Home Remedies for Longer Lashes

2018.10.27

Many of us have thin, short eyelashes that never seem to grow. This can be due to an array of factors, such as age, genetics, certain medical conditions, and hormonal changes. Since we can’t control the eyelashes we’re given, we should still be able to achieve the results we desire. Countless amounts of women crave to have longer eyelashes, so why not you? Skip the eyelash extensions, and instead follow these natural, easy home remedies for longer lashes!

Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline)

Pure Petroleum jelly (or Vaseline) is one of our favorite products. We already use it every day on our lips to keep them soft and moist, so putting it on our lashes is an easy transition. Simply put some Vaseline on your finger or a clean mascara wand, and apply to your lashes as if you’re applying regular mascara. Complete this regularly every night, and it will help your lashes grow faster, thicker, and stronger.

Aloe Vera is another great home remedy for thicker and longer lashes. Filled with several vitamins and nutrients, your lashes will stay moisturized and stimulated for continued growth. After applied, the lotion can stay on overnight. Just make sure to rinse it off with warm water the next morning.

Longer Lashes with Olive Oil

Olive oil is a key, natural remedy for thicker hair growth in general, so imagine the wonders this product can do for your lashes! Rich in vitamin E and oleic acid, the oil nourishes and adds a tremendous amount of volume to your eyelashes. Better yet, it also helps keep your lashes dark and more noticeable. Leave it on overnight, and wash it off in the morning with warm water for stronger lashes.

Green tea isn’t only healthy for your body, but your lashes too. Add green tea leaves to warm water, or simply steep a green tea bag into warm water until it changes colors. Wait until the water is cooled, then dip a cotton ball in the green tea and gently apply it to your lashes with your eyes closed. This promotes healthy lash growth, while making them stronger, thicker, and longer than ever. You can leave this product on as long as you want, then rinse right away with cold water.

Lemon Peels

An interesting trick consists of using lemon peels infused in olive or castor oil. The peel of a lemon is filled with many nutrients, including vitamin C, vitamin B, and folic acid. All of these contribute to the growth and added volume to your eyelashes. Soaking it in oil before use helps enhance the cleansing and stimulating properties of the oil. Simply apply the serum to your lashes every night, and wash it off with lukewarm water in the morning .
