Count to five.
There are only 5 steps needed to take, if you want to have magnifying lashes and a younger appearance. Read on.
There is no doubt that all women’s favorite makeup product, is mascara. You will find one in every makeup purse and we always try new ones, to gain longer and fuller lashes. A full lash opens the eye, makes you look less tired and more attractive. Which ultimately, is what all women try to achieve when doing makeup.
But mascaras are used less and less, when there are so many products and solutions today that don’t dry out your lashes and don’t cause loss, when you remove them. Permanent lashes is one solution that many women resort to, when there is an intense sparse problem, but sometimes fake lashes will make it even worse.
In addition, if you suffer from conditions like blepharitis, dry eye, dermatitis, sensitivity, allergies etc., fake lashes are strictly prohibited.
So, what are you going to do, to get that intense look? Follow our 5-step guide.
If you suffer from one of those conditions, then you already know a good eyelid and lash cleanse is necessary to remove debris, excess oil and of course makeup and impurities.

Consider your lashes like it’s your hair. If you suffered from hair loss, you would do anything to stop it. Luckily, there are some treatments that might not end the problem, but they will def slow it down and reverse the damage to some point. And this is a whole lot better than nothing, when it comes to lashes.
One of the most affordable methods that strengthens them, is castor oil. But castor oil can be a bit annoying to most of us, since it’s an oil that slowly infiltrates our oil glands, causing blurred vision. If you suffer from a medical condition like blepharitis, oils might make it even worse. If you want to try this method, be sure to do it at night before you sleep and cleanse it well in the morning. Also, you might want to consider applying it with a cotton swab and massage the area to help blood circulation.
If your budget can take it, then we’d recommend to try a specializing treatment, which is formulated to address lash loss.

#5. DIET AND OTHER TIPS TO HELP LAS GROWTH
- Lack of nutrients in your diet can have a big impact on nails, skin, hair and lashes. Follow a healthy diet that contains lots of fruits and vegetables, to make sure your vitamin levels stay high enough.
- When you apply a treatment, do not forget to massage the area to help blood circulation.
- Never sleep with you makeup on. This will dry your lashes, causing even more loss.
- Every now and then take a break from fake lashes to give them time to recover.
- Do not experiment with makeup products in this area. Eyes are sensitive in general, so you should always go for quality and not low price.
