How to remove eyelash extensions at home

Eyelash extensions should only be removed by a trained professional, as improper removal can damage your natural lashes or cause irritation to your eyes. If you want to remove your lash extensions, it is recommended that you visit a salon or spa that offers lash extension services.

If you still want to try removing your lash extensions at home, here are a few steps you can follow:

  1. Gather your materials: You will need an oil-based lash remover, cotton balls, a small bowl, and a pair of tweezers.

  2. Soak a cotton ball in oil-based makeup remover: Dip a cotton ball in oil-based makeup remover and gently dab it onto your lash line, being careful not to get the remover in your eyes.

  3. Wait a few minutes: Allow the makeup remover to sit on your lashes for a few minutes to soften the adhesive.

  4. Use the tweezers to gently remove the extensions: Starting at the outer corner of your eye, use the tweezers to gently pull the extensions off, working your way inward. Be careful not to pull too hard, as this could damage your natural lashes.

  5. Repeat until all the extensions are removed: Continue removing the extensions until they are all gone.

  6. Cleanse your lashes: Once all the extensions are removed, use a gentle cleanser to remove any remaining makeup remover or adhesive from your lashes.

It is important to be gentle and patient when removing lash extensions at home, as improper removal can damage your natural lashes. If you are not comfortable removing the extensions yourself, it is best to visit a salon or spa where a trained professional can remove them safely.
