Taking Care Of Your Lash Extensions In Winter

Lash extensions are amazing for people who love luscious lashes but don’t have them. They are a better alternative to spending time applying mascara or trying to get strip lashes to fit. When applied by a professional, lash extensions last many weeks, you do, however, need to take good care of them for them to last you a long time.

With winter swiftly approaching and the temperatures steadily falling in Long Island, it’s important to understand how to correctly care for your lashes during this season.

Safe steaming

Long baths, heated pools, and saunas are common during winter. They help you feel energized during the bleak winter months. When you have lash extensions, you need to be very careful when using a hot tub or sauna. Make sure you never rub or touch your eyes when in the water. The hot water softens the adhesive, making your lashes prone to shedding when you touch them. You can touch your lashes once you’re out of the sauna and the adhesive has cooled. The same applies for when you steam your face too.

Book appointments for refills

Part of the maintenance of lash extensions is having refills to keep them looking fresh and even. Don’t hold off on appointments for too long, the shedding lashes can make your eyes look uneven. Get in touch with your salon every 2 to 3 weeks, depending on how well you take care of your lashes. Refills are quick and easy. The esthetician will also remove any twisted or overgrown extensions too. They will also check your natural lashes and let you know if there’s any problem.

Get a fresh set of extensions

If you have given your lashes a break from extensions, winters are the perfect time to have another set applied. In winters our eyelashes grow slower, making your extensions last longer. If there’s a style you have yet to try, consider having it done in winter. It will keep your “glam” ready for the holiday season and you won’t have to spend as much time to get ready when meeting friends and family. We suggest you try a volume set for a more dramatic look for the holidays.

Follow a healthy diet

You might wonder what a healthy diet has to do with your lashes. Consuming a healthy and balanced diet is essential for your body, skin, hair, and nails. Consuming the necessary vitamins and minerals will ensure your eyelashes and eyebrows grow healthily. One of the important minerals for hair and nail growth is silica. It’s present in bananas, leafy greens, green beans, brown rice, cereal, and even beer! Vitamins B, D, and E, are also great for your hair and skin. Always consult a physician before beginning any supplements so that they can prescribe the appropriate dosage for you.
