Enhance Your Eyelashes Naturally

Eyelashes not only protect your eyes, they flatter and enhance your appearance too. Thus, most women want thicker and longer lashes as they know that fuller eyelashes will create a sexier and more attractive appearance.

So here are the tips we all want to know when it comes to enhancing your naturally lengths especially when it comes to the party season:

Petroleum Jelly

This inexpensive product, which has emollient and protective effects, is a foundation of home remedies to increase eyelash length. First remove any eyeliner, eye shadow or mascara with a cotton ball, then apply petroleum jelly with a new mascara wand, or one that you have first cleaned well to remove any trace of the original product. We recommend sleeping with the petroleum jelly on your eyelashes, but washing it off in the morning before you go about your day. For best results, repeat the treatment three times a week.

Green Tea

You can dip a cotton ball in green tea and smear it over the eyelashes to take advantage of green tea's beneficial properties. As the tea will stimulate growth and help clean the follicles, allowing growth to occur. With all home remedies for eyelash growth, take care not to get the liquid into your eye, and rinse well with cool water if you do.

Olive Oil

Olive oil is known to help protect, condition and lengthen eyelashes. So apply at bedtime with a clean mascara brush. Keep the oil on overnight, then remove it in the morning with a gentle eye makeup remover.

Brushing and Caring For Eyelashes

To stimulate growth and promote healthy lashes, we advise you to use a commercial professional eyelash brush to groom lashes twice a day. As with brushing your hair, this can help distribute natural oils along the length of your lashes. To avoid stress on your lashes and eye area, always remove eye makeup before going to bed.

Lemon Olive Oil

We suggests enhancing the healthful properties of olive oil by soaking a lemon peel in a jar of oil for several days, then carefully applying the mixture to your lashes. Lemon is a mild natural antiseptic and antimicrobial agent, and may help promote healthier lashes.

Proper Diet

You can enrich your diet to make sure you are getting the right nutrients and vitamins to promote eyelash growth. Eyelashes are made of keratin, a type of protein, and can benefit from a diet that includes high-protein foods like meat, fish, chicken, soy and tofu. Vitamin A is essential to lash growth, and this is found in eggs, fish oil, and red, yellow and orange fruits, while citrus fruits, potatoes and tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, a potent antioxidant. Calcium is also known to be essential for lashes, and this is found in milk, as well as in dark green leafy vegetables.

Eyelid Massage

Massaging your eyelids gently can increase blood flow and may stimulate growth of lashes. After washing your hands well, use the pads of your fingers to massage along your lids and lash line.
