Tips for success: Think routine
Try to incorporate Latisse into your nightly routine – for example, after you’ve washed your face and brushed your teeth.
Keep it handy Store the Latisse bottle near your other skin care products or toothbrush, so you won’t forget to apply it each night.
Be patient and consistent Latisse (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% takes time to work. Only use it once a night, and don’t overuse it, as this may increase the chance of experiencing eye redness or itchiness.
Start fresh If your eye makeup remover leaves an oily residue on your eyelids, wash off any excess oils with soap and water to ensure a clean surface before you apply Latisse.
Follow the rules Always use the sterile, disposable, FDA-approved applicator provided in the kit. Don’t try to apply Latisse with a cotton swab. The Latisse applicator is specially designed to hold a drop and release a drop.
Don’t play catch up If you miss a dose one night, don’t apply more just to catch up. Simply apply Latisse the next evening and stay on schedule.
Beware of germs Don’t let the tip of the bottle or applicator contact your fingers or any other unintended surface, in order to avoid contamination by common bacteria known to cause infections.
