Remember how exciting it was to loose lashes as a kid? Every new eyelash meant another wish to make when you blew it into the air. But chances are you've grown out of that. And now falling lashes cause a panic. But don't worry, here are some tips to help you take care of your natural lashes.
Avoid touching or pulling at your lashes
Sometimes eyes get itchy and it's easy to absently rub at them or scratch. But this is the easiest way to loose lashes. If your eye feels itchy then try gently patting it.
Check the expiration date
Makeup expires! Make sure that you're keeping track of how long your makeup lasts and don't use expired mascara. Using expired product increases your chances of eye irritation which can lead to scratching the eye and losing lashes.
Use the RIGHT product
Not all makeup is made equal. Some products have harsh ingredients that can strip the natural oils from your skin. Brands like Xtreme Lashes use natural ingredients in their mascara like tea, calendula, parsley, angelica, and dogwood fruit extracts that protect, condition, and add shine to your lashes along with volumizing and darkening them.
Avoid False Eyelashes aka Falsies
False eyelash glue chemicals can be damaging to your lashes and you risk pulling out your real lashes when taking them off. And the weight of falsies creates pressure that can damage the hair follicles and inhibit future growth. Consider eyelash extensions which are lightweight and follow the growth pattern of your natural lashes. And as a bonus, you can sleep in them and treat them like your natural lashes.
Moisturize your lashes
Just like your skin and hair, lashes need moisturizing too! Use a clean wand to apply oils directly to your lashes. The Xtreme Lashes Protective Coating is a fantastic product that adds longevity and protects your eyelashes with only 1-2 applications per week.
