A Beginner’s Guide To Eyelash Care And Growth

Our eyelashes play a key role in making our eyes appear beautiful, attractive, and appealing, and no matter how long or short our lashes are, we have to take care of them to ensure that they grow in a healthy way.

We often do multiple steps for our skincare, and even the hair on our head gets adequately pampered, but our eyelashes are often ignored.

But if we don’t take care of our eyelashes, we risk premature falling of our eyelashes, uneven growth of our lash line, and even thinning of our lash line.

But all these eyelash issues can be avoided if you dedicate at least 5 to 10 minutes to take care of your eyelashes.

Wash your eyelashes before you go to Bed

We wash our faces before we go to bed which we assume also cleans our eyelashes, but there are times when your lashes may need more than water to clean them.

Especially waterproof make-up can be difficult to remove so if you have had waterproof mascara, or eyeliner or even eyeshadow then take special care to remove it completely so that your lashes are clean before you go to bed.

This will prevent make-up products build-up at the root of your lashes so that you experience a healthy growth of eyelashes.

Be Gentle With Your Eyes

We all understand that our eyes are delicate so we make adequate efforts to keep our eyes safe, but we also are unaware of certain activities that we do daily that are harming our eyes and our eyelashes unknowingly.

One of the major things that impact the health of our eyes is excessive stress due to continuous screen time. If our eyes are constantly tired, it will gradually impact the health of the eyelashes and make them fall off before completing their growth cycle.

If you take care of your eyes and give them rest, then you will also allow your eyelashes to grow in a healthy way. 

If you are experiencing a lot of pressure in your eyes, you may even want to ask your doctor for eye pressure relieving eye drops such as Bimat which can receive ocular hypertension and even prevent wide-angle glaucoma.

Eat Food Items that are Rich in Keratin Proteins

Keratin proteins can be said to be the building blocks as they help in building the structure of our hairs which are on our head, our eyebrows as well our lashes. This protein is also known for providing for the structure of nails and for claws and horns in animals.

If your body lacks keratin protein, you will face difficulty in growing your hair, your eyebrows as well as your lashes but food items such as eggs, carrots, sweet potatoes, and kale can give you keratin protein.

Overall, having a healthy meal will ensure that your whole body functions properly and ensure that your eyes and your eyelashes are healthy.
