When to give eyelash extensions a break?

Long-term use of synthetic eyelashes entails risks, especially when it comes to the condition of natural eyelashes, since they suffer trauma to the eyelashes as they become shorter, thinner and weaker and, in some cases, the total loss of natural eyelashes may occur. There is also the threat of eye health problems, such as conjunctivitis and the long-term problem of bletharitis, which could mean that any future use of eyelash extensions is no longer a consideration. To ensure that natural eyelashes recover from the constant use of eyelash extensions, eyelash extensions should be removed every six to eight months to allow the eyelid line to be thoroughly cleaned after months of makeup and bacteria buildup, and also for natural eyelashes to grow and thicken. We recommend a minimum of two months of rest after eyelash extensions to allow natural eyelashes to fully recover and regrow.

There are a lot of eyelash growth serums on the market and they can be purchased online or at stores like Boots and some department stores. For extensions to look complete and fresh, retouches should be scheduled every two to four weeks. For the beginner but curious, I asked the owners of four eyelash extension salons (and an ophthalmologist) what to expect when they're spreading. Taylor strongly recommended not trying to remove your extensions at home, as did all the eyelash gurus I spoke to.

Another factor with the problem that some may have with the natural weakening of the eyelashes after using an eyelash extension, may be related to the size and length of the extension, since the heavier the glue-laden extension on the natural eyelash, the more likely it is that the hair will become It breaks, so it's advisable to consult the expert before asking about the longest and thickest eyelash extensions available, since your poor eyelashes may not be able to withstand this for long periods of time. When a client asks me if they should take a break from their eyelash extensions, I consider two things. To preserve your extensions, keep them clean and gently untangle them with a mascara stick or a flawless brush every day. There's no other alternative to this problem; you simply can't pull out your eyelash extensions even if your eyelash artist misapplied them.

Eyelash extensions are both addictive and a luxury, allowing you to dress stylishly in the morning in a heartbeat without spending hours in front of the mirror. After your consultation, don't let the extensions get wet for the next 24 hours to allow the glue to dry completely. I once made the mistake of running a 10-K on a hot summer morning right after applying my eyelashes at night, and I remember wiping my sweaty face with my hand and finding three or four fugitive extensions in the palm of my hand. You can't have eyelash extensions if you experience redness, itching, swelling, pain, or any other problem in or around the eye area.

It's a very simple process: a technician applies a removal serum to the eyelashes and removes the extensions.
