Lashes done correctly are beautiful... and expensive. Not only financially. If they are removed incorrectly they can cost you your natural lashes!! And that my friends is a NO NO. Make sure to use this short tips to remove your lashes properly.
Remove Lash Extensions: Steam and Oil
Remove your eye makeup
The first step to removing lash extensions using this method is to remove your already applied makeup. Be careful around the eye area where your lashes are in contact with the sensitive skin on your eyelids. Makeup wipes are cool but oils are the best. Use Sweet Almond Oil or Grapeseed oil to remove your eye make up.
Steam your face
Steaming your face helps to unclog pores and is a pleasant treatment for your skin. It also helps to loosen the eyelash adhesive that is holding your individual eyelash extensions on. The glue used at professional salons is extremely long lasting, and for this reason, it takes some effort to break the bond between your natural eyelashes and the fake added on hairs. You can steam your face by boiling a few cups of water, pouring it into a bowl, and holding your face above the steam rising from the water in durations of 30 seconds or so. Place a towel over the back of your head to create a tent-like area that can help to hold in the steam. You can also add in a couple drops of your favorite essential oil if you would like the process to have an aromatherapeutic effect.
Wet a cotton ball with Sweet Almond Oil, Olive Oil or Grapeseed Oil
Wet a cotton ball with Sweet Almond Oil, Olive Oil or Grapeseed Oil, and gently touch it to your eyelashes, using soft rubbing motions and applying the oil generously to the lashes. Be sure to get the actual hairs of your lashes oily and not just the lash line itself. As you are wiping, you will start to see your eyelashes extensions falling off. Continue to apply oil until they are mostly gone. Be careful with the oil, because whenever you apply oil near your eyes, it can cause your vision to be blurry for a bit. You can help your vision go back to normal faster by applying eye drops, which will wash away some of the oil near your eyeballs.
Rinse your eyelashes
Using a gentle face cleanser or just water, wash your face, making sure to rinse your eyelashes as well to get some of the oil off, or to remove any of the eyelash extensions that were left behind.
Most importantly use #PLUSH from LovGia Organics to thicken and lengthen your natural lashes.
