With summer coming to an end, everyone’s trying to squeeze in one more last minute beach trip, soaking up as much sun as possible and swimming with friends before cold weather sets in. Just as we need sunscreen to protect our skin from UV damage, extensions need extra protection and care during warmer, more sunny months. The last thing we want to worry about on vacation is needing a fill or worse, paying for a full set after our summer trip. These tips will help you maintain your extensions so your lashes look poppin’ all summer long, whether on land or at sea. Use our tips to keep your or your clients’ lashes beautiful.
- Avoid Water: Absolutely NO pool water (or any water for that matter) within 24 hours of getting lashes done.
- Clean Your Lashes: Cleaning your lashes is essential. We produce more oils during the summer which will cause more fall out if not taken care of properly. Bella Lash Cleanser can be used to help with this. You can use it on a day to day basis. We also recommend using our deep cleanser 2-3 times per week. Removing the oil, debris and dirt will help keep lashes looking beautiful and fluffy.
- Oil-Free Only: We put our eyelash extensions through a lot especially during summer. To avoid losing lashes prematurely, take precautions. We recommend using only oil free sunscreen and cosmetics. Our Bella Lash Intellisystem, which is a three-step line of extension-safe mascaras, is ideal for every stage of eyelash extensions. It’s an oil-free formula made with sealers and binders to help cure and maximize adhesive bond strength. This can be used on a day to day basis and is HIGHlY recommended during sweaty days, swimming and more.
- Keep Up With Your Fills: Because summer is always so crazy busy, it’s always good to schedule your appointment in advance to ease you and your lash artist’s mind. Waiting to be put into a lash artist’s schedule last minute is risky and sometimes can prove to be fruitless. Don’t wait around in hopes of a time opening up.
Lashes make for a simple and carefree summer. Less time worrying about your lashes means more time spent having fun! Rely on Bella Lash for the best products to keep your lashes looking amazing all year long.
