8 No-Fail Home Remedies For Longer Lashes
Longer fuller lashes are on every girl’s beauty wish list. They instantly open up your eyes, and make them look brighter and wider. While there are many quick ways to get fuller lashes, such as curling them, or adding falsies and lash extensions, these are all temporary, expensive, and might do you more harm than good in the long run. Hence, we have listed down some simple home remedies for longer lashes that you should add to your beauty routine stat!
Apply castor oil
This is a trick I personally swear by. It is as simple as taking a few drops of organic castor oil, and applying it to your lashes and lashline. Castor oil is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin E and proteins. It also has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties that help in the growth and strengthening of hair follicles. Not only does castor oil trigger growth, but also makes your lashes stronger, which prevents them from breaking.
Do a Vaseline massage
Massage your eyelids gently every day with Vaseline. This improves blood circulation in and around your eye area, and promotes lash growth in the process.
Try cooling aloe vera
While most people swear by aloe vera for gorgeous skin, it also helps you grow stronger, fuller lashes. You can use aloe vera in a gel formula or even in its natural form. It is rich in amino acids and protein, and also makes your lashes shinier. I mean, who doesn’t want luscious shiny lashes?
Remove eye makeup
Makeup clogs the skin around the eyes, which is very thin already, and mascara is very heavy on the lashes. Removing it at night gives your lashes a rest.
While removing your makeup, be super gentle. Tugging and rubbing cause even the strongest of lashes to fall out. If you are rough with your lashes, they can become sparse, and may not grow back as healthy. Also remember, your eyelashes take longer to grow back than your hair, so you don’t want to damage what you currently have.
Comb Your Lashes
Just as it is vital for us to comb or brush our hair, brushing your lashes every day with an eyebrow brush can help stimulate growth. Gentle brushes for no longer than a minute should do the trick!
Trim your lashes
This really helps! Just like your hair needs a regular trim, your lashes too need the same once every two to three months. Just trim a small part, around 1/4th. Trimming your lashes will stimulate the follicles of your eyelashes, and make them grow faster.
You must have a balanced diet to support the growth of healthy eyelash hair from within the body. A few ingredients that are great to boost the health of your eyes and eyelashes are Omega 3 fatty acids, iron, Vitamin C, and dry fruits and nuts are rich in these ingredients.
DIY Lash Serum
This wonder serum is completely natural, and a fool-proof way to get healthier lashes.
Mix together equal portions of coconut oil, castor oil and Vitamin E oil (You can also pop open a Vitamin E capsule.) Now simply massage this serum on to your lashes, and leave it on overnight. This conditioning serum will give you voluminous lashes like never before.
That’s all folks! Follow these simple steps, and you will get richer, fuller and luscious lashes.
