Continually subjecting your lids to glue and fake lashes is a losing proposition. Not only does the application of fake lashes on a regular basis cause your natural lashes to thin even more, the glue and prosthetic lashes lead to bacteria build up.
But none of that means you don’t want beautiful lashes, right? That’s why we’ve collected these tips for natural, healthy, luscious lashes.
- Comb Your Lashes
Believe it or not, taking the time to comb through your lashes daily (or twice daily!) can help stimulate growth. It helps to rid your lashes of particles, dirt, pollen and dust, and it also spreads your natural lash oils through the hair, softening them. This can encourage your lashes to grow longer before being shed, with the overall result being thicker lashes.
- Coconut Oil
If you’re a beauty blog addict, you already know that coconut oil seems to be a magical (if sometimes messy!) remedy for almost anything… so it should come as no surprise that it can be a great lash asset as well. The oil itself makes lashes softer and more resilient to shedding, and the natural vitamins and nutrients in it can encourage healthy growth. You can melt a little between your index finger and thumb and coat your lashes with a cotton ball or clean mascara wand.
- Eyelid Massage
Blood flow is vital to healthy lash growth and a massage is a great way to encourage it. Gently massaging your eyelids and lashes once or twice on a daily basis for five to ten minutes can lead to healthier, stronger lashes. Feel free to combine this with your coconut oil application!
- Lemon Peel Infusion
Lemon peels are loaded with vitamin C, vitamin B and folic acid—all of which are critical elements to thicker, healthier hair growth. Of course, putting lemon peels on your eyes probably isn’t a good idea. However, you can create a lemon peel infusion by soaking lemon peels in olive oil for several days. Apply up to one drop of the infused oil nightly before bedtime.
- Eyelash Serum
The easiest and safest way to encourage thicker lashes, however, is an eyelash serum. Our AGELESS LASHES clear lashes enhancer makes your lashes look great while providing the benefits of all of the above tips, safely and conveniently.
