Your eyelashes largely determine your glance. This ensures that the eyelashes are very important. Are you not satisfied with the length of your lashes and would you like to stimulate the growth of your lashes so that they become longer or fuller? Then we have good news for you. In this article, we give you nine handy tips for natural eyelash growth, so that you too can enjoy beautiful and healthy long eyelashes.
Tips For Natural Eyelash Growth
Eyelashes can fall or break like normal hair. This can be through the use of particular makeup, by painting your eyelashes, or for some other reason. It is of course also possible that your eyelashes aren’t that long, and that you are looking for a way to make them grow longer. Whatever the reason is that you want an eyelash extension, we are happy to help you. You can support and encourage your lashes to grow faster and healthier:
1. Oils For Eyelash Growth
Oil can help your eyelashes grow faster, and it makes your lashes stronger and thicker! Before you go to sleep, apply oil through a cotton ball, cotton bud or mascara brush to your eyelash roots. Then let it soak all night and rinse it the next day with lukewarm water. Continue to do this consistently every night, so even if you have had a slightly more wild night. You can use different oils as long as the oil is pure, cold-pressed and 100% natural, for example, castor oil, almond oil or olive oil.
2. Avoid Waterproof Mascara
Many women use waterproof mascara, but if you want to take better care of your eyelashes so that they can grow, you better avoid this mascara as much as possible. Of course, it is nice that waterproof mascara even neatly on your eyelashes even during a rain shower, but there is also the danger. Because the mascara is not only removable with water, this mascara is more intense for your eyelashes. Often this mascara also becomes harder than the non-waterproof version, which makes it easier to break lashes. Also, removing waterproof mascara often also requires more effort. That is why it is better to choose a mascara that is not waterproof if you want to allow your eyelashes to recover or grow.
3. Do Not Sleep With Mascara
That sleeping with makeup on your face is not good for your skin is something that most women know. That sleeping with mascara on is not good for your eyelashes is something that not everyone knows. That is why it is very important that you not only remove your foundation or powder from your face but also that you clean your eyes well. By sleeping with clean eyes, you can not only provide your eyelashes with, for example, the oil from tip 1, but you also give them the chance to breathe and recover.
4. Clean Your Eyes Carefully
Speaking of cleaning your eyes: preferably do this with a little care. Use a mild oil-based cleaner to remove your mascara from your eyes without violence. For this, you can also put olive oil on a cotton ball and remove your mascara. Always do it carefully and without scrubbing. Then rinse your eyes clean with lukewarm water and use a washcloth to wipe away all residues of the cleaner/oil and makeup. Never pull your eyelashes to remove the mascara. This allows you not only to damage them, but you also run the risk of accidentally pulling them out.
5. Don’t Rub Your Eyes
Many people love to rub their eyes firmly when they are just awake or when they get tired. At this moment we would like to tell you that you really should not do this (anymore) if you want beautiful long eyelashes. By rubbing your eyes, your lashes not only break off faster, but you also lose more lashes. That is, of course, not what you want. Try not to do the rubbing in your eyes (anymore) to give your eyelashes the chance to grow nicely long.
6. Use Eyelash Enhancing Serum
Eyelash serums are an excellent way to lend a helping hand to your lashes if you want them to grow faster, fuller and longer. A good eyelash serum improve the health of your eyelashes, making them look better and stronger. These serums are available in different price ranges, so even women with a slightly smaller budget can support their lashes in this way. Spread the serum daily above the eyelash edge, and see after three months, the result of this miracle cure.
7. Be Patient
Okay, you might not want to hear this if you are looking for ways to grow your lashes (faster), but still: be patient. Your eyelashes will not grow much longer within a few weeks, no matter how nice that is. Not only do eyelashes grow a lot slower than, for example, the hair on your head, but they also have a growth limit. So no matter how hard you try to make your lashes grow longer, there will eventually come the point where they will not grow any further. This is something you can’t do anything about. Although your eyelashes will stop growing at some point, they will look a lot fuller and more beautiful with the tips above. Ultimately, you can optically extend that length by means of a good mascara.
8. Eat Healthy
Not only is care from the outside important if you want beautiful long eyelashes, but also care from the inside counts. Your eyelashes need enough vitamins and minerals to grow. Therefore choose a balanced diet that is rich in proteins, vitamins and healthy fats. Consider, for example, fish, fresh vegetables, eggs, soy, beans and yogurt. In addition, drinking enough water (at least 1.5 to 2 litres per day) is also very important to keep your body, and therefore your eyelashes, healthy.
9. Vaseline, Aloe vera and Vitamin E
In addition to oil, there are a few other products that can stimulate eyelash growth. The method of application is the same: do something on an eyelash brush, cotton swab or clean mascara brush and apply this to your eyelashes from the lash application. Leave it on all night. If you use aloe vera, choose pure aloe vera gel. You can buy vitamin E in capsules. You can break open this capsule and apply it to your eyelashes and lash line.
Fake Or Eyelash Extension
For those who are very dissatisfied with the length of her eyelashes, and for whom the above tips do not work sufficiently, there is always the possibility to opt for eyelash extensions or fake eyelashes. You can easily apply fake eyelashes yourself to give your eyelashes more volume and to make your eyes stand out. Eyelash extensions are a solution for women who are dissatisfied with their own eyelashes, but who also don’t feel like applying fake eyelashes every day. It is best to have eyelash extensions put at a good (beauty) specialist, after which you have to refill them after a number of weeks.
Nice Long Eyelashes
For women who are not satisfied with the length of their lashes, or who would like to see their lashes a little healthier or more beautiful, the above tips can help. In any case, never go to sleep with mascara, always clean your eyes carefully, and do not rub your eyes to keep your lashes as beautiful as possible. With oil or a lash serum, you can then support and stimulate your lashes to grow faster and longer. Remember that the growth of eyelashes takes a lot of time, and you will have to be patient until you can enjoy the result. For women who cannot bear that patience and who want to see immediate results, fortunately, there is always the option of taking fake eyelashes or eyelash extensions. In the latter case, make sure that you choose a good and reliable salon.
