Long, luxurious lashes are the best way to bring out your eyes, and Cabelo Hair Co. offers some great services to highlight their natural beauty. But after you’ve had that lift-and-tint done and you’re feeling great about your lashes, you might wonder: how do I keep them healthy, and maybe even help them grow?
Eyelash serum is the solution for those who want to help their lashes stay strong, whether it’s before, during, or after a natural enhancing treatment. The key is to pick the eyelash serum with the best ingredients – and they can be hard to find if you don’t know what to look for!
What Do Eyelash Serums Do?
Eyelash serums are supposed to keep your natural lashes healthy over time. These liquids have specific ingredients that, when applied topically with a brush, can deliver helpful nutrients to strengthen the hairs and keep them shiny. Generally, you use them once or twice a day, depending on the instructions, and you’ll see results after a few weeks of regular use.
When picking an eyelash serum, you should be a discerning shopper. Make sure that you know what to look for in the ingredients list, and know what works and what doesn’t. For example, you’ll find dozens of options that advertise the use of biotin, a B-vitamin that has long been thought to strengthen the keratin protein that makes up hair and nails. There’s no evidence that this is actually an effective ingredient, and you’ll find yourself shelling out quite a lot of money for little-to-no results.
What To Look For In A Quality Eyelash Serum
Don’t just buy anything with the word “serum” on it, though. Serums have to be made with ingredients that are verified to keep your eyelashes healthy and strengthen them. Many options on the market are made with ineffective, sometimes even harmful, fillers that don’t help your eyelashes at all.
We love Monat’s Eyelash Serum, Eye Wonder, precisely because of the ingredients list. Eye Wonder is made with proprietary ingredients like Capixyl and Fision KeraVeg18 that are ethically-sourced and clinically proven to work. Capixyl is used to strengthen and condition the lashes, while the Fision KeraVeg18, a vegetable-based alternative to animal keratin, adds additional lustre. This eyelash serum can be used on eyebrows, too!
To use Eye Wonder, apply a thin layer of the serum on makeup-free lashes and skin twice a day, along the base of the upper and lower lash line (where the eyelashes meet the skin). When using it in the morning or before going out for the evening, allow the serum to dry before applying makeup, waiting seven to ten minutes. For the best results, apply the serum morning and in the evening for four straight weeks.
If you’ve had an eyelash tint with us, remember to keep the lashes makeup-free for a day or two after the procedure; this warning includes the use of eyelash serum! Contact us today to learn more.
