. This will help your lash extensions last as long as possible.

By following these tips, you can enjoy healthy, long-lasting lash extensions that add drama and definition to your eyes.
