Summer Tips and Tricks for Healthy Lashes

Summer Tips and Tricks for Healthy Lashes

As the temperature rises, it’s important to adjust our beauty routines to protect our delicate lashes from the harsh elements.  Whether you’re lounging at the pool or heading to a sunny beach, follow these essential lash care tips to ensure your lashes stay healthy, voluminous, and stunning throughout the summer season! 

1. Shield your lashes from the sun
Just like your skin, our eyelashes can also suffer from the damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays.  To protect your lashes, consider wearing a wide-brimmed hat or sunglasses to shield them from direct sunlight.
2. Stay Hydrated
Summer heat can cause dehydration, which can lead to brittle lashes.  Ensure you stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day.  Well-hydrated lashes are more likely to be flexible and less prone to breakage.

3. Avoid waterproof mascara
While waterproof mascara might seem like a good idea for pool days or beach vacations, it can be harsh on your lashes.  Waterproof formulas are notoriously difficult to remove, often requiring excessive rubbing and pulling that can weaken and damage your lashes.  Lash Star Beauty’s Full Control Mascara is gentle on the lashes as it contains conditioning ingredients as well as provides longevity without compromising your lash health.

4. Moisturize your lashes
Just like the rest of your body, our lashes benefit from moisturization.  Consider using an eyelash conditioner or a nourishing oil, such as castor or argan oil, to keep lashes hydrated and promote their overall health.  Apply a small amount to your lashes using our Lash Star Beauty’s Lash Styler brush or a cotton swab before bed time.

5. Give your lashes a break
During the summer, give your lashes a breather from the heavy makeup.  Embrace the natural look and let your lashes enjoy some makeup-free days.  If you can’t resist a touch of mascara.  Lash Star Beauty’s Full Control Mascara has a lightweight formula to avoid weighing down your lashes.

6. Protect your lashes while swimming
Chlorine and saltwater can be drying and damaging to your lashes.  Before taking a dip, consider coating your lashes with a layer of clear mascara or a lash sealant to create a barrier against these elements.  Once you’re done swimming, rinse your lashes gently with cool water to remove any chemicals or salt residue. 

Summer is a time to embrace the outdoors and enjoy the warmth, but it’s essential to care for your eyelashes amidst the fun.  By following these summer lash care tips, you can ensure that your lashes remain healthy, voluminous, and beautiful all season long.  So, go ahead, soak up the sun, and flutter those lashes with confidence!
