I don’t complain about my face (not that I’m pretty), but if my eyelashes can grow a few millimeters longer, things will become better. But hey, nature really has given us everything. With coconut oil, growing our eyelashes isn’t completely impossible. In fact, it’s quite possible!
I heard a long time ago that coconut oil could lengthen eyelashes, but I didn’t believe it. However, my experience with coconut oil has proved that the statement is true. In my battle with my under eye wrinkles, I have used coconut oil on my eyes for weeks, and at the end of my experiment, I was amazed to find out that my eyelashes have actually grown some 0.1 to 0.2 millimeters (only estimation as I didn’t measure them with a ruler)! Just when I think my eyelashes will remain what they are for the rest of my lifetime, it’s a real wonder for me.
If you want to lengthen your eyelashes, I highly recommend you try coconut oil. It is also said that castor oil, olive oil as well as sweet almond oil can also stimulate the growth of the eyelashes, but I haven’t tried them.
One thing to note when applying any oil to your eyelashes is application skills. Be extremely careful, and don’t let any oil get into the eyes. It can blur and irritate your eyes. If you have no idea how it can be done, I have some tips for you.
A Clear Mascara Stick
Buy a clear mascara stick in your local beauty store and dip it in your selected oil. Comb your eyelashes with the stick. Be careful not to use too much oil for every trial, or else the oil may trickle down into your eyes.
A Q-tip is another tool you can try. Use a similar technique as you do with a clear mascara stick. I never tried this method, because I don’t want to trash a new Q-tip every night. It’s not eco-friendly.
Rub a few drops of oil between your palms. Close your eyes and cup them with your oiled palms. Don’t drag your palms as this may cause eye wrinkles. I use this method to apply coconut oil to my eyes every night, and no oil has ever got into my eyes.
