Do you remember that catchy Yo Yo Honey Singh track – Blue eyes hypnotize? Well, if your eyelashes are falling off, then this hypnosis isn’t going to last too long, lovely ladies. Beautiful and bold looking eyes are incomplete if you don’t have thick and long eyelashes. But before we give out the secret to get them back, you need to understand why they are falling out in the first place.

To be precise, here are a few common causes of losing eyelashes:

1. Using chemical-laden kajal or mascara.

2. Applying these products roughly.

3. Having a medical condition like alopecia areata, where hair falls erratically.

4. Hypo or hyper thyroid.

5. Rubbing your eyes roughly can also lead to falling out of eyelashes.

6. Eye inflammation is also one of the causes.

7. Also, if someone is going through chemotherapy, then loss of eyelashes is seen.

But if there is no medical condition, then certain home remedies can literally help you grow your eyelashes back naturally.

Here’s a DIY serum to stop eyelash loss

Ingredients that you need to make this serum

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp castor oil
  • 1 tbsp aloe vera gel
  • 5 drops of green tea water
  • A jar to store

Here’s how you can create the eyelash serum

1. Take a green tea bag and soak it in water. Remember not to dip it, but soak it in, as we only need a few drops.

2. Now take all the ingredients: olive oil, castor oil, aloe vera gel, and green tea water and mix it well, until it becomes a smooth paste. Ensure it doesn’t have any lumps, otherwise it can irritate your eyes.

3. Now take a clean mascara wand, dip it in this serum, and apply gently on your eyelashes. You can also use a cotton swab and dab it around the eye area.

Apply this serum before going to sleep and keep it overnight for thick and smooth eyelashes.

It’s the magic of castor oil, olive oil, and aloe vera gel that will help you get those dreamy eyelashes

Both castor and olive oil are hair follicle stimulators. Plus they also help in fighting the trapped micro-organisms in your eyelashes that are leading to the eyelash hair falling out.

If you observe carefully, then you will realise that your eyelashes fall out mostly in winter. It happens to an extent that your eyes literally look bald. That’s because your eyelids are undernourished and dry. These two oils along with aloe vera gel will keep your eyelashes hydrated and moisturized, so that they get stronger, thicker, and longer. 

So no more pining for those gorgeous eyelashes, because now you too, have the secret to grow them back.
