Maintaining clean and healthy eyelash extensions is essential for their longevity and preventing eye infections. In this step-by-step tutorial, we will guide you on how to effectively wash your lash extensions to keep them fresh and beautiful. Follow these simple steps to ensure proper cleansing:
How to Clean Eyelash Extensions
Step 1: Wet the Lashes and Prepare
Start by wetting your lashes using a small squirt bottle. To protect your under-eye area, place a clean towel beneath your eye.
Step 2: Apply a Gentle Lash Cleanser
Take 1-2 pumps of a gentle lash cleanser, making sure it's not baby shampoo as it may not be suitable for extensions. Apply the cleanser to your lashes, ensuring thorough coverage.
Step 3: Clean Between the Lash Extensions
To clean between the lash extensions, use a lash cleansing brush or a clean makeup brush. Gently work the brush in a downwards motion to remove any dirt or residue, paying attention to the lash line and the eye area.
Step 4: Cleanse the Lashes and Eye Area
Continue to work in a downwards motion, ensuring that the lashes and the surrounding eye area are thoroughly cleansed. Be gentle to avoid any damage or discomfort.
Step 5: Rinse with Water
Once you have completed the cleansing process, rinse the lashes and the eye area thoroughly with water using the squirt bottle. Make sure all the cleanser is removed.
Step 6: Pat Dry and Use Cool Air
After rinsing, pat the lashes dry with a clean towel. To ensure complete drying, use a fan or a hairdryer on the cool air setting. Avoid using hot air as it may damage the extensions.
Step 7: Comb and Fluff Lashes
Once the lashes are dry, comb and fluff them using a clean mascara wand. This step helps to separate and fluff the lashes, giving them a fuller appearance.
By following these steps, you can effectively clean your eyelash extensions and maintain their freshness and health.
