Beautiful eyelashes are a dream to every woman. There are a lot of safe mascara brands on the market that helps you take care of your eyelashes and also mitigate the flaws of your eyelashes but what if you could get better eyelashes naturally? Mascara that you apply on your naturally healthy eyelashes will look much better than when you apply them on dry and unhealthy eyelashes. It’s always better to keep your lashes healthy from the inside, as well as from the outside. If your eyelashes are naturally healthy, once you apply mascara, it would be much better than what we call “perfection.” However, not a lot of us take any effort to keep up the good health of our eyelashes. While some of us may have sparse eyelashes genetically, the others may have short and thin eyelashes due to lack of care.
Here are a few things that you can do to take care of your eyelashes even if you use safe mascara brands:
Castor oil is the best thing to use for thick and healthy eyelashes. You can mix it with a few drops of other oils like olive oil, Lavender oil, tea tree oil, rosemary oil, or neem oil (Azadirachta Indica), and then apply it on your eyelashes. The best way to apply this mixture on your eyelashes is with the help of an old mascara bottle. Clean up an old mascara bottle and wand well and wait for it to dry. Add a few drops of castor oil and the other oils that you want to add, and then shake well after closing the bottle. Apply this mixture from the roots to the tips of your eyelashes every night before you go to bed. Wash it with mild soap in the morning to keep your eyelashes healthy and dark.
Olive oil is excellent for skin and well as your hair and eyelashes. You should mix olive oil with castor oil just like I mentioned above, and apply it using an old mascara bottle. These oils work on your eyelashes because they contain plenty of anti-oxidants and fatty acids that nourish your eyelashes. They also contain substances which will help in the betterment of the blood circulation in the roots of your eyelashes which will promote in faster growth of theirs. No matter what oil you apply on your eyelashes, make sure that you don’t let them get into your eyes.
Petroleum jelly is yet another remedy for weak eyelashes. You can buy a separate disposable wand to apply petroleum jelly on your eyelashes. Make sure you keep the wand clean and store it in an airtight cover after you use it every time. Applying petroleum jelly before you go to bed every night will let your eyelashes and their roots to absorb the moisture and nutrients it has to offer. If you’re patient enough to follow this beauty ritual every night for at least two weeks, you will notice evident changes in the thickness and health of your eyelashes.
Lemon peels are a rich source of Vitamin A and C which helps in hair growth. Well, you cannot apply just the lemon peels on your eyelashes because it will sting since the area around your eyes are sensitive, and that’s why you need to soak them in oil and then use the oil on your lashes. You can use any oil for this purpose, but a blend of castor oil, olive oil, and essential oils is the best choice.
Green tea contains anti-oxidants more than you can imagine and anti-oxidants are good for your body externally as well as internally. This is why health and beauty conscious people always make an effort to drink a few cups of green tea and use them in their beauty regimes regularly.
Vitamin E contains anti-oxidants that will promote hair growth. Also, they help in improving the blood circulations in the hair follicles which will get you thicker and longer eyelashes. You can buy Vitamin E capsules and prick them open with a pin and apply the oil on your lashes. Leave it for a whole night and wash it out in the morning. Repeat the process every three days a week for better eyelash growth.
Apart from the above things that you can do, try massaging your lash lines every day and brush them twice a day. This will help to take care of your eyelashes even in the distribution of natural oils on your eyelashes, and it will also assist in faster growth.
