Most of us have lusted after gorgeous, lush lashes. If you’ve already been blessed with a thick fringe of lashes, lucky you! If not, read on for how to cheat a little and achieve lashes that will make all women envious.
Believe it or not, your eyelashes aren’t just there for cosmetic reasons. Eyelashes protect your eyes from dust and debris and are also sensitive to touch, so they provide a warning when things get too close to your eyes. Eyelashes grow just like the hair on your body or head. Each eyelash takes about seven or eight weeks to fully grow out and has a life cycle of about three months before it naturally falls out. Wearing incorrectly applied eyelash extensions or tugging at them to get mascara off can cause your lashes to break or fall off before they should.
To keep your lashes looking their best and encourage them to grow, you need to look after them. Never rub your eyes as the friction can cause your lashes to break. If you use an eyelash curler, make sure you always use it before you apply mascara and be as gentle as possible. Try to comb your lashes before your mascara dries to avoid breaking them. And please be gentle when you are removing your makeup! Diet is another thing that can keep your lashes in tip top form. A diet rich in protein, vitamin B and zinc will keep your lashes strong, thick and shiny.
