Trust me, a bit of TLC will go a long way so you can not only keep your lashes lifted and voluminous - but also rock that always done no make up look 24/7! 😇


Key Takeaways

  • after treatment care including a nourishment serum is crucial for growth and maintenance of your eye lash lift kit
  • Daily care routines preserve lash health and prolong the lift’s appearance

Immediate Post-Treatment Care

Following a lash lift, there's a few things you need to be conscious of

First 24 Hours

In the first 24 hours post-treatment, it’s imperative you stop yourself from getting your lashes wet.

This includes avoiding all forms of moisture like tears, sweat, and humidity to allow the lift to set properly.

Yes, steam too.

This means no showers or baths that expose your lashes to steam, no saunas, and definitely no swimming.

Keeping your lashes dry and undisturbed ensures the longevity of the lift’s effect.

If you really need to take a shower (I don't blame you - time to finally try out those cold showers your partner keeps telling you about 😂)

No Makeup or Cream

Let your lash lift settle in. No make up, no cream, nothing near your lashes.

Products like mascara, eye shadow, and eye cream can interfere with the lift, potentially causing the lashes to drop prematurely or not maintain their new curl.

Daily Aftercare Routine

Once you're through the first 24 hours, it's time to start your aftercare routine!

Follow these specific steps every day to keep your lashes looking their best.

Cleansing Regimen

To properly cleanse your lashes, use a gentle, oil-free cleanser.

Brushing Lashes

Gently brush your lashes each day with a clean spoolie brush to maintain their neat appearance.

This will also help in keeping them in the correct lifted and curled position.

Remember to brush your lashes daily to prevent any tangling or crisscrossing.

Sleeping Position

Your sleeping position can most certainly affect how your lashes hold.

Aim to sleep on your back as much as possible to avoid putting pressure on your lashes, which can cause them to lose their lift. It's difficult to avoid but minimise this as much as possible.

If you’re in a habit of sleeping on your side or stomach, consider using a contoured sleep mask to protect your lashes.

Long-Term Maintenance

Proper long-term care ensures the longevity and beauty of your lash lift.

Focus on routine upkeep, conditioning, and keeping an eye on the health of your lashes.

Regular Touch-Ups

Your lash lift is fabulous now, but maintain its allure with touch-ups every 6-8 weeks. Our lash lift kit lasts 8 weeks with every application, so just continue using the same kit as there's 10 applications each box (we gotchu).

And this is pretty much the optimal timeframe to allow your lashes to go through their natural growth cycles so you can be sure your lashes will still be healthy if you decide to lift your lashes again at home.

Lash Conditioning

Just as you’d condition your hair, your lashes need that tlc to stay lustrous.

We provide a Keratin Lash Serum with all our kits, also including our brow lamination kit - specifically designed for lash lifts, applying it nightly to nourish and fortify your lashes.

Monitoring Lash Health

Keep an eye out for any signs of wear or adverse reactions.

If you notice unusual lash loss or irritation, consult a professional.

Ensure that your aftercare routine evolves if your lashes seem drier or more brittle. Regular inspection helps catch issues early, leading to quicker solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Proper aftercare is crucial to ensure the longevity of your lash lift. This section answers common queries to help maintain your lashes after the procedure.

What is the recommended aftercare routine following a lash lift?

In the first 24-48 hours post-treatment, it’s important to keep your lashes dry and free from makeup.

Refrain from applying any products on your lashes and avoid touching or rubbing your eyes.

How soon after a lash lift can I apply mascara?

You should wait at least 24 hours before applying any mascara or eye makeup on your lashes to allow the lift to set properly.

Is there a specific type of cleanser I should use to maintain my lash lift?

Opt for gentle, oil-free cleansers for the eye area.

Oil-based products can weaken the lift, so it’s advisable to use oil-free makeup removers and cleansers to maintain your lash lift.

What products should be avoided after a lash lift?

Avoid heat, steam, and oil-based products for the first 48 hours.

Also, stay clear of waterproof mascaras, as they require an oil-based remover which can affect the longevity of your lash lift.

Are there any serums or oils that can be safely used to nourish lashes after a lift?

After 24 hours, you can apply a nourishing eyelash serum. Ideally, the serum should be water-based. Ensure the serum is compatible with lash lifts, as some oils can cause the curl to relax prematurely.
