There are many options available to increase the length and thickness of your eyelashes, whether you want to grow them naturally or if you are interested in trying out new products. Andrea Starr, a dermatologist at Eyestarr Lash and Brow Boutique NYC, and a lash expert share their tips and tricks for getting the best results. The first step in your journey to longer lashes is to make sure you wash off all your makeup thoroughly. This includes waterproof mascara.
Latisse can be recommended by a doctor to grow eyelashes in order to treat hypotrichosis (excessively thin eyelashes). This prescription eyelash solution is applied to the upper lash line with a disposable, sterilized applicator. Patients who used the solution according to directions have reported thicker and more long eyelashes. Before beginning any new treatment, patients with glaucoma or other medical conditions should consult their doctor.
Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E oil is a great option for longer eyelashes. The results can be seen in two to four weeks. You must adhere to a strict schedule and not skip a week. Otherwise, you may risk damaging your eyelashes.
Coconut oil is one of the best ingredients for nourishing eyelashes. Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which helps the hair follicles absorb nutrients. This oil also hydrates the eyelashes and helps prevent them from falling out. It is a natural lubricant and helps prevent dandruff and fungal diseases.
Castor oil is a natural ingredient that can help you grow long eyelashes. It prevents breakage and improves luster. However, it can take several months to get full results. This is why you need to choose the product carefully. You should choose clear or Jamaican black castor oil. To avoid side effects, it should be cold-pressed and hexane free.
Olive oil contains numerous nutrients, vitamins, and other components that will strengthen your eyelashes and promote their growth. Olive oil can be used to replenish the nutrients that are missing in many people’s diets. To begin the olive oil treatment, you should take a small brush and coat it with the oil. The brush should be small enough that it can be applied to the lash without dripping.
Raw Coconut Cream
Coconut oil is an excellent natural ingredient to promote eyelash growth. Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids and natural antimicrobial qualities, making it a great product for eyelashes. It’s also great for removing eye makeup. Coconut oil can also improve the health of your eyelashes, making them appear thicker and fuller. Coconut oil can make your skin feel oily so be careful.
Green tea contains an ingredient called epigallocatechin-3-gallate, which promotes hair growth of eyelashes. It also contains Vitamin E, an antioxidant that reduces oxidative damage. Tocotrienol compounds are also found in this substance, which can increase hair strand count and contribute to longer eyelashes. Alternatively, you can also take a daily dose of Vitamin E as an oral supplement. Ensure you consult your physician to get the right dosage.
