Petroleum jelly is a versatile product that can be used for many different purposes, from treating wounds to moisturizing dry skin and even chapped lips. However, it is not suitable for removing eyelash extensions. If you are unhappy with your eyelash extensions or they are causing irritation, you can remove them yourself or have them professionally removed. To remove the extensions yourself, start by applying a lubricant such as petroleum jelly around the lash line.
Gently pass the jelly through the lashes to loosen the adhesive and the extensions will come off. Be sure to thoroughly wipe off any remaining glue when you are finished. Oil-based makeup removers can also be used to help remove glue for eyelash extensions and release natural lashes. If you have a professional eyelash extension remover, you can use it to remove the extensions at home.
When removing eyelash extensions, it is important to take care not to pull on your natural lashes. This can cause pain and damage to your lashes. If you are uncomfortable with the length or thickness of your eyelash extensions, it is best to have them professionally removed. Professional beauticians have access to creams and gels that can help remove glue for eyelash extensions without causing any pain or damage.
