v Avoid hot steam from the shower and sauna as well as swimming and tanning salons altogether for the first 48 hours. After this period try to keep sauna, steam room & tanning visits to a minimum as the application of constant heat may cause the adhesive bond to weaken.
v Avoid using harsh mechanical eyelash curlers as they can break both natural and synthetic lashes. A heated eyelash curler can be used sparingly to help shape and curl lashes on the TIPS of the lashes ONLY. Do not apply heated eyelash curler to the base of the lashes where the lashes are bonded.
v Avoid using any oil based cleansers on or near the eye area. Use an oil-free eye make-up remover. Do not use cotton balls, cotton rounds or swabs directly on the eyelashes as the fibers may get lodged in the bond area of your lashes.
v Although mascara is not necessary with your eyelash extensions you can use it sparingly, on the tips only to achieve an even more dramatic look. Avoid using oil based or waterproof mascara as the ingredients in it will dissolve the bond of the adhesive.
v Avoid using any oil based products on or near your lashes. Oil will dissolve the adhesive bond! Use water or gel based cosmetic products instead.
v Above all, BE GENTLE! Do not pick or pull your lashes and refrain from excessively rubbing your eyes.
24hr Tips: Remember that the first 24 hours are especially crucial for the bonding to properly occur! Common activities you need to avoid during the first 24 hours include showering, washing the eyes, tanning, applying creams or lotions to the eye area, applying mascara or any eye make-up, excessively touching the lashes, spas, steam rooms, sauna, swimming, exercising, contact lens solutions and sleeping on the lashes.
Daily Tips: The most common causes of lash fall out before the end of your natural lash life cycle include excessively touching the lashes, use of oil based products, layering on excessive amounts of mascara which requires excessive cleaning, and frequent exposure to heat sources such as spas, steam rooms and tanning salons.
