You might think the easiest way to bat some dynamite lash would be to stick some falsies on your eyelids, but newsflash: They can be damaging when worn long term. Working on strengthening your own lashes is a far better long-term strategy.
Like hair, your eyelashes work on a growing, resting and shedding cycle, “anywhere from six to 11 months, depending on the individual,” says Maryland-based dermatologist Lawrence Green. “The growing phase lasts for a month or two, while the non-growing phases can last from four to nine months.”
If your lashes are prone to being short, thin, and shedding, here’s how to extend your growth cycle and rev them right up:
Watch Your Diet
“Nutritionally deficient diets can adversely affect anything in the body, including eyelash growth,” Green says. Check out our guide to foods to eat for amazing hair, which applies to lashes too.
Take The Proper Care
“The most common cause of eyelash loss is wearing mascara for too long or not taking mascara off properly,” says Green. “Mascara should be removed every night and never left on overnight.” Eyelashes are gentle and easier to pull out than your hair, so going to sleep with makeup-free lashes will ensure they are prime for growth.
Use The Right Type Of Mascara
Green recommends women apply good quality, non-generic mascaras “with conditioners, if possible, and avoid waterproof mascara.” Try a coat of Jane Iredale Lash Extender and Conditioner before applying mascara for thicker, stronger lashes.
