Tips for boosting your eyelash growth
Do you want long, luscious-looking, and defined eyelashes?
Well, join the line.
Longer eyelashes can definitely be striking and will make people take notice of you. They also help frame the eyes beautifully and give them added appeal. Sadly, not all of us are blessed with long and thick eyelashes. Of course, there are the lengthening mascaras and false eyelashes available in the market to give you volume. And, let's not forget the semi-permanent eyelash extensions. But, at the end of the day, they are not forever.
How about having amazing looking lashes permanently? Read on as we list a few of the most effective tips that can help boost your eyelash growth like no other.
Invest in a Lash Comb
Eyelashes are hair, just on your eyelids. We know brushing helps to promote healthy hair growth, the same way eyelash growth can be encouraged too. Brush your eyelashes using a lash comb two to three times a day. This helps to boost their roots and simultaneously distribute natural oils along every single lash. You don't have to worry about the cost, since eyelash combs are relatively cheap.
Give Your Eyelashes A Castor Oil Massage
Naturally rich in ricinoleic, castor oil will help you kill two birds with one stone. It promotes hair growth while repairing previous damage to hair follicles, giving you great-looking and great-feeling lashes. You can use castor oil to massage your eyelashes by storing the oil in a tube and using a clean mascara wand for application. While you're at it, massage your eyelids with the oil as well. Include this in your nightly routine for faster results.
Remove Your Eye Makeup before Going to Sleep
When you don’t remove mascara, eyeshadow, and eyeliner before going to sleep, you block your eyelashes’ air passage. This makes them weaker and more prone to breaking. In fact, you can replace your traditional mascara with a lash conditioner. A lash conditioner gives you similar results while boosting eyelash growth.
Trim Your Eyelashes
This may sound funny but we’re not kidding.
Trimming your eyelashes every three to four months can actually stimulate faster hair growth. Also, you get healthier lashes as the weaker hair follicles get chopped off. Having said this, trimming eyelashes can be a risky business. You have to be very careful when you do this to not trim too much. Only go for the very tips of your eyelashes.
Place Green Tea on Your Lash Line
When you are making your next cup of green tea, don’t throw away the tea bag after use. Instead, store it in your fridge. When it is cold, take it out and place it on your lash line. Green tea contains flavonoids that keep your hair follicle clean and promotes its growth.
Start Using Eyelash Serums
Eyelash serums can help your eyelashes grow faster and give them a healthier look. Currently, there are many serums containing antioxidants and vitamins available in the market which are easy on the pocket as well. Otherwise, you can always make a DIY by combining coconut oil with lavender essential oil.
Start Taking Multivitamin Supplements
Multivitamin supplements give your body a good dose of vitamins and minerals that are beneficial for your skin and hair. With our packed schedules, sometimes it's not possible for us to ensure that we have a balanced diet that's rich in minerals and other essential nutrition. So, any deficiency of nutrients can be met by using these supplements.
Adopt A Nutritious and Proper Diet
Yes, we did discuss taking supplements above. But, that's a short-term alternative. You need to look after your body and the only way you can is by watching what you eat. Eyelash growth can be boosted when you incorporate protein, and vitamins in your diet. Food items such as eggs, yogurt, fish, and other items rich in omega-3 fatty acids can give you the eyelashes that you dream of. After all, the inside matters the most.
So, these were some of our most effective hacks that'll help you achieve the eyelashes you've seen in magazines and commercials. Just a couple of adjustments to your lifestyle can give you, not only thicker and healthier eyelashes but also a better functioning body.
