How to care for your new lash service when you go on vacation.
Sandey's tips will help you get the most out of your lashes!
Swimming with Lashes
One of our favorite ways to cool off from the summer heat is to head to the pool! You may be wondering, “Can you swim with lash extensions?” The simple answer is yes! However, both chlorine and saltwater can affect lash retention time. So, whether you are swimming in a pool, lake, or the ocean, we recommend rinsing with fresh water post-swim and then combing through your lashes with a reusable lash wand or patting (not rubbing!) them dry to remove excess water. Keeping them clean and dry will extend the life of your luxurious lashes!
Avoid Direct Heat
While we love to bask in the summer sun, the extreme heat it brings can be damaging to your lash extensions. Exposing your lashes to this extreme heat can “relax” the curl, or even worse, singe the lashes! When grilling or snuggling up next to that toasty campfire, make sure not to stand too close or directly over the heat to keep your lashes intact and looking beautiful!
Summer = More Sweat
It’s pretty impossible to run around in the sun and not sweat. Unfortunately, sweat carries natural oils from your skin that can run into your eyes and affect lash retention. Here at The Lash Professional, we strongly believe in the benefits of exercise and “sweating it out.” However, to combat the effects of that sweat on your lashes, we recommend using a towel or sweatband when hitting the gym. In extreme sweating situations (such as hot yoga), rinse lashes post-workout with fresh water.
Keep Your Lashes Clean
Being outside more — camping, hiking, swimming, etc. — can lead to increased dirt and debris collecting in your lashes. We recommend keeping your extensions cleanby rinsing them gently in the shower, allowing the water to pass through. For a deeper clean, consider using our foaming lash cleanser and super gentle eyelash extension brush regularly. This extension tip will have your lashes looking fresh and new for a longer time.
Our last but certainly not least extension tip is all about protecting your skin! We firmly believe in the use of sunscreen. It is an absolute must for all of your favorite summer activities. However, it is important to keep in mind that many sunscreen brands contain oils that can lead to excessive lash shedding. We recommend taking extra care when applying your SPF by avoiding the eye area and allowing it to fully soak in before swimming or sweating.
