Home Treatments to Give You Longer Eyelashes
In today’s world, where everything needs to be picture-perfect, people try hard to create a flawless and beautiful look. Eyelashes are one of the most important beauty features that can create magic, but unfortunately, very few of us have perfect natural lashes due to our carelessness. Magnetic eyelashes have resolved the issue for most of us, but having fuller and thicker lashes naturally can save your entire look.
Here are some of the natural remedies to take care of your eyelashes.
a) Castor Oil
Ricinoleic acid is the main component of castor oil and makes about 95% of it. This acid has shown potential in assisting with hair loss. Thus, it may also be a choice for maintaining the thickness of your lashes.
Before applying castor oil:
- Cleanse your eyelashes thoroughly with water and pat them dry with a mild cleanser.
- Soak the cotton swab in castor oil and apply it along your upper and lower lash lines.
- Avoid getting the oil into your eyes.
- Keep the oil on overnight and wash it off the following day.
b) Vitamin E
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can help decrease oxidative damage causing an improvement in hair loss. It also contains tocotrienol mixtures that may help increase the number of hair strands.
You can apply vitamin E to your lashes. It is even safe to ingest as an oral sequel. But before taking the supplements, talk to your doctor for the correct dose.
c) Green Tea
Green tea is a rich source of a polyphenol called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which can help support your lashes’ growth.
You will need one teaspoon of green tea leaves (or one teabag) and 1 cup of hot water. Mix the two constituents and steep for 5-10 minutes. Strain the liquid and drink it warm.
d) Vaseline (Petroleum Jelly)
Vaseline (petroleum jelly) can moisturize your eyelids and help eliminate eyelash mites, preventing further damage to the lashes. However, there are no thoughts on its ability to aid eyelash growth.
- Apply some petroleum jelly on a cotton swab and apply it to the upper and lower eyelids.
- Make sure you are avoiding getting it into your eyes.
- Leave it on overnight and rinse it off the following day.
e) Shea Butter
Shea butter is rich in vitamin C and is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin C prevents free extreme damage and raises collagen. Hence, shea butter may help you maintain the density of your lashes and boost their mass.
Take a tiny amount of shea butter and rub it between your fingers until it melts. Apply it to the upper and lower eyelashes. Leave it on overnight.
f) Biotin Supplement
Biotin deficiency can cause loss of hair on the eyebrows and eyelashes. Ingesting biotin supplements may help improve this condition. Consult a healthcare expert for the correct dosage of biotin supplements.
A combination of these remedies may help in achieving your perfect eyelashes. However, it would help if you also considered making a few lifestyle changes to prevent further damage and thinning of your eyelashes. Because if you are fond of magnetic eyelashes, you need fuller lashes to make them stick on them.
