Lash Extension Care for Vacation!


Vacation season is near, it’s only right we teach you on how to protect your lashes!

We can’t get enough of lash extensions and traveling! Lash extensions are a great option when you've got an itinerary as long as your make up routine. Be gorgeous on the go with following these best practices to keep your lash extensions looking new every day. 

Here are a few tips to keeping your lash extensions looking fabulous all vacation long:

1) Rinse your lashes (& pat dry) after swimming.

Over time, both chlorine & salt water can affect lash retention. Whether you are swimming in a pool, lake or the ocean, we recommend rinsing with fresh water post swim, and then combing through your lashes with a lash wand or patting (no rubbing!) them dry to remove excess water.

2) Avoid direct/extreme heat near your lashes.

Exposing your lashes to extreme heat can “relax” the curl, or even worse…singe the lashes! When grilling or snuggling up next that toasty campfire, make sure not to stand too close or directly over the heat, to keep your lashes in tact and looking beautiful!

3) Vacation = aquatic activity & exercise = more sweat.

It’s pretty impossible to run around in the sun and not sweat. Sweat carries natural oils from your skin, that can run into your eyes, and affect lash retention. Here at The Lash Shop, we strongly believe in the benefits of exercise and “sweating it out”. However, to combat the effects of that sweat on your lashes, we recommend using a towel or sweatband when hitting the gym, or in extreme sweating situations (such as hot yoga) rinse lashes post workout with fresh water.

4) Keeping your lashes clean!

Being outside more – camping, hiking, swimming, etc- can lead to increased dirt & debris collecting in your lashes. We recommend keeping them clean by rinsing in the shower, allowing the water to pass through, or using our lash cleanser and super gentle cleansing brush to thoroughly clean them regularly.

5) Sunscreen application.

We believe in sunscreen! It is an absolute MUST for all of your favorite vacation activities. It is important to keep in mind that many sunscreen brands contain a variety of oils, which then can run onto the lashes, leading to excessive shedding. We recommend taking extra care when applying your SPF, avoiding the eye area, and allowing it to fully soak in before swimming or sweating.

Thanks to lash extensions, it’s never been easier to stay active and enjoy an array of vacation activities, all the while feeling gorgeous and photo shoot ready at any moment!
