Long, thick and fluffy lashes is that beauty goal we all have. Unfortunately, most of us aren’t naturally blessed with long lashes. But there are steps that we can take to grow our lashes faster, one step closer to achieving that full open-eye look. Here are some tips and tricks on how to make your eyelashes grow faster, thicker and longer - to achieve the look you've always wanted.

Use a Lash Growth Serum

One of the most effective ways to grow your lashes faster is to use a lash growth serum.

These serums are designed to enhance the growth of lashes by promoting blood flow to the follicles. There are several lash growth serums on the market, so be sure to choose one that is made with natural ingredients and free of harmful chemicals.  Apply the serum every night before going to bed, and you should see results in as little as 4-6 weeks.

Apply Castor Oil

Castor oil is known for its ability to promote hair growth, and it can work for lashes too. Carefully apply a very small amount of castor oil to your lashes before going to bed and rinse them off in the morning. Over time, you should see an improvement in the length and thickness of your lashes.

Make use of your eyelash curler

An eyelash curler can help to make your lashes appear longer and thicker, especially while waiting out that growth period. Curling your lashes helps to lift and separate them, giving the illusion of fullness. Be sure to use the curler before applying mascara, and be gentle to avoid damaging your lashes.

No time for that eyelash curler? Get a lash lift instead to skip that extra step.

Healthy Diet

Maintaining a healthy diet is essential for overall health, and it can also help to promote lash growth. Make sure to include plenty of protein, vitamins, and minerals in your diet to support healthy hair growth. Foods such as eggs, nuts, and leafy greens all help to promote healthy and strong lash growth.

Avoid Rubbing Your Eyes

We know - we've been there! Rubbing your eyes can cause lashes to fall or break, which can slow down their growth. To avoid this, be mindful of how often you touch your eyes and try to minimise the amount of pressure you put on your lashes.

In conclusion, growing your lashes faster is possible with the right steps and a little patience. Whether you choose to use a lash growth serum or castor oil, or simply adopt a healthy diet, you can achieve the fuller, longer lashes you desire. With these tips, you'll be well on your way to thicker, fuller lashes in no time!
