Having eyelash extensions can be a great way to enhance your look, but it's important to know how to care for them properly. Resting your head and eyelashes on a silk pillowcase is the ideal way to sleep with eyelash extensions. Not only will it allow your eyelashes and the extensions themselves to slide over the surface while you sleep, but it will also prevent your eyelashes from getting stuck or lying around, such as when you use a cotton pillowcase. Sleeping on your back is recommended if you want to maintain the lifespan of your eyelash extensions.
Other options include using a special pillowcase made of silk, using 3D eye masks, or even trying an eyelash pillow. When you sleep on your side with eyelash extensions, we recommend that you sleep with your lashes hanging from your pillow. No beauty blogger would recommend sleeping with sticky false eyelashes, as thick lashes tend to irritate the delicate skin around the eyelids. Sleeping on your back may provide a little more space for your lashes during the night and should reduce crossed and tangled lashes in the morning.
This position is also called supine sleep. Your eyelash extensions won't suffer any pressure or friction when rubbing against the pillows in this position. If possible, you should get rid of the sleeping mask so that your lashes have the space and freedom they need to grow properly. While you can't sleep well with strappy lashes on, eyelash extensions are designed to be more flexible and resistant to natural wear and tear.
That said, be careful when sleeping on your stomach: your eyelashes may rub against the pillow and, as a result, fall out faster. It's important to protect your eyelashes from undue pressure and friction when you're sleeping soundly. Changing your oil-based skin care products and learning to sleep on your back are just a few ways to keep your eyelash extensions looking healthy. Additionally, cleaning your lashes regularly with a gentle cleanser will help break down makeup residue and keep them clean and free of harmful build-ups. Sleeping with hybrid eyelashes wouldn't be a habit, but when necessary, you can do so knowing that you're unlikely to damage your eyes or eyelashes.
