Are you the type of person who is passionate about beauty and taking care of your looks? If so, as many of us are, having eyelashes that don’t look their best no matter what you do can be devastating. In these modern times, looking and feeling smart and groomed can impact on our entire lives – from the social to the professional sphere – so it’s no wonder that brittle, sparse, or stubby eyelashes are a problem for many busy people.
We’d probably all love to have healthy, luscious lashes, ones that are full of health and vitality meaning they don’t fall out easily, grow rapidly, and really enhance the eyes. But if you aren’t lucky enough to have natural eyelashes that are healthy and attractive, where do you start? If you’ve been struggling with problem eyelashes for a while, you’re probably always on the look-out for effective methods to help them grow…have you tried any of these?
1. Changing your diet
You may not realise it, but what you eat can have a startling effect on the how long and thick your eyelashes grow. As with many things to do with your appearance, feeding and nourishing your physical self from the inside is the ideal place to start if you’re looking for dazzling lashes. There are specific vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients we get from food that either promote hair growth directly, or support other tasks and functions within our bodies that support longer, thicker, and stronger eyelashes. Here are just some of them:
- Oily fish – a fantastic combination of protein and Omega-3. Protein promotes hair growth and keeps your hair (including eyelashes!) as string and healthy as possible, and Omega-3 fatty acids are great for circulation, which of course brings more oxygen and other valuable nutrients to your lashes.
- Sweet potatoes – packed full of beta-carotene which provides your body with vitamin A (and therefore promoting hair growth), try swapping out your regular white potatoes for the sweet orange variety!
- Lentils – these little legumes really are mini powerhouses or vitamins and minerals! Containing the all-important protein, they also provide you with iron, zinc, and biotin, all minerals that will help your eyelashes grow long and strong.
2. Lash-lengthening mascaras
With a range of lash-lengthening mascaras on the market, to fit in with all budgets, a temporary movie star eye has never been more accessible! In fact, you can find a mascara to suit just about any ‘look’ you want. Whether it’s longer, thicker, curlier, darker, if you want big and bold, or more of a natural look – there will be a mascara on the market that’s suitable for you. The only problem with using mascara to get longer, more luscious eyelashes as that once you remove your make-up, your lashes are back to normal.
3. Eyelash extensions
Professionally applied eyelash extensions can certainly look incredible, and really give you that glamorous look you’re after! For (almost) instant gratification combined with a stunning look, they’re a great choice for longer more luscious lashes. The only problem is, the application, upkeep, and after effects can be less than desirable! For a start, application takes a few hours and you have to go back regularly for maintenance, generally every four to six weeks, but many people choose to go even more regularly than that to keep them looking 100% all of the time. Even then, after a while the extensions can start to look tattered and tired – you have to REALLY take care of them. And when you do eventually have them professionally removed, they can leave your natural lashes shorter and sparser.
4. False eyelashes
False eyelashes are certainly less expensive and labour intensive than semi-permanent eyelash extensions, but of course they’re even more temporary. They’re ideal if you’re looking for more of a dramatic effect than mascara can give, but don’t want to go through the painstaking process of having eyelash extensions applied. Just remember, if you don’t wear them regularly you might have trouble applying them properly, meaning you face the embarrassment of losing one or having one start to travel across your face– not great if your intention was to look amazing for a special night out – so practice first!
5. 4xMore Eyelash Serum
4xMore isn’t just a beauty product, it has been designed to give users the most spectacular eyelashes without the need for extensions or even makeup, and the scientifically proven ingredients mean you’ll see the results in as little as four weeks of use!
The serum works by not only making your lashes look amazing, it makes them stronger and healthier from within as well. Using it every day means you’ll see unprecedented length and volume that lasts longer as well as lashes that grow much faster than usual. Contact lens wearer or allergy sufferer? That’s no problem, because the formula is completely hypoallergenic with ingredients that won’t irritate or affect your sensitive eyes.
You may be wondering why we called the serum 4xMore – it’s quite simple really. The results you can expect when you use the serum twice a day is an incredible four times more eyelash magnificence, in no time at all! You’ll start to notice some amazing results within about three to four weeks, but the really incredible effects will show after three months of use. That’s when 4xMore really lives up to its name, and you’ll be enjoying long, thick, full, and beautiful eyelashes, and wondering why on earth you didn’t discover the product earlier!
The science behind the key ingredient of the serum actually comes from ophthalmologists in the USA. A type of eye drops they used on patients become known for giving the lucky beneficiaries lush and long eyelashes – which is why the ingredient was added to 4xMore and has proved to be just as effective, and without any unpleasant or undesirable side effects.
