Eyelashes play a crucial role: they protect the eyes from the sun's rays, dust, and any other pollutants. That's why it's necessary to take care of them, and to use specific products designed especially for them. Whether they're natural, made up, or curled... Here's how to care for them.
Some facts to know.
On average, an eyelash measures between 6 and 10 mm, and is considered "long" when its length exceeds 12 mm. Therefore, if you wish to curl your eyelashes to intensify your gaze, we recommend you start by stimulating the growth of your eyelashes.
Techniques for achieving long eyelashes.
To promote eyelash growth, there are treatments with nourishing and hydrating properties:
Pure castor oil stimulates the growth of eyelashes and reduces their loss. It also increases volume and density due to its toning properties.
Skincare treatments composed of vitamins and peptides help to strengthen the follicles, thereby providing more resilience to the eyelashes. Vitamin B protects the eyelashes against chemicals and pollutants that can make them brittle, and peptides contain the amino acids that produce keratin, which is responsible for the good health of the eyelashes.
Finally, daily makeup removal also aids in maintaining strong eyelashes. This step removes makeup and impurities that cling to the lashes throughout the day. Also note that eyelashes should be treated gently during makeup removal, to avoid weakening and pulling them out.
How to curl your eyelashes?
To enhance eyelashes and make them appear more voluminous, mascara is often the go-to solution. It is applied along the length of the lashes, from root to tip, sometimes using a zigzag motion. The brush, along with the wax contained in the mascara, helps to curl the lashes and set their curve. Most mascaras contain hyaluronic acid, which aids in rehydrating the lashes.
The eyelash curler, whether manual or heated, is also a widely used alternative for shaping the eyelashes. When pinched for a few seconds between the two jaws of the device, the eyelashes curl and increase in density.
Finally, the lash lift. This technique involves curling the lashes using a slightly domed silicone patch, which redefines the curve. Unlike mascara, which is removed at the end of the day, a lash lift maintains the curl for four to five weeks.
