If you’re new to eyelash extensions, you might be wondering whether the cold weather will affect your extensions or what you can do to keep them looking and feeling great this winter. The good news is that lash extensions, once they are applied and let set, they are extremely durable. Each extension is glued to a natural lash for it’s full lifespan, meaning that nothing can separate that extension from your lash until the lash itself falls out. The average life-span of a natural eyelash is about six to ten weeks. Our clients usually come in for lash fills every two two three weeks to maintain the FULL effect.
In the winter, the cold air can be dry, and dry skin will affect the health of your natural lashes themselves. This means you might shed more lashes in cold months than you do at other times of the year, and that could result in shorter-lasting extensions. Be proactive about protecting your lashes. The best thing you can do for your extensions is to maintain a healthy skincare routine all year round.
-Drink lots of water to keep your skin and hair moisturized
-Avoid oil-based products, like makeup remover, on your lashes as it may break down the adhesive. We like to use Xtreme lashes oil-free formulated makeup remover (available at Lash Boutique!)
-Try not to rub your eyes (even when washing your face). Dab gently instead.
-Do not use metal/crimp eyelash curlers as will damage the extensions.
-Follow the aftercare instructions we gave you!
