Killer lashes help you get that wide-eyed look. Some people are born with it, but don’t fret if you’re not among the lucky ones. There are ways on how to grow lavish lashes, and they couldn’t be simpler than these three tips.
Stop the abuse
Just like the hair on your head, the more you tamper with your lashes, the higher the chances you’ll get shedding. Too much mascara and curling weakens the lashes, making them thinner and sparse. So, the first step is to be gentle.
The harsh removal of makeup can cause hairs to break and fall off. The best way to remove your eye makeup quickly and gently is to use soft cotton pads with a gentle eye makeup remover. Do not rub! Instead, press and hold to get rid of your mascara, eye shadow, and liner.
We girls were always told to condition our locks to keep them healthy and soft. The same thing applies to the lashes. Applying moisturizing products like Vaseline or Aquaphor before hitting the sack will keep your lashes strong and thick. If you’re not happy with the length of your strands, castor oil and vitamin e contain fatty acids that help promote hair growth.
Now, there are over the counter eyelash products that promise rapid hair growth but make sure to read the label. Some commercially-sold hair growers may contain harsh chemicals that may cause more harm than good. Check out this DIY Eyelash Growth Serum recipe if you prefer to make your own eyelash grower.
Proper nutrition is the ultimate secret to healthier hair. Make sure to incorporate healthy fats such as omega-3 and omega-6 in your diet because hair needs fats to maintain shine and repair breakage.
