Summer Lash Extension Retention Tips: Follow these and we promise you won’t be salty!

  • Protect Your Lashes from Water: 

  • While diving into the pool or taking a dip in the ocean is tempting, protecting your lash extensions from excessive water exposure is crucial. Remember to dry your lashes after you decide to take a dip in the water. The Mini Rechargeable lash fans we use in the studio are great for this! Just throw them in your bag and go.

  • Prolonged contact with water can weaken the adhesive bond, leading to premature lash loss
  • Pro Tip: Consider wearing goggles especially if you plan on emerging your lashes in the water!
  • Pro Tip: Wear sunglasses when going to the pool or the beach to protect your lashes from unexpected splashing! Here are a few we have been loving that are super affordable to keep in the beach bag!

  • Avoid Oil-Based Skincare Products:

  • During the summer months, heat and humidity can make our skin oilier than usual. It’s important to steer clear of oil-based/glycol skincare products, as they can break down the lash adhesive. Opt for oil-free cleansers, makeup removers, and moisturizers to keep your lash extensions intact and long-lasting. As a pro-tip be mindful of your sunscreens. 
  • When searching for an oil-free sunscreen that’s safe for the face, look for products labeled as “non-comedogenic” and “oil-free” to avoid clogging pores. Some popular options include Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen, La Roche-Posay Anthelios Clear Skin Dry Touch Sunscreen, and EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46. Always check the ingredients list and consider consulting with a dermatologist for personalized recommendations based on your skin type and any specific concerns.
  • Protect your skin but do not use spray sunscreen on or around your face. The oils will severely ruin your lash retention. If your skin is getting a bit more oily get yourself a makeup remover pad. Our obvious favorite is the Siroki Sponge removes all traces of makeup, and debris without using any chemicals! Waterproof bottom mascara? Not a problem. The textured groves help to gently exfoliate skin in the process, our ultra-absorbent sponge removes all products. Just add water!

  • Mindful Cleansing:

  • Proper cleansing is key to maintaining healthy lashes and preventing buildup. However, be mindful of the way you cleanse your lash extensions in the summer. Use a gentle, oil-free cleanser and avoid rubbing or pulling on your lashes. Typically the one your lash artist supplies will be fine and is best since it’s tested with their products. Remember, gently cleanse the lash line and extensions with a soft brush or a cleansing wand to remove dirt, sweat, and debris. Keep a mini lash shampoo in the beach bag so its always on the go with you! 
  • For more information check out this post to learn more about why if you dont frequently wash your lashes they may be falling out! 
  • Plan Ahead:

  • After outdoor summer fun make sure you bring a bottle of distilled water and at least rinse your lashes so that the salt particles from sweat and the beach are rinsed away until you can properly cleanse of course your face will be wet and you will need something to dry around the area. The Siroki Sponge is also perfect for this due to the design it is ultra-absorbent and won’t catch those lashes! Do not pat your lashes dry with a towel. This step is imperative to rinse away any residue that may be sitting on the lashes. When salt particles dry they can act as a remover and lift the extensions away from the natural lash similar to the banana peel method a lash artist will use in the studio during a fill-in, to remove outgrown lashes!
  • Stay Away from Excessive Heat:

  • Excessive heat can weaken the lash adhesive, leading to poor lash retention. Avoid exposing your lashes to direct heat sources such as bonfires, saunas, and hot tubs.
  • If you’re spending time in the sun, consider wearing a wide-brimmed hat, dad cap, or using an umbrella to provide shade and keep your lashes cool. Even that pair of cute pair of sunglasses recommended prior helps! Remember, your lashes can also melt when exposed to too much heat!
  • Stay tuned for a blog post on cute summer fashion essentials to protect your brows and lashes. If you liked those sunglasses you will love it! 
  • Brush, Brush, Brush:

  • Regular brushing is essential for keeping your lash extensions looking flawless. Use a clean mascara wand or a specialized lash brush to gently comb through your lashes daily after water exposure. We love this cute little lash wand perfect for a beach bag! Linked here! This helps to prevent tangling, keeps them aligned, and maintains their wispy appearance. Be gentle, start from the base, and work your way up to the tips. Place the brush back in its cover for sanitary safekeeping!

  • Keep Up with Refill Appointments:

  • Summer is a busy time filled with vacations and outdoor adventures. Don’t forget to prioritize your lash refill appointments to ensure your lashes stay full and beautiful. Regular touch-ups every 2-3 weeks will help maintain the desired volume and length, keeping your lash game strong throughout the summer season.
