6 Tips for Growing Great Eyelashes

112453697_sHealthy eyelashes improve the appearance of your eyes, but getting long, luscious lashes is not always easy – mascara is messy, false eyelashes are finicky, and eyelash curlers are simply torture! Furthermore, wearing mascara or false eyelashes are not always an option. Fortunately, you can grow your own thick, gorgeous lashes that never need heavy makeup, scary curlers or falsies that can fall off in the blink of an eye.


Growing beautiful eyelashes, or protecting the eyelashes you already have, is easier than you might think.

6 Tips for Growing Great Lashes

1. Improve your diet

A well-balanced diet improves your overall health – including the health of your eyelashes. Incorporating healthy fats and proteins, such as those from beans, fish, and eggs, promote the growth of healthy eyelashes.


2. Massage your eyelids

Massage promotes blood circulation to the tissues that grow and support eyelashes. Be gentle when massaging your eyelids and eyelashes, though, to avoid damaging the delicate tissues in your eyelids.


3. Consider daily supplements

Taking collagen or biotin can stimulate the growth of hair, including eyelashes. Collagen provides your eyelashes with the amino acids they need to grow thick and healthy. Biotin works by strengthening keratin, which is the protein that makes up hair.


4. Remove mascara before bed

Be sure to remove the mascara completely before retiring for the night. Mascara can enhance the appearance of eyelashes, but wearing mascara at night can cause inflammation, infection and even the loss of your eyelashes.


Mascara can make your eyelashes more prone to breakage at night. In addition to making your eyelashes appear darker and thicker, mascara makes your eyelashes stiff. Laying your head on your pillow can crunch your eyelashes on the surface of the pillow, causing the already-brittle lashes to break.


5. Be gentle when applying or removing makeup

Eyelashes are delicate and vulnerable to damage, particularly when you apply or remove makeup. Avoid pulling at your eyelashes or scrubbing your eyelids when removing makeup.


6. Use Latisse Eyelash Enhancer

Latisse Eyelash Enhancer promotes the growth of longer, thicker, darker eyelashes that really enhance the appearance of your eyes. Latisse Eyelash Enhancer produces measurable eyelash growth in as little as four weeks – without the use of messy makeup, sticky false eyelashes, or the torment of eyelash curlers.
