We all want our lashes to stay on as long as possible, Benito have 5 tips for the best Lash aftercare to keep your Lash extensions looking fresh, clean and fluffy up until your 2-week Lash Fix!

 

Avoid any water or steam in the first 24 hours

You need to give the glue time to set into the lashes so even though they are stuck onto your lashes it doesn’t mean that the glue is dry… the first 24 hours is critical anything that you do will determine your lashes lives! After 24 hours you will be safe to get them wet but ensure you don’t get them wet excessively as this will affect the longevity of the lashes.

 

Avoid any oil-based products

Oil is a tricky one as sometimes a product you use everyday can contain oil and you may not know! One product that most likely contains oil will be your liquid liner – ensure to check this before putting it on as it will loosen the glue bonds and result in lashes falling out… not good! Also when choosing a makeup remover try a water based product such as micellar water as it is gentle on your skin and lashes.

 

Try to stay away from waterproof makeup

Waterproof makeup is a God send in some situations but this doesn’t go well when wearing lash extensions. Waterproof makeup as we all know is difficult to remove so this could result in rubbing the eye area which will most definitely cause lashes to fall out or go in all kinds of directions.

Brush daily

Even if you don’t brush your hair you MUST brush your lashes! Don’t brush them excessively but 2-3 times a day is perfect to keep them in place and fluffy until your Lash Fix. Ensure not to brush them right from the root as this will be painful and you risk pulling out lashes in the process- your spoolie will be your best friend.

 

Lash cleanliness

You need to keep those lashes clean! Especially if you’re a lash addict who doesn’t have a break between lash appointments. To clean them all you need is baby shampoo (Check it contains no oils) and a soft makeup brush, you then wet the brush apply a small amount of baby shampoo and rub this gently over the lashes and eyelid; then rinse this off with clean water and brush your lashes through! This will remove any dirt that may be on your lashes.

 

 

 

These are all the ways you can keep your lashes looking on point until your 2 week Benito visit!
