If we ask you to choose between beauty and exercise, you might not be able to decide. In today’s modern world of natural beauty trends, we can’t blame you if exercise has become an essential part of your life.

We get it—exercising does not only make you look good, but it makes you feel good from the inside out. In addition to feeling glam, you also now have the opportunity to complement your flawless appearance with eyelash extensions.

Unfortunately, beauty has a price tag—eyelashes don't come cheap, and they take quite the maintenance as well. Naturally, the last thing you want to do is ruin them through excessive movements and intense exercise.

Although you can use them through rigorous activities, cooking, sleeping, and swimming, you must know that certain elements may cause them to deteriorate quickly. Read on as we discuss tips to exercise with eyelash extensions!

Tip #1: Wait and Be Patient

Give yourself a total of 24 hours before wetting your new set of eyelashes! Every lash expert will tell you that this time is necessary for the lash glue to dry entirely.

On the other hand, you can still do some yoga since it doesn’t cause too much sweat. Sweat is made up of water, salts, and oils that can affect the curing of your lash extensions. Thus, you must avoid high-intensity exercises to keep your extensions intact. If you don’t comply with this tip, you could risk your lashes falling off prematurely.

Tip #2: Set a Gym Ritual

Applying greasy lotions and sunscreens before a workout is not a good idea. Sweating during your exercise will let these creams drip down the brow and into the lashes, causing clumping and premature deterioration. Instead, 30 minutes before your workout, seal your lashes with a sealer to keep them from sliding off.

Tip #3: Don’t Rub Your Eyes

Of course, sweating on the face is normal during workouts, and sometimes, we mindlessly wipe our faces with towels. While this is common practice, be careful about rubbing too hard! Excessive rubbing may cause lash extensions to snag and fall out.

Tip #4: Steer Clear of Hot or Humid

Thermal breakdown occurs in hot environments and may affect the adhesiveness of your lash glue. An excellent example of this is engaging in hot yoga or hot showers, both of which loosen the glue bond and damage eyelash extensions. To avoid this, try to keep showers to a lower temperature.

Tip #5: Give Them a Good Wash

Don't forget to clean up after yourself, no matter what workout you do. Don’t wait for any because the more sweat and oil sit on your lashes, the more they will be damaged. More importantly, use a lash-extension-friendly cleanser to keep your extensions clean and safe. After doing so, detangle with a mascara wand to keep the shape and volume of your lash extensions.


What we absolutely adore about lash extensions is that they keep us looking and feeling glam effortlessly! Now, if you follow these tips, you’ll be able to save your lash extensions healthy—even as you keep up with your fitness routine. Simply be mindful of your lashes and maintain them regularly, and soon, you’ll discover that nothing can keep you from looking attractive and healthy!
