We all want thicker, more luscious looking lashes, but we don’t have to settle for temporary long lashes anymore because we can grow our own lashes and the best way to do that is with Vaseline.
The most common question is does Vaseline help eyelashes grow? Well, it depends. If you want to grow longer eyelashes, Vaseline will not help you in this, but if you want more moisturized, thicker lashes, then Vaseline is the right product for you!
Vaseline has a number of uses, but the one use that is not very well-known is the one that it helps lashes look longer and smoother. The base and the roots of your eyelashes are moisturized by the Vaseline and so they have more of an opportunity to grow.
Vaseline helps eyelashes to rehydrate them and with that, they feel softer and smoother. Vaseline can be found in most drugstores and it is cheap. You can also use Vaseline with or in lieu of mascara. If you use Vaseline instead of mascara, you’ll have a natural, fresh dewy look.
Vaseline also makes your makeup last longer, so you can apply it as a base layer on your lashes, and then coat a layer or two of mascara over the top.
Another good question is if the Vaseline is good for your eyelashes. Well, Vaseline has certain benefits, it is cheap, it is super accessible and extremely moisturizing, but the downside is that it is also controversial, and it is a by-product of petroleum. The components from the oil during the refining process of petroleum jelly that are removed is carcinogenic in some cases.
But the Vaseline is fine to use after all, but not on a daily basis. If you’re planning on using it daily, it’s best to go for some richly nourishing natural oils for lashes, like castor oil and coconut oil. These provide more nutrients and vitamins for eyelash growth like fatty acids and antioxidants.
But the best way to apply Vaseline is to clean your lashes and eyelid area first, then use a disposable eyeliner brush or mascara wand, or even a Q tip to gently dab a bit of Vaseline directly onto your eyelashes. You should avoid the lash line and focus on your eyelash tips. Be careful not to get any into your eye because this can cause discomfort and irritation. When it is applied to your lashes, you can use your forefinger to gently rub a little more onto the lengths and ends of your lashes and you are done!
But be sure to clean your eye thoroughly when you are ready to remove the Vaseline because it has a rather oily texture and it can clog your pores around the eye area and below it which can lead to breakouts on your skin.
