Q Tips can be used to apply castor oil to eyelashes.
Castor oil is a colorless vegetable oil that can lengthen and thicken eyelashes. This oil works by moisturizing and strengthening the eyelashes, which makes them less prone to breakage. To use castor oil for eyelashes, apply the oil to the base of your clean eyelashes every night. In the morning, gently wash off the oil from your eyelashes with water or a mild facial cleanser. When used nightly, castor oil should enhance your lashes in a few weeks.
When applied carefully, castor oil can help make eyelashes look longer, fuller and healthier.
To start using castor oil on your eyelashes, buy an all-natural castor oil. Keep the oil in an easily accessible place next to your toiletries. This should help you remember to apply the oil before going to bed at night. While you can use castor oil throughout the day, applying it at night will give your lashes more time to saturate and start growing your lashes.
Castor oil can be used at night and washed off the next morning.
Before applying castor oil to your eyelashes, wash your face, paying close attention to removing eye makeup. Once your makeup has been removed, dip a clean mascara wand or Q-tip® in castor oil. Remove any excess oil from the wand and apply the oil starting at the base of the lashes. When using castor oil for your eyelashes, be careful not to get the oil in your eyes. If the oil gets in your eyes, immediately wash the area with water to avoid irritation.

The next step in using castor oil for eyelashes is to remove the oil in the morning. When dressing for the day, gently wash off the oil from your eyelashes with water or a makeup remover. To prevent eyelash loss, do not rub or pull the eyelashes. If you forget to remove the oil, your makeup may not adhere to your skin and lashes. You can also use castor oil to make your lashes look healthy and luminous if you decide not to wear eye makeup.
It can take several weeks for a person to notice the results of using castor oil for eyelashes.
To get the full benefits of castor oil and eyelash growth, it’s important to give the oil enough time to improve the condition of your eyelashes. When using castor oil for eyelashes, it may take several weeks before you start to notice results. To maintain your results, don’t stop using castor oil when your lashes start to look fuller. As eyelashes have a life cycle of just a few weeks, they will revert to their original state if you decide to stop using castor oil. Keep applying castor oil every night or several times a week to keep your lashes thick and long.
