Why is aftercare important for your eyelash extensions?
Similar to any good beauty investment, eyelash extensions need proper maintenance. If you take good care of your lash extensions, you can:

What does eyelash extension aftercare involve?
Below are what you should do to maintain your eyelash extensions.
Don’t get your lash extensions wet for 48 hours after your treatment
You should avoid any activity that may get your eyelash extensions wet for the first 48 hours after application. These may include washing your eyes, taking shower, etc.
The reason is that glue need time to completely bond extensions with your natural lashes. Getting wet will affect this process, making the bond weak and easy to break. As a result, your extensions may will not last as long.
After that, wash them regularly
After the first 48 hours, residue will begin to accumulate around the lash line if you don’t wash your extensions. This may cause eye infections and other unwanted eye issues.
Therefore, it is recommend that you clean your eyelash extensions every 3 days following the below steps:
- Brush the extensions with a soft bristle brush provided to you after your appointment.
- Wash them with a special lash shampoo or cleanser. You should carefully wash the roots and skin between your lashes to clean them off any dust or oil.
- Finally, run down your eyes with water to clean off shampoo or cleanser.
Brush your extensions every morning
You should brush your lash extensions’ tips every morning to keep them in their perfectly beautiful look.
Avoid oil-based products near your lash extensions
Avoid using any oil-based products near your eyelash extensions because oil will break the bonding of the glue and will cause premature extension falling off. As a result your set will not last long.
So please check your products carefully before applying – especially eye creams and make up removers.
You should also skip mascara, foundation and eyeliner on eyelids. Similarly, these products can soften the glue on your lash extensions and result in premature shedding.
Don’t pick at them
If it is your first time having eyelash extensions, it may feel weird at first. However, you shouldn’t pick at them as it will tear off your natural lashes. Instead, just leave them be and you will get more comfortable with them after a couple of days.
Do not rub your eyes either. Rubbing will damage both the extensions and your natural lashes.

Sleep on your back
