Long and thick eyelashes are every woman’s dream. Some women are born with naturally gorgeous eyelashes. Those who are not as lucky can resort to some tricks in order to create the illusion of longer and thicker lashes. The mascara is the most common such trick, but if you are looking for a more impressive result, you can also try fake eyelashes or eyelash extensions. Nevertheless, be wary as these tricks only create the illusion of longer lashes, but in fact they actually damage your lashes. The most efficient and durable solution for beautiful eyelashes is a lash growth serum. There are a few such products on the market, yet they can be quite expensive. However, you can also create your own lash serums. In order to help you with this mission, we have gathered the best homemade eyelash growth serum recipes.
Moisturizing lash serum
The following homemade eyelash growth serum is very easy to make and the ingredients are quite common as well.
- 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil
- one teaspoon of Aloe Vera (preferably the one with vitamin E)
- one teaspoon of petroleum jelly
- one empty container (best if it is an empty face cream container since this serum is very consistent and might be harder to pour into a bottle type container)
The instructions are beyond simple. Simply pour all of your ingredients into the empty cream container and stir them gently until your mixture is creamy and homogenized. Apply the serum each night on your lashes using a clean mascara brush and you will see the results in merely a couple of weeks. Our advice, regarding all lash growth serums, would be to apply them with dispensable mascara brushes, or if you think that this idea is too wasteful, at least make sure to thoroughly clean the mascara brush before applying it on your lashes, even if it is an old brush which you haven’t used with mascara for a long time. That being said, lets move on to the second recipe.
Our second recipe is similar to the one featured above. However, we like it more as it has a fluid consistency, and it can be put in a bottle type container.
- alcohol free Aloe Vera Gel
- castor Oil
- vitamin E Oil
- one bottle type container
Mix ¼ part Aloe Gel with ¼ part castor oil and ½ part Vitamin E oil. Since you are only using oils, all you have to do is shake your mixture a couple of times in the bottle type container. Keep the bottle in a dark and dry place during the day and apply the homemade eyelash growth serum at night before going to bed.
