There’s something about having full, fluttery lashes that instantly makes one look more awake. Putting on coats of mascara is the easiest way of getting a mini-eyelift and we’re all here for it. However, if you don’t want to rely on makeup, you can also strengthen and lengthen your natural lashes by using a lash serum. But do the formulas really deliver what they claim to? Let’s read more to understand.
These are basically growth-enhancing formulas that help in eyelash hair growth. They add thickness, density, and length to the natural lashes so that they get a boost. When used regularly they also add shine and can be a staple in your beauty routine. So, if they really do work for you, you wouldn’t need to go in for procedures like lash extensions etc.
However, lash serums are not to be confused with lash conditioners. Lash conditioners don’t really help lengthen them in any way but are more for people with ample eyelashes, who want them to look more moisturised. Remember to apply both these to clean lashes only!
Okay here’s the thing, even though many lash serums are made with power-packed ingredients like castor oil and Vitamin E, they can’t actually make your lashes grow. They can hydrate and strengthen them, they can also reduce breakage so using one will have some benefits. Eyelashes are made with protein, so the amino acids in lash serums do nourish and repair them. So if you’re one of those people who applies falsies very often, taking care of your natural lash hair with serum may be a good place to start.
Keep an eye on ingredients like collagen, peptides, Vitamin E, and amino acids in your lash serums because these will help the most.
The most important thing here is to have patience. Even if you use the best product, it will not show results overnight. Apply it diligently every morning and over time you’ll notice a difference. The timeline for each person can vary so give the product between a month and three months to see if it’s actually working for you.
It is most definitely safe to use these. However, following the specific instructions on the bottle is imperative. Apply it every morning or night on clean lashes and avoid using them if you’re wearing contacts. You should exercise some amount of caution when you’re talking about products that work very close to the eye.
Of course, if you feel itchiness, irritation, redness then stop using it at once and consult a doctor.
