CAN YOU SWIM WITH EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

Don’t let your gorgeous lash extensions get in the way of beach or pool plans! With some precaution and a little care, lash extensions are swimming-safe! In fact, they’re one of the best options for staying glam by the water.

  

Read on as we debunk all your eyelash extension swimming myths. PLUS, we’ll share our favorite lash extension tips for swim day.

1. CAN I GO SWIMMING IF I HAVE LASH EXTENSIONS.

You absolutely can go swimming with lash extensions. Be sure to give your new extensions eight hours to set before getting them wet (this goes for swimming, showering or washing your face)

2. CAN I SWIM IN THE OCEAN WITH EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

Yes, but if you’re splashing through waves, we do recommend wearing a pair of swimming goggles to protect your extensions from salt (which can break down the adhesive used to attach your natural lash to the extension) and friction—water pressure from waves or even a high-pressure shower can place extra stress on your extensions, which may cause them to shed early. Swimming goggles leave plenty of space for your fluttery lashes.

3. MY LASHES WON’T LOOK THE SAME AFTER I GO SWIMMING.

False: They can and should, but you do need to take care of them for that to happen. Aftercare is critical to ensuring your lashes look as good after your swim as they did before. You wash and brush your hair after hitting the pool, right? It’s the same for your lashes.

Keep your lashes intact for longer and be sure your vacation pics look flawless by choosing the right products and following your recommended lash care routine:

  1. Opt for an oil-free sunscreen, and be careful to avoid your extensions when applying.
  2. Cleanse your lashes with after your swim (especially if swimming in saltwater or chlorine). 
  3. Pack a clean, soft, lint-free towel to gently pat your lashes dry.
  4. Brush through your lashes with a clean lash wand after a day by the water.

Should I Get Eyelash Extensions for a Wedding?

Eyelash extensions are ideal for all brides or attendees who wish to add extra length, thickness, and volume to their lashes on their wedding day. You should get your lashes done at least 2-3 weeks before the wedding to ensure the desired look is achieved and rule out an allergic reaction for that special day.

All brides deserve to have a kind of eyelash enhancement for their nuptials. Whether the lash extensions are semi-permanent or more temporary, the guarantee is that lash extensions will make your eyes look gorgeous in photos and will give your makeup a finished look.

Below are different reasons why brides should get eyelash extensions.

1- Lashes Are Easy to Care For

Generally, lash extensions are great for women whose mornings are always a mad rush to be early for appointments or work. With the hustling and bustling that comes with a wedding, you deserve a few minutes to sit back and relax.

A lot of time goes into making your hair and making sure your makeup is perfect. However, getting synthetic eyelashes before your special day can assure you that your eyes are already in excellent shape.

In addition, lash extensions can also help you be honeymoon-ready, thanks to the fact that they can last up to 4 weeks or more.

This means you will wake up every day feeling beautiful and bright without any need for makeup.

2- Being More Photogenic is Guaranteed (No Runny Mascara!)

Long, luxurious, and curled lash extensions always make the eye look dazzling and bigger; this is why people consider lash extensions for weddings in the first instance.

Even if you prefer a more natural makeup look for your wedding day, with lash extensions your eyes are still going to look beautiful in photos and appear less tired given the stress you have gone through the days preceding your big day.

Also, given the fact that most brides get teary on their wedding day, this should alone make you invest in eyelash extensions to avoid black streaks ruining your makeup. With synthetic extensions, mascara is not necessary so feel free to let your emotions flow.

3- Can Be Applied to Suit Your Style

The beauty of eyelashes is that there is no one size fits all, therefore; you can inform your lash technician about your preferences.

The technician can adjust the color, curl and length of the eyelash extensions to either enhance or tone your natural eyelashes.

You can also opt for a half set of lashes that is absolutely natural-looking or a full set that will give you a more dazzling look.

3 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE EYELASH EXTENSIONS

You’re busy. I’m busy. We’re all busy! If there’s one thing we could use a little more of – it’s time. Between family, work, school, chores and a long list of other obligations, most of us are always at least a little bit behind on what we need to get done. If you’re a woman this sometimes means you are sacrificing your “me time” in order to get everything done. When you’ve got a full day of craziness ahead of you your hair and makeup are usually the first things to go out the window. It simply feels wasteful to spend extra time on your appearance when there are so many other urgent things which need to be done! For this reason, a lot of women turn their noses up at the thought of eyelash extensions. They’ll take up frequent and long appointments in your schedule. They’re expensive. They’re high maintenance. They’ll mean fancy makeup every single day, but ain’t nobody got time for that!

Less Makeup – Women who wear lash extensions usually report that they need less makeup. Some women can get away without wearing any when they have lash extensions! The lash extensions are longer, darker and fuller, so they lift your eye area and really make your eyes “pop.” You can wear eye-shadow and liners if you want to! But you probably won’t need it. That’s great for your skin, your wallet AND your morning alarm clock time.

Low Maintenance – Sure you’ll need to get fills every 2-3 weeks, and those appointments can seem a little long. But other than driving to and from the appointment you won’t need to do anything else! Many women will tell you that they look forward to their appointments as an hour or two where they can lay down and just relax – and leave looking prettier! Lash extensions don’t require daily care or special products. Unlike mascara which has to be applied, touched up and then washed off every day – you don’t need to do a single thing for your lash extensions each day. This saves you important time in the morning when you’re rushing off to school, work or errands, and it shortens your nighttime routine – meaning you get to bed sooner! For some reason people think lash extensions will be a lot of work, but actually the opposite is true. Lash extensions can make your routine faster and easier every single day.

Big Impact – Once you get eyelash extensions it’s sometimes hard to believe you ever lived without them! The look can be as natural or dramatic as you would like, but the commitment is small. It’s not a tattoo or plastic surgery, but it will seriously enhance your look. With or without makeup you will look noticeably prettier, more feminine and more put together. And imagine that – with less time and effort than your current beauty routine!
