If you have naturally long eyelashes, who says you need to invest in a lot of mascara? So, with the hype lately being long eyelashes, The Community shares top eight tips on how to make your eyelashes grow naturally!
Brush your eyelashes
It sounds weird right? There are actually small little combs that you can use to brush your eyelashes out before you put on that mascara, but did you know that by brushing your eyelashes, you can actually make them grow a little longer?
Instead of spending your money on something that could darken your eyes, why not try something easy and quick? Just a little swipe of Vaseline on your eyelid before you go to bed will increase your lashes and will make them longer! This will take a while to see results, but it surely works wonder!
Olive oil really works! Just adding a bit of olive oil to your lids at night will truly help your eyelashes soak up all of the vitamins and minerals in the oil!
Try lash Accelerator
Did you know that there are actually lash accelerator mascaras out there? Rimmel London has a great one and it really works! While you might spend a little more on mascara, in the end, you’ll save because your lashes will grow longer and thicker. Try it and you will love it!
Eyelashes can fall out, they can even break and be brittle if we do happen to mistreat them. This means that rubbing your eyelids and actually stimulating the hair follicles can truly help make them grow stronger and longer in no time at all!
Finally ladies, if you truly can’t get your eyelashes to grow, there is always lengthening mascara that you can try. Stiletto is the of my favourites…try it…
Before you give up and go with just a lengthening mascara though, why not try some straight vitamin E? Vitamin E lotion is a great way to really increase your eyelashes and really, the vitamin that will push your eyelashes to the max of growth.
Did you know that your diet can actually affect how your eyelashes grow too? If you have a really bad diet and are constantly eating up fatty foods, you might see that your eyelashes aren’t as long as they could be. Switch up your diet and get some fruits and veggies in there and you’ll notice a huge difference!
Focus on protein
Sometimes, a healthy diet may not be enough to grow your eyelashes. If you’re not getting enough protein, no amount of fruits and veggies will fix it. While you shouldn’t overdose on protein, you do need it to grow your hair out, even your eyelashes. Eat more body-friendly proteins instead of red meat or heavily processed powders. You may like raw vegan protein powders for a cleaner option, and like to focus on wild fish, which is full of benefits. Eggs are another great option.
Known as the hair, nail and skin vitamin, biotin is a B vitamin that will make your hair grow fast! In fact, you can grow your eyelashes out in three months by taking biotin every single day. Start with supplements that are allergen friendly like Sundown Naturals 5,000mg for extra strength.
When washing your makeup off, be sure not to pull at your eyelashes. Get mascara that comes off easily to prevent tugging and pulling at lashes. Pulling stunts growth and undoes all the hard work you’ve put into making those lashes grow again! Try Physician’s Formula AquaProof mascara. It’s affordable, available at any drugstore, it stays on all day, is water-proof, and it comes off easily with a little makeup remover.
