As the scorching summer heat continues to take its toll, we've keenly noticed a rise in lash shedding. What does this mean for lash extension lovers? The unprecedented rise in temperature and humidity has lead to increased shedding and shorter lash extension retention periods. In this article, we will explore the impact of summer heat on lash extensions and provide helpful tips to increase your lash retention and encourage natural lash growth!
Heat + Humidity = Increased Lash Fall
The high temperatures and humidity we've been experiencing can affect the durability and lifespan of lash extensions. Excessive sweating, oil production, and exposure to chlorine or saltwater can weaken the bond between the natural lash and the extension adhesive, leading to premature shedding. Moreover, prolonged exposure to UV rays can cause the extensions to become dry, brittle, and prone to breakage. So, how can we combat premature shedding and safeguard our natural lashes during the summer heat? The lash pros at Avari Beauty have some essential tips to help you rock gorgeous lashes all season long!
Follow Lash Aftercare Advice
Maintaining a strict aftercare routine is essential for preventing premature shedding of lash extensions and protecting the health of natural lashes. We recommend gentle cleansing of the lashes twice a day to remove oil, sweat, and debris. This helps to preserve the adhesive bond and prevent bacterial buildup. To ensure the integrity of your lash adhesive, only use a lash-safe cleanser explicitly designed for lash extensions, such as the Avari Beauty All-In-One Bamboo Charcoal Cleanser.
In addition, if you're participating in water activities, such as swimming, consider protecting your lash extensions by wearing goggles or utilizing a waterproof sealant, such as the Avari Beauty Coating Sealant. This innovative lash treatment creates a protective layer over your lash extensions to keep them safe from sweat, makeup, oil buildup, and more!
Protect Your Natural Lashes
Excessive UV exposure and hot summer weather can wreak havoc on our natural lashes, as well as lash extensions and lash lifts! The harmful effects of UV rays can lead to dryness, brittleness, and breakage, compromising the overall health and appearance of lashes. It is crucial to take proactive measures to protect our lashes during this season and ensure their longevity. Alongside regular cleansing, incorporating Revitalash Eyelash Growing Serum into your lash care routine becomes even more essential during the hot summer months. The serum's advanced technology boasts proprietary, scientifically advanced technology that strengthens lashes and safeguards against breakage, while simultaneously enhancing flexibility and shine. The result is a remarkable transformation, with eyelashes that appear dramatically more voluminous and beautiful. Here at Avari Beauty, we love that Revitalash is entirely safe to use with eyelash extensions, making it ultra-effective without compromising lash integrity. Plus, Revitalash's formula is vegan-friendly and cruelty-free, so you can feel good about your ethical beauty choice!
Managing Lash Shedding During the Summer Heat
The summer heat presents unique challenges for lash extension wearers, with increased shedding and shorter retention periods being common concerns. While it may be impossible to prevent lash shedding completely (it is completely natural and unavoidable!), prioritizing lash hygiene and utilizing products such as the Avari Beauty Coating Sealant and Revitalash's Eyelash Growing Serum can help combat these issues and extend the lifespan of your lash extensions. By protecting against UV exposure, avoiding excessive heat, and providing the necessary nourishment, you can enjoy healthy, luscious lashes throughout the summer months—no stress!
