We all love having long and perfect lashes, but they can be really hard to achieve if you don’t take care of them!
Everyday beauty routines, makeup application and excessive cleansing can all cause damage to your lashes, without you realising it. Over time, your lashes could lose their volume and length… But what actually is it that’s damaging your lashes?
Leaving eye makeup when you go to bed!
We have all done it – left our makeup on or not taken it off properly after a night out. Without a doubt, cleansing after a few drinks is definitely a challenge… But it has to be done! Leaving makeup on overnight allows bacteria to build up and often leads to lashes falling out. Do you really want to risk your lashes, just because cleansing is effort?!
Top tip: Leave your cleansing products next to your bed as a reminder.
Curling your lashes after applying mascara!
Just don’t do it. Using eyelash curlers and mascara together is like pairing socks with sandals; it should never be done! Mascara makes your eyelashes sticky, so when you use curlers, they can get stuck to them and end up being pulled out… ouch. You can still curl your lashes, just make sure you do it before applying mascara.
Not taking your false lashes off properly!
False lashes can look amazing, but they can also seriously damage your lashes if don’t take them off properly. We all know how great it feels to peel them off after a night out but it’s so dangerous – your lashes can actually stick to the falsies and be pulled out! So, no touching until you have glue remover in hand.
Rubbing your eyes!
Bathe don’t rub! When your eyes are itchy, the first thing you want to do is rub them, but this can break your lashes and cause them to fall out. If your eyes are irritated, try bathing them with an eye wash or some eye drops instead – your eyes and lashes will be better for it!
Too much takeout?
We all know how important eating healthy is. Our diet can impact our skin, digestion and even our sleep. But did you know that what you eat can also affect your lash health? Eating poorly can affect our hair follicles, which can cause it to fall out – that include lash follicles too! A well-balanced diet is super important to keeping your lashes healthy. Don’t worry… you can still treat yourself every now and again!
Getting eyelash extensions?
Getting eyelash extensions is one of those quick-fixes that you should try to avoid. Obviously, when you want to look your best for an event or night out, your first thought might be to get lash extensions. Whilst they do give you instant results, they are not good for the future of your lashes! The weight of eyelash extensions and the glue can both damage your natural lashes, so if you want to keep your natural lashes looking luscious, say no to extensions.
