Top 5 Tips for Longer Lashes

Our health, and the things that we put on our bodies, are incredibly interlinked to how we look and feel about ourselves. While the goal may be “longer lashes”, the means to reach this goal include a journey of health and conscientious living. What are you eating? What are you putting into your body? Here are our Top 5 Tips for Longer Lashes (and healthier living):

 

1. Eat a Healthy Diet

The food that you eat affects your hair follicles more than you’d think. They need nutrition, too! Make sure that you are receiving all of the nutrients that you need to support healthy hair growth with a healthy diet. 

 

Yes, that means lots of veggies, beans/lentils, salmon (if your diet allows), and dairy (again, if your diet allows). Beyond the food that you eat, you can take vitamin supplements to support healthy lashes and a healthy body. Biotin and your B Vitamins are essential for hair growth! Also, drink that glass of water, you beautiful and capable, yet dehydrated, woman! 

 

2. Drink Green Tea

Green tea is rich in catechins, which prevents hair loss. Green tea is also known for having a high concentration of Vitamin B, giving your hair and lashes the nutrients they need to be silky and long. Green tea has also been known to have healing properties for your hair and body, speeding up recovery and growth. Pro Tip: Apply chilled green tea on your lashes using cotton to give your lashes the spa treatment they deserve! 

 

3. Take Vitamin E

Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant, which is known to aid in anti-aging goals. Vitamin E keeps your skin and hair looking young, which includes encouraging overall hair growth. Vitamin E keeps hair follicles strong and healthy due to strong amounts of alpha-tocopherol. 

 

Most people take Vitamin E orally in the form of a pill, but some people massage Vitamin E oil into their hair, and leave it overnight for stimulated growth. If you want to give your lashes a little splash of decadence, use a few drops on your lashes.

4. Remove Makeup Using Natural Methods

One of the most important lessons my mom ever taught me was: Wash your make-up off every night! Leaving your make-up on (especially mascara on your lashes) is so, so detrimental to your skin and eyelashes. 

 

Leaving your mascara on overnight can dry out your hair follicles, making them brittle and prone to breakage. It’s also important HOW you wash your face each night. Make sure to look for an all-natural makeup remover. Alternatives are olive oil and coconut oil. Lightly wipe the lashes in a downwards motion.

 

5. Use a Natural Eyelash Serum

Currently, people spend hundreds of dollars each month getting eyelash extension treatments, buying mascara and false lashes, and dying or tinting their lashes in the pursuit of Kardashian-esque lashes. 


But, many are finding out that these treatments and products are bad for them, bad for their pockets, and bad for the environment! They are looking for a more natural and cost-effective way to grow their lashes effectively. 


The answer is ForChics ForLash Hair Growth Serum, and women and men across the country are getting incredible results with our conscientious and data-driven formula. Here's what they have been saying:

Why ForLash Works:

  • Our lash-stimulating peptide complex supports the lash's natural renewal cycle making your lashes thicker, bolder, and healthier. 
  • The mineral-dense formula helps replenish lashes with essential proteins and vitamins that provide luster and shine. 
  • Unique moisturizing agents provide superior hydration to lashes by locking in moisture while improving flexibility and elasticity. 

Instructions: 

  1. Once a day before bedtime, apply ForLash Eyelash Enhancing Serum directly to the lash line using the applicator brush. 
  2. Make sure to wash your face beforehand. The eye should be completely clean of any make-up or eye creams. 
  3. Start from the inner corner of the eye and move outwards. Make sure to apply directly on the base of your eyelashes, but avoid your eyes! 
  4. Don’t apply the formula more than once per day. Remember, only a small amount of ForLash is needed to nourish and grow your eyelashes. One lash stroke is all you’ll need!

Be patient with your eyelashes but most of all be patient with yourself. All good things come to those who wait, as they say. If you want to give your lashes added nutrients, use an eyelash serum that’s easy-to-apply. Think of it as your multivitamins for your lashes. Pretty soon, you won’t be needing those eyelash extensions or eyelash tints anymore. Just your good ole’ natural lashes.
