No matter how you spend your summer, hotter temperatures and more time outside can present some extra challenges when it comes to your beauty routine. No one wants to reapply a full face of makeup or fix streaky mascara when they’re enjoying a backyard BBQ or a day at the pool – and luckily, you don’t have to! NovaLash extensions make it easy to beat the heat while looking and feeling your best – no makeup required.
Why Lash Extensions Are Perfect For Summer
Other beauty rituals can become more complicated during the summer. Hair dye fades with exposure to chlorine or salt water, manicured nails chip, and on the hottest days, getting your makeup set can seem next to impossible. Immediately waterproof, sweatproof, and oil-proof, NovaLash extensions simplify summer beauty unlike any other service. Whether you’re hiking, traveling, swimming, or just enjoying the season, you can go anywhere (and do anything) knowing your eyes will always be made up.
“NovaLash eyelash extensions are an amazing time saving way to enhance your natural beauty in a short amount of time,” says Michelle Williams, 2021 LASHoff Winner. “Having your lash extensions applied will make you look like you have spent time getting ready as you head into the day and throughout the night. Imagine gorgeous dark lash lines against glowing summery skin. You’ll spend the summer feeling confident that you are looking THE best version of yourself!”
Effortless, Waterproof Beauty
NovaLash is unique from many other lash extension brands because the lashes and glue are made to be immediately waterproof. Not only will your extensions withstand the water, but the specialized material will retain its shape and curl when wet. If you’re looking to turn up the drama, lash extensions and NovaLash’s 24-hour cream shadows are a match made in heaven. The shadows are waterproof, cream-based, and moisturizing so you can look and feel your best no matter what you’re doing.
“NovaLash is sweat-proof and smudge-proof in the summer heat. By bringing all the attention to your eyes, NovaLash is the perfect summer accessory,” says Clair Dottin, a 2021 LASHoff winner, Brand Ambassador, and NovaLash trainer based in Barbados.
How To Care For Your EyeLash Extensions In The Summer
NovaLash extensions make it easy to boost your confidence and enjoy the best parts of summer. To make your lash extensions last longer (and protect your natural lashes), there are a few extra precautions you should take during the summer:
Be Cautious Around Extreme Heat
Getting too close to extreme heat isn’t good for your skin, natural lashes, or extensions. If you’ve ever opened an oven and been blasted with a wave of hot air, you know the discomfort first hand! Exposing your face to this kind of extreme heat (whether from an oven, grill, or bonfire) can cause your extensions to lose their curl and flatten out. While you’re enjoying these summer traditions, be mindful of getting your face too close to heat sources. The rule holds true even if you don’t have lash extensions – the last thing you want is to singe or crimp your natural lashes or hair!
Wear Sunglasses AND Sunscreen
Sunscreen is a great tool to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful effects and help prevent age spots and wrinkles. When applying sunscreen to your face, avoid applying it to your eyelid or the delicate skin around it. Sunscreen contains ingredients like glycol, which could affect the longevity of your extensions. Instead, apply the sunscreen around your eye area and wear UV-blocking sunglasses outside. Not only will sunglasses do the job of protecting your eye area from the sun, but you’ll also squint less, which can help you avoid crow’s feet.
Rinse After Swimming
NovaLash extensions are immediately waterproof, meaning you can take as many dips in the hot tub, pool, or beach as your heart desires. If you’re swimming in chlorinated or salt water, it’s a good idea to rinse your lashes after swimming to remove any chemicals from your eye area. Simply splash some water on your face to remove the salt or chlorine and you’re good to go!
