Clean Your False Lashes2018-06-27
Are you keeping your false lashes clean? We know, at the end of a long day adding yet another step to our beauty regime can feel like a chore. But you’ll thank us when your false lash stash is still going strong months into wearing them.
Eyelashes are similar to the hairs on the rest of our body. But while there is plenty of in-depth scientific knowledge about the locks that grace our heads and other forms of body hair.The eyelash hair follicle remains mysterious.
That’s right, keeping your falsies sanitized and clean can extend the life of your favorite set. So you can wear them again and again like new. Built up mascara and glue can both dry out real hair lash sets, as well as warp artificial fibers. Plus, worn lashes can carry bacteria that could be harmful to eyes with extended use. There are a few ways to clean a false set, and we promise they’re quick and easy. Your falsie collection will thank you.
Peel away the glue
Glue build-up can warp the shape of the eyelash band over time, causing lashes to look uneven. Plus, built up glue is a bacteria trap. Use tweezers to carefully peel away glue bits on the backs of your lashes without tearing out lash hairs in the process.
Rinse in warm water
Fill a clean sink with a small amount of warm water and drop lashes in for about 30 seconds to loosen any mascara or other potential makeup residue. Hot water is a good choice for especially stubborn makeup—but only for artificial false lashes fibers, as human hair or fur lashes can permanently lose their curl in the heat.
