What can I clean my eyelash extensions with? Where can I find a great Eye Makeup remover that is kind to my Lash Extensions? A question I get asked very often. My recommendation has to be the Eve Taylor Micellar Eye and Lip Cleanser.
I am not supposed to get my lashes wet!
Often clients think that they should avoid getting their lashes wet, and that this will help them to last longer. This is true for the first 24 hours, as you will be advised by your lash technician, but not cleaning your lashes could actually mean they do not last as long as they should. Not cleansing regularly or correctly can also lead to infections, irritations, poor lash health/growth and lash mites.
Why should I clean my Lashes?
Dead skin cells, dirt, makeup and oil can build up in your lash line really quickly! The build up eats away at your lash extension's bond, breaking it down over time. Lash extension glue LOVES to be kept clean in order to maintain it's strong bond to your natural lash. Dirty lashes causes your lash glue to become weak resulting in extensions falling off your natural lash instead of lasting the entire life of the natural lash cycle and falling out when the natural lash is shed. Dirty lashes don't necessarily look dirty when looking in the mirror, but under your lash technician's lamp with magnifying glasses the build up is very obvious.
What products should you avoid on your eyelashes?
If you love your eyelash extensions then you want to look after as well as you can. This means keeping them clean, but without damaging them or the adhesive. You should be trying to avoid using products that contain oils around the eye area. These include cleansers, moisturisers, cleansing oils, aromatherapy oils, spray toners, coconut/rosehip oils, eye creams and even shampoos and conditioners.
