We’ve always wondered how professional makeup artists work their magic. And no matter how hard we try, our own makeup just never seems to come out quite as nice—but that’s not the case anymore!
Check out the video bellow and find out how the do the magic trick.
And if you’re worried about your thin eyelashes or scanty growth?
Well, you are not the only one. Many people want thicker eyelashes. They make a person’s eyes look even more beautiful and attractive.
Factors like genetics, age, certain medical conditions, a nutritional deficiency, an eye infection or hormonal changes in the body often contribute to thin eyelashes. Rubbing your eyes roughly and not removing eye makeup at the end of the day can also cause the delicate hairs of your lashes to fall out.
Here are 5 top home remedies for thicker eyelashes.
1. Castor Oil
The powerful follicle-stimulating and nourishing castor oil can help you enjoy lustrous and voluminous lashes. It also helps fight micro-organisms that hamper growth.
Use a clean brush or a cotton swab to apply castor oil on your lashes before going to bed. You can also add a few drops of vitamin E oil to the castor oil before applying. Leave it on overnight, then rinse it off with lukewarm water in the morning.
Alternatively, mix together 2 tablespoons each of castor oil and fresh aloe vera gel. Apply it on your eyelashes using a cotton swab. Leave it on overnight, then rinse it off the next morning.
Follow either of these remedies daily for 2 to 3 months.
2. Olive Oil
Olive oil is a well-known natural remedy for thicker hair growth as well as eyelashes. This oil is rich in vitamin E and oleic acid that nourish and add volume to your eyelashes. It also helps keep the lashes dark.
Dip a clean, old mascara stick or simply a cotton swab in warm olive oil.
Before going to bed, apply the oil carefully on your lashes, just as you would apply mascara.
Leave it on overnight, then wash it off with lukewarm water in the morning.
Repeat this remedy daily for a few months until you get the desired result.
3. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is a wonderful home remedy that can help you get long, thick eyelashes. It contains several vitamins and nutrients that promote the growth of your lashes. Moreover, it helps keep your eyelashes moisturized.
Using a clean, old mascara wand, apply some fresh aloe vera gel on your lashes before going to bed. Leave it on overnight, then rinse it off with warm water the next morning.
Alternatively, mix together 1 tablespoon each of aloe vera gel and jojoba oil along with 1 teaspoon of chamomile infusion. Apply this mixture on your lashes twice a day using a clean, old mascara wand. Wait 15 minutes, then rinse it off with warm water.
4. Lemon Peels
You can also use lemon peels to add volume to your eyelashes. The peels are rich in vitamins C and B, folic acid and other nutrients that promote the growth of eyelashes. Also, when infused in olive or castor oil, they will help enhance the cleansing and stimulating properties of the oil.
Put 1 tablespoon of moderately dried lemon peels in a container.
Pour enough olive or castor oil into the container, so that the peels get soaked.
Allow it to sit for a couple of weeks.
Using an old mascara stick, apply the oil on your eyelashes before going to bed.
Leave it on overnight, then wash it off with warm water in the morning.
Follow this remedy for a few months to get encouraging results.
5. Green Tea
Green tea is another effective home remedy for longer, thicker eyelashes. It is rich in flavonoids that stimulate the growth of your lashes.
Prepare a cup of unsweetened green tea, and set it aside to cool down.
Use a cotton swab to apply the green tea on your lashes, from the roots to the tips.
Allow it to sit for 15 minutes, then rinse it off with cool water.
Do this twice daily for 2 to 3 months.
Note: When using green tea, make sure it does not get in your eyes.
