I'm going to the spa on Monday and wanted to get a facial done. Will a facial ruin my eyelash extensions? Does a facial involve getting your eyes wet? I haven't had a facial in so long, I forgot how they do it.
Well I guess it depends on what type of facial, be sure to call your eyelash lady and see what she says to avoid. Also make the tech who is performing the facial aware of them and the restrictions.
Some facials involve having your eyes covered with a hot cloth, or cucumbers. Some use steam all over the face to open the pores, and that if that is being used, then yes it would effect the lashes. When I had mine on I was told not go in saunas because the steam weakens the glue and releases the hold of the lash.
Just let her know ahead of time, eyelash extensions are so popular I am sure she is familiar with how to care for them during a facial.
Enjoy your facial!
