" So You've Heard The Rumors About A New Beauty Product
Claiming To Give You Thicker, Longer Eyelashes … "
"Brilliant!" you say.
You have a snoop around the internet to check out the products available, scanning through the bombardment of information, only to feel confused and none the wiser about how these products actually work. Leaving you in two minds either to part with your hard earned cash or not.
Does this sound familiar?
Not to worry, just read on a bit further and I'll explain everything in clearly easy laymen's terms just how eyelash growth serum works.
" The Easy Science Bit … "
Have a look at your eyelashes, what do you see?
They are all different lengths, right?
Just like the hair on your head, each hair, called a hair follicle, grows at a different rate to the one next to it. Eyelashes grow within a 90 day growth cycle . Then it falls out and a new one grows in it's place.
Are you with me so far?
Over time, hair follicles can become dormant or damaged so the hair does not grow anymore, but they're not dead. Think of them as sleeping.
What eyelash growth serum does is it stimulates the dormant ones at the eyelash roots to make them grow again. So it does not create new hair follicles, it just wakes up the sleepy ones.
This gives the effect of thicker, longer eyelashes because you now have more numerous lashes which have grown to their full potential.
" What Are The Benefits Of Using Eyelash Growth Serum ?"
Beside stimulating hair re-growth, it conditions and nourishes your lashes. Think about what you put on your lashes everyday.
That's right … mascara!
Which despite it opens up your eyes, frames your face and gently enhances your natural beauty, it does tend to dry your eyelashes out causing them to break and fall out sooner.
Conditioning your lashes reduces breakage, the eyelash growth cycle is not disrupted and so less eyelashes fall out.
Most eyelash growth serums on the market are very safe to use, formulated with natural ingredients and clinically tested .
One brand which is head and shoulders above the rest is from a company called LashEm.
They produce an excellent eyelash growth serum called Measurable Difference Lash Gel Serum . A bit of a mouthful, I know! So let's call it LashEm lash gel for short.
Made in the USA, it's been clinically and ophthalmologist tested , providing it's a safe product to use. And it's not been tested on animals !
Being made with safe, natural ingredients, it's hypo-allergenic and gentle on sensitive skin, causing no irritation or side effects. Even contact lens wearers can use it.
With it's easy to use wand, application could not be easier. Just swipe it across the lash line before bed and let it work it's magic overnight.
One tube usually lasts up to 3 months but you should start to see results within a few weeks, getting to work quickly. Please remember though, individual results will vary. For best results, use it for the full 3 months.
" No Prostaglandins Here … "
There are no prostaglandins in this product either.
"Phew!" you say. "But wait, what are prostaglandins again?"
Another easy science bit …
Prostaglandins are naturally occurring compounds in the body performing many physiological functions. One of them being to reduce pressure in the eyes for glaucoma sufferers.
Stay with me now …
A side effect of this was the growth of noticeably longer eyelashes. And this is where eyelash growth products are derived from.
However, some of these products contain a synthetic, man made, prostaglandin-like compound, either bimatoprost or isopropyl cloprostenate, which has been shown to produce some serious side effects. Such as eye irritation, iris color change, discoloration of skin at the lash line, swelling of the retina and blurred vision.
Who on earth would want to put this on their eyes!
Rest assured any eyelash growth products recommended here have been double checked for these ingredients.
