As we make way for the balmy summer weather and celebrate the presence of the glorious sun back in our lives again, it is also time to realign our beauty routine so that it doesn’t get in our way of enjoying summer and managing our lashes. Imagine having to worry about your lashes when you could be relaxing on a beach or chilling with your mojito in the pool?
Let’s look at some summer tips you could use to overcome the challenge of looking after your lashes:
What are summers without dipping yourself in the fresh and calming waters? Warning you to avoid the beach or the pool completely is a bit extreme. The next best thing to do to retain your lashes would be to wash them regularly and avoid using any oil-based products on your skin. Since sunscreen is imperative in the Aussie sun, choosing a water-based one and applying it as far away as you can from your lashes would be a wise choice. If you sweat excessively or have just taken a dip in the pool, ensure that you wash your lashes immediately. Prolong Lash Cleanser Foaming Pumps are specially formulated to cleanse your lash extensions. They are easy to use, gentle on the skin, and vegan friendly. Use a soft cloth to pat dry your face, ensure that it doesn’t snag your lashes.
Summers mean lots of outdoor time, including feeling inspired to hit the gym more often or going for a run or bushwalking. With lashes on, and the heat and humidity levels dialled up several notches, chances are you are perspiring more than ever. Wear a sweatband or a hat to prevent sweat dripping down your lashes and keep a soft cloth to wipe down a sweaty face to avoid the build up of natural oils. Prolong Lash’s makeup cloth is designed to clean your lashes with utmost care. Carry your lash bath with you to wash them whenever you can.
Barbecues are fun and a great way to catch up with family and friends. When hosting a barbecue or a bonfire party, steer away from getting too close to any heated or open fire devices. Extreme heat can singe eyelash extensions. Wearing a pair of sunglasses can add a layer of protection.
The eye area is one of the most sensitive areas of our face. It has fewer oil glands, and the skin around the eye is less flexible, lacks moisture, and breaks down quickly. In summers, due to more prolonged exposure to the sun, it can advance the process of aging. With lashes on, you may find it challenging to use an eye serum because most eye serums on the market contain oil based ingredients.. Using such an eye serum would mean carefully dabbing it away from your lashes to avoid any damage, but it would also mean that a considerable part of the eye area would be left unnourished.
Prolong Lash’s oil-free eye serum is the world’s first eye serum formulated especially for lash extensions. The hyaluronic acid in the serum helps the eye area stay supple and moisturized. Ditch the makeup, flaunt your beautiful lashes, and nourished skin instead this summer, go the ‘au naturale’ way.
If you are washing your lashes religiously and looking after them by the book, do not panic if you are still noticing a continuous shedding of lashes. It’s a natural process, our body prepares for the warmer weather, which means you will see that your eyelash retention rate may go down as the seasons change. What can you do?
Unfortunately, it is important to allow your natural lashes to do their thing and shed as they need to, simply keep them as clean as possible to allow for the shedding to happen seamlessly, and by your next refill you’ll have a beautiful base to work with. Remember you should book extra time for your summer appointments because your shedding will be greater in summer.
It is better to mentally prepare your clients that summers scream for more refill appointments than the rest of the year. It can be a bit of a bummer with lash shedding and the humid weather, but hey! If clients are educated and know about the increase in shedding well before it starts it will be an easier pill for them to swallow.
Summers are fun, and long and beautiful lashes make them worth it to flaunt. Just follow these tips then you know you have nothing to worry about.
