There are many ways to grow your eyelashes and eyebrows. Some beauty gurus will tell you which one will give you the best results, some will recommend herbal supplements, and some will outright tell you to use false eyelashes instead.
There are hundreds of websites that will tell you to use products such as coconut oil or some other herbal concoction. Over on Healthextremist.com you'll find tips such as these:
Massage Eyelids - Massaging the eyelid area and near the lashes helps increase blood flow and circulation, which encourages your lashes to grow! This made perfect sense to me when I found this tip as I also do it for my hair! Every night I massage my scalp to help increase hair growth.
According to HealthExtremist, it could take about 1 to 3 months to see results... Let me repeat that in case you didn't catch it. 1 to 3 MONTHS!
And what happens if you didn't see any results after a month? Will you waste more time massaging your eyelids and applying coconut oil to your lashes in the hopes that they will magically grow an extra millimeter? Or will you take a look at what science has to say on the matter?
As many studies have shown, Bimatoprost, the active ingredient in Careprost is proven to grow the length of your eyelashes. Here is a small excerpt from the Bimatoprost Wikipedia page:
On December 5, 2008, the FDA Dermatologic and Ophthalmic Drugs Advisory Committee voted to approve bimatoprost for the cosmetic use of darkening and lengthening eyelashes. The medical term for this is treatment of hypotrichosis, however, the FDA approval is for purely cosmetic purposes.
Bimatoprost activates prostamide alpha F2 receptors found in the hair follicle to stimulate its growth rate. Research led by Professor Randall and the University of Bradford found that it may also offer a treatment for scalp hair regrowth in trials conducted on samples taken from men undergoing hair transplants.
Not only does Careprost work for eyelashes, but it works for eyebrows and scalp treatment as well! And there are not "ifs" or "maybes" about it. Just it them out for a month and see the results for yourself!
