Amongst ample of these artificial choices available in the market, we provide you with various home remedies which you can adopt in order to grow long, dark and beautiful eyelashes naturally.

Getting beautiful and long eyelashes can be like a dream come true for all you women out there. The best way to grow your eyelashes naturally is by applying Petroleum Jelly to your eyelashes every night before you go to sleep.  You can either apply it using your fingers or apply it using a clean mascara brush similar to the way in which you apply mascara. If you are using your fingers, take some petroleum jelly onto your index finger and your thumb. Prepare it to apply over your eyelids and your eyelashes. Using both these fingers, rub the jelly over the eyelids and slowly move it all over the outer corner of your eye. Apply the jelly to both the top and bottom of your eyelashes. You can also apply it to the lower portion of the eye, all the way to the bone under your eye. Once you are over with the procedure, you can just relax and go to sleep. You will be amazed to see the results next morning.

Another natural method of growing dark, long and beautiful eyelashes is by using olive oil or castor oil for your eyelashes. Either of the oil can be applied to the eyelashes in the same way as you read about applying the petroleum jelly. Castor oil is rich in vitamin E which nourishes your hair and makes it strong and healthy. It also prevents the loss of eyelashes thereby increasing the growth of dense eyelashes. Castor oil can also be mixed with egg white and applied on your eyelashes. Use two to three drops of both the mixtures and apply it to your eyelashes overnight using the same procedure as mentioned above. This will make your eyelashes strong, long and healthy at the same time preventing loss of eyelash.

While you use these home remedies to make your eyelashes long, strong, dark and beautiful, you also need to be careful about certain things such as using fake eyelashes. Fake eyelashes are believed to harm your natural eyelashes so avoid wearing them whenever possible. Avoid wearing them on daily basis however you can wear them occasionally. You also need to keep a check on your eye dandruff. Eyelashes can be affected by your eye dandruff, so make sure you do not have any such problem.
