Nothing is more of an eye-opener than having long, thick, curled lashes. Beautiful lashes are a sign of health and youth. Here’s a few tips to help you achieve lash beauty and longevity.
Open your eyes to good health.
Lashes are hair and for shiny, strong hair, whether from the top of your head or the tips of your eye lids, both require good health and vitamins. Studies have shown Vitamin B, especially with Biotin, can help not only increase hair growth and strength but is also good for finger nails. The best way to get more Biotin is in your diet. Boost Biotin by eating foods rich in it, like cauliflower, salmon, bananas, carrots, egg yolks, sardines, legumes and mushrooms.
Curling lashes opens the eyes and makes lashes look longer. Position an eyelash curler as close to the roots of your lashes as possible without pinching your skin. Clamp down gently, and hold in place for a few seconds. Move the curler a little farther out, and very lightly press again. Repeat once or twice more, each time moving the curler up the lash. If your lashes are thin, brush on a coat of primer. Avoid curling daily as this can stress lashes and NEVER curl with mascara on!
Apply mascara from the roots up, gently sweeping side to side until you reach the ends. The roots are important, so spend time to distribute evenly.
Brush up with a lash brush (old cleaned mascara wand works great), or comb to the ends of the lashes to create a more feathery look.
Lash serums and primers: Lash serums are designed to treat lashes, providing healthy vitamins and protective ingredients. Primers are used to make lashes larger and are applied as the first layer on your lashes before mascara.
