How To Properly Apply Lash Serum

Eyelash serums are hitting the beauty market in a new and interesting way, and they're piquing interests in a large manner. Many may wonder if these eyelash serums really work, while others are more interested in uncovering the best eyelash growth serums available on the market right now. In any case, these serums are stirring interest in the beauty community in a way that newer products and trends haven't in a while.

When considering pursuing eyelash growth instead of wearing false lashes, take into account all of your options. You shouldn't use Vaseline for eyelash growth, for example, and other products may not be best for your skin type. At a base level, lash serums are formulated to help your eyelashes grow over time by improving your follicles' health (via The Lash Professional). To promote their natural growth, these serums consist of different fatty acids and conditioning peptides, so they're typically composed of natural ingredients. Essentially, then, they elongate your lashes' growth cycle by elongating its telogen phase, which is when most of the lashes' growth occurs.

While these serums are becoming increasingly renowned, it can be hard to understand how to properly apply them. However, with a few tips, you can have your lashes growing in no time.

Lash serum is easier to apply than you may think

When applying lash serum, there are a few things of which you should be aware. According to No7 Beauty, lash serums should never be applied while you're wearing makeup or if you have contacts in. These can cause severe damage to your eyes or skin, so always apply it fresh out of the shower or another similarly opportune time.

Moreover, Byrdie explains that lash serum should be applied up to three times daily, but no less than twice. The growth process revolves around elongating the growth cycle, so the continued application of the serum will help that cycle stay in motion and therefore grow your lashes longer. Applying your serum only once daily may help, but the end results won't be as full.

To apply the serum, then, simply cleanse the skin around your eyes (via No7 Beauty). Once your skin is dry again, use the serum's applicator or a cotton swab wet with the serum and glide it along your upper and lower lash lines. You should apply enough serum that each lash line is wet, but not too much that it's dripping down your face or into your eye. No7 Beauty notes that lash serums should be applied for eight weeks at minimum, so it may be a while before you see results.

Ultimately, applying lash serum is a breeze and can be added to any beauty routine effortlessly. Happy growing!
