But henceforth you’ll have to take care of those little things and keep them clean. Here are a few tips about how to clean your lash extensions.

No Rubbing or Scrubbing

First thing you’ll have to remember is that rubbing or scrubbing in and near the eye area is a strict no-no as it can harm the delicate skin around the eyes, leading to irritation and premature aging.

Even when you use a cotton ball or eye makeup remover, you have to rub the eyes a lot. Moreover, these items don’t remove the makeup completely.

If after finishing your cleansing routine, you find black spots on your towel, it means that your mascara has not totally been removed.

Beware of Microbes

You should also remember that your eyelashes (natural or extensions) accumulate a huge amount of bacteria, because of the humid and warm environment of your eye itself.

Even your hands carry bacteria and add them to the eye area whenever you touch it several times in a day, whether to scratch an itch or just mess with the lashes.
