Lash serums can be an effective way to improve the length and fullness of eyelashes. However, stopping use of these specialized serums may lead to lighter and thinner lashes, due to a decrease in nutrients and moisture needed for lash health. Knowing what happens when you stop using a lash serum and how to take care of your lashes is essential for beautiful results.
Cleanse the Skin Around Your Eyes Carefully Every Day.
Keeping the skin around your eyes clean is essential when you stop using a lash serum. When washing your face, use a gentle cleanser that won’t clog pores or cause further dryness to the delicate skin around your eyes. Always pat, rather than rub, the area around your eyes dry and use mineral-based makeup and skincare products that are free of harsh chemicals. For extra hydration, apply a nourishing eye cream every night.
Use Gentle Pressure When Washing Your Face.
Washing your face too vigorously or using too much pressure can cause the delicate skin around your eyes to become dry and irritated. When washing your face, use only lukewarm water and very gentle pressure in order to avoid any further damage. It’s also important to make sure you’re using a facial cleanser that is specifically designed for the sensitive areas of the face, such as near your eyes.
Supplement Lengthening with Curling to Make Lashes Look Fuller and Longer.
Supplementing lash lengthening with a curler can also help make lashes look fuller and longer. Start by placing the curler at the base of your lashes and apply light pressure for a few seconds, then slowly move the curler up to create a curved C-shape. This will help give your lashes more volume and make them appear thicker. For extra volume, use an eyelash comb once you’re finished curling to separate any clumps or stray hairs.
