- Do not get lashes wet for 24 -36 hours after application. Avoid steam rooms / saunas.

- Dry and separate lashes after showering using a hair dryer on low setting. Hold the dryer at a 45 degree angle at least 20 centimeters below your face. Move the dryer from left to right to dry.
- Wash and clean your lashes 2 to 3 times per week with an oil free foaming cleanser (Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser, Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser, Aveeno)
- Active Naturals Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser ) to prevent protein built up from makeup, sleep, dust and the bodies natural oils. NOTE: the buildup of protein can cause infections.
