Summer Lash Extensions – Dos & Don'ts

Summer Lash Extensions – Dos & Don’ts
With the weather warming up and the sun beginning to shine once more, this must mean that summer is coming! Whether you have a hot holiday abroad booked or have a super stay-cation all lined up, at Glow For It we know you want to look your best this summer.
Before any holiday, there’s a long list of prep that has to happen so that you can feel fabulous. If this included lash extensions for you, then keep reading because this month’s Glow Goss is all about lash extensions – what to do and what not to do.

Don’t Rub Your Lash Extensions
This may be obvious, but don’t rub your eyelash extensions! If you rub your extensions, this can lead to irritation, lash damage and can even rip your lash extensions out (potentially taking your natural lashes with them!).
If you feel the need to rub your lash extensions, make sure to be gentle with them. Instead of rubbing, try using your spoolie to brush your lashes out. If you’re feeling an itching sensation or any irritation, then this may mean that you need to clean your lash extensions.
However, if the irritation persists, or begins not long after getting a fresh set of lashes, then make sure to contact your lash technician as your extensions may need to be removed. You can remove your eyelash extensions at home using oil, but you should talk to your lash technician before putting anything on your extensions.

Don’t Over Expose Your Eyelash Extensions To The Sun
Although getting a fresh set of lashes seems like the perfect idea for a hot holiday abroad, this can actually cause a lot of damage to your natural lashes. This is because, the glue used when applying eyelash extensions can react with heat which in turn can cause breakage and damage to your lashes. If you’re planning on tanning a lot whilst wearing lash extensions, make sure to wear sunglasses and take breaks from the sun to give your eyelashes a break too.
You may also want to consider not wearing lash extensions at all on holiday! Don’t worry, keep reading for top tips on how to not wear eyelash extensions this summer.

Don’t Feel Like You Have To Wear Eyelash Extensions
As we were saying… You shouldn’t feel like you have to wear lash extensions on holiday. You are perfect just the way you are! At Glow For It, we want to help you feel confident in your own skin and glow from the inside out. So, now we have our top tips for what you should do about lash extensions this summer.

Do Grow Your Natural Lashes With Glow For It Lash Serum
Better late than never! Start your lash growth journey now and you may even see results in time for your holiday. It takes 3 months for lash growth serum to take full effect, but we’ve had clients that have used our Glow For It Lash Serum and see results in as little as 2 weeks!

Do Give Your Natural Lashes A Lift With Glow For It Lash Lift Kit
Who needs eyelash extensions when you can give your own lashes a lift for a long, full, fluttery effect? Rather than damaging your eyelashes with extensions, treat them with love and a lift! While extensions are prone to falling out and leaving gaps, lash lifts will create a lasting, full lash look.
Whether you’ve been using our Glow For It Lash Serum or not, use our Glow For It Lash Kit to accentuate the length of your natural lashes. For those of you that have been using our lash growth serum, a lash lift is a great way to show off your eyelash growth results!

Do Use Glow For It Lash Serum To Strengthen Your Lashes For Extensions
If you feel that eyelash extensions are a must for summer holidays, then you do you boo! To help limit the damage to your natural lashes, we recommend you use our Glow For It Lash Serum before getting your extensions to help strengthen your lashes in preparation. You can even use our lash serum whilst wearing lash extensions to keep your eyelashes moisturised and provide them with the nutrients they need. However, you must check with your lash technician before putting anything on your eyelash extensions.
