Lucious, Healthy Lashes

 If your lashes don’t seem to have the same length and fullness they once did, thinning eyelashes are part of the aging process. But fortunately, there are things you can do to help them to stay healthy and appear longer & fuller.

1. Go easy on them! Stay away from false lashes for daily use and try not to rub aggressive when removing makeup. The best option is choose a gentle makeup remover that does most of the work.

2. Keep them moisturized. When your not wearing mascara, moisturizing agents like castor oil, coconut oil, and aloe vera gel may help to encourage hair growth by nourishing lashes and preventing breakage.

3. Use green tea to stimulate lash growth. Given its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, plus its panthenol and caffeine content, it may helps to hydrate lashes, and stimulate hair growth. To test it out for yourself, gently apply green tea (once cooled) to lashes using a cotton pad.

4. Take a Biotin supplement.  Biotin strengthens and protects hair, and may even help to combat hair loss, too, thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. Omega-3 fatty acids work in a similar way. Eating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids (e.g. salmon, nuts, and seeds) or taking a supplement can hydrate lashes and fight inflammation, thereby encouraging hair growth. This includes lashes, too! For multiple benefits, including lashes, skin, hair and nails, try this SkinElixer with Biotin, Hyaluronic Acid and VitaminC.

5. Use a clean and irritant free mascara. Some mascara ingredients are perfectly safe (water, oils, waxes), but many are irritants, allergens, hormone disruptors, carcinogens, and environmental toxins.

This why I love the Speaks Volumes Mascara. Not only is it clean and free of harmful & irritation ingredients, it actually performs. It performs so well, it was ranked in the Wall Street Journal in the top 10 of their favorite 50 best mascaras! Here’s what I mean by performance…

  • It’s an all-in-one mascara delivers a full lash effect, enhancing the look of volume, length, curl and separation.
  • Includes a proprietary blend of polypeptides and botanicals, including Pea Peptide and Radish Root, help the formula support the look of more voluminous and lush lashes, plus Green Tea and Larch Extract help the formula create the appearance of fuller, longer lashes.
  • In just one swipe, lashes are lengthened, boosted and separated in appearance.
  • With multiple swipes, lashes are built to a dramatic, multi-dimensional finish with bold-looking volume, length, curl and separation.
  • It has a tapered brush with specialized bristles helps catch every lash to coat and create buildable impact.
  • And, it’s smudge-resistant, lightweight formula stays in place comfortably, yet can be easily removed at the end of the day without tugging, helping to minimize lash fall-out.
