Wearing mascara / Waterproof makeup
One of the many benefits of lash extensions is not having to wear mascara. Mascara can breakdown the bonds in the adhesive of the extensions. If you insist on still wearing mascara, make sure to apply it only to the middle of the lashed down to the tip. We would not recommend waterproof mascara as it is harder to remove. This can result in tugging the extensions out of place when trying to remove it. Having said this, it is recommended not to use any mascara.
Oily skin or overly active oil glands
Having oily skin can be difficult to manage. It also can cause issues for lash extensions. Oily skin can break downtime glue adhesive, causing the extensions to have difficulty sticking. In extreme cases of oily skin, lash extensions might not even stick at all.
Picking or rubbing the extensions
Often you may find yourself rubbing your eyes, however excessive rubbing or picking at the extensions can loosen the adhesive and the cause of the extensions to fall out. This can also lead to the loss of your natural lashes. It is advised to not rub your eyes!
We all have a different sleeping position we find comfortable at night. Those who sleep on their stomachs may have issues with their lashes falling out. Placing your face directly on the pillow every night can cause your extensions to bend or rub against the adhesive.
Not caring for your lashes
Whilst you may be hesitant to touch your extensions, if you don’t remove the dirt, or debris, you might end up losing extensions. Not cleaning your extensions can invite infection or inflammation in the hair follicle. Brushing your extensions is also important. You should brush your lashes with a spoil or lash brush in the morning or after your shower. Make sure you use gentle strokes when brushing. Clean your spoil when your done.
Using the wrong skin care products
Using oily skincare products is not recommended. The oil can break downtime adhesive.
Medication / Vitamins
Thyroid medication can change the environment of the lash area., making your lashes naturally oilier. Please be aware if you are taking this medication your lashes may respond differently. If you take vitamins that encourage or stimulate hair growth, your lashes may shed faster.
Getting them wet too soon
It is recommended that you don’t get your new lashes wet for at least 48 hours after they are applied as the glue is still curing. If you do get them wet, they can crystallise and cause irritation which leads to rubbing of the eye.
