Natural Beauty Tip #4: Use castor oil to get long and thick eyelashes

This DIY solution will strengthen your lashes.

If you've always needed mascara to make your eyelashes look longer and more prominent, you now have a natural solution to this beauty problem. Castor oil can help increase the length of your lashes and prevent them from breaking too. It strengthens and hydrates them which keeps them long and strong for a longer time. Within a few weeks of usage you will notice results. Here are some more benefits of castor oil for your beauty.

How to use:

  • Remove any speck of make-up from your eyes.
  • Take a Q-Tip or mascara brush and dip it in castor oil. Wipe off any excess oil.
  • Now using the brush, apply it on your eyelashes just as you would apply mascara.
  • Leave it on overnight.
  • In the morning, gently remove the oil from your lashes using a mild make-up remover and cotton ball.

  • Use only plain and natural castor oil.
  • Do not dip your mascara brush into the bottle directly as this can increase chances of contamination.
  • If the oil gets into your eyes, splash water immediately.
  • Do not wear make-up if you've applied castor oil on your eyelashes as it will not set in.

Remember, eyelashes do not have a very long life so they fall off after a few weeks but using castor oil will help strengthen them. You will also find them to be longer than usual. Make sure you apply the oil two to three times a week to see results. Here are some more tips to get longer lashes.
