Lash Lift & Tint, Eyebrow & Gel Nail Aftercare

Beauty treatment aftercare advice

Lash Lift & Tint 

  • Be kind and gentle with your eye lashes; no rubbing.
  • Do not get your eye lashes wet for the first 24 hours.
  • Do not use harsh products on your eyes/lashes.
  • No heat treatments for 24 hours.
  • No eye make up for 24 hours.
  • Do not use eyelash curlers.
  • Avoid waterproof mascara’s.
  • Swimming should be avoided for at least 24hrs.
  • No other facial beauty treatments for 24hrs.
  • Apply coconut oil or a eyelash serum to lashes at bedtime to moisturise and condition them.
  • Remember, the lash lift procedure is similar to a hair perm, and as such the hair must be kept well nourished and treated delicately to avoid breakage/weakening.

Eyebrow Treatments ( Eyelash & Eyebrow tinting, Shaping & Maintaining)

  • No heat treatments for 24 hours ie: sauna, sunbeds or swimming.
  • Avoid eye make up for 12 hours.
  • If redness/irritation occurs, apply a damp cotton wool compress.
  • Effects will diminish in 4/6 weeks as hair grows out.
  • Strong sunlight will fade the tint.
  • Apply coconut oil or a eyelash serum to lashes at bedtime to moisturise and condition them.

Gel Nails

  • Always use gloves when washing up, cleaning or gardening.
  • Use cuticle oil every night just before going to bed.
  • Moisturise your hands every time after washing hands.
  • Never use your nails as tools.
  • Use non-acetone nail polish remover.
  • Do not pick off the Gel as this will cause damage to the nail plate.
  • If lifting can be seen please contact me as water and dirt can get under and cause an infection.
  • It is recommended that maintenance appointments should be booked every 2-3weeks.
  • Do not try to do home nail repairs or remove Gel yourself.
  • Please wash hands thoroughly after using fake tan/hair colour as these may discolour nails.
  • If you are on holiday please be careful when using sun tan oils or insect repellent solutions as many of these products contain DEET which will cause damage to the Gel.
  • If any adverse reaction occurs please contact your GP.

Acrylic Nails

  • Allow yourself a few days to become accustomed to your new nails. You may find it difficult doing up buttons, opening car doors, picking up coins from the floor etc for the first few days but eventually you will get into the habit of using your hands in a different way and your nails will start feeling more natural.
  • Have regular maintenance services. They are required every 2-3 weeks, depending on the nail growth. These services will return your nails to the pristine condition they were in, looking healthy and beautiful. Leaving more than the recommended time will result in breakages and lifting of the nail enhancements which may cause problems to the natural nails.
  • Repetitive or severe pressure on the nail enhancements will lead to cracks that result in full blown breaks. Treat your nails as JEWELS NOT TOOLS.
  • Do not bite, pick or file your enhancements. This can cause them to lift, become weak and break, and possibly cause damage and thinning to your natural nails.
  • If the nail enhancements appear to be lifting from the nail plate, contact me and make arrangements for a revisit as soon as possible to prevent bacterial infections. Do not be tempted to pull off the lifted part as this will cause nail distress and weaken your natural nail.
  • Sun tan creams, tinted lotions and coloured hair products can all dis-colour your nail enhancements. To protect your nails from becoming dis-coloured, wash your hands thoroughly or wear gloves.
  • Always wear rubber gloves when performing normal household tasks such as washing up, using cleaning products especially bleach, and gardening as the chemicals found in these cleaning and gardening products can affect your nail enhancements and may result being harmful to your natural nails and also to the skin of your hands.
  • If removing nail polish, always use an Acetone Free nail polish remover. Acetone causes nail enhancements to weaken.
  • If applying nail polish, always apply a base coat prior to applying nail polish to prevent the nail enhancements from yellowing and finish off with a UV shield top coat to protect the nail polish from chipping and peeling.
  • To prevent nail art from chipping and peeling, apply a UV Shield top coat every other day.
  • Do not push back the cuticles as this will enhance the gap between the natural nails and the nail enhancements and maintenance will be required more frequently.
  • Invest in a good hand cream to keep the skin of your hands looking young, and feeling soft and smooth.
  • MOST IMPORTANT, do not try to remove the nail enhancements yourself as you will cause severe damage to your natural nails. ALWAYS have them professionally removed.
