How to Get Thicker Lashes

September 2, 2022

Following the trends and recommendations of popular beauty experts, modern fashionistas are increasingly relying on natural beauty and taking care of their own eyelashes, since extended artificial doll lashes have long been out of date.

The editorial team of The Fashiongton Post will tell you today about effective ways of growing eyelashes, strengthening them, and helping to give them the desired thickness.

Natural oils

To awaken the hair follicles and stimulate the growth of eyelashes, you can use vegetable oils. They are rich in many vitamins, antioxidants and beneficial acids that penetrate deep into the hairs, nourishing and strengthening them from the inside.

The first assistants here would be castor, olive and coconut oils. You can mix them together or use separately. It’s easy to do — pour a few drops of oil on a special brush or cotton swab, and then apply to the lashes, as if stained with mascara. Leave the product for half an hour, and then rinse with warm water or remove with paper towels. Repeat the procedure two or three times a week for a month, and soon you will notice the wow-effect.

You can also enhance the result by adding a couple of drops of liquid vitamin E to the oil. It helps to remove impurities and open the pores, so that the hairs breathe and grow better. Mix the component with one or more oils in a clean tube from an old mascara, and then comb the eyelashes with this composition with a brush.

These masks are best done in the evening or before bedtime. But keep in mind that castor oil should not be left overnight. Its prolonged exposure can lead to irritation of the mucous membranes and delicate skin of the eyelids. Because of this, you run the risk of waking up in the morning with reddened eyes and swelling. It is also advisable not to lubricate the eyelashes with oils on the days when you apply cosmetics to the eyelids, otherwise it will simply smudge and float.

If you regularly arrange such beauty procedures at home during a month — you will receive a reward for your efforts and your lashes become longer and more magnificent.
