Eyelash extensions are a great way to look beautiful and glamorous all summer long. But if you're planning to take a dip in the pool or ocean, there are a few things you should keep in mind to ensure your eyelash extensions stay in perfect condition. Cleaning your lashes immediately after swimming is essential, as chlorine and salt water can affect eyelash retention and elasticity. We recommend waiting 24 to 48 hours before going to the beach, especially if you plan to dive in the ocean.
Adhesive agents take 4 to 6 hours to completely seal, so it's important to avoid heavy water contact with eyelash extensions during this period. To protect your lashes from salt water and dirt, you can use glasses. Humid conditions can also be very complicated, so saunas and steam baths are completely prohibited, as they can cause the adhesive to “melt”. Apply IntelliSeal about 30 minutes before diving into the waves.
One of the first reflexes we have after leaving the pool or ocean water is to rub our faces and eyes. This is something you shouldn't do if you have a pair of eyelashes. Rubbing and pulling movements can cause a premature fall and cause accessories to come loose. We recommend that you avoid getting your eyelashes wet for 4 hours after the appointment so that the glue completely cures.
After this waiting period, it's safe to get your eyelash extensions wet without them falling out. When you're done cleaning salt, chlorine, or any other residue from your eyelash extensions, the next step is to dry them. This is crucial because cleaning helps to remove solvents such as salt or chlorine from eyelashes before they react with the eyelash glue used to fix extensions. Even more importantly, you should thoroughly rinse the last extensions after swimming to effectively remove all the chlorine they contain. While soaking in the pool from time to time won't damage your lashes right away, doing so on a recurring basis will cause your extensions to fall out sooner than usual. When applied correctly, eyelash extensions are rugged and resilient, but high temperatures can knock down even the best-applied lashes.
You'd be surprised to learn that even eyelash extensions have their preference when it comes to submerging them underwater. Look beautiful while traveling by following these best practices to keep your eyelash extensions looking fresh every day. You can go swimming in the pool with eyelash extensions unless you had your eyelash extensions less than 4 hours ago. There are a few things to consider when enjoying summer with eyelash extensions, but they are very easy to do and will ensure that you enjoy your eyelashes for as long as possible.
