Lash Love: Ultimate Guide to Cleaning Eyelashes

Have you ever wondered what the best way is to keep your eyelashes clean and pristine? Well, you’re in the right place. Here are our top pro-tips, tricks, and recommended tools to keep eyelashes perfectly pampered and in tip-top shape.

Why Do You Need To Keep Eyelashes Clean? 

Not only does regular cleaning keep lash extensions looking fabulous, but it also maintains the health of your natural lashes. Neglecting the cleanliness of your lashes can lead to a range of unsavory consequences, such as bacterial buildup, loss of natural lashes, and premature fallout. We recommend cleaning your eyelashes twice a day. 

What is the best thing to clean eyelashes with?

Lash Cleanser: We recommend investing in a high-quality, lash-specific cleanse. If you haven’t tried it yet, Honeybee makes a great foam lash cleanser that comes with a free brush, that we know is worth your time to give a try.

We know it can be tempting and seem like it is cost-effective to create your own lash cleanser, but you might be taking a big risk. Home-made cleansers may not meet hygiene and safety standards, they might be ineffective, or contain ingredients you or your clients are allergic or sensitive to.

Cleansing Brushes: Tiny cleansing brushes or spoolies are your best friend. Use them to apply the lash cleanser and gently scrub your lashes. 

Water: Clean, cool water is essential for rinsing. Make sure to rinse thoroughly to remove any residue from your lashes. Pat them dry with a clean, lint-free cloth. Remember, no rubbing!

Pro Tips for Lash-Cleaning Success

  • Clean your lashes two times a day to keep them fresh and fabulous.
  • Avoid oil-based makeup products, as they can break down the lash adhesive.
  • No tugging. Be gentle when cleansing or brushing to prevent damage to your natural lashes.
  • Remember that happy lashes are well-maintained lashes. So keep up with your cleaning routine to enjoy the best results!
