Looking for a simple remedy for weak, fine eyelashes? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!
It is possible to strengthen your lashes to make them appear fuller and longer. You can try several DIY home remedies, as well as some safe salon techniques for this. Here are our top five tips for longer eyelashes:
1. Olive Oil
Olive oil contains essential fatty acids that act as emollients to soften your eyelashes. Using olive oil is a popular way to strengthen your lashes and improve their growth.
You can apply it easily with a disposable mascara wand. Dip it into the oil and brush it along the length of your eyelashes. A good product to consider in this regard is the Bliss of Greece Ancient Greek Remedy Oil, which is made from organic and vegan ingredients.
2. Petroleum Jelly
Petroleum jelly helps condition and moisturize your lash line, resulting in the growth of your lashes. You can also apply it to your lids to keep them hydrated and soft and maintain the general health of eyelashes.
Vaseline Petroleum Jelly is a common household product that you can easily find in the market. Simply take a disposable mascara brush, coat it with petroleum jelly, and brush it onto your eyelashes.
For the best results, use the product on your upper and lower lashes daily. Another useful tip is to apply it over your lashes just before applying mascara. This will prevent your eyelashes from turning dry and brittle, and make it easier to remove eye makeup in a single swipe.
3. Green Tea
Green tea is a great natural ingredient to aid eyelash growth. All you need is 1 teaspoon of green tea leaves and 1 cup of hot water.
Soak the leaves in the water for 5-10 minutes and let it cool. After it has cooled down, dip a cotton swab in it and apply to your upper and lower lashes. The antioxidants found in green tea help make them longer and thicker.
You can refrigerate the rest of the green tea in an air-tight container and use it for 3-4 days. Practice this method daily for the best results.
4. Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E is a well-known remedy for weak and short eyelashes. It is affordable and safe to use on your hair and skin. It is also taken as an oral supplement.
Celebrities vouch for vitamin E oil as a way to strengthen lashes and thicken eyebrows. It increases hair growth and prevents your lashes from shedding.
Get some vitamin E capsules and break one to extract the oil. Dip in your fingertips and massage your eyelids thoroughly for 5-10 minutes. This facilitates blood circulation and enables better lash growth.
Coat a spoolie brush with the oil and apply to your lashes in an upward motion. Make this a routine every night before you go to bed. Rinse off the oil when you wake up in the morning.
5. Lemon Peel Oil
Lemon peels are known to promote hair growth as they contain vitamins A and C. Cut a lemon peel into small pieces and keep them in a small container of olive or castor oil.
Use a spoon to press the peels against the jar to release maximum oils from the peel. Leave the mixture for a day or two. Now dip a cotton swab into it, apply it along your upper and lower lashes, and leave it on for a couple of hours. Practice this 3-4 times a week for longer eyelashes.
Besides these easy remedies for weak eyelashes, you can also try using an eyelash serum after consulting with your dermatologist. Furthermore, if you want instant results, get eyelash extensions. They are semi-permanent fibers that can get attached to your original lashes to make them look fuller and longer.
Another method you can try for longer eyelashes is lash perm, which is a chemical treatment that curls your eyelashes from the base to the tip. Take your time and explore which remedy suits you best. Click here to check out our esthetician school’s website.
