Eyelash extensions can make your eyes look stunning and dramatic. But with great beauty comes great responsibility! Proper maintenance is essential to make sure that your extensions last longer and stay hygienic. Lucy’s Lashes will discuss how to clean eyelash extensions.
Why is it important to clean eyelash extensions?
Your eyelash extensions are delicate, and they can easily accumulate dirt, oil, and debris from your skin and makeup products. If you don’t clean them regularly, it can lead to infections, irritations, and even the loss of your extensions.
Cleaning your eyelash extensions will not only keep them looking fresh but also prevent any potential issues. Additionally, it helps maintain the integrity of the adhesive and keep it strong.
How often should you clean your eyelash extensions?
It is recommended to clean your eyelash extensions at least twice a week. However, if you have an active lifestyle, wear makeup regularly, or have oily skin, you may want to clean them more frequently.
How to clean your eyelash extensions?
Step 1: Prepare the cleaning solution
Mix a small amount of oil-free makeup remover with water to create a gentle cleaning solution. Make sure the makeup remover is oil-free because oil can weaken the adhesive.
Step 2: Dip a spoolie brush into the cleaning solution
Dip a clean spoolie brush into the cleaning solution, making sure the bristles are fully saturated.
Step 3: Gently brush your eyelash extensions
Close your eyes and gently brush your eyelash extensions with the spoolie brush. Make sure to brush all the way from the base of your lashes to the tips, getting rid of any debris or build-up.
Step 4: Rinse your lashes with water
Once you’ve brushed your lashes thoroughly, rinse them with water to remove any remaining cleaning solution.
Step 5: Dab your lashes dry
Use a clean, dry towel or paper towel to gently dab your lashes dry. Make sure not to rub them harshly, as it can damage your extensions.
Step 6: Use a fan to dry your lashes
After you’ve dabbed your lashes dry, use a fan or a blow dryer on the cool setting to help them dry completely. Avoid using a heated blow dryer because the heat can damage your extensions.
Cleaning your eyelash extensions doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. With a few simple steps, you can keep your extensions looking fresh and healthy. Remember to clean them regularly, and use only gentle, oil-free products to avoid damaging them. Happy lashing!
