Alternate ways to get naturally long lashes apart from eyelash extensions


Getting eyelash extensions for making your lashes appear longer and thicker is currently gaining huge popularity.

It is a treatment that involves attaching new lashes to each of your real lashes using glue and making each one longer and adding more lashes to your lash line to make them appear thicker.

This treatment gives you long lashes which last about 3 to 4 weeks, after which they begin to come off one by one, and you will have to get another treatment to replace the lost lashes.

Eyelash extensions cost about $100 to $400 generally, and some reputed places charge even more for them, and you have to get them redone about every 3-4 weeks.

This treatment gives you longer lashes and thicker lashes almost instantly after the treatment, but it also has various drawbacks.

The first one is, of course, the cost of the treatment, which is a reasonable investment if you work in an industry in which your career depends on the way you look, such as the entertainment industry. But spending around 300$ every 3rd or 4th week is not a practical choice to make for most of us.

Apart from the expenses, it is kind of inconvenient to fix an appointment every 3rd week, which may make you cut time for something that may be more vital or important for you. Having eyelash extensions can be a little high maintenance as you have to restrict the use of certain products or only use a particular set of products and thus you may have to spend some extra money for such items.

Owing to these drawbacks, many women are turning towards alternative ways to get the naturally long and thick eyelashes to look for themselves.

Thankfully, there are many effective and proven ways that have been tried and tested for promoting the growth of your eyelashes naturally so that you get long and beautiful eyelashes without going out of your way for getting them.

Provide nutrients to your body for Boosting Eyelash Growth:

If you want natural eyelash growth, the first place to improve is your diet, as the nutrients that we offer our body plays a huge role in various functions of the body, including our eyelash growth.

Food items such as fish and flax seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids which are great for the growth of your hair on your head, on your eyebrows as well as the growth of your lashes.

If you eat lots of food items and vegetables you will be giving your body various types of vitamins and minerals including Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin C, iron, and magnesium, which will help in preventing premature loss of your eyelashes and even make them grow thick and strong. Food items that promote blood circulation across the whole body such as spinach, watermelon, and even chocolate are good for your eyelash growth.

Apart from focusing on eating, you could also try drinking water and green tea for giving your body a little extra push for luscious eyelash growth.

Aid your Body for Eyelash Growth by Applying Eyelash Boosting Products on them:

After providing nutrients to your body from the inside, you will still have to try out ways to reach your eyelash externally so that they grow long and thick naturally.

You must have heard of Careprost Bimatoprost Eyelash Growth Boosting Serum which gives you longer, thicker, and darker eyelashes within 3-4 weeks. This product is available in most local pharmacies and as it is an FDA-approved treatment for eyelash growth, its safety, as well as effectiveness, are assured.

Apart from medical treatments, there are various types of oils that can be applied to the eyelashes, and even though there are few medical studies to support the claim that oils help in the promotion of eyelash growth, there are thousands of people who swear by their effectiveness.

There are oils such as coconut oil and castor oil which you can take on the tip of your fingers and apply on your lashes. You can use other oils as well such as lavender oil, rose oil, and even tea tree oil. But you will have to dilute these oils by mixing them in carrier oils such as castor oil or coconut oil.

Even if you don’t see visible eyelash growth after applying the oils to your lashes, you will get softer lashes and they will break off less easily making your lashes complete their growth cycle.

You can also apply petroleum jelly, which is more commonly known by the brand name Vaseline to your lashes for making them stronger. Petroleum jelly has the properties to seal in the moisture of your lashes so that they don’t dry out easily, and even adds a subtle shine to it.

No matter which product you use for your eyelashes, be it various essential oils or Careprost eyelash growth solution, make sure to give it some time to work, and please test for an allergic reaction by doing a patch test first.
