The latest beauty trend is growing longer eyelashes to make your eyes look bigger, more alert, and younger. To do this, women use topical gels and serums called eyelash growth products or eyelash enhancers.
However, there seems to be some confusion as to how these products should be used. Using too much these serums, even natural eyelash growth products will not necessarily make your eyelashes grow faster or thicker. Instead it may even cause irritation and lead to undesirable side effects such as stinging, red eyes, or even eye color change!
This article will tell you how to properly use an eyelash growth treatment to get the fastest results without wasting any product or damaging your eyes. After you've decided on the right eyelash stimulator treatment, there are a few simple tips to keep in mind.
1. You should apply the eyelash growth product to just your top eyelid. Apply the growth gel like liquid eyeliner, try to play it safe and apply it slightly above your lash line rather than right on it. This way it will be less likely that extra gel will leak into your eyes. Also do not apply the eyelash accelerator to your bottom lash line. This will increase the chance of extra product getting into your eyes. When you blink, the gel on your top eyelid will get onto your bottom lashes and this will be enough.
2. Whether you use your eyelash growth serum in the morning or evening, be sure to apply the product directly to clean skin. The best time to use your lash growth serum is right after you've washed your face. This way there is no makeup or skin oils that will block the lash growth serum from soaking into your eyelash hair follicles where it will work its magic. Do not skip this step to save some time. You'll just end up wasting product.
3. Keep in mind that eyelash stimulators take time to work. Since you are enhancing eyelash growth, you will not see instant results like with false eyelashes or eyelash extensions. The fastest working eyelash conditioners take at least two weeks to start working. Again, this will depend on your genetic makeup and how fast you can regrow your eyelashes. Lashes like all other hair on your body can take as long as six to eight weeks to grow. However, an eyelash accelerator can speed this up eyelash regrowth to just two to four weeks. Just be patient.
As long as you keep these three tips in mind, you will see results with your eyelash growth serum. The advantages of using an eyelash stimulator as opposed to going to the salon for eyelash extensions are that the best eyelash growth products cost a fraction of a single lash extension treatment, one tube of lash stimulator will last for months, and you can use it any time in the privacy and convenience of your own home.
