If you wish to have extra long lashes without applying mascara, then you need to try out the new growth serums specially created for lashes. A good mascara may do the trick if you want an instant result but a long-lasting effect is only given by a lash growth serum. They are all enriched with fatty acids which stimulate and promote growth and result in strong and long eyelashes.
There are many brands available over-the-counter that claim to lengthen your lashes. However, you may not see great results from OTC serums. According to experts, there is only one prescription eyelash growth serum LATISSE®, which is FDA approved for hypotrichosis (inadequate lashes). The active ingredient in it is prostaglandin, also called bimatoprost. It increases the growth cycle of eyelashes giving you longer, darker, and fuller lashes.
The best formula is one which contains peptides, biotin or lipids. It contains ingredients that strengthen the eyelash hair over a period of time and make it stronger. Biotin is vitamin B-rich and helps the lashes grow longer and thicker. Lipids moisturize and condition the lashes and peptides, which act on the skin cell of the lashes, create a healthy foundation to boost volume.
However, you need to check the ingredients as you may be sensitive to the formula it may contain. Itchiness is a common side effect. Listed below are some lash and brow enhancing serums:
