Maintaining Your Eyelash Extensions Between Fills: A Guide from Beauty Room Destin

Welcome to the Beauty Room Destin blog, your go-to source for all things beauty! Today, we're diving into the world of eyelash extensions, particularly how to keep them looking fabulous between fills. For those who love the allure of long, fluttery lashes but want to maintain their health and appearance, this one's for you!


Understanding Eyelash Extensions


Eyelash extensions are individual fibers attached to your natural lashes to enhance length, curl, fullness, and thickness. They are usually made from various materials like mink, silk, or synthetic fibers. But, as fabulous as they look, they require some TLC to stay that way.


Tips for Eyelash Extension Care Between Fills


1. **Be Gentle**


Your eyelash extensions are delicate. When cleansing your face or applying/removing makeup, be gentle. Avoid rubbing your eyes, and when drying your face, gently pat around the eye area.


 2. **Clean Regularly**


Keeping your lashes clean is vital. Use a gentle, oil-free cleanser to remove any buildup of makeup, oil, or dirt. We recommend using a soft brush or a clean mascara wand to softly comb through the lashes, keeping them free of tangles and debris.


3. **Avoid Oil-Based Products**


Oil-based skincare and makeup products can weaken the adhesive used for your extensions, causing them to fall out prematurely. Stick to oil-free products, especially around your eyes.


 4. **Sleep Smart**


Try to sleep on your back to avoid crushing your lashes. If you're a side sleeper, consider a silk pillowcase, which is gentler on both your skin and lashes.


5. **Resist the Urge to Pull**


If you notice a loose lash, resist the urge to pull it out. Pulling can damage your natural lashes. Instead, visit us for a quick fix or wait for your next fill appointment.


 6. **Keep Them Dry**


For the first 24-48 hours after getting your lashes done, keep them dry. This allows the adhesive to set properly. After this period, be cautious around steam and high humidity, which can weaken the bond.


7. **Regular Fills**


Regular fills are crucial. They not only keep your lashes looking full but also prevent the awkward phase where the extensions have partially grown out. We recommend getting a fill every 2-3 weeks.


8. **Use a Sealer**


Consider using a lash sealer. It helps protect against elements that might weaken the adhesive, like dust, oil, and moisture.


9. **Nutrition for Natural Lashes**


Keep your natural lashes healthy with a nutritious diet rich in vitamins and proteins. Lash serums can also nourish and strengthen your natural lashes.


10. **Professional Removal**


If you decide to part ways with your extensions, get them professionally removed to prevent damage to your natural lashes.


Your eyelash extensions are an investment in your beauty routine, and with the right care, they can remain as stunning as the day they were applied.
