Long and luscious lashes are coveted by many, and many have gone to great lengths (pun intended!) for longer lashes. There are so many eyelash enhancers in the market that promise to grow and strengthen your eyelashes. These products usually come with a hefty price and potentially harmful ingredients. And many may have disturbing side effects such as permanent eye discoloration, allergic reactions and even stunting the growth of your lashes.
Nutrition and hair health go hand in hand for healthy hair growth. So, if a person isn’t getting enough fat-soluble vitamins, b-vitamins, zinc and collagen, eyelashes and hair would suffer.
Here is a natural way to achieve the ‘eyelash extension’ lift with oils from your kitchen and pantry. Made up of only three ingredients, this eyelash serum is a safe, natural and effective way to nourish your lashes for growth. Let’s look at the benefit of the ingredients!
Castor Oil is comprised of vitamin E, minerals, and protein. It is effective for thickening lashes. It also prevents them from breaking, and it triggers the growth of eyelashes and hair. Castor oil helps to naturally moisturise and rehydrate the areas it’s applied. They also penetrate deep into the skin and work from the inside and out. You can even massage castor oil into your scalp before bed for better hair growth.
Coconut Oil serves as a natural lubricant for your eyes. It penetrates your eyelash follicles and stimulates hair growth. The fatty acid found in coconut oil has antifungal and anti-bacterial properties that will protect your eyes from infections that limit hair growth.
