4 Things You Didn’t Know About Your Eyelashes

July 17, 2012

By and large, women value their eyelashes as much as they value their hair and nails. Various supplements are now available to make them appear more voluminous. A Connecticut Latisse Eyelash Enhancer could even provide you with lashes that will greatly emphasize your eyes, one of your most important assets.

To help you understand the science behind fuller and firmer lashes, read on below for some facts about your eyelashes.

They’re Like Your Skin and Your Hair, Too!

Your eyelashes are made of around 90 percent keratin. Keratin is a protein which can be also found in your skin and nails. It is therefore safe to conclude that what’s good for your skin is also good for your eyelashes.

Eyelashes are like the hair in your head. They love to be conditioned for them to be more flexible and healthier. To condition your eyelashes, apply almond, coconut or olive oil through a cotton swab. You can do this twice or thrice a week at bedtime. Make sure to brush across the roots and comb it all the way into the rest of the eyelashes. A cotton ball can help remove the rest of the nourishing oil.

They Need Some Tender Loving Care

For them to grow and nourish, they also need to breathe and have enough time to rejuvenate. To keep your lashes from getting damaged and drying out, do not go to bed without removing your mascara. Avoid tugging or pulling them out too to prevent them from falling out. Go slow with the fake eyelashes as well since they can cause your lashes to fall prematurely.

Go Slow on the Mascara

The rule of thumb is to apply less than three coats of mascara to avoid the clumpy look and make them appear more natural. Also, when trying to moisten the wand, avoid the commonly used method of pumping it. This will only cause the mascara to dry faster as it forces air out into the tube.

Your Daily Diet Matters, Too

You do not have to entirely change your diet for thicker and longer eyelashes. Fatty acids such as Omega-3s and Omega-6s are extremely helpful to grow healthier lashes. These fatty acids are not produced by the body so may have to obtain them from food sources such as whole grains, almonds and salmon.
