How To Keep Natural Lashes Healthy

How To Keep Natural Lashes Healthy

Is looking after your natural lashes part of your daily beauty regime? Many people don’t realise how important it is to look after our eyelashes; not only for aesthetic reasons, but for our health too.

Here are some of our top tips for healthy, natural lashes..

Always take off your mascara before bed

It’s so important to take off your mascara and any remaining eye make-up before bed. Make-up clogs up the delicate skin around the eye, and can cause your eyelashes to become weak, dry and brittle. Removing your eye-make up every night will ensure your lashes stay healthy, but ensure you use a gentle make-up remover, as the hair follicles of the eye are very fragile and trauma can lead to the hairs thinning and falling out over time.

Leaving make-up on eyes overnight can also lead to a build-up of bacteria, which may lead to blepharitis which can cause eyelashes to either fall out or to grow abnormally.

We use the Nouveau Lashes Eye Make-Up Remover every night as the gentle oil-free formula is suitable for sensitive eyes, and can also be used on lash extensions and before applying strip lashes. It’s also perfectly suited for false lash fans as it will remove all traces of make-up without affecting the adhesive, perfect for long-term false lash wearers.

Our Lash & Lid Foaming Cleanser is also a treat for the eye area, offering a complete nourishing and soothing solution alongside optimal hygiene with or without eyelash extensions

Condition your lashes

You wouldn’t skip conditioning the hair on your head, so why skip conditioning your lashes? Frequently conditioning your lashes (before make-up in the morning, after make-up removal at night) will keep the lashes soft, strong and glossy. Make sure you start at the root of the hair to ensure you’re conditioning the hair follicle, and then carefully apply up to the tip of your lashes.

Because we are dedicated to lash care, we created our very own professional Conditioning Serum, designed specifically to help natural lashes look healthy and shiny. This serum can also be used as an eyelash primer to prep your lashes before applying mascara, boosting the longevity of your make-up.

The Nouveau Lashes Conditioning Serum is also perfect for those who have had the LVL treatment. After you’ve had the lash lift, using the conditioning serum will keep your lashes moisturised and healthy.

Don’t pick at or pull out lash extensions

If you have a lash treatment such as Extend or Express, it’s vital that you do not pick or pull your lash extensions as if you’re not careful, you’re likely to pull your natural lashes out too. If you want to remove your lash extensions it is best to visit a professional who can remove them safely and replace them if necessary. If you can’t get to a salon you can remove them at home using our Lash Extension Remover which is gentle, easy to use and kind to skin.

Eat a well-balanced diet

Just like the rest of your body, your eyelashes rely on you to be healthy over all, so eating well, staying hydrated and getting enough sleep will help keep your lashes looking healthy and luscious, which is the perfect base for any lash style.
