Hello Beautiful ppl (•.•)ノ ❤
Hope you guys had a wonderful, wonderful time at Christmas! As for me, well I was busy primping the house and cooking for my family. Baked some delish banana nut muffins and paneer tikkas, created a new vegan curry recipe (which I would be sharing with you all soon!) and went for a long Christmasy drive with hubz! All in all a day well-spent, tired but happy 🙂 Decided to create a quick post about taking care of your lashes, in the way that I like it best-Naturally! 5 easy steps to get those long, wispy lashes that you have always desired.Read on to find out more!
1. CLEAN YOUR LASHES!
Don’t we all love using mascara and eyeliner to highlight our beautiful eyes? But when the party’s over, remember to remove all of those products in the gentlest way possible. Any makeup residues will only block the pores on your eyelash line and prevent them from growing, often making them prone to damage! If you are looking to replace your cosmetic makeup remover with a natural alternative, read my post on natural cleansers and go for the method which best suits your skin type!
2. THE POWER OF OIL
Natural oils have the power to really boost hair growth!They are a rich source of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, which are key ingredients to healthy, thick and long hair. Castor Oil and Olive Oil are the absolute favorites of aestheticians around the world. Gently applying and massaging any of these oils to your lashes, before bed-time lengthens and moisturizes them.
3. BRUSH THOSE BABIES!
When I was younger, my mum used to tell me to brush my hair a 100 times before going to sleep. Well mum’s always right, brushing your hair improves circulation and gives it the required natural boost to grow. The same logic applies to your eyelashes as well, not a 100 times though well that would be wayyy too much:D but 20 times would be a good number.After massaging your lashes with oil, use a brush with soft and gentle bristles to comb them lashes.
4. MASSAGE YOUR EYELIDS
It is also common practice to massage your eyelids with your ring finger, in soft, circular motions. This is a great way to stimulate the follicles of eyelash hair and really helpful in hair growth. You can either use a light oil or your daily eye cream for this.
5. DIY LASH GROWTH SERUM
INGREDIENTS: ORGANIC CASTOR OIL OLIVE OIL VITAMIN E CAPSULES
TOOLS: CLEANED MASCARA BOTTLE
INSTRUCTIONS: POUR EQUAL PARTS OF CASTOR OIL AND OLIVE OIL TO THE BOTTLE. CUT OPEN ARUND 1-2 VITAMIN E CAPSULES AND ADD THE OIL TO THE MIXTURE.

YOU WILL BEGIN TO NOTICE LONGER, FULLER LOOKING LASHES IN LESS THAN 7 DAYS.
Here’s hoping that all you lovelies can welcome the new year with LONGER, DARKER, STRONGER lashes! Until next time..
