Lash extensions are a popular beauty trend that enhances your eyes and simplifies your makeup routine. To keep your extensions looking fabulous and lasting as long as possible, proper aftercare is essential. At The Skin Suite By Kristen in Tabernacle, NJ, we’re dedicated to helping you maintain stunning lash extensions. In this blog post, we’ll explore the dos and don’ts of lash extension aftercare.

The Dos: Essential Tips for Lash Extension Maintenance

To keep your lash extensions looking their best, follow these essential tips:

  1. Be gentle: Treat your lash extensions with care, avoiding rubbing, tugging, or touching them excessively.
  2. Cleanse daily: Cleanse your lash extensions and the surrounding area gently each day with a lash-safe cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and makeup residue.
  3. Brush your lashes: Use a clean, soft spoolie brush to gently comb through your lashes daily, keeping them untangled and looking their best.
  4. Schedule regular fills: To maintain a full, voluminous appearance, schedule regular fill appointments at The Skin Suite By Kristen every 2-3 weeks.

The Don’ts: What to Avoid with Lash Extensions

To prevent damage and prolong the life of your lash extensions, avoid these common mistakes:

  1. Don’t use oil-based products: Oil-based makeup, cleansers, and moisturizers can break down the adhesive used for your lash extensions, causing them to fall out prematurely.
  2. Don’t use waterproof mascara: Waterproof mascara is difficult to remove without damaging your lash extensions. Instead, opt for a lash extension-friendly mascara if needed.
  3. Don’t use eyelash curlers: Avoid using eyelash curlers, as they can cause damage and breakage to both your natural lashes and your extensions.
  4. Don’t expose lashes to heat: Keep your lash extensions away from direct heat sources, such as hair dryers or saunas, as high temperatures can weaken the adhesive or cause the extensions to lose their shape.
