Winter is the time when we get to have some fun with family and friends. Yet if you have recently gone for a lash lift treatment you will have to take some precautions to keep your lashes beautiful and healthy when enjoying winter activities. This is especially important if you were planning to go on a snowy winter or ski trip. That is because the harsh elements of cold weather can ruin your newly curled beautiful lashes. So follow the tips below for some added lash lift care to help you enjoy winter with friends and family while still keeping your lashes looking stunning.
Say No to Oil-Based Eye Make-Up
The most amazing thing about lash lifts is that you can apply any preferred eye makeup after the initial 24 to 48 hours. However, it is recommended to avoid all kinds of oil-based eye makeup in winter. Some of the oil-based eye products, cream-based eyeliners, and waterproof mascaras can be hard to clean off, particularly after a day out in the cold weather. This may irritate your eyelashes when you remove the makeup. Therefore, it will be better to stick with liquid eyeliner and oil-free keratin mascara. These eye makeup products are easier to remove and should not hurt your lashes with the proper makeup removing cleansers.
Remember to Cleanse and Moisturize
Winter activities expose you to snow and cold winds. Prolonged exposure to such cold elements can cause irritation to both your eyes and eyelashes, so you will need to cleanse and moisturize your face with a good-quality cleanser every day. This will also help to make sure that no debris or grime sits on your beautifully curved lashes. Apart from daily cleansing, you should also moisturize more than your face but your lashes as well with a good eyelash growth serum. This will ensure that your skin gets all the vital vitamins to stay hydrated in winter and that your lashes always remain happy, healthy, and beautiful.
Take Extra Care When Wearing Goggles
It is a given that you’re going to need to put on ski goggles to enjoy your day on the mountain slopes to the fullest especially if you’re out skiing or snowboarding with friends and family. But you will need to be extra careful when using ski goggles right after you’ve gone in for a lash lift treatment. Apart from making sure that the ski goggles fit properly to keep your eyes protected you should also ensure that they’re roomy enough that they do not squish or interfere with your perfectly curved lashes by any means. With that in mind, it will be wiser to go with ski goggles that have a larger frame to keep your eyes as well as your lashes well protected.
