It is said that the eyes are the windows to a person’s soul. If that truly is the case, then surely these windows should be well taken care of since they reveal so much about us to other people.
Just like thick and full hair, long legs, flawless skin…lush lashes and eyebrows are a loved feature by many women. Unfortunately though, sometimes genes are just not on our side. Sometimes some of our features “need a little help”. We, of course, promote self-love and acceptance but hey, there can’t be anything wrong with making use of the science that has been created to help us, right?
The fact that you’re reading this article right now means one of two things.

Whichever one it is, you have definitely come to the right place as we are going to break down the best serums and tricks to achieving those lush lashes and eyebrows that will make your friends and foes jealous.

We’ve all heard the number of ways that lemon is beneficial to us. It promotes hydration, it gives us vitamin C, it helps to aid digestion, and supports our weight loss journey, to name a few. Well, you can now add "helping our eyebrows grow" to that list. Lemons are rich in vitamin B, vitamin C, and folic acid, which are the perfect combination to helping the hair on your eyebrows grow. Once a day, rub a piece of lemon onto your brows, leave for 20 minutes, and then wash off with lukewarm water.
Mother Nature has supplied us with all that we need through the plants that are all around us – we just need to know how to use each of them, of course.

With a name like “lashes to die for”, you, of course, expect nothing less than a spectacular product. Peter Thomas Roth highlights that this product isn't necessarily useful if you’re looking to reduce hair loss or to promote the growth of hair. It is highlighted though, that the product is particularly useful to “enhance the appearance of natural lash length, thickness, density, and fullness when applied along the lash line”.

Now, we all know that an egg helps us out by giving us some good and much-needed protein but did you know you can use it on your brows as well?
