Do you get worried about your dull eyelashes? Wondering what you can do to bring back those shiny lashes? Isn’t there any natural product that can beautify your eyelashes without costing so much?
Yes, there is. And it is castor oil.
Castor oil has a laxative property that has been known for ages. Castor oil can easily be found in our homes. However, apart from being a wonderful laxative, castor oil has recently emerged as a miraculous remedy for eyelash growth. Works for getting thicker lashes. This article will shed more light on how castor oil can make your eyelashes thick and beautiful. So feel free to give it a try:
Methods of Using Castor Oil On the Eyelashes
Having known the wondrous benefits of using castor oil, it is also paramount that one knows how to use it to achieve the perfect eyelashes. But, prior to that, one must know how to detect the best castor oil from the market. It is crucial that only cold-pressed or cold-processed castor oil is used as these are pure and natural. One can also see industrial castor oil in the market but this is quite different from the natural castor oil and is not recommended at all.
In order to get an optimum result its best to apply castor oil at night before sleeping.
Follow these two simple steps:
- Firstly, wash your face and eyes well with normal water and then pad-dry with a towel.
- Then, take some castor oil on a clean mascara brush (make sure to tap-off the extra drops) and apply it on the eyelashes starting from the inner edge of the eye.
It is important that the oil gets to the roots of the eyelashes, hence apply with utmost care and precision. Repeat the process for the other eye as well.
If by any chance the castor oil is seen rolling down under the eye area, clean it using a Q-tip. This is important because if the oil is left on your eyelashes, it would mess up your eye-make up (and you wouldn’t like it a bit). Make sure you apply this method every night.
