      My eyelashes are not as long and full as they were when I was younger. Have you tried any of these remedies? Do they really work? If so, how long before you see results?

      These remedies use easily accessible ingredients. An eye pack of green tea sounds pretty good right now, along with a little nap.

      I did not know about any of these solutions. Thank you for sharing them. I am curious about the lemon peel. I am surprised it doesn't sting. But, I guess if it is soaked in oil it should not.
