Maintaining clean lashes is crucial for eye health and to extend the lifespan of both natural eyelashes and lash extensions. Proper lash care prevents eye infections, promotes lash growth, and keeps your eyelashes looking their best.Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to clean your lashes effectively.


Step 1: Remove Makeup Gently
Start by removing any eye makeup. Use a gentle, oil-free makeup remover and a soft cotton pad or swab. Avoid rubbing your lashes harshly as this can cause lash loss and breakage.

Step 2: Cleanse with a Lash Shampoo or Mild Soap
Use a lash shampoo or a mild, tear-free baby shampoo diluted with water. Apply a small amount of shampoo to a clean eyelash brush or your fingertips. Gently massage the lashes in a downward motion, from the base to the tip, to work up a lather. We recommend Revive7 Total Cleansing Foam with only 8 ingredients, pair it with our Revive7 Cleansing Brush; it gently removes eye makeup. This formula was based on Lashforever's Lash Shampoo which Lauren created over 10 years ago - so it has years of testing and success.

Step 3: Rinse Thoroughly
Rinse your lashes with cool or lukewarm water to remove all traces of shampoo. Ensure that no soap residue is left as it can irritate the eyes.

Step 4: Pat Dry Carefully
Pat your lashes dry with a clean, lint-free towel. Avoid rubbing your lashes, as this can damage them.

Step 5: Comb Your Lashes
Once your lashes are dry, use a clean eyelash comb to gently separate and define your lashes. This helps prevent any criss-crossing or tangling.


Step 1: Avoid Oil-Based Products
Oil-based products can weaken the adhesive used for lash extensions, causing them to fall out prematurely. Always opt for oil-free cleansers and makeup removers.

Step 2: Use a Specialized Lash Extension Cleanser
Invest in a cleanser specifically designed for lash extensions. Apply the cleanser using a clean, soft-bristled brush, gently cleaning the lashes and the eyelid.

Step 3: Rinse with Care
Rinse the cleanser off with cool or lukewarm water. Be gentle and try not to disturb the lash extensions.

Step 4: Air Dry or Use a Lash Fan
Allow your lashes to air dry or use a handheld lash fan to speed up the process. Avoid using regular towels as they can snag on your lash extensions.

Step 5: Brush with a Clean Spoolie
Once your lash extensions are dry, gently brush them with a clean spoolie to keep them looking neat and fluffy.

Additional Tips

Clean your lashes daily to remove buildup of natural oils and debris. Avoid traditional waterproof mascara, as it's harder to remove and can lead to lash damage. Tubing mascaras are often easier to remove. Be cautious when using eyelash curlers as they can pull on and damage lashes. Consider applying a lash serum to promote healthy growth and strength. If you experience any irritation or discomfort, discontinue use of products and consult a professional. Maintaining clean lashes is a simple yet important aspect of your beauty routine. Whether you have natural lashes or extensions, taking the time to clean them properly will ensure they remain healthy, beautiful, and in place for as long as possible.
