Maintaining Your Lash Game in Self-Quarantine: 3 Tips You Need To Know

If Madison Beer is known for anything, it’s her contagious smile, a killer bone structure, and wonderfully long eyelashes. Oh, how we wish we could steal those away for ourselves…
From protecting our eyes from dust particles to enhancing our overall look, eyelashes are a fundamental feature that can’t ever be downplayed.
However, beyond enhancing their appearance with mascara, there isn’t much that most of us do to look after our eyelashes’ general health.
If you want your lashes to be naturally long, luscious, thick, and flutter-worthy, take a look at some of these lash care tips you can try out—after all, haven’t we exhausted all other options in self-isolation by now?

Whether you have eyelash extensions or natural lashes, keeping them clean is the best way to ensure their longevity. Not only will it prevent premature eyelash fall, but it will also mitigate the risk of eye infections caused by dirt and bacteria getting caught on the lashes.

A great way to clean your lashes is to properly remove makeup, like eye shadow and mascara, at the end of each day. You can use a water-based cleanser and a cotton pad to wipe your lashes gently.

Retire your mascara

Your mascara may be the holy grail for your lashes, but if dystopian movies have taught us anything, it’s that the promise of eternal youth never plays out well.

We’re not telling you to stop using your mascara—we simply say that it’s best to use it in moderation. Wearing mascara daily, especially water-proof mascara that’s harder to clean can cause your lashes to fall off.

Additionally, you should also keep an eye out for the expiry date of mascaras. As a general rule, try to discard your mascara every three months.

Omit oil-based products

When it comes to eyelash care, oil-based products are a big no-no.

Whether you’re using an oil-based eyelash glue or an oil-based eyelash cream, now’s the perfect time to get rid of them. That’s because the oil components in the products’ formula get stuck to your lashes and are hard to get rid of.

This can also lead to bacteria formation and cause your lashes to fall away much quicker than you’d like.
