How to Get Longer, Sexy Lashes Naturally

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Who doesn’t want eyelashes like the ones featured in mascara ads? The models always have “come-hither” ones that are long, lush, glossy and voluminous. And even though we know that those lashes are the result of a makeup artist’s expertise or Photoshop, we still flock to drugstores and cosmetic counters anticipating the thicker, fuller lashes that makeup brands promise.

If you’ve been blessed with a good amount of eyelashes, mascara can be a quick and simple fix if you want to give your lashes a little oomph. But what do you do if you don’t have much to work with? False lashes are an option, but who has time to apply them every day? And lash extensions can set you back up to $400 per session. If you want more dramatic lashes and don’t want to go to extremes, here are a few things that you can do to help promote eyelash growth.

Eat a Well-Balanced Diet

Just like the hair on your head, your lashes can thrive if you nourish them from the inside out. By eating a diet rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains and lean proteins, you can help ensure growth. You can also try adding a daily multivitamin if you don’t think you’re getting enough nutrients. A supplement that contains vitamins B, D and E is ideal. These vitamins are key for boosting growth and keeping lashes strong. Biotin is also another option. You can try a supplement or eat biotin-rich foods like bananas, pecans and sardines. Be sure to check with your doctor to make sure that supplements are right for you.

Groom Your Lashes

You take care of your hair every day. So start tending to those lashes. Try brushing your lashes twice a day with an eyelash brush. Brushing on a regular basis can help encourage growth. Add a little vitamin E oil to the process as well. Vitamin E oil is great because it prevents shedding. You can find vitamin E oil at a drugstore or health food store. Other options to try are castor oil and emu oil. Just lightly apply the oil of your choice to your lashes before bedtime, and avoid getting in in your eyes.

Always Be Gentle
When you’re taking off your eye makeup at night, don’t tug or rub your lashes. Use gentle strokes when using makeup remover or cold cream. And if you use lash curlers daily, you might want to take a break from them. Over time, they can weaken lashes and cause breakage. Try combing them instead for a neater look. If you’re looking for a more permanent lash growth solution that won’t break the bank, try everLASHing Lash Growth Serum from Verseo Beauty & Wellness. With this special blend of cell-regenerating peptides, botanical ingredients and lash conditioning elements, you can see healthier and fuller lashes in just four weeks.

Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

With Latisse, the first prescription only product to enhance eyelash growth, on the market many cosmetic companies are scrambling to create mascaras that are actually good for eyelashes. Revlon’s Grow Luscious Mascara conditions eyelashes and helps them grow, while making them appear longer and fuller instantly. We tried this one, and although it doesn’t give the dramatic results of Maybelline’s XXL Pro Extensions, the thick brush made the most of our lashes in a more natural way. After one week our lashes seemed fuller. We also love that this formula doesn’t get clumpy.
