Women can spend a lot of time in the morning getting ready for the day or hours in the bathroom before a big event. We have tubes of mascara, eyeliner, blush, eyeshadow, makeup foundations, and medicine cabinets that are full of unused products that may have been sitting around for months. All in an effort to add some definition to our faces and create a focal point. That focal point is our eyes. We love to show off this feature that is unique to us. But some women have short, light colored, and thin eyelashes that make it hard to create a beautiful look, even with piles of makeup products. That’s where LATISSE® applications come in. Keep reading for tips on how to naturally nourish your eyelashes and see how LATISSE® eyelash treatments can help.

Reduce Stress

We understand that reducing stress isn’t as easy as it sounds and it can take time to remove stressful triggers from our lives. But when you can take some time to relax each day and give your mind a break from the daily grind, it may help improve the look of your hair and eyelashes. Our bodies can react to stress in various ways, including a higher chance of getting sick. Stress can also affect the process of hair growth. So after a long day of work or a stressful weekend filled with chores, give yourself an hour to take a long bath or watch a movie on the couch. Your eyelashes may thank you.

Lubricate Your Lashes

Just like we want to moisturize our skin to prevent it from becoming dry and cracked, we want to moisturize our lashes. Using petroleum jelly or olive oil, gently rub some lubricant onto your lashes. Do this after you have thoroughly washed and rinsed your face to ensure that there isn’t any makeup around your eyes. This will help to prevent the lashes from drying out and breaking.

Take Care of Your Body

Have you been getting your daily vitamins and minerals? Enhancing the look of our eyelashes starts with a healthy body that is full of Vitamin C, E, and B. All of these vitamins are known to help with hair growth. When our bodies are vitamin deficient, you don’t need a doctor to tell you that it can have negative impacts on our bodies. The next time you’re making some dinner, look for foods that are high in these vitamins.

  • Vitamin C Foods: Strawberries, pineapple, mango, Brussel sprouts, kiwi, bell peppers, and oranges.
  • Vitamin E Foods: Almonds, peanuts, avocado, tomato, asparagus, kale, trout, and peanut butter
  • Vitamin B Foods: Salmon, mackerel, feta cheese, cottage cheese, eggs, and leafy greens

Look for foods that are high in amino acids as well, like fish, olive oil, and nuts. These essential fats can also help your eyelashes look thicker, longer, and darker.

LATISSE® Eyelash Treatments

Along with keeping our bodies and minds healthy, and the basket full of makeup products, add LATISSE® applications into your daily routine. LATISSE® treatments work to lengthen the growth phase of your eyelashes. So if you have short eyelashes and you have a hard time getting the look you want each morning, this application can give you noticeable improvements. The prescription medication is easy to use and is more effective than over the counter products that simply moisturize the lash, instead of treating the root cause.

If you’re tired of spending your time and money on products that don’t achieve what you want, give LATISSE® eyelash growth treatments a try. It’s time to throw out the pile of makeup products. For real results that will give you thicker, longer, and darker lashes, call Vision Care Centre today.
