You might have heard your lash artist mention this during their aftercare rundown but our TOP TIP FOR LASH RETENTION is to
"CLEAN YOUR LASHES DAILY"
We hear you, "how could that help with retention?" Well, we have a couple HUGE reasons why this is true!
1. CLEANING YOUR LASHES DAILY REMOVES MAKEUP, OIL, DIRT & DEBRIS BUILDUP
All of these things can break down the bond between your lashes and the lash glue. This causes the extensions to shed quicker than your lash artist said you would see. Even oil from your skin & lids can cause a breakdown of the glue so it is essential to clean your lashes whether you have worn makeup or not.
2. WILL PREVENT FROM IRRITATIONS AND INFECTIONS
Not cleaning your lashes can lead to blepharitis which appears as inflammation of the eyelids and is usually caused by the tiny oil glands at the base of the eyelash becoming clogged. This can cause a dandruff-like flake to form around the base of the eyelashes. Your eyelids can appear red, swollen, or feel sore. This can even cause premature loss of your natural lashes!
3. PREPS YOUR EMPTY AND FRESH LASHES FOR NEW APPLICATION
Imagine trying to put tape on a dirty surface. It would be pretty hard for the tape to adhere. This is the same idea as lash glue and your natural lashes. If your lashes are not cleaned regularly and before your fill-in appointment the glue will not have a chance to fully adhere. If you did not have a chance to do this at home you can let your artist know and they can add a Lash Bath to your service!
