Do you envy people who have gorgeous thick eyelashes that extend far beyond their lids so they need very little mascara, if any, to accentuate their eyes? There are many options that will bring you closer to the eyelash growth you desire. Among eyelash growth tricks and treatments, there are even medical treatments that will grow your eyelashes in addition to homeopathic options. If all else fails, there’s mascara and even false eyelashes and eyelash extensions that can help you achieve the look you’re seeking!
Homeopathic Eyelash Growth Promoters
Moisturizing your eyelashes with castor, olive, coconut, avocado, sweet almond, linen, rose-hip, sesame, argan, or burdock root oil can help to moisturize and nourish your eyelashes. Simply wet cotton swab or a cotton ball or pad with the oil or combination of oils of your choosing and spread the oil over your eyelashes prior to going to bed. If you plan on staying in for the day and won’t be applying make-up, you can apply the oils then, too! Doing this regularly will help you to better grow your eyelashes longer and stronger, as applying these oils improves the overall health of your lashes.
Vitamin E and aloe vera are two other homeopathic remedies that will assist your lashes with growing both longer and thicker. You can obtain Vitamin E oil or Vitamin E in capsules and simply brush the liquid onto your lashes with a lash brush and this will help to strengthen and nourish your lashes so they can grow stronger, longer, and thicker!
Green Tea is another viable homeopathic option for growing your eyelashes longer and stronger. You simply need to apply cooled green tea to your eyelashes with a cotton pad, ball, or swab. Green tea contains antioxidants and caffeine that will help with continued growth or your existing lashes and even new eyelash growth!
Eyelash Serum & Cosmetic Eyelash Products to Promote Growth
One of the simplest cosmetics available to help grow lashes long and strong is petroleum jelly! Women have been using this product to make their lashes longer and stronger since the advent of Vaseline. There’s a reason why this product has been in existence for so long and exists in most medicine cabinets, worldwide.
Lash Accelerator mascara is a viable option to speed up eyelash growth. Basically, you apply your mascara to enhance the natural beauty of your eyelashes while the built in eyelash serum promotes growth while you carry on with your life! Top eyelash growth serums can also be purchased alone, so you can wear them either under make-up or when you go to bed or when you’re not planning to apply any make-up since the vast majority of them go on clear.
These serums use various ingredients that promote eyelash growth by moisturizing, conditioning, and strengthening your lashes. Some vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other materials that are purported to benefit your eyelashes are Biotin, Vitamin B5, B7, and H, Co-enzyme R, amino acids, and zinc. These are typical ingredients found in many eyelash serums to strengthen your eyelash follicles to promote eyelash growth.
Medical Eyelash Growth Intervention
Taking Biotin is helpful in facilitating faster, longer, and stronger eyelash growth. Biotin is a B vitamin that promotes rapid hair, eyebrow, and eyelash growth. A good dosage to begin with to boost the growth of your lashes is a 5,000 mg. Biotin supplement.
If vitamins, homeopathic, and topical remedies don’t help your eyelashes grow, Lattice was approved the FDA in December 2008. This prescription eyelash lengthening agent grows thin and/or sparse eyelashes long and strong! Originally developed as a glaucoma drug, Latisse comes in eye drops that can be dropped into your eyes. Using Lattisse eye drops reduces the pressure in your eyes and through this mechanism aids your eyelashes with growth.
