Eyelashes are composed of keratin and protein diets contribute as well to healthier eyelashes. Therefore, fish, eggs, meat and vitamin C rich diets are recommended intakes.
Eyelashes need a proper environment to grow to their ultimate potential which includes protection and flexibility. These are met by petroleum jelly (say Vaseline) which is well known for its protective, moisturising and conditioning properties and is proven to make eyelashes longer and thicker.
The procedure is simple enough: prior to application, all other eye-makeup needs to be removed. This is followed by applying petroleum jelly to the lashes with a new (or clean) mascara brush. The jelly should remain throughout the night until morning, when it is removed. This regimen should be followed at least three times a week.
Cooled and unsweetened green tea if applied to the eyelashes carefully using clean cotton balls will prevent and repair cellular damage and this tremendously helps in growing longer eyelashes.
