Every girl dreams of long, thick and beautiful eyelashes. Young ladies spend a large amount of time and money to grow them to the highest possible level. Among this mass of admirers of beauty standards there are people whom nature has rewarded from birth with such a generous and chic gift. And, oddly enough, most of them are representatives of the stronger sex.

World record

It was a man who was able to wipe the nose of all women on the planet, without exception, by growing the longest eyelashes in the world. Guinness World Record belongs to Indian Phuto Rav Mauli, who lives near the capital Delhi. Amazingly, the length of his eyelashes is 4 centimeters and 7 millimeters! When a man closes his eyes, the hairs that frame the eyelid touch the lower lip. He claims that he has never cared for them, using special means for growth. He has this appearance as much as he remembers himself.

As a child, Phuto was very ashamed of his half female appearance. The boys often teased him with a "girl", which is why he grew a little notorious and lonely. Interesting, but the agents of the Book of Records discovered a man by chance. They arrived in the province in 2004 to register another achievement. As a result, we found 52-year-old Phuto, who has the longest eyelashes in the world (a record). Photo of this man, unfortunately, in the Guinness book is missing.

Russian record holder

You might be surprised, but this is also a representative of the stronger sex, only so far small. A seven-year-old boy from Moscow Muin Buchonayev can boast of this achievement. Already at such a young age his eyelashes grew to 3.6 centimeters. The most interesting thing is that they continue to actively grow in size. If it goes on like this, then the Russian will own the longest eyelashes in the world: the Indian record can be beaten in a dozen years.

The parents of the baby say that with such a feature their son was born. His amazing eyelashes were noticed in the maternity ward, which made him famous for the whole hospital. By the way, the boy's eyebrows are also very long. People often think they are artificial. The family is very surprised by this anomaly lad. They say that in their family is the first such case.

The longest "Ukrainian" eyelashes

Oksana Shikalyuk - a girl with the longest eyelashes. In the world, she essentially did not reach the record, but in her homeland she became very famous. Such a chic, thick and, most importantly, a long hairline eyes can not boast of any of her compatriot. The achievement was recorded by representatives of the “National Register of Records” on December 7, 2010. Exactly at 8 hours and 35 minutes, they pulled out one eyelash from Oksana and measured it. She was 18.5 millimeters in length.

The procedure was carried out live - in the morning program of the “New Channel”. A trichologist invited to the studio carefully removed the girl's eyelash and placed it between two glasses moistened with droplets of purified water. Only in this way the hair could fully straighten. By the way, for comparison, the hair was also removed from the eye of the host program - the announcer's eyelash was two times smaller than Oksana Shikalyuk.

Record animals

Mother Nature took care of our younger brothers, also endowing them with this wealth. And she did it selectively, bestowing only those who need it because of the particular climate or living conditions. It is not surprising that the camel had the longest eyelashes in the world. The photo of this animal found in any zoological encyclopedia demonstrates achievement. The pictures with the naked eye can be seen that the hunchback eyelashes are very long and thick.

In fact, on his eyelids only 5 centimeter hairs grow. But the eyelashes of the beast are very hard and shaggy, so they seem so huge. They are necessary for camels in order to protect the visual organ from the sand in the desert. The sight of these animals is simply magnificent: they see a person at a distance of a kilometer, and the car is noticed for as much as 5 km, which is simply amazing.

Are they always real?

To see if we really have the longest eyelashes in the world, a photo of a particular person is sometimes not enough. Therefore, representatives of the Guinness Book of Records always go to the site to personally verify, record the achievement and draw up the appropriate protocol. As for the girl, which will be discussed further, the agents have never seen this young lady. What to say, even her name nobody knows. Accordingly, her long eyelashes can be a regular fake. If you look at a photo of an Asian beauty, it becomes clear: these are not even eyelashes, but hair that frames the eyes. They are so long that one can whip up pigtails absolutely calmly.

Experts have repeatedly analyzed the images of this woman and came to the conclusion: it can not be called a man with the longest eyelashes in the world. Photos are real, but the hairs on the eyelid are the purest fake. If you look closely, then on the line of the eye visible white spots, which are likely to be glue. Therefore, the young lady can not be considered a record holder. Perhaps she just joked by posting such unusual pictures. But it became famous and attracted the attention of the entire world community.

How to grow long eyelashes?

The following oils are ideal for this purpose: castor, burdock, sea buckthorn, almond and peach. The old brush from the mascara should be very carefully washed, dunk it in a liquid and applied to the cilia. This mask should be left for the whole night. They say that with regular procedures you will end up with a great result. No, it will not be the longest eyelashes in the world, but the fact that they will increase significantly is a fact.

Vitamins and aloe juice can be added to oils - these ingredients also stimulate hair growth. Such masks are well stored in the refrigerator, but before use they should be heated in a water bath. Women of fashion recommend using special compresses for the growth of eyelashes. To do this, buy in the pharmacy various herbs - chamomile, calendula, nettle - and make a decoction of equal proportions. Then soak the cotton pads in the liquid and put them on the eyes. You need to hold the compress for 20 minutes, then wash and apply a special cream on the eyelids.

What are dangerous long eyelashes?

It turns out that the dream of having the longest eyelashes in the world has its dark side. Scientists have conducted many studies and found that they can trigger the development of ophthalmologic diseases - conjunctivitis and "dry eye syndrome." Evolution has determined for humans the optimal length of eyelashes - a third of the width of the eye. We need hair of this size to prevent the visual organ from drying out, they protect it from small insects and dust. Shadows from hairs form a special microclimate in which stable humidity and temperature are maintained, as well as other conditions for the normal functioning of the cornea and retina.

Scientists have found that if the length of eyelashes exceeds the optimal size, the eye microclimate is disturbed: more dust accumulates on it, moisture “evaporates”. Therefore, they are sure that the longest eyelashes in the world bring more problems than pleasure. In addition, they are uncomfortable and do not always have an aesthetic appearance. Fashionistas also recommend not to get involved in false eyelashes, preferring a natural and natural look.

Interesting Facts

You can’t grow the longest eyelashes in the world, if heredity has pumped up. After all, their pomp, density and length are directly dependent on genetics. The life span of each hair on the eyelid is three months. At the same time, they begin to grow in a person even when he is in the womb — the eighth week of pregnancy. The upper eyelid contains 200 cilia, the lower eyelid contains about 100. They never grow in a solid, even line — only in uneven, irregular rows. Some medications significantly slow down the growth of eyelashes, aspirin, for example.

Experts believe that by the hairs of the eyelid one can judge the character of a person. A small number of them speaks of aggression, anger. By the way, women began painting their eyelashes in the times of Cleopatra, using lead or antimony pounded in water for this purpose. It was believed that the painted hairs on the eyes can scare evil spirits and evil spirits. Nowadays mascara-covered eyelashes make a woman attractive: cosmetics emphasize the beauty of the eyes and make the look expressive and sexy.
