As the summer approaches, we all want our lashes and brows to look their very best. Whether your client is considering having a Lash Lift & Tint and Brow Tint prior to their summer holiday or they want to improve the condition of their lashes and brows, here we share our expert tips on how to keep your lashes and brows in tip top condition this summer.
Prolonged exposure to the sun can damage your lashes and brows. Apply sunscreen to your face, including your brow area, and wear sunglasses to shield your eyes from harmful UV rays.
Just like the skin on your face, your lashes and brows need moisture to stay healthy. Apply a nourishing lash and brow serum, such as the Elleebana Elleeplex Advanced After Care Formula, which is enriched with proteins, amino acids, Hydrolysed Collagen, Hydrolysed Keratin, Sunflower Oil extract and Vitamin Complex to keep them nourished and hydrated. Elleeplex’s advanced gel formula helps to eliminate frizzy hair, whilst providing softness and shine to lashes. Allow to dry fully, before applying mascara. It can also be used on eyebrows too.
Avoid Excessive Rubbing or Pulling
Be gentle when removing make-up or cleansing your face. Harsh rubbing can lead to breakage and damage to your lashes and brows. Instead, use a gentle touch or opt for a dedicated eye makeup remover with a gentle formula to dissolve and remove products effectively.
Say Goodbye to Waterproof Mascara
Waterproof mascaras are known for their longevity, however, they can be harsh on your lashes. Removing waterproof mascara often requires more rubbing and tugging, which can lead to lash breakage. Instead, opt for a non-waterproof mascara, such as the Elleebana Elleevate Lash Lift Mascara, which contains a naturally occurring Keratin complex, essential amino acids Arginine and Biotin to protect, strengthen and promote healthy lash growth.
Use a Lash and Brow Brush
Regularly brushing your lashes and brows helps to distribute natural oils and keeps them looking neat and tidy. For brows, use a clean spoolie brush, such as the B’KATE Spoolie Angled Brush, and for lashes use a specialist lash brush to comb them in the desired direction.
Avoid Excessive Heat
High heat can weaken your lashes and brows. Avoid using heated eyelash curlers and be cautious when using heated styling tools near your eyebrows.
Have a Break from Make-Up
Give your lashes and brows some time off from make-up, this break allows them to breathe and prevents any potential product buildup. Consider using a nourishing brow oil during this makeup-free time, such as the B’KATE Castor Roll On Brow Oil to provide extra care and encourage their growth.
