All women dream of long, thick, and fluffy eyelashes that emphasize the beauty of their eyes. However, you don't have to use extensions or extensions to achieve the desired effect.

There are several effective ways to lengthen and strengthen eyelashes naturally. The Glam magazine tells about them in more detail.

Serum for eyelashes

There is only one FDA-approved way to help you maximize your eyelashes, and that's to use a special serum. It contains an active ingredient that prolongs the time that the follicle remains in the growth phase.

However, be careful. Some serums contain substitutes for quality components whose side effects are not fully understood. Also, remember that even high-quality products for stimulating eyelash growth can cause eye irritation and darkening of the eyelids.


Proper nutrition and vitamins cannot radically change the appearance of your eyelashes, but if your body feels good and receives all the necessary nutrients, then your eyelashes will grow better.

Micronutrients such as omega 3 play an important role in the stability of hair growth, so make sure you eat enough oily fish, chia seeds, and walnuts. Also, don't neglect protein, iron, zinc, and foods containing vitamins A, C, D, and E.

However, before drawing conclusions about which vitamins and minerals you lack, you should consult a doctor and have a blood test.

Sleeping in makeup

To keep your eyelashes looking their best, it's important to take care of them like any other part of your body. So don't forget to remove your makeup properly before going to bed, because otherwise your eyelashes may break, become weaker, and even start to fall out.


There is no evidence that topical oils can stimulate eyelash growth, but moisturizing them can make them stronger, longer, and more voluminous.

Coconut oil is rich in lauric acid and can help create a barrier to protect lashes from dirt and other irritants. You can also use castor oil. It moisturizes the skin and eyelashes and does not clog pores.


The fact that stress is inevitable does not change the fact that it has a bad effect on health and, as a result, worsens the condition of the hair. It also raises cortisol levels, inhibiting the growth of hair follicles and increasing hair loss.
