One of the major advantages of wearing semi-permanent eyelash extensions is that you’re able to swim without the worries of running mascara.
When applied correctly, eyelash extensions can give you the look of mascara and the curl of a lash curler without using those tools again. After the initial 48 hours application, you may swim, get in the sauna or hot tub and still look fabulous.
During the summer days, more clients are enjoying water activities and have had questions on how to care for their lash extensions. Since I have worn the XtremeLashes long term and enjoy swimming year-round, I’d share personal tips on how to save their eyelash extensions:
The best way to save your semi-permanent eyelash extensions is to wear swimming goggles. The lens must fit comfortably so that the extensions do not touch the lens.
If swimming without goggles, DO NOT WIPE OR RUB YOUR EYELASH EXTENSIONS! This is very hard to get used to, I know from personal experience. Wiping above the lashes and under your eyes is best, avoid constant touching of the extensions.
Once out of the water, GENTLY dab the extensions with a dry towel or lint-free cloth. Regardless of saltwater or a chlorine pool, the extensions need to be cleaned just like your hair needs to be shampooed. If XtremeLashes Mascara Wand or disposable mascara brush is present, groom your eyelash extensions into place.
I hope these tips are helpful. If you’re wearing a different brand of eyelash extensions, inquire with that company about products they might have to preserve their lashes.
