Eyebrows and eyelashes are essential parts of facial beauty. Nothing adds sparkle to your appearance, like long lashes and ideal brows. Eyebrows and lashes can thin out or just stop growing, unlike the hair on our head. Sometimes, eyelashes and eyebrows become thinner with age or from specific health conditions such as fungal infections and nutrient deficiencies.
There are several remedies for thinning lashes and brows. This can be remedied either naturally or with a brow filling or lash extension procedure. These procedures are commonly offered at spas.
There are several natural remedies for thinning brows/lashes that have shown to be quite effective. These natural ways to thicken lashes and brows are painless and easy to do. Those with particular allergies should take care prior to attempting treatment.
Castor oil works amazingly to help grow lashes and brows back as castor oil promotes hair growth. Made from the seeds of the Ricinus Communis plant, it contains anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties. Castor oil is not rich only because of its moisturizing effects, but it also contains minerals and fatty acids that help nourish brows and lashes and increases circulation, which is essential for promoting hair growth.
We recommend you wash your eye area to clean off any makeup and gently brush your brows and lashes in order to remove all dead skin cells. Do this with a clean mascara brush. During your bedtime routine, use a clean cotton swab or clean mascara brush, apply the castor oil lightly from the roots to the ends and allow it to sit all night. Repeat this procedure daily.
A well-balanced diet is essential for maintaining optimal physical health. Eating foods high in particular vitamins can help with the growth of brows and lashes. Healthy food intake, exercising, and drinking plenty of water all contribute to a good level of health that ensures not just our brows/lashes, but our skin, nails, hair, and overall wellbeing.
Vitamins for eyebrow and lash growth include:
If you find it hard to get all the vitamins you need, then take a daily dose of a multivitamin to help you get the nutrients you miss.
Dry brushing the brow and lashes every night helps remove dead cells and circulates the natural oil of your hair—which help to keep them strong. You can brush them with a lash comb or a clean mascara brush. This is less time-consuming and the most affordable remedy for thinning brows and lashes.
