Showering with eyelash extensions is perfectly safe when the glue has cured. This is because eyelash extensions are applied using waterproof glue designed specifically for lash extensions. In this post, we will discuss how to wash eyelash extensions in the shower.
You can rest assured. Water will not cause your extensions to fall out prematurely. They will naturally fall out in accordance with the growth cycle of the eyelashes.
Although showering with eyelash extensions is entirely safe, there are several precautions you should take to ensure the longevity of your eyelashes. When bathing with your lashes, follow these easy tips to enhance their retention.
Eyelash Extensions in the Shower
Here are some ways to wash eyelash extensions in the shower.
Avoid Rubbing Your Eyes
To begin, bathing with lash extensions is not the same as showering without them. Scrubbing is a no-no and is made much more dangerous while wearing fake eyelashes. You cannot scrub the dirt away like you normally do. Rather than that, while showering, be nice and mild on your body.
Remove the loofah and body brush from the bathroom since both may catch and tug on the lash extensions, causing them to fall prematurely.
Avoid Water Pressure
The pressure of the water gushing out of the shower straight into your eyelash extensions might have a negative impact on their retention. As a result, avoid directing the showerhead directly at your eyelashes and avoid high-pressure showers and jets.
When showering, you may turn around to let the waterfall on the back of your head rather than the eyes. Alternatively, while bathing, you might cup water in your hands and rinse your face.
Cleaning Your Eyelashes
Simply cleaning your lashes with water will not eliminate the oil and debris that builds between your lashes. To completely remove oil from your eyelashes (including oil from the cleaning products you’re using), it’s best to wash your lashes and face towards the end of the shower, after you’ve cleansed your body and hair.
It’s simpler to clean your lash extensions if you use a cosmetics brush rather than your hands. Begin by lathering the cleanser onto your brush and applying it to your eyes. Take your time carefully cleansing your eyelashes with an appropriate eyelash extension cleanser. To be honest, you do not need to scrub hard to maintain the cleanliness of your eyelash extensions.
Pro Tip: Some individuals prefer to cleanse their lashes in the sink after showering rather than in the shower. In this manner, you’re more likely to spray water softly on your face, avoiding excessive pressure and rubbing.
Drying your Eyelashes
Most people would grab their bath towels to dry their lash extensions after showering. Whether your towel is lint-free or made of cashmere, it’s critical to avoid wiping your lashes dry with it. This is because such towels often snag on lash extensions. Gently pat dry with a towel to eliminate any moisture.
After showering, you may air-dry your eyelashes. If the process takes too long, invest in a portable fan such as this one available on Amazon.
If you like to fast dry your lashes after bathing, turn the hair drier to cold air and use the cool low setting. Avoid bringing the dryer too near to your face; a few inches away will keep the dryer’s high-pressure air away from your lashes.
