How to Grow Longer Eyelashes Naturally

By Andrea Hermitt

Eyelashes, the hair that grows from the tips of the eyelids, protect your eye from hazards by making you blink if something gets too close. In addition, long eyelashes are a universal symbol of beauty. Women, who generally covet longer lashes, typically have shorter ones than men. Many products, such as mascara and fake eyelashes, will make your eyelashes look longer. Other cosmetics promise to stimulate eyelashes. But if you want your eyelashes to grow naturally, you can try a few age-old tricks.

Improve your diet to grow longer eyelashes naturally. Without proper nutrition, your body will cease to grow hair, fingernails and even eyelashes. Likewise, anything that makes your hair grow also will help your eyelashes grow.

Apply natural lubricants, such as olive oil or petroleum jelly, to your eyelashes to make them strong. Put the product on your eyelashes at night and wash it off in the morning.
