Many of us were not blessed with long luscious lashes, and dream of having them! Naturally long lashes are a perfect addition to any makeup look, and make it easy to pull off that “makeup free makeup” look. The key to natural eyelash regrowth is natural solutions! Keeping your body healthy is always the key to looking your best, but there are also a few additional tricks for getting those dreamy lashes. Here are Faviana’s tips and tricks for How to Grow Your Eyelashes!
As with growing healthy hair on your head, diet is key to growing long and strong lashes. Make sure you are eating a well balanced diet, with lots of protein. If you’re a vegetarian make sure you pack your diet with eggs and nuts to ensure you get enough protein. Multivitamins are also a great way to ensure you get the full spectrum of vitamins that you could be missing in your diet. Hydration is also necessary for eyelash growth, so be sure you are drinking enough water each day. Start packing a water bottle every day for work or school!
Remove All Makeup
Eyelashes can become brittle and break if mascara and eye liner are not removing fully every day. Invest in a good quality, all natural eye, makeup remover that really works. Try to avoid over scrubbing your eyes to remove makeup as this can damage lashes, instead try using a soft cotton pad to gently swipe off your makeup each night. Try also taking a day or two a week to avoid eye makeup, to give your lashes a break from their daily abuse.
All Natural Serums
There are many prescription serums out there for eyelash regrowth, but if you are looking for something all natural that won’t have any negative side effects, there are several that you may already have. One of the best suggestions is olive oil. Using a Q-Tip swob a small amount of olive oil onto your lashes, at the base, before bed. Olive oil, or castor oil, are also great for conditioning your lashes and helping to promote future growth. Lavender oil, and aloe vera also have positive feedback for eyelash growth and strengthening!
No More Curling!
Eyelash curling might be a part of your daily routine, but it could also be hurting your lash growth! Even gentle curling can make your lashes weak and discourage growth. Try to skip curling for a while to give your eyelashes a break, or if you feel naked without it try only curling a few times a week for big events. If you insist on curling, invest in a curler with a good quality cushion on the rims to be gentle to your lashes.
Always be sure you are feeding your body with healthy foods and celebrating it with a healthy lifestyle! Try a few of our tricks to promote healthy eyelash growth, and see what works for you.
