Lash Care: Maintaining Your Fringe

You just got lash extensions and you love how natural and full they look. You're excited that you no longer have to apply mascara (unless you want to). And you relish the idea of rolling out of bed looking awake and bright-eyed. 

However, lash extensions aren't exactly "set it and forget it."  Here's what you need to know to maintain your fringe and keep them looking lush.

Use a Gentle Lash Cleanser

Keep your lashes clean by using a gentle lash cleanser. We recommend our Fresh Faced Skincare, Gentle Cleanser and Foam pump bottle, $20.

Avoid Oil-Based Products 

Oil can break down the lash bond, so be sure to avoid oil-based products around the eyes.  And since you should be wearing sunscreen year-round, when applying sunscreen, skip spraying your face. Instead use an oil-free sunscreen applied by hand, so you can avoid contact with your lashes.

Steer Clear of Direct Heat

Keep a safe distance from all things hot. During this time of year it may be tempting to cozy up to a toasty fire pit or roast marshmallows over that autumn bonfire, but don't. Direct heat can singe your lashes. Pick a spot farthest away from the flames to protect your fringe.

Book Your Relash ASAP 

Make sure you book your Relash as soon as possible since spots fill up fast. La Belle Studio offers three lash extensions (Classic, Volume, and Mixed Classic and Volume) plus corresponding Relash: 

Classic Relash: Three-Week Relash (60 minutes) $65, or a Four-Week Relash (75 minutes) $85.

Volume Relash: 75 minutes $110, 90 minutes $130.

Mixed Classic and Volume: 60 Minute Relash $85, or 75 Minute Relash $105.

Changing Your Skincare For the Seasons

As the leaves change each season, so must your skincare. Fall is a time for transition, when you restore the damage done from the summer and begin to prep for winter's harsh elements. 

Here's what your skincare regime needs for fall.  

Exfoliation 

If you aren't already, incorporate exfoliation. Getting rid of dead skin cells will reveal the smooth fresh skin underneath and allow for better absorption of skincare products. 

La Belle Studio offers dermaplaning, a form of exfoliation that removes the top layers of dead skin plus peach fuzz. Dermaplaning (with enzyme peel) is $40, or add to any facial service for $25.

La Belle also carries a Pumpkin Enzyme Peel (5%), which accelerates the exfoliation process and leaves the skin looking radiant. (Plus, hello it's PUMPKIN!) Clients can purchase in-person at La Belle Studio and use at home.

Hydration

Dry, papery skin is sad skin. More importantly, it ages you. By adding Vitamin C to your daily routine, you'll provide your skin with a slew of brightening benefits including improved hydration and even skin tone. Use a product like Cellular Repair Concentrate With Vitamin C and apply morning and night. 

Also switch your moisturizer to one that contains more humectants in it, ingredients that boost hydration by binding water to the skin. Some examples of natural humectants are Hyaluronic acid, honey, aloe, Alpha hydroxy acid, algae, and seaweed.

As always, listen to your skin and don't be afraid to ask us questions. Give us a call at 302-656-0555, 302-378-8880 to book your next facial service (and pick our brains).
