Just like any other women out there, you probably are also stressing out the lashes that are becoming thinner by time and little by little falling away from your eyes. There could be several factors that cause this anguish in you. Age, health conditions, and even chemical and mechanical factors are the culprits for the condition of your lashes. Although there could be temporary remedy for these thinner lashes like mascara, pencils or other cover-up options, the observation that your eyelashes could eventually fall away totally might freak you out. But there’s no need to frown and be anxious. What you need is just a little info and understanding of the normal growth of the eyelashes and how to reinforce its growth.

Vitamins and Minerals to Promote Growth of Eyelashes

Yes, the length, color, and dense of your eyelashes are mainly determined by genetic predisposition, it is also important to understand that diet and nutrition plays a vital role in reinforcing the growth of these tiny little hairs on your eyes.


The two antioxidant vitamins necessary for eyelash growth are vitamin C and E. Vitamin C mainly prevents your hair to become dry and to split at the end tip. It also counters the damage that the free radicals have caused in your hair so that it could stay shinier and healthier. On the other hand, Vitamin E stimulates proper blood circulation in your scalp so the hair follicles stay nourished and healthy. You can find these vitamins in green, leafy vegetables, avocados, and citrus fruits.

Emu Oil

Emu Oil serves like an eyelash conditioner. From the word itself, it conditions the eyelashes to stimulate growth for healthier, fuller, and natural grow eyelashes. This can be applied on the lashes using a cotton bud or a Q-tip.

Olive Oil or Castor Oil

Alike emu oil, olive oil also serves as hair conditioner for the lashes. You can dab a small amount of olive oil or castor oil at the base of your lashes every night before going off to bed to sleep. It’s the same way application like emu oil. You can witness an improvement in the eyelash growth after 1-2 months of constant use.

Biotin or Vitamin H

Biotin promotes the faster growth cycle of the hair and it helps strengthen the hair. It is a B-Complex vitamin that is contained in almost all beauty products and is available in certain foods. Biotin is water-soluble and can be found in foods like pecans, almonds, sardines, bananas, brewer’s yeast, and whole grains. Moreover, it can also be found in egg yolks; however, the raw egg whites have Avidin. It is a protein that hinders the absorption of Biotin. So you might want to prefer the cooked egg yolk.


Just like olive oil or castor oil and emu oil, Vaseline works also as an alternative to these oils. It is also a good eyelash conditioner that promotes healthier, fuller, and thicker growth of lashes. You can dab a bit of amount of Vaseline through a cotton bud or a Q-tip just right at the base of the eyelashes every hour before sleeping. If you prefer, you can rinse it after fifteen minutes of application. Then you can see the result of new growth of eyelashes within a few weeks.

Diet and Nutrition

Having a right amount of consumption of certain foods rich in protein, calories and vitamin-rich can also stimulate eyelash growth. Foods like soy beans, yogurt, fish, and eggs are good for this.
