Removing eyelash extensions is one of the most dreaded when it comes to taking off your makeup. Mainly because you just love how they look on you and don’t want to get rid of them or they are outright painful! As much as we all love flaunting our long falsies, we despise taking them off ourselves.
Going to a professional makeup artist is definitely the best route because they undoubtedly do it with ease with their professional tools and adhesive removers or solutions which are available only in salons.
Having said that, there are few pro tips to remove lashes at home with ease. With gazillion guides telling you how to wear them, here’s how you can remove them safely and very very carefully without causing damage to your natural lashes.
Don’t pull your falsies!
Remember, if you yank or pull your extensions you will cause a lot of damage to your natural lashes. As the adhesive used for lashes are strong, yanking might break the bulb of the lash due to which your lash may not grow back or they just take a lot of time to grow back. Imagine having gaps in between your lashes. Nightmare, right?
Be gentle! Try not putting too much pressure or rubbing vigorously.
Castor oil is the saviour:
According to lash experts, the safest way is to saturate them in oil. The oil helps in breaking down the bond of the adhesive on the lashes. All you have to do is, take a tiny amount of castor oil and massage your lashes with your fingers before you call it a day and wake up to remove the falsies easily. This could be time-consuming as it is a natural method to do it.
Mascara to the rescue:
It’s true! Mascara can help you take off your falsies. The oil in mascara will break down the adhesive and your extensions will come off easily from your natural lashes.
The minute they loosen up use a makeup remover to rub the lashes gently.
Steamy shower is bliss even for extensions
We absolutely love steamy showers after a long day and so do your falsies. Warm water and humidity will help break down the adhesive bond due to which your lashes will come off easily making them brittle than usual. So maybe when you remove your makeup take a steamy, hot shower and watch your extensions loosen up a little.
