We choose the caring mascara
The new natural, and even organic, mascara contains ingredients that reduce the weakening of eyelashes. Exit paraffin, synthetic polymers and silicone. It is the moisturizing glycerin or waxes and nourishing vegetable oils that ensure smoothness and softness with the benefits of skin care. The best : Choose a mascara formula that contains natural lipids, such as fortifying castor oil, sweet almond oil, or shea butter. Some references contain the antioxidant vitamin E, the pro-growth vitamin B6 or biotin, the anti-hair loss peptides.
Gently remove eye make-up
Makeup removal is the number one enemy of eyelashes. As evidence of the number of eyelashes that remained on the cotton .. the right gesture? Massage makeup remover oil into fingertips to dissolve makeup and then rinse with lukewarm water, or soak two cotton pads in the biphasic solution, and let sit for 5 seconds before gently pulling it out and up. Care must be taken to remove dust and particles that have accumulated near the eyelashes because this is exactly what suffocates the bulb and makes the hair softer and more brittle.

The fringe lacks thickness, the eyelashes fall out a lot … Now it’s time to adopt a special treatment for eyelashes based on amino acids that will re-establish the hair structure. It works if you’re diligent: one application morning and evening for three months. Not more than 3 times a year, with the risk of accustoming the eyelashes to this re-enhancing treatment.
Between two eyelash extensions, treat yourself to a deep salon treatment
Fans of eyelash extensions know that once the wahoo effect wears off, eyelashes weaken considerably. Even worse, we sometimes notice eyelash lice infestation at the root. To avoid this, removal should be done by an expert in the cabin to remove any glue residue and thoroughly clean the lash line. Then we apply a nourishing and moisturizing treatment to revive growth.
