Ways To Get Longer Eyelashes

All women in the world, no matter their age, occupation or personal interests, dream about having longer eyelashes. While some women are born with naturally long and thick eyelashes, other have to fight for them. There are many ways in which you can stimulate your eyelashes to grow longer, as you will have the opportunity to discover below. Always strive to obtain longer eyelashes naturally, avoiding false eyelashes or eyelash extensions. These are not healthy, and they can cause serious allergic reactions, causing your eyelashes to fall out. Natural is always better, as less is more.

#1 Proper removal of makeup
No matter how simple this may sound, the proper removal of makeup can not only help your eyelashes to grow longer, but it will also prevent them from falling. When you use makeup removal products, you are cleaning your eyelashes, eliminating not only makeup but also excess debris and grease accumulated throughout the day. Always remove your makeup before going to bed, allowing your eyelashes to regenerate overnight.

#2 Avoid excessive rubbing
Often times, we do a lot of things that are not good for us and our bodies. When it comes to the health of the eyelashes, excessive rubbing can be quite harmful, preventing the eyelashes from growing longer. If you want to look beautiful and have long, thick eyelashes, you have to refrain from such actions. If you suffer from allergies, use antihistamines and topical treatments but avoid excessive rubbing at all costs. Keep in mind that such actions can also increase the risk of infection, as you are bringing bacteria directly into the area, through dirty hands.

#3 Eyelash growth products
One of the obvious things that you can do is use eyelash growth products. These are widely available, and they contain natural ingredients, being able to stimulate eyelash growth. Some of these products can cause the eyelashes to become thicker as well, so make sure to check the entire range of benefits before using them. Use the eyelash growth serums exactly as instructed, applying them before going to bed (for the best results). And, remember, these can take a long time to provide the desired results, so be patient.

#4 Natural remedies (oils)
If you want your eyelashes to grow naturally, you have to give olive oil a try. Take a clean mascara wand and apply olive oil directly on the eyelashes, as if you were applying mascara. As an alternative to olive oil, you can consider castor oil or coconut oil, applying them to the eyelashes in the same manner. You can also apply Vaseline for the same purposes, leaving the application overnight for the best results. In the morning, all you have to do is rinse off your eyelashes and enjoy their beautiful appearance. Repeat the application for a couple of weeks or until you obtain satisfactory results. Avoid too frequent applications, otherwise, the excess oil will cause the lash follicles to become clogged.

#5 Green tea on eyelashes
Green tea is not only a delicious beverage but also a great remedy for beautiful, long eyelashes. It is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, helping the eyelashes to stay healthy and grow beautifully. All you have to do is brew a cup of green tea, allowing it to cool. Then, take a cotton swab and apply the green tea on your eyelashes. Allow the green tea to stay on your eyelashes overnight, for the best results. In the morning, rinse them off with warm water. Repeat for a couple of weeks.

#6 Eyelid massage
Just before going to bed, take a couple of minutes to relax and perform a gentle eyelid massage. This will help you fall asleep faster but, at the same time, it will also stimulate the growth of your eyelashes. A gentle massage can bring more blood in the area, nourishing the lash follicle and helping you look more amazing than ever.

#7 Aloe vera
Speaking about a natural remedy, did you know that aloe vera can be used to stimulate the growth of your eyelashes? If you want to take advantage of this great natural remedy, all you have to do is take some fresh aloe vera gel and apply it on your eyelashes, using a clean mascara wand. The application is best made before going to bed so that the aloe vera can work its magic overnight.
These are only a couple amazing ways in which you can get longer eyelashes. As you have seen, these are easy to follow, and they often include natural remedies, which can nourish your eyelashes, supporting them in growing long and beautiful.
