How to Get Longer Eyelashes: 12 Secrets Revealed

how to get longer eyelashesBefore we touch on how to get longer eyelashes, let us first understand some of the causes of our eyelashes falling off or breaking.

  • Rubbing. Most of us are guilty of this bad habit.
  • Makeup practice. We love dramatic eyes. Us girls put on loads of eye makeup, curl our lashes until they are sky high, and put on tons of mascara until they appear really long. The worst part is we tend to leave our makeup on overnight not knowing this could be harmful to our lashes.
  • Medical conditions. There are some medical conditions such as thyroid issues and some other disorders that cause our lashes to fall off.

  • Shedding. Our eyelashes have a shedding phase, they fall off naturally during this cycle

The secret of how to get longer eyelashes is to properly care for them. Here are some tips on how to take care of our eyelashes to achieve those gorgeous, healthy lashes.

  • Remove makeup.  Wearing  makeup overnight is harmful to our skin and that includes eye makeup. Always remove makeup before going to bed. Long hours of wearing mascara can cause our eyelashes to go dry and brittle making them prone to breakage. Use a makeup remover specifically for the eyes to get rid of the product easily. Gently clean the eye area using a cotton ball or a cotton pad. For waterproof mascara, put makeup remover onto the cotton pad and lightly press the pad on your lids for a few seconds. This will allow the mascara to dissolve, making it easier for you to remove the product completely.
  • Moisturize them. Petroleum jelly acts as a moisturizer. Use a clean mascara brush or cotton swab. Get an ample amount of petroleum jelly and apply to lashes. Wipe away excess to prevent getting it in your eyes. Leave it overnight and wash it off with lukewarm water the next morning.
  • Go natural. Apply olive oil or castor oil to your lashes. These natural oils contain vitamins and minerals that moisturize our lashes . It enables our lashes to be strong and healthy, and prevents breakage. Dip a clean mascara brush into the oil and brush it over your eyelashes.  Leave it overnight and wash it off with lukewarm water.
  • Massage gently. To stimulate the blood circulation around the eyes, massage eyelids gently. This enables our eyelashes to be stronger. Do not rub your eyes as this may damage your lashes. Rubbing the eyes may cause our eyelashes to fall off.  Our eyelashes are very delicate and break easily so be gentle with them.
  • Brush them. Brushing our eyelashes will allow their natural oils to be evenly distributed. This will make our lashes moisturized and will stimulate growth. Gently brush your lashes in upward strokes. Use a brush or comb specifically designed for this purpose.
  • Use an eyelash serum. Eyelash serums prevent our lashes from becoming dry. Serums help moisturize our lashes making them healthy. Try Infinite Lash natural growth serum. It will make your lashes appear thicker, stronger, and longer.
  • Go easy on eyelash curlers. Do not overdo it. Be gentle. Do not use them every single day as they can be harmful to your lashes. When using the curler, do not pull your lashes. Place the curler at the base of your lashes. Clamp the base and lightly press for 3 seconds. Next, go to the middle section of your eyelashes and hold for another 3 seconds. For the final press, place curler at the tip of your lashes and hold for 3 seconds.
  • Avoid using old makeup. Using old makeup may damage our eyes leading to allergies and eye infections. Ensure you throw away old mascaras.  Say goodbye to mascara after 3 to 6 months.
  • Use flower extracts. Just mix together 1 tsp of calendula flower and 1 tsp of cornflower extracts. Use a cotton ball to apply the mixture and rinse it off after. This natural treatment not only makes our lashes healthier and stronger but it also gives our lashes a softer feel.
  • Make some green tea. We know that green tea is good for your  health, since it is rich with antioxidant properties. It aids in the stimulation of the growth of lashes. Prepare green tea and let it cool down. Do not add sugar. Dap a cotton ball into the green tea and apply it to your eyelashes. Leave it for 4-5 minutes and rinse off after.
  • Eat healthy. Having a proper diet will not only make our body healthy but will also make our hair strong and healthy. Include fruits and veggies to your diet to give you the vitamins and nutrients your body and hair need. Eat foods that are rich in protein, vitamins A, B, C, and E to make lashes healthier and stronger. Silicon rich foods such as cucumber, cabbage, asparagus, rice, and oats help improve hair growth and make lashes stronger.
  • Take supplements. Adding biotin to our diet will strengthen our nails and hair, including our eyelashes. Hairfinity hair growth vitamins contain biotin which aids in making our eyelashes stronger.

While you may want to know how to make your eyelashes longer just because you love the way it looks. Eyelashes are also important because they act as a protective shield for our eyes. They help filter the harmful rays of the sun.  They also protect our eyes from small particles such as dust and sand from entering our eyes. These little strands of hair can do wonders, whether it is to protect our eyes or to enhance the beauty of our eyes. Be sure to be gentle with them and give them the proper care they deserve.
