What Can't You Do After Eyelash Extensions?

After getting eyelash extensions, it's important to take proper care of them in order to keep them looking their best. For the first 48 hours after application, you should avoid getting your lashes wet and refrain from rubbing or touching your eyes. Clean them with a special eyelash cleansing foam every three days and brush the tips of your lashes in the morning. Additionally, you should not use any oil-based products around or over your eyes, and try not to sleep on your face.

Hot and humid environments, such as Bikram Yoga or steam showers, can reactivate the adhesive and cause the eyelashes to loosen, fall out, twist, or clump together. Therefore, it's best to stay away from these activities for at least 24 to 48 hours after application. You can still shower, but make sure your back is facing the water and avoid looking directly into the water as it can weigh down your new lashes. After 24 hours have passed, wash your eyelashes with a foaming eyelash cleanser every day and gently dry the eye area with a soft towel.

If you want your eyelash extensions to last for 6 to 8 weeks without needing a refill, it's important to avoid anything that involves getting them wet or steaming. Additionally, you should be careful not to expose them to high temperatures or damp surfaces for at least 24 to 48 hours after application. Make sure to clean your eyelashes properly after waking up each day as dirt can form crusts and block the eyelash follicles and their oily ducts. It's also important to be gentle on your eyelashes when using eyelash extensions.

Rubbing your eyes hard with your hands isn't good for them as you can accidentally tear them off during the process. Furthermore, you should avoid using mascara, oily makeup and strappy eyelashes as they don't look very good with eyelash extensions. People with certain medical conditions such as alopecia areata, eyelid dermatitis, trichotillomania and blepharitis should not get eyelash extensions. In conclusion, proper care of eyelash extensions is essential for keeping them looking their best.

Avoid getting them wet or steaming for at least 24 to 48 hours after application and be gentle when handling them. Additionally, refrain from using oil-based products around or over your eyes and don't sleep on your face. Clean them with a special foam every three days and brush the tips of your lashes in the morning.
