    1. Condition your lashes

    By applying cold-pressed unrefined oil such as marula or castor oil from the roots to tips, you thereby strengthen your eyelashes. Both marula and castor oil hydrate the lashes, but notably castor oil helps lashes grow longer. Use a clean finger to coat the lashes with the oils or use a spoolie brush into the oil and swipe. Do whatever works for you and is best for you.

    2. Use a lash growth serum

    The average lash growth cycles last from 30 to 60 days. If lashes are dry and fragile, then lashes can fall out prematurely. Using RevitaLash or GrandeLeash-MD, noted growth serums, help prevent both breakage and brittleness.

      3. Take a type of B-vitamin known as Biotin

      Biotin helps promote strong hair, skin, and nails. Talking to your doctor, if you are curious, can be the quick fix for you. Vitamins are crucial for all parts to the body. So, why is the eyelashes an exception? There is not. So, start taking vitamins for eyelashes as well. They can help you do wonders with them. That is the truth.

      4. Before applying mascara, curl your lashes

      When applying mascara, if you curl your lashes after doing so, there is a great risk that you can get your lashes stuck to the curler. Hereby, your lashes get pulled out after you release the curler. Additionally, if you do not properly clean out the mascara you use at night, and try curling the lashes next morning, your lashes become dry and brittle. Your lashes as a result can break if you try to curl them. Curling your eyelashes when clean and free of make up is the best option for you.

        5. Use a blow-dryer to heat curler

        Using a blow-dryer to heat helps the eyelashes curl easily and makes the shape hold for a longer period of time. Blowing warm air onto the curler directly using the blow dryer is the first step to take. Next, you have to wait until it cools slightly and curl your lashes. This is a trick as if you would curl your hair with a curling iron.

          6. Rotate the curler

          Rotating the curler gives an intense look. Rotating the angle of the curler also gives you a big curl. You can do this by clamping the lashes at the base, pressing the curling, and holding the lashes for a few seconds.

          7. Do not pump more than twice

          Pumping your lash curler more than two times is not beneficial to your eyelashes. It is said that doing this can make them look indented and crippled as opposed to “curled.”

          8. Use a moisturizing mascara

          Lashes are hydrated when you use a moisturizer that keeps your mascara fully hydrated. Trying Rodial GlamoLash Mascara XXL is great for starting. It just might be the trick to get the perfect eyelashes that you have been waiting for since such a long time! Try and see for it. You will see the difference sooner or later.

          I hope you found this article well informative. Some of these things might have interested you because keeping your eyelashes maintained and well-protected is important. I hope you the best in your endeavors to keep them looking as spectacular as you! Best of luck.

          5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

          5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

          Everyone experiences mental stress at one time or another. Maybe you’re starting a new career, job, or business, or you feel incredibly overwhelmed between work, parenting, and your love life (or a lack of it). It could even be that you simply feel that you have way too much to do and not enough time to do it,  plus, on top of everything, nothing seems to be going the way it should!

          Yup, we all experience mental stress from time-to-time, and that’s okay as long as you have the tools, techniques and knowledge that allow you to fully relieve it once it comes.

          Here are 5 tips for relieving mental stress when it comes so you can function at your best while feeling good (and doing well) in work, love, or life:

          1. Get Rationally Optimistic

          Mental stress starts with your perception of your experiences. For instance, most people get stressed out when they perceive their reality as “being wrong” in some way. Essentially, they have a set idea of how things “should be” at any given moment, and when reality ends up being different (not even necessarily bad), they get stressed.

          This process is simply a result of perception and can be easily “fixed” by recognizing that although life might not always be going as YOU think it should, it’s still going as it should—for your own benefit.

          In fact, once you fully recognize that everything in your life ultimately happens for your own growth, progress, and development—so you can achieve your goals and dreams—your perception works in your favor. You soon process and respond to your experience of life differently, for your advantage. That’s the essence of becoming “rationally optimistic.”

          The result: no more mental stress.

          2. Unplug

          Just like you might need to unplug your computer when it starts acting all crazy, you should also “unplug” your mind.

          Advertising

          How on earth do you unplug your mind? Simple: just meditate.

          It isn’t nearly difficult or complicated as some people think, so, if you don’t already meditate, give it a try. Whether you meditate for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours, this is a surefire way to reduce mental stress.

          Meditation has been scientifically proven to relax your body (resulting in less mental stress), while also reducing anxiety and high blood pressure.

          3. Easy on the Caffeine

          Yes, we know, we know—everyone loves a nice java buzz, and that’s okay, but there’s a fine line between a small caffeine pick-me-up and a racing heart and mind that throws you into a frenzy of mental stress.

          Advertising

          Try giving up caffeine for a while and see how you feel. And, if that’s completely out of the question for you, at least try to minimize it. You might find that lots of your mental stress mysteriously “disappears” as your caffeine intake goes down.

          4. Attack Mental Stress Via the Back Door

          That’s right: your body and mind are part of the whole being, and are constantly influencing and affecting each other. If you’re experiencing a lot of mental stress, try to reduce it by calming your body down—a calm body equals a calmer mind.

          How do you calm your body down and reduce physical stress? A  great way to reduce physical stress (thereby reducing mental stress) is to take natural supplements that are proven to reduce stress and anxiety while lifting your mood. Three good ones to look into are kava-kava, St John’s wort, and rhodiola rosea:

          • Kava-kava is a natural plant known to have mild sedative properties, and you should be able to find it at your natural health food store or vitamin store. It’s available in capsules or liquid extract form.
          • St John’s wort is a natural flower used to treat depression. Again, it’s found at your local health store in capsules or liquid. Because it uplifts mood (enabling you to see the brighter side of all experiences) it helps relieve mental stress as well.
          • Rhodiola rosea is a natural plant shown to reduce stress and uplift mood, and Russian athletes have been using it forever. Like the other two supplements mentioned, rhodiola rosea can be found at your natural health store in capsule or liquid form.

          While these supplements are all natural and can be very helpful for most people, always check with your health care provider first as they can cause side-effects depending on your current health situation etc.

          5. Good Old-Fashioned Exercise

          This tip has been around forever because it works. Nothing relieves mental stress like running, kickboxing—you name it. Anything super-physical will wipe out most of your mental stresses once the exercise endorphins (happy chemicals) are released into your brain.

          The result: mental stress will be gone!

          So, if you’re feeling overwhelmed or just plain stressed, try using some of the above tips. You can even print this out or save it to refer to regularly.
