If you’ve tuned into the news lately, it’s been pretty hard to miss Covid-19. Whether it has affected you directly or by proxy it’s an inescapable part of the world right now. Many states are having mandatory closures, which includes many lash artists and spas. If you are a lash artist right now or if you are a lash client, what can you during this mandatory quarantine-period?
Let’s say you or your local lash studio had to temporarily close its doors, and you didn’t get a chance to remove your lashes before not seeing your artist for weeks in some cases.
First of all, inhale, stay calm, exhale. You’ve got this Lashie! Lashes are a way of life for many people and understand that yes, there will be an adjustment period, but it’s okay. Many of us are quarantining and socially distancing ourselves, so don’t be afraid to let those lashes grow out! Never attempt to remove your lashes on your own as this often comes with unintended damage to the natural lashes. You may be tempted to yank out just one or two, but resist the urge and know that soon it will fall out of its own. Do not attempt to cut the lashes either!
Our lashes feel like part of us, and while “breaks,” for lashes, when applied by a skilled and knowledgeable artist, aren’t necessary, a good healthy couple of weeks definitely won’t hurt. In the meantime, try using a good lash serum to ensure your lashes are in tiptop shape when you head back to your artist. While you don’t want to become dependent on a serum, for the couple of week break you may have to take, this can be an amazing opportunity to make sure those lashes are strong, healthy, and ready to take on a glamorous full set.
This is also a great opportunity to stay consistent with your cleansing habits for your lashes, so it stays fresh in your mind and you are able to fall right back into routine when you’re ready again. So sit back, relax, and enjoy being able to rub your eyes, this time will be over before you know it! We’re all in this together. Stay safe and Healthy!
