With all the swimming, sweating, and sunscreen that come along with it, summer is the perfect time to take a break from high-maintenance lash extensions and eye makeup. Seize the moment to set your lashes and brows free! But first, make sure they’re in good shape.
THE SUN, AND OTHER SOURCES OF DAMAGE
The summer sun can be relentless, and not just on the beach. Did you know the sun’s UV rays can cause free radical damage to your skin, hair, and even lashes and brows? Even just a few minutes of daily exposure adds up over the years, contributing to visible signs of ageing like fine lines and dry, brittle, lacklustre lashes and brows.
A beauty routine that both prevents and repairs the look of damage is your best defence. Your regime should include daily SPF for your skin, of course, plus nourishing products that condition and strengthen your lashes and brows.
Lashes and brows that have been even more exposed to damage – for example, from tinting, perms, or even sleeping in makeup – may need additional TLC to recover their strength and flexibility.
LASH AND BROW SAVING TIPS FOR SUMMER
Make this summer your lashes’ and brows’ season to shine with these damage-minimising tips:
Embrace a low-maintenance look. Some makeup products (especially waterproof formulas) can be drying, so consider giving your lashes and brows a well-deserved break. A lash curler and tweezers might be all you need to create a naturally beautiful, makeup-free look for summer.
Use a mask twice a week. Here’s the key to exquisite lashes and brows this summer: Lash & Brow Masque Ultra-Reparative Treatment. A true innovation in lash and brow care, this mask is in a class of its own. It helps to repair damaged, compromised hair in just 15 minutes – and in a 3-week study of 75 consumers, 80 percent said their lashes and brows were more hydrated after just one use. The secret is in the formula, powered by encapsulating tube technology that wraps each hair in nourishing ingredients – like the Tri-Flora Complex. This botanical blend of ginseng, gleditsia, and white nettle fortifies hair to restore strength and bring back natural shine and vitality. With regular use, you’ll notice your lashes and brows look healthier, softer, shinier, and more flexible. Who needs makeup when your natural lashes and brows are this pampered? Use the mask after a beach day, 24 hours after a professional lash or brow service, or anytime you feel like indulging in a spa night at home.
Condition lashes and brows daily. While a mask can make a noticeable difference in the look of your lashes and brows, daily maintenance is equally important. A once-a-day swipe of RevitaLash® Advanced on your lashes and a few short strokes of RevitaBrow® Advanced on your brows can keep you looking refreshed all summer long.
