Tips for Fabulous Lash Extensions on Vacation

With the right care, keeping your lash extensions looking their best is easy. Grab your oil-free sunscreen, eyelash-safe makeup remover, a bottle of water and tissues and you’re ready to go! ✈️

To get the most out of your extensions remember these three tips from The Lash Lounge Somerville – Assembly Row:

1. Protect and keep your lash extensions clean

  • If you’re going to be spending more time at the beach once you’re done swimming, pour a little fresh water on your lashes. After leaving the beach be sure to rinse your eyelids and lashes with clean water and a facial cleanser that’s free from oils, or use a makeup remover that’s safe for lash extensions such as our gentle Gel Eye Makeup Remover. This makeup remover is oil-free, alcohol-free and a great all over makeup remover.
  • Pack a soft cotton and lint-free towel when doing physical activities—We know that when you’re on vacation you’re often gone for the day once you leave your room. Having a towel or tissue to keep sweat away while on the go is an easy way to protect your lashes. Whether you’re headed on a hike or a walk through the city on a muggy day, pack a small towel or tissue to keep sweat and oils from your lashes. Body oils can negatively impact your lash adhesive and reduce retention.
  • Wear a contoured eye mask—It can be tricky to avoid sleeping on your lashes, especially when traveling and sleeping in cars or airplanes. To avoid accidentally rubbing your eyes or rolling onto your lashes, choose a sleep mask with contoured eye spaces. This leaves room to keep your eyelashes protected underneath.

2. Keep harmful chemicals and extreme heat away from lash extensions

  • Keep sunscreen away from your lashes—You never want sunscreen in your eyes, but it’s especially important to apply with care when wearing eyelash extensions. Oily sunscreen can harm lash extension adhesive. Use oil-free sunscreen for extra precaution.
  • Avoid extreme heat—Keep a safe distance from any hot grills and campfires and avoid staying near smoke for too long to keep your lashes safe and avoid any burning.

3. Pack our favorite must-have travel beauty products for lash extensions

  • Protect your lashes on the road with Lash Armor—Our lash sealant, Lash Armor, will protect your lashes from water, sweat and humidity. It provides a layer of protection for your extensions AND your natural lashes. It even helps extend the life of your lash extensions.
  • Use our Lash Detox foaming cleanser—At The Lash Lounge Somerville – Assembly Row, we offer both a golden chamomile-infused unscented cleanser and a tea tree cleanser. Both formulas contain antioxidants that boost anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties to keep your lashes healthy.
  • Bring a lash brush—When in doubt, brush it out. Pack a small silicone spoolie to brush the tips of your lashes and avoid anything twisting.
