Eyebrows and eyelashes not only beautify your eyes but also enhance your overall looks. Just imagine a person with patchy or no eyebrows, or missing eyelashes. What sort of image comes in your mind? Whatever it is, I am sure it would not be attractive and appealing. There are several reasons why a person can lose eyelashes and eyebrows, from medical conditions to poor diet to unhealthy lifestyle. Most women lose eyelash and eyebrow density as they age. While any damage caused to these beauty treasures due to medical conditions needs a proper treatment, loss of eyebrow and eyelash density due to poor diet and unhealthy lifestyle can be effectively avoided and reversed by following simple tips and tricks.

5 Tips for Your Eyebrows and Eyelashes:

Here we will share with you simple ways how to care your eyebrows and eyelashes.

  1. Never Go To Bed With Makeup On:

We all wear makeup to further enhance the beauty of eyes. But going to bed with mascara and eyebrow gel on can be extremely damaging for these eye decorations. These beauty products are stuffed with harsh chemicals leaving which on overnight can not only damage them but also prevent them from growing.

  1. Use Oil Based Makeup Remover:

Always go for good quality, oil based eye makeup removers, and if possible buy one with dual action formula. Quality makeup removers wipe off cosmetic products without rubbing or ripping off eyebrow and eyelash hairs. Soak a clean cotton pad in the makeup removing product and apply it softly to the eyebrows and eyelashes counting for ten and then wipe off without rubbing. Repeat if necessary.

  1. Moisturize Your Lashes And Brows:

Like the hair on the scalp, eyelash and eyebrow hairs also need ample moisturization to remain in their best shape. There are numerous over-the-counter moisturizing products available in the market for eyebrows and eyelashes but why to go for those harsh products when you can prepare one at home. Mix one part of castor oil with one part Vitamin E and two parts of Vaseline to form a smooth paste. Apply this mixture onto your lashes and brows once a week with the help of old, clean mascara brush. Prevent eye contact.

  1. Consume Enough Protein:

Hair cells are purely made of protein and lacking this essential nutrient in your diet directly affects scalp and facial hairs, including eyelashes and eyebrows. Eat foods rich in protein such as eggs, milk, lean meat, chicken, fish, legumes and lentils. You can also benefit from protein supplements but it is always recommended to get your due share from natural sources – plant and animal sources.

  1. Avoid Quick Fixes:

Most women use eyelash extensions and false eyelashes to imitate thicker and longer lashes. These products do help you beautify your eyes temporarily, but in the long run they can ruin your natural lashes. So, avoid these quick fixes and wear your natural eyelashes with confidence.

Natural Remedies for Eyelash and Eyebrow Growth:

  1. Castor Oil: Take a clean, old mascara stick and dip it in the castor oil. Ward off any excess oil by tapping the want and carefully apply the castor oil on the eyelashes, making sure lashes are covered with it from root to tip. Then using the same brush, apply the oil onto the eyebrows, starting from inner corner to out. Leave castor oil on overnight and wash off in the morning with lukewarm water and mild cleanser. Repeat this daily for 2-3 months.
  2. Aloe Vera Gel: Apply fresh aloe gel to your eyebrows and eyelashes regularly and you will notice significant improvement in length and thickness of the hairs.
