Surprising Ways to Grow Longer Eyelashes Naturally

Many of us would like to own a pair of long and luscious lashes. Eyelashes are one of the easiest ways to manipulate your makeup look to go from sultry to sunny, from glam to giddy. The eyes are one of the most noticeable and memorable features, and if you are searching for a way to grow longer eyelashes naturally, you may be able to find a few tricks to help out. Barring any health issues or vitamin deficiencies, you can boost your eyelashes with a few quick and simple hints and tricks. Let’s take a look at a few.

Vaseline has been a makeup staple for a very long time. Not only does petroleum jelly add a nice shine to your lashes, it can help strengthen the lashes. While there are a fair number of skeptics who claim that there is no medical basis for using Vaseline to Grow Longer Eyelashes naturally, there are just as many who claim that it works. If you want to try this inexpensive remedy, you will need clean Vaseline, and a new and clean brush or wand. Place a small amount of petroleum jelly on the base of the lash and brush gently upwards.

Simple lash care can go a long way towards your goal to grow longer eyelashes naturally. Using vitamin E oil on the lashes in the same way you use Vaseline can help protect the lashes, and vitamin E may stimulate the growth of the hair follicles. Also, when you apply these topical enhancements to your eyelashes use a soft and clean brush every time. Brush through the lashes multiple times much in the way you make your hair look shiny by brushing it regularly. Use the gentlest pressure, and make sure you are careful to avoid actual contact to the inner lids and the eyeball.

Mascara today is much more than a beauty agent. Many mascaras offer Eyelash growth serums and proteins within the mascara itself in a way to grow longer eyelashes naturally. When using mascara that will stimulate growth, be very careful to avoid getting in the eye, as this could lead to irritation. Always avoid touching your fingers to your inner eye lids, in order to prevent bacterial contamination. Use a gentle makeup remover and avoid harsh chemicals. Buy the most hypoallergenic makeup. These simple techniques are inexpensive and quite effective. You can have longer and more beautiful lashes just by staying clean and healthy.
