Who doesn’t dream about long, fluttering eyelashes? To achieve this result, you can buy pricey
cosmetic products, expensive mascara, or false lashes. You can even resort to eyelash extensions. But before wasting tons of money, why don’t
you try these cheap and effective ways to make your eyelashes thick and beautiful in
just one month? 1. Combing Such a mundane activity as brushing your eyelashes
can seriously improve their health! The process of combing makes the blood flow
toward your eyelashes. As a result, it stimulates the lashes, and
they start to grow longer. Besides, brushing your eyelashes will remove
all the debris and dust that accumulate on them. To comb your eyelashes, you can buy a special
eyebrow brush or use a thoroughly washed old mascara brush. If you add several drops of vitamin E to the
brush, the result will be even more prominent. Gently comb your eyelashes for 5 minutes twice
a day. You should start from the roots and move the
brush toward the tips of your lashes. 2. Natural essential oils Natural oils — coconut, olive, almond, argan,
jojoba, castor, and so on — contain nourishing fatty acids. They provide the follicles of your eyelashes
with necessary nutrition, thus keeping them happy and healthy. On top of that, essential oils are rich in
antioxidants, which are crucial if you want to have fast lash growth. Let’s see how you can prepare a simple and
inexpensive home eyelash treatment! You’ll need several drops of castor oil, olive
oil, or any of the other oils I mentioned before. Mix it with 1 drop of rosemary, lavender,
grapeseed, or tea tree oil. You can use a clean eyebrow or mascara brush
(or even your finger). Spread the mix of the essential oils onto
your eyelashes before you go to bed, and leave it overnight. Remember to do this procedure every evening
if you want to achieve your goal as soon as possible. 3. Petroleum jelly If you don’t have any essential oils at hand,
petroleum jelly (Vaseline) will do the job. This substance moisturizes and soothes brittle
and dry lashes. It also helps them become thicker and grow
longer. On top of that, by applying petroleum jelly
to your eyelashes, you moisturize your eyelids as well. As a result, your skin stays supple and soft. However, it’s essential for your health to
do this procedure correctly. First of all, apply a generous amount of petroleum
jelly to your brush, and then carefully brush your upper lashes. Be careful not to get any petroleum jelly
in your eyes! After doing this, you can spread the leftovers
onto your eyelid. If your skin is sensitive, it may cause an
unwanted reaction, so apply a bit of petroleum jelly to the back of your hand in advance,
and check your skin for redness a bit later. After tending to your upper lashes, dip your
brush in the petroleum jelly again, and apply it to your lower eyelashes. If you make a habit of doing this procedure
every evening before going to bed, your eyelashes will get enough moisture to not fall out or
break off prematurely. 4. A healthy and balanced diet If you starve yourself or, on the contrary,
love junk food a little too much, you won’t be able to keep your eyelashes healthy. A lack of vitamins will most likely lead to
hair loss and weak, breakable eyelashes. This is why you should eat more products containing
protein: lean meat, poultry, eggs, cheese, milk, and fish, for example. Healthy fats are also very important for your
health. The primary sources of such fats are seeds,
almonds, avocados, and olive oil. Eat more leafy vegetables, kale, cauliflower,
peas, broccoli, tomatoes, and Brussel sprouts. And don’t forget about fruits — they’re
a great source of vitamins! Pay particular attention to guavas, citrus
fruits, apples, blueberries, strawberries, and cranberries. 5. Green tea There are tons of antioxidants in green tea. These antioxidants, as well as vitamins, encourage
lash growth and help your eyelashes become thicker and longer. After all, green tea is the main component
in lots of cosmetic products for hair loss treatment. Despite having such magical properties, a
green tea eyelash treatment is very simple to make. First of all, brew a cup of green tea. Let it cool down, and use a cotton pad to
apply it to your eyelashes. You should do this procedure once or twice
a day. If you do it in the evening, you can leave
the green tea on your eyelashes overnight. If you haven’t used all the tea, pour it into
an airtight container, and leave it in the fridge. You can use this concoction for 3 to 4 days. 6. Aloe vera Both the juice and flesh of aloe vera are
excellent for hair nourishment and health. And if it’s good for your hair, it will also
strengthen your eyelashes! To prepare an aloe treatment for your lashes,
find a fresh aloe leaf, and squeeze it to get a few drops of juice. Use a brush or your fingertips to apply this
juice to your eyelashes, and let it sit there overnight. In the morning, remember to wash it off your
eyelashes. If you want to get a stronger effect, take
1 tbsp of aloe vera juice and mix it with 1 tbsp of olive or castor oil. Put this concoction on your lashes with the
help of an old mascara brush. Wait for 15 minutes before rinsing your eyelashes
off with cool or warm water. It’s best to do this procedure twice a day. 7. Massage This is a simple and effective way to improve
your eyelash nutrition (as well as to stimulate their growth!). First of all, wash your hands with soap. Then pour several drops of coconut or olive
oil onto your fingertips. Wait a bit to let the oil warm up. After that, massage your eyelashes and eyelids
for 3 to 5 minutes. Be very careful not to pull on your eyelashes
or press too hard. Try to do this procedure at least twice a
week. 8. Egg mask Egg whites are rich not only in protein but
also in B-group vitamins and biotin. These elements help to make your hair and
eyelashes stronger and prevent hair loss. Break a fresh egg, and mix its white with
1 tbsp of petroleum jelly or glycerin. Use a brush or cotton swab to cover your eyelashes
with this mixture. For the best results, repeat this procedure
several times a week for a couple of months. It’s crucial to mix the egg whites with glycerin
or petroleum jelly because, otherwise, your eyelashes may become brittle and weak. Also, try to prevent the concoction getting
into your eyes. 9. Cleansing If you leave mascara on your eyelashes when
you go to bed, you can seriously harm them! It’s almost the same as leaving hair spray
on your hair for the whole night. As soon as your eyelashes touch the pillow,
they will become broken or damaged. That’s why you should always take your time
when removing your makeup in the evening. You can use special makeup removers or good
old olive oil, which is a perfect cleanser. 10. Makeup breaks Every now and then, go for makeup breaks. The problem is that some mascaras, such as,
let’s say, waterproof ones, have particular components that make lashes dry and fragile. Let your eyelashes rest from several layers
of mascara once or twice a week. In addition, get rid of your mascara every
3 to 6 months, and buy a new one. It will help you to avoid eye infections. 11. Finally, here are several more useful tips! – Be careful not to pull on your eyelashes. You can accidentally do this while curling
them. Unfortunately, eyelash roots aren’t very strong,
and they can easily fall out. – No treatment can provide you with instant
results. You will need to wait 2 or 3 weeks to notice
the first positive changes. This peculiarity is connected with eyelash
growth phases. – If you take care of your eyelashes every
day, you’ll improve their overall condition and make them healthier and stronger. But you should take into account that you
still won’t be able to change your genes. – The average person loses 4 eyelashes a day. If you’ve noticed that you lose more than
that, visit your doctor to check your thyroid gland. If you follow these recommendations, you’ll
notice that your eyelashes have become visibly longer and thicker in a month. On top of that, they will also get stronger
and won’t fall out as much. Do you know any other ways to make your eyelashes
