Accord­ing to Guild of pro­fes­sion­al Beau­ty Ther­a­pists — pro­fes­sion­als in the beau­ty indus­try, eye­lash exten­sion pro­ce­dures are now the sec­ond most pop­u­lar in the world and sec­ond only to nail exten­sions.

Such inter­est of the fair sex in their eye­lash­es is eas­i­ly explained. Long and thick eye­lash­es beau­ti­ful­ly frame the look and add depth to it. But you can get them not only in a beau­ty salon, but also at home — replen­ish­ing the sup­ply of valu­able vit­a­mins.

How long does it take to grow eyelashes?

Grow­ing eye­lash­es is no easy task. But for those who do not give up halfway, it gives excel­lent results.

“The con­di­tion of the skin, nails and hair, includ­ing eye­lash­es, reflects the qual­i­ty of human health in gen­er­al and large­ly depends on prop­er nutri­tion,” says the der­ma­tol­o­gist. Justin Heck­stall. “Usu­al­ly, about 90% of the hairs on our body are in the growth phase and about 10% are in the rest­ing and shed­ding phas­es.”

“Each indi­vid­ual eye­lash is pro­grammed to reach a cer­tain length, after which it falls out and a new eye­lash emerges from the fol­li­cle,” adds the tri­chol­o­gist. Trisha Buller. — The entire cycle of growth and loss of eye­lash­es can take from one to six months. But it should be not­ed that the actu­al length of the eye­lash­es is main­ly depen­dent on genet­ics.

But is it pos­si­ble to stim­u­late the growth of eye­lash­es? Experts say it’s real.

8 important vitamins for eyelash growth

“Although the length of eye­lash­es is large­ly deter­mined by hered­i­ty, nutri­tion also plays an impor­tant role,” says the oph­thal­mol­o­gist. Vic Shar­ma. “Peo­ple who don’t get enough nutri­ents from food have short­er eye­lash growth cycles and pre­ma­ture eye­lash loss.”

What vit­a­mins in nutri­tion should you pay atten­tion to first of all?

Vitamin E

Vitamin E

It is called the beau­ty vit­a­min. It has antiox­i­dant prop­er­ties, is able to strength­en the fol­li­cles of the eye­lash­es and pre­vent their dam­age by free rad­i­cals. And it also helps to improve blood cir­cu­la­tion, which means the time­ly sup­ply of nutri­ents and oxy­gen to the root of the eye­lash­es and their healthy growth. And in beau­ty treat­ments, vit­a­min E acts as a con­di­tion­er, mois­tur­iz­ing eye­lash­es and pre­vent­ing them from dry­ness and brit­tle­ness.

Where to find? Vit­a­min E is found in sun­flower seeds, pine nuts, almonds, pis­ta­chios, spinach, cab­bage, pars­ley, rose hips, dried apri­cots, salmon, pike perch and avo­ca­dos.


Before going to bed, apply a drop of vit­a­min E oil solu­tion to the entire length of the eye­lash­es, and in the morn­ing remove the excess with a tis­sue. This pro­ce­dure will strength­en the eye­lash­es and pre­vent them from break­ing off.

Vitamin B2

B vit­a­mins are need­ed by the body to pro­duce ker­atin, the main build­ing block that makes up hair, skin and nails. They help pre­vent lash­es from falling out and pro­mote their healthy growth.

Vit­a­min B2, also known as riboflavin, keeps eye­lash­es healthy as it is involved in the pro­duc­tion of an oily sub­stance that mois­tur­izes eye­lash­es. Thanks to this, they do not break off and reach their max­i­mum length.

Where to find? A lot of vit­a­min B2 in dairy prod­ucts, green leafy veg­eta­bles, liv­er, eggs, buck­wheat, legumes.

Vitamin B3

Vitamin B3

The sec­ond name of this vit­a­min is niacin. Blood flow to the hair fol­li­cles and their growth depend on it. It also pre­vents lash­es from dry­ing out and break­ing. This vit­a­min also helps the body absorb pro­teins from food, there­by pro­duc­ing enough ker­atin for the active growth of new hairs.

Where to find? Sources of biotin include sun­flower seeds, beef liv­er, salmon, tilapia, tuna, peanuts, mush­rooms, and aspara­gus.


