Undoubtedly the most popular of the facials. The PORE Facial includes all the essentials of a classic facial with an emphasis on clearing congested skin by extracting blackheads, milia, and other skin blemishes.
Not right after but 48 hours after, yes. However, we recommend applying extra moisture to the lashes when swimming, due to the dehydrating effects of chlorine. That recommendation also applies to your hair and eyebrows. Lash serums or regular eye cream are great for added moisture around the eyes.
Chlorine can have a positive effect or negative effect. Trusted pools where chemical levels are balanced can have positive effects. For example, it can actually help with eczema as long as the person is properly treating their skin afterward.
Chlorine has a very drying effect on the skin and hair because of its pH level. Chlorine is very alkaline and our skin and hair are naturally acidic. As a result, chlorine throws off your pH balance. In order to recalibrate, use ph-balanced products (shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer, cleanser, toners).
Can you wear mascara after your Lash Lift?
Yes, as long as you are following the 48-hour post care rule of no makeup and no soaking, you can apply mascara and are free to apply it as often as you’d like. Keep in mind that you don’t want to over-cleanse. When removing the mascara, avoid using alcohol and oil-based makeup removers.
How do you maintain a lash lift?
Maintain your lash lift by following the recommended aftercare. Avoid water, steam, makeup for the first 48 hours. After that, try to use mild cleansers around the eyes. Avoid strong astringents or alcohol-based and oil-based eye makeup removers.
What should I put on my lashes after a lash lift?
Proper Lash Lift aftercare will help maximize the longevity of your lift. You can carefully add a little moisturizer to the lashes using a spoolie brush. Lash serums work as well.

Lash lifts are a great alternative to lash extensions. This type of lash enhancement gives the lashes a natural appearance.
When it comes to the preservation of the integrity of the hair, lash lifts are gentler on the lashes. There are a couple of reasons for this. First, the lift is not an “additive” service- it works with your natural lashes. As a result, it does not require the lashes to carry the excess weight of artificial lashes constantly.
Secondly, extensions require each lash be connected to an artificial lash with adhesive 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With the lift, you process one time and then work on repair.
Less frequent required visits is another benefit of the lift. Someone who can’t devote time every 2-3 weeks to fills would prefer the lift because you are looking at 6-10 weeks before you need another lift (depending on your natural lashes). In addition, there is less in-service time during the appointment in comparison to extensions.
Also, the lash lift is a very low-maintenance service. You’re looking at 48 hours post-treatment where you have to be cautious, as opposed to the daily care required with lash extensions.
There are many reasons why the lash lift is a good alternative to extensions.
Lash Lifts sound great! Why would anyone prefer extensions?
It all comes down to personal preference. While some people are looking for a fresh-faced appearance, others are looking for a dramatic finish.
Also, extensions provide additional length, whereas the lift provides the appearance of additional length. Extensions are good for people that can only achieve a certain length and they want more.
Do Lash Lifts damage the eyelashes?
Much like any other chemical processing service, its going to alter the natural state of the hair. Therefore, it does have an effect on the existing hair strand. It may make them dryer than usual, and in some cases (depending on the health of the lash before the treatment) it may cause some brittleness.
Pretreat to Prevent
These things are preventable by pretreating the lashes with a lash serum or moisturizer. Pretreating helps to condition the lashes in preparation for the chemical process. For example, when getting your hair done, its always best to condition and mask prior to your hair colouring service. You would take a similar approach with the lashes.
After you get your hair processed, you usually start using more conditioner or hair masks in an effort to repair. You wanna do the same for your lashes. Lash conditIoner will not only bring you back to par, but take it further by adding conditioner and enhancers that were not there before. It will replenish what you lost but also add.
