How To Get Longer Eyelashes
My story is probably similar to where you are right now. I have tried quite a few different methods of getting longer eyelashes. I would have to say that my eyelashes are probably the most stubborn as they refuse to grow when using home remedies that have been said to work. Here are a few different methods that I have tried that you may have success with. After much trial and error, I did end up with longer eyelashes in the end. However, I’m saving that story for last, or can skip to the end now.
Long eyelashes fast
So, I have to admit that I’m guilty in wanting a fast solution. So I of course glued on fake eyelashes for an instant eyelash boost, but I think we all know how that looks. It’ll get the job done, but it’s a hassle, it’s messy, and it doesn’t look natural. I will say that, the final thing that helped me get longer eyelashes did work pretty fast. But again, I’m saving the best for last. With that being said, here’s some remedies that I have tried.
You can use vitamin E on a soft bristled eyelash comb. Just apply directly to your eyelashes and brush about 3-5 times, twice per day, until you see results. I tried brushing my eyelashes with vitamin E for about two months and unfortunately did not see any results. However, I have heard that other people have had success which is obviously why I gave it a try. It doesn’t cost much, it’s just an investment of time. I’ve also read that using lemon juice instead of vitamin E works, but the thought of getting lemon juice in my eyes sounds quite painful. If you feel up to the challenge, go for it.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar anyone? Apple cider vinegar is said to have many health benefits. Ingesting apple cider vinegar is said to detoxify the body, whiten teeth, relieve allergies and acid reflux, aid in weight loss, balance pH, ease varicose veins, tone skin, balance blood sugar, lower BP, help with digestion, and help boost healthy hair growth including eyelashes. As you can see, it goes beyond just improving your eyelashes. However, it should be taken with precaution and should also be diluted with water. I started taking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with a glass of water once per night and I have to say I did reap some of the benefits from it. However, longer eyelashes were not one of the benefits. So, on to something else I went.
This isn’t as much of a solution as it is a band aid for the problem of having short stubby eyelashes. It does give immediate results, but that doesn’t include longer eyelashes. There’s quite a few companies that sell volumizing mascara to make your eyelashes look fuller or more lush. I have tried a few different brands including Maybelline, Dior and Covergirl. In all, they did look a bit fuller, but they did not give me longer eyelashes which is what I was really after. Plus, volumizing mascara tends to get a little chunky in my opinion. There are definitely less messy alternatives.
So, if you are still reading, then you are probably interested in what finally did the trick for me. I cannot begin to tell you how amazed I was with the results. My sister in law had been ranting and raving about something that boosts eyelash growth. Not only did it help in how to get longer eyelashes, but it made them thick and full as well. The main reason I decided to try her recommendation was the before and after pictures she showed me, along with the 60 day – empty bottle – money back guarantee. So far, I had not spent too much on everything I had tried. So the idea of shelling out $99 or more definitely made me think twice, more like 4 or 5 times. But again, the before and after pictures showed that it was guaranteed to work. Aside from the pictures, I remembered what my sister in law’s eyelashes looked like compared to now. I gotta tell you, her eyelashes look amazing.
Here’s a before and after photo of my sister in law’s associate’s husband. He treated only one eye instead of both to be a walking example. It’s very simple to use, just brush on the serum before bed every night. Before you know it, you will see the difference too. I loved it so much, I started telling all of my friends and family about it. Now, I receive compliments from all of my girlfriends and co-workers. They always say how jealous they are and how they wish they had longer eyelashes too.