Con­sid­er pur­chas­ing an eye­lash serum with vit­a­min B3 and hyaluron­ic acid. If you use it every day, the eye­lash­es will look gor­geous and increase in length faster.

Vitamin B5

Vit­a­min B5, or pan­tothenic acid, can be found in many sham­poos, con­di­tion­ers, and hair con­di­tion­ers, as it pro­vides many ben­e­fits to the body’s hair­line. For the active growth of eye­lash­es, vit­a­min B5 is also nec­es­sary — it strength­ens the hair fol­li­cles and main­tains the flex­i­bil­i­ty and elas­tic­i­ty of the hairs.

Where to find? Deli­cious sources of vit­a­min B5 include sweet pota­toes, avo­ca­dos, broc­coli, organ meats, egg yolks, and toma­toes.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12

Sev­er­al stud­ies have linked defi­cien­cy of this vit­a­min to dam­age and hair loss, includ­ing eye­brows and eye­lash­es. Most often, a lack of a valu­able sub­stance is found in adher­ents of a plant-based diet, preg­nant women and the elder­ly.

Where to find? The best sources of vit­a­min B12 are ani­mal prod­ucts such as liv­er, octo­pus, beef, sea bass, carp, pork, rab­bit, lamb, and sar­dines. But this vit­a­min is also present in dairy prod­ucts (most of all in cheese), as well as in chick­en eggs.


Intro­duce Vit­a­min B12 into Beau­ty Treat­ments! Use cas­tor oil for this. In addi­tion to this vit­a­min, it is a store­house of vit­a­min A, as well as a rare acid — reci­nole­ic, which is very impor­tant for hair growth.

Apply cas­tor oil to your eye­lash­es once a day with a spe­cial brush and very soon they will become stronger and thick­er.

Vitamin A

It is nec­es­sary for the growth of all cells in the body, includ­ing the growth of eye­lash­es. It helps the glands of the skin to pro­duce an oily sub­stance — a lubri­cant for the eye­lash­es, thanks to which the hairs do not dry out and remain strong and flex­i­ble for a long time. Vit­a­min A defi­cien­cy leads to eye­lash loss. But its sur­plus gives the same side effect. There­fore, it is bet­ter to get vit­a­min A from food — then there will be no excess of the vit­a­min.

Where to find? One of the best sources of vit­a­min A is fish oil, which is very use­ful dur­ing colds. But plen­ty of the vit­a­min is also found in dairy prod­ucts, eggs, yogurt, car­rots, sweet pota­toes, spinach, kale, and pump­kin seeds.

Vitamin B7

Vitamin B7

Many peo­ple know this vit­a­min under the name biotin. It is often includ­ed in vit­a­min and min­er­al com­plex­es for the growth of eye­lash­es, nails and hair. Accord­ing to experts Uni­ver­si­ty of Mary­land Med­ical Cen­terhair loss and split ends are often asso­ci­at­ed with biotin defi­cien­cy.

Suf­fer from its lack and eye­lash­es. This is because the hairs are made of ker­atin, for the syn­the­sis of which the body needs biotin.

Where to find? Many foods are rich in biotin. These are liv­er, kid­neys, cod, cur­rants, milk and dairy prod­ucts, cher­ries, oranges, apri­cots, mush­rooms, soy­beans, eggs and green peas.


Pre­pare eye­lash growth serum with biotin at home! To do this, con­nect 1 tbsp. a spoon­ful of cas­tor oil, 2 vit­a­min E cap­sules (or 1 tea­spoon of an oil solu­tion) and ¼ tbsp. spoons of biotin pow­der.

Mix well, wait for the pow­der to dis­solve into the oil, and use as direct­ed every day.

Vitamin C

A pow­er­ful antiox­i­dant, vit­a­min C helps the body stay healthy and pro­long youth­ful­ness, but few peo­ple know that it is very impor­tant for healthy eye­lash growth. It helps repair dam­aged hair fol­li­cles, stim­u­lates col­la­gen pro­duc­tion and reduces the risk of break­ing weak hairs.

Where to find? There is no lack of vit­a­min C in food. They are rich in all vari­eties of cab­bage, rose hips, apples and cit­rus fruits, toma­toes, straw­ber­ries, dog­wood, pota­toes, black cur­rants and kiwi.

Eat right, watch the amount of vit­a­mins in the body, and eye­lash­es will delight in length, den­si­ty and den­si­ty!
