If you would like stronger, thicker or longer eyelashes the good news is there’s a better way to go about it then using false lashes, half a tube of mascara, or eyelash curlers. All you need to do is select the eyelash growth serum which best meets your individual needs, and start using it regularly.
Pretty soon you’ll have achieved the natural-looking results you have been looking for, and have longer or stronger lashes that will be the envy of all your friends.
All eyelash growth serums are incredibly easy to use; in fact, the only difficult thing is making the best choice amongst the various products lining the shelves. So in this post we’re going to help you find the best eyelash serum for your lashes by explaining what you need to look out for.
Choosing the right serum is easy
You only really need to concentrate on one thing – what you want the serum to achieve. Some brands are well known for doing one particular thing really well, others promise two or more benefits.
So long as you buy one which delivers what you want you’re winning. Here’s what to look out for on the packaging and in the ads for various eyelash growth serums.
Serums which do one or more of the following:
- focus mainly on conditioning and strengthening the lashes. These make lashes look healthier, shinier and as a result often thicker too.
- stimulate lashes to grow faster. This shortens the natural life cycle, which in turn makes lashes look thicker.
- encourage new hair follicles. This allows more eyelashes to grow and makes them look thicker.
- make lashes grow longer than they usually would.
- double up for both lashes and brows.
Other factors which may influence your choices
Price is an obviously important factor, but with serums available to suit all budgets don’t assume that a top end expensive brand will be automatically superior to a drugstore deal.
The ingredients in any eyelash growth serum should always be checked, as some brands may contain added extras which are common skin irritants. There are some obviously eco-friendly serums around, often with a hefty price tag, but it is possible to find cheaper products that openly promote their use of natural ingredients, or at least shun parabens and unnecessary fragrances.
Many boast that they contain minerals and vitamins to promote hair growth and strength.
If you intend to continue wearing mascara during the day look for a serum designed to be used while wearing makeup, as many need to be applied twice daily and some require clean and cosmetic free skin.
Pay attention to the way a particular serum is applied. Some come with a small brush, which makes it easy to get to the roots of your lashes; others are very similar to a mascara wand, which is more familiar and makes applying serum to the lashes easier.
The take-home message then is to prioritize what you want from an eyelash serum whether that’s moisture or length, and in some cases, both, pick a product that can deliver what you need, and get started. Within weeks you should have the results you were looking for.
