Tired of buying lengthening mascaras that guarantee to work but never really quite deliver? Or falsies that give you that alluring cat-eye look but leave your eyes feeling uncomfortably heavy by noon? Well, we have just the solution. Try these easy 5 steps for longer, thicker lashes.
Give your lashes a break
Some people actually believe wearing mascara enhances the length of your lashes but some find that wearing excessive amounts of mascara every day leaves their lashes feeling brittle, causing breakage and often discomfort throughout the day. Now, we don’t expect you to throw out your mascara or falsies but try doing without them for a few days. This will buy your natural lashes some recovery time and a break from all that you put those little hairs through.
So not only do false eyelashes and mascara leave your lashes brittle but they also strip away their natural moisture. This is why you need a lash serum, which helps restore moisture and improves the overall growth of hair follicles. Try using one of these.
Natural oils for hair growth
The natural option is always worth a try, not only is it cost-effective but it’s the safest option.
Castor oil and olive oil are rich in vitamin E and fatty acids that nourish your lashes. It is also known to be a powerful hair follicle stimulant, which promises to give you longer and fuller lashes.
Here’s how to do it…
- Clean your eyelashes so that they are free of any dirt or make-up residue.
- Dip a cotton swab into a small amount of castor oil and run it on top of eyelashes, be careful not to drto some into the eyes.
- Apply the castor oil before bed and wash off it in the morning using warm water and a clean towel.
Comb your lashes
Make-up experts have attested to seeing the difference in brushing out your eyelashes as a great way of making them appear longer while also promoting growth. The world’s most famous and trusted make-up artist Mario Dedivanocvis swears by the power of the lash comb and believes that every woman should keep one in her make-up bag.
