Prep and Aftercare.
💥Avoid wearing eye makeup to you eyelash appointment. (Mascara, Eyeliner and other eye makeup).
💥Keep your lashes dry for at least 24 Hours (38 hours is ideal)
💥No swimming, steam rooms, saunas, hot showers or facial for 48 hours after your treatment
💥Use only water based makeup remover and Cleansers. Oily/cream based products will shorten the life of your Eyelash Extensions
💥An Eyelash Extension approved foaming cleanser MUST be used on your lashes daily to help prevent eye and lid infection. We recommend Lash Collection Lash & Brow Cleanser as it is specifically formulated to be safely used on eyelash extensions, Which Hazel is an alternative.
💥Regular cleansing will keep your lashes healthy, your Eyelash Extensions lasting longer and will help prevent a build-up of natural oils, dust and make up.
💥Avoid rinsing your face directly under the shower steam, instead bring the tepid water up to your face using your hands
💥Avoid exfoliating around the eye area
💥No waterproof mascara.
💥No eyelash curlers are to be used while wearing Eyelashes Extensions
💥Avoid rubbing, touching and playing with your Eyelash Extensions. This can be addictive, so just don’t even go there!
💥Use a tissue to blot dry lashes after washing your face and brush with your spoolie if needed
💥Let your Lash Stylist know immediately if you experience any irritation or discomfort
Prep & Aftercare for Spray Tans
💥Shower with a moisturising body wash before the spray tanning procedure. Use a body wash with a pH balance and avoid soap at all costs.
💥Exfoliation is vital before the spray tanning procedure. Scrubbing will cleanse the skin and slough off dry and dead skin cells. After exfoliating, a smooth texture is exposed and the outer most cells of the skin will be prepared to receive the spray tan solution evenly. Do not use an oil-based exfoliator as the oil left on the skin may act as barrier and hinder the results.
💥Spray tan preparation also includes not using any products like deodorants, perfumes, lotions, moisturisers, or make-up before the session. Applying these products to the skin can create unwanted results after you have been spray tanned
Shave or wax a day before the spray tanning procedure. Your pores should be closed during the procedure so that you don’t obtain a spotty tan.
💥Let the spray tan solution dry before wearing your clothes. Wait for at least 15 minutes before dressing up. Wear dark and loose clothes after you have been spray tanned to avoid any residue smudges.
💥If you want to extend the life of your tan, avoid water, saunas, spas, physical exercise, swimming, and tight or rough material clothing. All these fade the tan unevenly. Sweating also leads to streaks so avoid physical and strenuous activities.
Do not use soap or scrubs while showering after you have been spray tanned. These exfoliate the skin and fade the colour of your tan.
💥Avoid showering with extremely hot water as this can easily irritate the skin.
💥Avoid shaving or waxing after the spray tan session. These remove the hair along with the upper surface of the skin which has just been spray tanned.
💥Do not rub; instead pat dry yourself after showering. Rubbing will only create an exfoliating effect that will remove the dead skin cells from your body. These dead skin cells have the tanning colour locked on them so you don’t want to get rid of them anytime soon!
💥After drying off, moisturise. This is vital for spray tan preparation. Apply a hydrating cream so that your spray tan remains intact. When your skin is hydrated and smooth, the tanned cells will flake off. Remember to moisturise at least twice a day for optimum results!
