Achieving longer, thicker, fabulously fluttery eyelashes is one of those things that we all desire and spend years working on. Whether your choice is mascara, falsies, eyelash tinting, lash lifting or lash extensions, they all cost time and money. Not to mention that they can be fiddly, irritate the eyes and make you lose more of your own lashes. Then there’s the fact that lash extensions constantly fall out and you have to commit to getting infills every couple of weeks. Oh it’s all such a faff!
But what if there was something easier that you could do? Something that strengthens lashes rather than weakens them. And something that boosts your own natural hair growth cycle, so that they look gorgeously healthy and long from the time you wake up in the morning to the time that you go to bed?
How to Stop Lash Fall-Out
Leaving mascara on whilst you sleep will inevitably dry out your eyelashes and make them brittle, so they’re more prone to falling out. To prevent this from happening, always remove make-up gently before bedtime.
If you do wear false eyelashes or extensions, it’s also important to remove those as delicately and gently as possible to reduce the natural eyelashes that come out with them. Similarly, if you’re a mascara wearer, it may be worth trying out a different mascara if you‘re noticing a lot of lash loss in case of allergy or irritation.
It’s also true that there are some medical conditions that cause excessive lash loss so as always, speak to your GP if you have concerns or feel there may be another underlying cause.
Using an eyelash conditioner, like RevitaLash® is another way to tackle lash fall-out. That’s because it promotes lash growth through ingredients that combine to condition and strengthen the lashes, meaning they’re less likely to break or fall-out and the added vitamins boost their silky texture and increase shine.
Even if you prefer the made-up look with mascara, false eyelashes, or an eyelash treatment, you should still treat your eyelashes with an eyelash serum to counteract the damage that may be done to them.
How to Get Longer Lashes
It’s that million-dollar question again. How do we get long, luscious lashes that are actually our own? Sure, you can get healthy lashes by adopting a healthier lifestyle, diet and even by adding some multivitamins for essential nutrients that are geared towards hair, skin, and nail health. But can you actually make them longer?
There’s always the lash curler, which granted, does give the appearance of longer lashes, but it’s also the devil when it comes to lash loss. Lash lifting is another option, but the bottom-line is that strong chemicals are used to give your eyelashes a perm. We don’t yet know the long-term implications of lash lifts, so you’d also be forgiven not to go down that route.
You might be surprised to hear that a lash conditioning serum can help with length in two ways. Strengthening the eyelash means that it's less likely to fall out until it's gone through its completely natural lifecycle so using a daily conditioning serum gives it the best chance to grow as long as possible.
Additionally, most lash serums extend the growing (anagen) phase of the eyelash’s natural lifecycle, enabling the eyelash to grow longer.
