5 Ways to Lengthen Eyelashes Naturally

You know those eyelashes lengthening products that promise to lengthen your lashes but will potentially darken your irises permanently? Yikes. Those scare me. No thanks. However, there are a ton of home remedies out there to try that may naturally lengthen your lashes!

1. Oils

Olive oil and castor oil are both said to lengthen your lashes when applied with a clean mascara wand and left on overnight. Whichever you have on hand should do the trick. After 2-3 months of consistent application you should start to see fuller, longer and healthier lashes. To optimize your results, add lemon peel to your oil. You’ll want to let your lemon and oil infuse for about a week before using.

2. Brush your lashes

Brushing your lashes with a soft bristled lash brush daily may stimulate growth. You’ll never want to brush them harshly or for more than 10 minutes as that could result in your lashes falling out. Keep up this routine until you start to see the growth you are looking for.

3. Petroleum Jelly

Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline) applied to lashes with a clean lash comb or mascara wand will help moisturize your lashes and help them to appear thicker and healthier. The increased moisture may help stimulate the follicles and help those lashes grow!

4. Vitamins

The same way vitamins, like biotin or Hair Skin and Nails, can help your hair to grow faster and healthier, they can also help to grow your eyelashes too!

5. Coconut Oil

If you haven’t tried coconut oil on your hair, you’ve got to! It makes it so soft and shiny, and somehow it makes my blond hair brighter! While you are at it, apply it to your lashes. You can melt it  (which should only take a few seconds in the microwave) into a liquid and apply it with a clean mascara wand or a cotton ball. Keep it out of your eyes, and don’t apply it while it’s still hot from melting.
