All You Ever Wanted to Know About Strengthening Lashes

Looking for ways that you can try for strengthening lashes? There are 4 easy ways you can change your lifestyle to create the appearance of stronger, longer lashes!

1.    Avoid Waterproof Mascara

Waterproof mascara is a great invention, right? I mean, it allows you to participate in sports, hit the beach, or watch a sad movie while still keeping the mascara from running down your cheeks. Unfortunately, it doesn’t do much for lash growth.

Waterproof mascara is notoriously hard to remove, and we often scrub too hard when trying to wash it off which leads to lash breakage. If waterproof mascara is a beauty must for you, remove it with a cotton ball or pad soaked in a special eye makeup remover. The remover will dissolve the mascara and make it easier to wash away.

2.    Watch Your Diet and Take Your Vitamins

What your mom always told you is still right; watch your diet and take your vitamins! Dieting is great for reducing your waistline–but, it can reduce your ability to grow lashes, as well. If you are on a crash diet or gone vegetarian or vegan, you could be in danger of losing your lashes. All dieters should take a multivitamin supplement rich in vitamins A and E to help support lash growth. In addition, upping your calorie levels and protein consumption can help with the appearance of thicker eyelashes.

3.    Change Out Your Eye Makeup Regularly

There’s a good reason all beauty experts remind you to toss your eye makeup every 3 months. Your mascara and shadow can harbor germs that can cause infections, leading to eyelashes falling out. To protect your pretty eyes, follow this regimen like clockwork. Obviously, you should do so sooner if you experience an eye infection. It’s a great excuse for a trip to the beauty counter, so discontinue using your makeup and buy fresh products as soon as possible.

4.    Stop Using Old-Fashioned Eyelash Curlers that Pull Your Lashes Out

I love my lash curler. An eyelash curler is a great tool for curling your lashes and opening up the frame of your eyes; in fact, makeup genius Kevin Aucoin called it the most important beauty tool ever. But use them wrong, and they can cause severe breakage of your lashes. But be careful about the options in eyelash curlers that you choose because some will pinch and rip eyelashes out if you aren’t careful.  You may even find it worthwhile to invest in a heated eyelash curler.
