For most women, achieving longer lashes is normally a goal that is accomplished with the use of store-bought cosmetics or fake eyelashes. Unfortunately, these products can contain toxins which may be harmful to your skin, eyes, and eyelashes.
You do not need to rely on cosmetics to create fuller, longer lashes. There are many natural ways to achieve the same look without spending a dime on cosmetic products. Instead of spending hard-earned money on beauty product or fake eyelashes, try these 3 methods of making your eyelashes longer naturally – without cosmetics.
#1 – Use Castor Oil
Castor oil can be used to help grow your eyelashes, along with any other hair on your body – the hair on your head or your eyebrows. A combination of anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, promote new hair growth and improve the health of your hair follicles.
To use castor oil for fuller eyelashes, first wash your eyes and clean your face of any makeup. Place two drops of castor oil on a cotton swab and then apply it to your eyelashes – working from your roots to the ends of your lashes.
Use this method several times per week, after taking a shower or after you get home from work – just remember to wash your face.
#2 – Home Eyelash Growth Treatment
The next step requires a bit of work. You will need to combine a couple of ingredients to create your own eyelash growth treatment. Lavender has been found to promote hair growth, while coconut oil works as a base for giving the mixture the right consistency to apply to your hair.
To make your own eyelash growth treatment you will need ½ a teaspoon of coconut oil and two to four drops of lavender essential oil. Mix the two ingredients together and then apply to your eyelashes. Use the same technique for applying castor oil, using a cotton swab to apply the mixture along your eyelashes.
#3 – Massage Your Eyelids
The concept behind massaging your eyelids is that increased blood circulation around your eyes will help your lashes grow. Each night, before you go to bed, massage the eyelid area for a couple of minutes. Make sure that you wash your hands before using this technique.
These three options should be used together. Stick with it and you should start seeing results in about one to three months. Use each method several times per week. Obviously, you should not apply the castor oil and lavender mixture at the same time. Apply one treatment at a time – perhaps one in the morning and one in the evening.
Follow up the treatments with an eye massage, at the end of the day. While you are waiting for your eyelashes to grow longer and fuller, avoid using fake eyelashes or cosmetics to make your eyelashes longer.
Be patient and give this natural treatment time to work properly. Not everyone experiences positive hair growth or long eyelashes, but it is a simple home remedy that requires hardly any expenses or time.
You have nothing to lose, by trying these three methods. Before long, you could have longer, fuller eyelashes, without using any cosmetics.
