Nevertheless, taking care of the eyelashes is just as important as precisely accentuating them. So here we are going to present some basic beauty tips and tricks about taking care of your eyelashes properly.
First of all, we would like to state that as any part of our body, eyelashes also reflect the condition of our organism and in case of noticing problems like falling lashes, you’d better consult with the doctor for possible body problems.
Thus, the first and most important advice is to always remove makeup before going to bed. Despite the fact that sometimes it is quite difficult because of different reasons, in case of not doing so, you risk harming your lashes and gradually losing them.
Natural oils, like castor oil, can be ideal treatments for your lashes. Applying castor oil on the lashes for 1 hour every day and then washing it off is quite a good idea. If your eyelashes are falling and breaking rapidly, you may use this treatment every evening, leaving it on until morning.
On the other hand, castor oil may also be mixed with other ingredients. For example, by mixing equal proportions of butter and rum, we get a perfect means of stimulating lash growth. And adding a drop of oil solution of vitamin A or E (in a ratio of 1 to 4), you will be able to nourish the lashes and adorn them with a healthy shine.
Castor oil may also be used for darkening lashes. Mix it in equal proportions with carrot juice or strong black tea to get the effect. Another great way of taking care of eyelashes is mixing one teaspoon of castor oil and burdock. You will also need to add three drops of vitamin E and aloe. The final mixture should be applied daily at night for at least a month.
Sea buckthorn oil also has a positive influence on lashes. It gifts them with softness, making them smoother and fluffier. It can be used on its own or in a combo with other means.
You may stop lash loss by mixing two tablespoons of sea buckthorn and burdock oils and pouring this mixture into a tablespoon of crushed dog-rose. After leaving it in a dark place for at least 7 days (preferably 10), then straining it, you will have a daily means for improving the condition of your eyelashes.
The diversity of oils suitable for taking care of eyelashes is huge, including grape seed oil, peach kernel oil, wheat germ oil, linseed oil, almond, and coconut. Also, you may use any natural oils and oil extracts of calendula and chamomile. They can be used alone and in combinations with other natural products.
In conclusion, we would like to say a few words about how to properly apply the products taking care of your eyelashes. For this it is best to use an old mascara brush, naturally after carefully pre-washing it. You may apply the products like mascara, so that the full length of the lashes gets covered with the product.
So basically, it’s not that hard and time-consuming and you really can manage to have healthy and strong eyelashes in case of doing everything correctly.
