Eyelash Extension Aftercare

To care for your lashes, be sure to follow these general guidelines:

In the first 24 hours after getting your lashes done:

  • Avoid having hot showers or baths, as the steam can breakdown your lash adhesive
  • Avoid wearing eye makeup after your appointment

Ongoing care tips:

  • Keep lashes clean and free of dust and debris
  • Avoid oil-based skincare products, cleansers, and makeup removers as they cause the glue to breakdown faster – use only oil-free products
  • Avoid oil-based eye makeup, particularly eyeliner. When removing eyeliner, use a cotton swab with oil-free makeup remover
  • Use care when applying eye makeup
  • Avoid applying additional mascara over your lash extensions, as this puts you at risk of losing lashes sooner than normal. Apply mascara will also clump the lashes together
  • Do not use an eyelash curler
  • Take additional care when washing your eye area; we recommend avoiding rubbing your eyes, and instead, use cotton pads or swabs to gently remove your makeup
  • Avoid putting your face directly into the shower stream; the water pressure may result in damage to your lashes
  • Sleep on your side or back and wear an eye mask with eye cavities to avoid pressing your lashes into the pillow
  • Brush out your lashes with a mascara wand at least once a day in the morning, especially after getting them wet. Do this carefully without tugging your lashes
  • Keep lashes away from direct heat such as ovens and blow dryers as they can cause your lash extensions to sizzle on the ends
  • Moka SPA&Salon recommends touch-up appointments every two to three weeks to maintain your new eyelash extensions.
