Lash tips for your summer trip

  • Keep oily sun products away from the eyes. Tanning oil and sunscreen affect the bonds of extensions
  • Clean the eye area thoroughly before bed with a gentle oil-free cleanser Clogged lash follicles get itchy and rubbing them means bye-bye lashes
  • Only use mascara specifically developed for lash extensions
  • Wash lashes daily, even if you’re not wearing makeup, and pat them dry to keep oil, sweat and dirt at bay
  • Swim more in the sea. It’s more lash-friendly. Salt water doesn’t affect lash bonds, while too much chlorinated pool water does
  • Hydrate lashes to stop them drying out in the heat. Pack a tube of Lash & Brow Conditioning Serum  

Things to avoid on your summer trip

  • Don’t have extensions in hayfever season if you’re a sufferer. Eye-rubbing equals lash fallout. Choose LVL instead
  • Don’t go in the swimming pool until 24 hours after your lash treatment.  Remember, all types of newly treated lashes need to stay dry for 24 hours
  • Don’t pick off or pull out lash extensions.  Using force to pull out extensions can leave behind stubby lashes and cause permanent lash loss, as the natural lash will break off with the extension. The best way to remove extensions is with a Lash Extension Remover
  • Don’t rub off makeup. Delicately press or dab the eyelids with cotton pads instead
