What to Avoid for Longer, Healthier Lashes

While working towards longer lashes, it’s crucial to steer clear of habits that may hinder your progress. Here are a couple of things to be mindful of:

  • Avoid Eye Rubbing:
    • As tempting as it may be, try not to rub your eyes, especially during hay fever season or when feeling tired or frustrated. The delicate nature of your eyes means that rough treatment can lead to eyelash loss or even burst small blood capillaries.
  • Say No to Harsh Cleansers and Makeup Removers:
  • Opt for gentler products for your eyes, whether it’s makeup remover or night cream. Choose items without parabens or scrubbing beads to prevent not only the risk of pulling out eyelashes but also to avoid premature lines and wrinkles. Prioritize products that are kind to your lashes and skin.
  • Avoid Prolonged Use of False Lashes:
  • While strip lashes offer a quick fix for short lashes, they come with risks. Applying false lashes regularly with glue or a magnetic strip can harm your natural lashes and increase the chance of losing them. To prevent damage, never leave false lashes on for too long. Use a gentle cleanser to dissolve the glue and slide the lashes off instead of pulling or tugging.
  • Consider Safe Lash Extensions:
  • If your natural lashes aren’t cooperating, lash extensions provide a safe and easy solution. These individual lashes, available in various materials like silk, mink, faux mink, and synthetics, are bonded to your own lashes for added volume and length. Unlike false lashes, extensions are less invasive since you don’t have to take them on and off daily. Lash tinting, offered at places like Vibrance, can enhance the look of your lashes without mascara for weeks.
  • Embrace a Personal Lash Care Routine:
  • Remember, your eyelashes play a significant role in framing your eyes and overall appearance. If you’re not satisfied with your lashes, there are various ways to encourage new growth and maintain their health. Even if your lashes are on the shorter side, adopting a proper eyelash care routine can make a noticeable difference.
