Follow either of these remedies for several months for best results.

Note: Make sure to remove the latex by rinsing the aloe vera gel thoroughly before applying.

Tips & Precautions

A. Remove Eye Makeup At The End Of The Day

Makeup clogs the skin around the eyes which is very thin already and mascara is heavy on the lashes. Removing it at night gives rest to your lashes. Also, be very gentle when you are removing your eye makeup. If you are rough with your lashes, they can become sparse and may not grow back as healthy as they are right now. Your eyelashes take longer to grow back than your scalp hair, and you don’t want to damage what you currently have.

B. Trim Your Eyelashes

This really helps! You can trim your lashes once every two to three months. Just trim a small part of them(1/4th). Trimming your lashes will stimulate the follicle of your eyelashes and makes them grow faster.
Caution: Do not attempt this without a specialist’s supervision.

C. Using a simple mascara wand, brush your eyelashes every day (preferably twice a day). This distributes the natural oils evenly and also promotes circulation.

D. Using your ring finger, gently massage the eyelids and the lash line every day.

E. Diet

You must have a balanced diet to support the growth of healthy eyelash from within the body. Ample amount of proteins and healthy fats are required for healthy lash growth.
