Hands up who loves long fluttery lashes?
You’re not alone, and in an age of strip lashes and semi – permanent extensions, achieving full flirty lashes is easier than ever.
However, continually subjecting your lids to glue and fake lashes may not be the best way – not only can the application of fake lashes on a regular basis sometimes cause your natural lashes to thin, the glue and prosthetic lashes can also lead to bacteria build up.
Thankfully, there's no need to despair just yet, as natural, healthy, luscious lashes can still be yours with our top tips:
Comb Your Lashes
Believe it or not, taking the time to comb through your lashes 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.
If you’re a beauty blog addict, you already know that coconut oil seems to be a magical 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.
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.
The easiest and safest way to encourage thicker lashes, however, is an eyelash serum.
