Keep your lashes looking fabulous and long lasting by following these After Care Instructions.
- Do not use saunas, hot tubs or swimming pools for the first 48 hours. This will compromise the adhesive.
- Use oil free products, especially oil free make-up remover!
- Sleep on a silk pillow case to avoid sleeping on your face.
- Do not use Q-tips, cotton balls or cheap cotton pads to clean your lashes. Lint may stick to your lashes.
- Do not use regular crimping eyelash curlers. They will damage your natural lash and can break the extension. If you do want to use one, we suggest and offer a heated eyelash curler.
- Wash lashes at LEAST 3 times a week. This prevents infection due to bacteria buildup, improves lash retention between fills, and makes for better attachment during the lash fill.
- Avoid rubbing or touching your eyes or lashes. NEVER pick off your lashes! If you want them removed, please speak to a lash technician and have them professionally removed.
- Ideally, apply a sealant every 3 days to prolong the life of your lashes and to give them a dark, glossy sheen.
- No mascara is needed any more. Using mascara will compromise the glue which will weaken the extension. Should you still desire to use mascara, we do offer one that works great with your lash extensions.
The retention of your lashes between fills is dependent on your home care routine. Be good to your lashes and they will be good to you!
