With these 5 tips you will get long and thick eyelashes
For an irresistible expression
Mascara has always been a well-known means to make the lashes look longer and thicker and to obtain a stronger expression. However, it is not clear to many that mascara is harmful to the eyelashes and that they break off and are thinned faster as a result. This problem often arises in connection with eyelash extensions. In addition, these often look unnatural and are associated with high financial and time expenditure. The best solution is therefore to let the eyelashes themselves become longer and thicker, instead of resorting to unnatural remedies that only aggravate the problem of short eyelashes. We have the following tips for you so that your eyelashes are permanently beautiful and healthy.
Give your eyelashes some rest
Less is more. As mentioned earlier, applying mascara every day is harmful to your lashes. On the one hand, the additional layer means that they receive less oxygen and become brittle more quickly. On the other hand, eyelashes can be torn out when removing make-up. And yes, the eyelash curler should provide an open look, but at the same time it damages the structure of the eyelashes. So better off with it!
Provide your eyelashes with the necessary nutrients
Beauty comes from within, this also applies to your eyelashes. If you want long and thick eyelashes, you have to provide them with the necessary vitamins, proteins and minerals. We have put together a list of the most important foods for you.
These foods ensure beautiful, long eyelashes
Iron stimulates the production of red blood cells. These transport oxygen from the lungs to the tissue. Iron supplies your eyelashes with oxygen and ensures that they are strong and strong. Iron-containing products include spinach, grains, nuts and legumes.
Calcium is also an important mineral for your eyelashes. These include yogurt, cheese, beans, and almonds. These foods ensure strong, long and healthy eyelashes.
♥ Vitamin C.
Citrus fruits, berries, broccoli and tomatoes are foods with a high vitamin C content. These promote the production of collagen, which in turn supports the build-up of hairs.
♥ Vitamin B complexes
The B vitamins are important for many metabolic processes in the body, including the hair roots. Vitamins B1, B3, B5 and B6 prevent the eyelashes from drying out. In addition, vitamin B6 promotes the production of melanin. This pigment is responsible for the coloring of our skin and hair.
Another important B vitamin is biotin, the vitamin B7. It is also called the beauty vitamin. This ensures the growth of nails and hair by promoting the production of keratin. This includes foods like carrots, cucumber, bananas, and milk.
♥ Omega fatty acids
These substances are found in foods such as walnuts, linseed and rapeseed oil, and avocado. They supply the lashes with vital substances and promote the growth of the hairs.
Keratin is a protein that consists of amino acids and protein. It is the most important protein for healthy hair. Our body produces this substance itself and it ensures that our hair becomes strong and resilient. The lashes become thicker and grow faster. Keratin is found in milk, cheese, buckwheat, quinoa, and chia seeds.
Why not do something good for your eyes. Regular massages of the eyelids promote the growth of the eyelashes and strengthen them.
And this is how it is done:
Put a few drops of olive oil or coconut oil on your fingertips and gently massage the lash line with circular movements for about 5-7 minutes. This promotes blood circulation, which leads to a better supply of nutrients. In addition, the coconut and olive oil give the eyelashes a shiny appearance and should also strengthen them naturally. With regular use, a difference is visible after a few weeks. In addition, hair loss often occurs in stressful times, as our body is additionally stressed. If you allow yourself at least these 5 minutes of relaxation every day, your body can recharge its batteries. This way you avoid stress-related eyelash loss.
Eyelash serum for the ultimate wow effect
A professional eyelash serum stimulates the hair sacs of your eyelashes - also called follicles - and thereby extends their growth in a gentle and natural way. The eyelash serum must be applied exactly to the lash roots once a day with a fine brush. The result is longer, fuller and darker eyelashes. The first results can be seen after about 4-6 weeks.
There are now a lot of different eyelash serums, which makes it difficult to decide which one to use. It is important that the list of ingredients should be as short as possible. The more different substances it contains, the greater the risk that their effects will react with one another and get on poorly with one another. We have summarized the most important ingredients for you.

Hyaluronic acid has a nourishing effect on your eyelashes and supplies them with moisture. So they always look fresh and healthy.
