You’re all ready to go to bed, but before you can get into your PJs, you remember that you’ve applied an eyelash growth serum to your lashes. You’re not really in the mood to wash your face again. You’re wondering, do you have to wash off lash serum before going to bed?
You don’t need to wash off your lashes once a lash serum is applied. In fact, it’s actually better if you don’t because it allows the serum to work its magic overnight.
In this article, I’ll cover the main reasons you don’t need to wash off lash serum and how it can benefit your lashes.
Reason #1: Washing Your Face Can Strip Away the Serum
If you wash your face after applying lash serum, you’re essentially washing away the product. All that hard work you put into applying the serum will go down the drain – quite literally.
Reason #2: It Can Irritate Your Eyes
Washing your face with water after applying lash serum can also cause irritation to your eyes. This is because the water will wash away the protective barrier that the serum creates around your eyes.
You might also ascendingly get the lash growth serum to drip into your eyes which can cause irritation and redness.
Reason #3: It’s Not Necessary
Lash serums are designed to be left on overnight, so there’s no need to wash it off. If you’re a morning person and decide to apply your serum in the morning, that’s fine too.
After applying the growth serum, just wait 5 minutes for it to dry. That way, you can apply eye makeup on top such as mascara or eyeliner.
Now that you know that you don’t have to wash off lash serum, you can save time by skipping that step in your nighttime skincare routine. Just remember to apply the serum carefully and wait 5 minutes for it to dry before applying anything else to your lashes.
