Eyelash Extension Aftercare
Aftercare is about protecting your eyelash investment and
getting the most out of each and every eyelash application.
What do I need to do to care for my eyelash extensions?
Don’t wet your eyelashes for 24 hours after your appointment. This will give the glue an appropriate amount of time to cure. This means you should also avoid steam rooms / saunas and swimming during that period.
Your lashes will last longer if you do not use mascara. Do not use waterproof mascara on your eyelashes. A water soluble mascara or one designed specifically for eyelash extensions is fine to use, although you’ll probably find that you no longer require mascara.
Use cotton swabs to remove makeup by working gently around the eyelashes.
Do not use cleansers, makeup removers or moisturizers that contain oil or solvents on your eyes, as these will compromise the bonding agent used to adhere your eyelashes.
Do not rub your eyes, instead you should get used to patting your eyes gently which is in fact much better for the eyelashes and the sensitive skin around the eyes.
Be careful not to get your eyelashes caught on clothes when you’re dressing and undressing or towels when you’ve showered.
Never pull your eyelash extension off as it will pull out your natural eyelash. If you want them removed contact Pretty Peepers for professional eyelash removal service.
Do not perm or tint your eyelash extensions.
Do not use eyelash curlers on your eyelashes.
Book your next eyelash refill within 2 weeks in order to maintain your optimum eyelash effect.
After you shower, pat your eyes dry with a towel. Do not rub.
