How to Make Your Eyelash Extension Last Longer?

Eyelash extensions are a luxurious way to enhance your already gorgeous features for long-lasting, fantastic results. Since the initial application of eyelash extensions can cost you around $150-300, you need to make sure you get the most perfect results. Here are 8 tips to help you get the longest wear out of your new or retouched lash extensions.


Tip #1: Avoid water for the next 24 hours after lash extensions

Wetting your lashes before the glue sets is the biggest no-no in the eyelash extension rule book, so make sure you stay away from the 3S: steam, shower, and swim within the first 24 hours. The water will cause the glue to start to dissolve, which will cause your lashes to start falling out. Shower before your appointment to help you avoid showering after applying your new lashes.


Tip #2: Sleep on your back

Pressing your face against a pillow at night is one way to make your eyelashes wrinkle or fall out faster. It turns out that lying on your back can prolong the life of your lashes. Sleep on your side, it’s a challenge for you!

While it can be difficult to change sleep habits, sleeping on your back can also help reduce lower back pain, so consider this bedtime change a win-win. Try ergonomic neck pillows, as they can help you avoid tossing and turning at night and make it easier to sleep on your back.

Tip #3: Use an oil/alcohol-free makeup remover

Oil, alcohol, and eyelash extenders don’t get along, so be sure to steer clear of beauty products that contain oils or alcohol, even lotions you use on your face. Using products containing them may cause your lashes to fall out prematurely. Dab the makeup remover around the eyes, then use a wipe (oil and alcohol free) or cotton swab to remove any remaining makeup.


Tip #4: Regularly comb and clean lashes

Cleaning and combing new lashes is the easiest way to extend the life of your lashes. While this may seem self-explanatory, life can get in the way of even the simplest of tasks, so brushing your lashes and cleaning them is a new part of your morning routine. Eyelashes get tangled while you sleep, so brushing them off in the morning is recommended, but of course brushing again before bed is also a good idea.

If you’ve already washed your face at night, washing them doesn’t have to add a step to your routine, but make sure you’re using an oil- and alcohol-free face wash, or it can backfire. There are many lash extension safe face washes on the market, or you can get one directly from an lash salon that does lash extensions.
