It's all well and good to be born with perfect, fluttery, half-inch long lashes, but not all of us are that lucky! We all want long, healthy lashes, but how do you get them? I'll share three steps to getting longer and healthier lashes.
1. Stop Damage
Before you can start growing, you have to stop practices and habits that stunt the growth of your lashes. And it starts simply: stop touching your lashes. Avoid doing things like rubbing your eyes or touching your eyelashes too often.
Stopping damage also means examining the products you're using on your eyes and how you're using them. Avoiding using lash curlers that can crimp and break your lashes. If you really want to use lash curlers, use a heated one as these won't cause damage. And always remove your eye makeup with a makeup remover before sleeping.
2. Start Healing
After you've stopped any damage to your lashes, you'll want to work on rebuilding them with the right products. This means using mascara that doesn't only volumize, but also rebuilds. A product like Xtreme Lashes Volumizing Mascara contains natural ingredients that promote lash growth AND still creates bold lashes.
To get healthier lashes, on top of a natural and nourishing mascara you'll want to condition your lashes regularly. That's right, condition. Lashes, like the hair on your head, needs to be conditioned. The Xtreme Lashes Protective Coating is a natural conditioner that only needs to be applied 1-2 times a week.
3. Maintain and Grow
Keep on with it! If you want to see results you can't follow these steps for a couple weeks and then go back to using damaging tools and products. And use whatever tools you need to stay on track like a reminder to condition your lashes.
What sorts of things have you done in the past to grow your lashes? Comment and let me know! I would love to hear what strategies you all use.
And if you want longer lashes instantly without damaging your natural lashes, consider getting lash extensions. They're lightweight and follow the natural growth cycle of your own lashes.
