How to Care for your Eyelash Extensions


Eyelash extension enthusiasts know the importance of maintaining their extensions for as long as possible, which is why we’ve provided top tips to assist you with maintaining them.

Keep Them Clean

Water isn’t something to fear when it comes to eyelash extensions as after they have been properly dried they become waterproof. Unfortunately, many people assume that the advice for aftercare suggests not getting your extensions wet for at least 24 hours after getting them put on, meaning you must avoid doing this regularly in order to maintain proper cleansing and ensure Vipperens long lasting extensions of eyelashes. But uncleansed eyes could lead to many issues including them not lasting their intended length of time and other related health concerns arising as a result.

Avoid Oil Based Products

Products containing oil are the main enemy of eyelash extensions because they compromise all adhesives for eyelashes, making your extensions much less secure. Therefore it is vital that you are aware of this fact as many cosmetics and creams contain oil. When purchasing products for both your face and eyes be sure they’re labeled oil-free; failing this, natural oils can build up over time, eventually breaking down their adhesive properties – leaving less oil build-up means longer-term extensions!

Wear No Mascara (or Very Little)

Extensions for eyelashes have the capability of giving you longer and fuller lashes without the need for mascara. While we understand some may still choose to use some type of eyelash extension specific mascara on occasion, extending life is best achieved without using mascara altogether; water-based or non-waterproof options should only ever be considered when selecting water-based versions or regular mascara for application on extensions ends.

Sleep on Your Back

Stomach sleepers may be surprised to learn that lying with their heads on the pillow could result in eyelash loss; to prevent this, try sleeping lying on your back instead if possible – your eyelashes won’t be affected as you rest!

Arrange Regular Infills

Of the various suggestions mentioned here for taking care of eyelash extensions, scheduling regular infill appointments every two weeks is of utmost importance in keeping them looking their best. Delaying getting these appointments done makes it more challenging for Lash Experts to keep your lashes looking flawless and full; waiting too long may necessitate full sets instead!

Quick Ways to Achieve Better Eyelash Health

If your eyelashes have short, sparse or straight hair, there’s no need to pull them out if you want long, fluttery lashes. With an average eyelash lifespan of one month it usually doesn’t take too long before results show themselves.


For those suffering from short or easily falling out lashes due to traditional mascara use or any number of drying factors, including olive oil, coconut oil or vitamin E application at nighttime on your index fingers could help. Close your eyes before gently applying the oil along your lash line so as not to overwhelm or inject oil directly into your eyes; by doing this regularly it will help you prevent tears as well as make eyelashes fuller and lengthier!


Supplements shouldn’t be forgotten when considering improving growth of hair and eyelashes. Omega 3s, multivitamins, biotin, Vitamin B3 (niacin), wheat protein, caffeine and provitamin B5 all help promote eyelash growth; consult your physician about which one would work best!

Healthy Diet

Eating healthily and eating the appropriate amounts can do wonders for our overall health and appearance, including your eyelashes! A balanced diet that includes adequate amounts of water consumption can aid lash growth and shine by providing good fats and proteins like beans, nuts and avocado which support good eyelashes and hair health.

Avoid Harsh Ingredients

Be wary of mascaras containing harsh and synthetic chemicals that could compromise your lashes’ strength; otherwise they’ll only get as strong as their weakest lash. Try to avoid drying alcohols, coal tar, Teflon or any other components which could dry and break your lashes; look instead for pure mascara without fragrance, parabens and phthalates that is safe to use.

Never Share Eye Makeup

Sharing isn’t caring when it comes to eye makeup! Tools used for applying it and the makeup itself can become breeding grounds for bacteria that could potentially spread conjunctivitis (pink eye) or even worse, herpes or Staph infections in users.
