Last month we celebrated strong women for International Women’s Month. Now it’s time to celebrate strong lashes. But why is it important to know how to get stronger lashes? Is it even possible to do so naturally? Will stronger lashes affect the appearance of my lashes? In this blog post, we’ll answer all your questions about how to get stronger lashes, and why it’s important.
Are stronger lashes better?
Yes! But why? Stronger lashes mean less breakage. One of the main reasons your lashline may become short and thin is because your lashes are weak. They are then more likely to either fall off or break. Don’t worry, your lashes will grow back if they break, but it can take up to 100 days, depending on which phase of the lash growth cycle your lashes are in.
However, if your lashes are well-nourished and strong, your lashes will be able to grow to their full potential – which is a lot longer and thicker than you may think! To learn more about your lash growth cycle and how it affects the length of your lashes, check out our blog post, 3 Secrets Every Woman Should Know About Her Lashes.
4 Practical Ways to Get Stronger Lashes
Now that you know why stronger lashes are important (hello, longer, thicker natural lashes) you probably want to know how to strengthen them. There are 3 ways to get stronger lashes:
- Vitamins and minerals
- Gentle lash care
Here are some practical things you can do every day to keep your lashes hydrated and well-nourished with all the right vitamins and minerals, while still offering them gentle care.
Taking vitamin supplements can have a whole range of health benefits. However, if you want to take supplements for stronger lashes, the most important vitamins and minerals to focus on are Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Zinc. Remember to always consult your doctor before taking any supplements.
2. Foods rich in anti-oxidants
Antioxidants protect your cells from free radicals, or stray oxygen molecules, which can cause harm to your lashes. We have a whole blog post about foods for healthy lashes, but some of the foods richest in antioxidants include blueberries, kale, broccoli and carrots.
3. Avoid products with harsh chemicals
When in doubt, opt for clean beauty products. Not only are they better for the planet, and for your health, but they are free from harsh chemicals that can strip your lashes from moisture, causing them to become brittle and break.
Bonus tip: Avoid waterproof mascara which can also dehydrate your lashes, causing them to become weak.
4. Use a high-quality lash serum
The best thing you can do to get stronger lashes is to use an eyelash serum every day. Not only will this keep your lashes hydrated, but will also nourish them with the vitamins and minerals they need to stay strong, long and thick.
