A Healthy diet –Ultimately it all comes down to this, ‘the kind of things that you put inside your body will reflect on the outside’. Healthier your diet, the more beautiful you look. A good amount of vitamins, minerals, proteins would make your lashes grow longer, stronger and thicker. Include lean proteins in your diet such as fish, cheese, eggs, beans, yoghurt, milk, almonds, fruits etc. Drink plenty of water to get rid of toxins. This will ensure you have longer and thicker lashes.
Natural Oils –You could use any of the natural oils such as coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil (my personal favorite), argan oil or almond oil. You could also use lemon olive oil (soak a few dried lemon peel in olive oil and put it in the sunlight for a few days). It’ll protect, moisturize your lashes and make them grow faster & thicker.
How to apply oil to your eyelashes to make grow faster? Clean an old eye liner container and fill it in with any organic oil of your choice. Just before going to bed, swipe it on your upper and lower lash line just like an eye liner. Leave it overnight and wash it off the next morning with some warm water.Follow this religiously and you’ll definitely see a difference in a few weeks.It’ll protect, moisturize and make your lashes grow faster & thicker.

Useful Tips For Growing Lashes Faster & How to Prevent Them From Falling Off
- Remove all your eye makeup before bed, no matter how exhausted you are. Dab coconut oil on a cotton pad and gently remove the mascara off your lashes. Don’t use waterproof mascara on a daily basis as they are the hardest to get off. While removing eye makeup, don’t rub your eyes too harshly. Instead use gentle swiping motion.
- Brush your lashes using a lash brush once or twice a day. It’ll remove any dust particles as well as ensure proper growth.
- Trim your lashes. Once every few months trim off a small part of your lashes. I agree it sounds weird but trust me, it helps.
- Massage your eyelids. At the end of the day, after removing all your makeup, massage your eyelids for a few minutes. It’ll strengthen your lashes and you’ll see a difference in the rate of growth of the hair. But don’t be too hard, gently massage using your ring finger.
- Don’t use fake lashes every other day if you’re trying to grow your natural lashes.
There are also a few products available in the market that’ll give you long and thick eye lashes faster. But you might have heard that the things that come easy don’t last. Same is the case with these products. They might give you thicker and longer lashes faster but the results won’t last. Instead they’ll end up ruining your natural lashes.
