What are lash and brow serums?
The hair of lashes and brows is much like the hair in your head, made up of amino acids and proteins. And similarly, it needs to be strengthened and nourished ensure it is becomes strong and luscious.
Lash and brow serums work in various ways. Some are made with growth-enhancing formulas that stimulate hair growth, whereas others strive to nourish and repair your existing lashes to help them naturally grow. The aim of these serums is that, after consistent use, the 'telogen' phase of growth will be extended, which in turn will extend the lash and brow growth cycle. Ultimately, lash and brow serums aim to stimulate the growth of new thicker lashes.
How do I use lash and brow serums?
When it comes to how to use these most marvellous of beauty friends, it's important – like with many other serums – to have a consistent routine of daily application. Serums take around a month of consistent use before you will see results. Like with many things in life, good things come to those who wait. Patience is the key here.
