Eyelash-enhancing serums have proven to be a hot trend in the beauty world lately, but they tend to cost between $50 and $150…ouch! Luckily, we found an amazing recipe to make our own lash serum using just two ingredients you already have in the kitchen. Simply follow the recipe below to get lush lashes—for less!
*To do: *In a small resealable jar, mix equal parts castor oil and 100 percent aloe vera gel until the jar is full. Then use a cotton swab or clean mascara wand to mix the serum for 30 seconds until well-blended, then apply a thin layer to lashes. Apply daily before bed and leave on overnight.
How it works: The castor oil (an ingredient that has been used to stimulate hair growth since the ancient Egyptian times) is packed with omega-6 fatty acids, vitamin E and proteins that help fortify the root (for less fall out) and accelerate growth (for added length). Also, aloe vera moisturizes and strengthens each hair to reduce breakage, and has antimicrobial properties—so there's no risk of infection or irritation. In about 4 weeks you should see longer, lovelier lashes!
