Eyelashes are like the frame around a beautiful piece of art. You would never see a Van Gogh in a five-dollar plastic frame, so why should short or lackluster lashes surround your gorgeous eyes? A lash lift and tint can give you longer, darker, beautifully curved lashes every day without ever reaching for your mascara. Because saving time and energy makes the treatment so appealing, many people considering this procedure want to know what to expect from their lash lift and tint maintenance. So, what can you do to keep your lovely new lashes looking their best?
LASH LIFT AND TINT MAINTENANCE: THREE THINGS TO AVOID
The initial process of a lash lift and tint is simple. Your beauty technician will begin by using a deep conditioner to keep your lashes healthy and strong and then apply the perming solution. This simple procedure offers stunning results for six to eight weeks, as long as you stay on top of your lash lift and tint maintenance. Here are three big things to avoid to keep your lashes looking great for as long as possible:
1: Hands Off!
Your treated lashes need some time to rest after your lash lift and tint. For the first 48 hours, be sure not to touch your eyelashes while the treatment sets. If you sleep on your side, you might want to try lying on your back so your lashes don’t touch the pillow. With a bit of care early on, you won’t have to worry about your lash lift and tint maintenance for weeks.
2. Keep Your Head Above Water (Literally)
Getting your recently-lifted lashes wet is a big no-no in the first 24 to 48 hours. Be very careful when showering or washing your face in that period, as water can cause your lashes to droop. Remember, crying is bad for your treatment as well, so you should probably wait a few days to watch your favorite tear-jerker after your treatment.
3: No More Mascara
We recommend using oil-free makeup and skincare products because oil will break down your lash tint causing your lashes to fade. Because a lash lift and tint procedure gives you darker, longer, and more dramatic lashes, you typically won’t need to wear mascara and can finally say goodbye to that daily ritual. With proper attention to your lash lift aftercare, you can enjoy the stunning effects for six weeks before you’ll need another treatment.
After all those lash lift and tint maintenance don’ts, here’s one significant important do: condition your lashes! Like the hair on top of your head, conditioning your eyelashes helps them stay supple and strong. Talk to your beauty technician for recommendations on what kind of lash conditioner is best for you.
