What Are the Best Non-prescription Eyelash Enhancers?

The eyelashes play a surprisingly important role in the appearance of your eyes and can create an instant impact of beauty. However, some women have skimpy or short eyelashes and would dearly love to use an enhancement product to improve the fullness and length of their lashes. Unfortunately, some of the prescription products that can enhance your lashes also have some rather worrisome side effects and this makes many women wary of placing their health at risk for the sake of beauty. This means that women who do not wish to use prescription products must find a non-prescription eyelash enhancer instead, but the big question is whether or not they really work.

What Are the Best Non-prescription Eyelash Enhancers?

Most over the counter eyelash enhancers do one of two things – they either make the lashes look darker, which creates the illusion of fuller lashes or they encourage the health of the lash hair which will in turn create a fuller lash. The products that work to encourage the health of the lash itself are by far the best bet and they will help remove any split ends and brittle ends that can happen to lashes. This will encourage the stronger lash that can be brushed with mascara for the entire length of the lash. Essentially, if you are really want to use non-prescription eyelash enhancers that work then you need to focus on its ingredient list.

The eyelashes are in place to protect the eye and if your lashes are sparse, thin or brittle the lashes cannot do their job completely. Eyelash enhancers that can offer olive oil or a type of Vaseline alternative can actually help strengthen the lashes as well as prevent split ends or breakage. In fact, you can make your own products out of olive oil and brush them on each night. In about six weeks you should be able to see a difference in the overall quality of your lashes.

Grow Long and Healthy Eyelashes

While the jury is still about how affective non-prescription eyelash enhancers and growth serums really are anything that can help keep the follicles healthy and in good shape is a bonus. In order to minimize your risks of side effects from any over the counter products, try to stick with those that are either made for hypoallergenic purposes or else use natural ingredients as these tend to have the gentler formulas. The internet is a great source of information that can help you find just what you need.
