With summer just around the corner, we wanted to take a couple of moments to share some great tips to tell your clients on things to avoid when it comes to summer care.
CLEAN LASHES AFTER EXERCISING
Sweat and oils not only build up on your face causing acne, but it breeds bacteria and can damage the bonds of your extensions. Remind your clients that after they hit the gym and crush their workout, make sure they know the importance of cleaning and rinsing away the sweat and oils that have accumulated on their eyelids.
CLEAN LASHES AFTER THE POOL
Chlorine can be really harsh and drying. Remind your clients that after they are done swimming and floating, they need to clean their lashes as soon as possible. Chlorine can cause lashes to become brittle and weaken their adhesive bonds.
AVOID SMOKE AND FLAMES
Summer is the time for barbecues and bonfires. Gathering around a fire with friends and family under the stars is a timeless summer tradition. As you’re talking to your clients about their summer plans, remind them that open flames can disperse soot and ash that can buildup on their lashes and even can cause their eyes to water. To avoid damaging their beautiful summer lashes, remind them to clean their lashes as soon as they can.
AVOID OIL CLEANERS
Makeup, sweat, buildup, and even dead skin cells can be harmful to your lash extensions. As we know, oil based products will also cause your lashes to come loose before your fill. So it’s always a good reminder to ask your first time clients what type of facial cleansers they use to avoid any potential issues.
AVOID LONG PERIODS OF BEING IN THE HEAT
If laying all day in the sun is one of your clients favorite summer activities, it might be worth having a conversation about adjusting their lash length. Scaling back in length and diameter can help keep lashes looking better, longer. Especially if they spend long periods of time in the heat or sun.
DON’T SKIP FILL APPOINTMENTS
It’s summer, we’re all a little busier and there are a lot of things to see and do, friends to meet, and memories to make. Be diligent about rebooking your clients before they leave for their next fill appointment. If they do get caught and won’t be able to make an appointment, recommend they at least do a lash lift. This will help avoid that awkward growth phase between appointments.
With proper care and maintenance your clients eyelashes will remain plush and full all summer long! Do you have any additional tips? Share them with us, tag @honeybee_lash_co on Instagram.
