Woman’s 5-Inch-Long Eyelashes Set a Guinness World Record





If there’s anything women would love to have on their faces, its probably long and thick eyelashes that frame their eyes and cast shadows on their cheeks. In fact, such is the quest for mile-long lashes that mascara alone comprises a million dollar industry.

Now imagine if one were born with enviously long eyelashes that sets a world record for its length. Like Jianxia of Shanghai, China, for instance.

Her lashes are nearly 5 inches long!

Jianxia must have practiced immense discipline taking care of her eye hair. She’s been growing it so carefully for almost 50 years.

The 49-year-old’s upper left eyelid lashes measure 12.4 centimeters, and she has set the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest lashes in the planet.

These eyelashes bring up so many questions from women wanting to know Jianxia’s secrets. How fast do her lashes grow? Have they ever been trimmed? Does she shampoo this part of her anatomy? Have her lashes ever suffered from split ends?

More importantly, are they her own natural lashes and not implants?

According to a Guinness World Records press release, Jianxia supposedly discovered her lashes growing at an amazing rate during an 18-month nature retreat she took in 2013.

She attributes her eyelash growth to leading a life close to nature. In fact, she schedules camping trips for the sole purpose of growing her lashes.

Preferably next to waterfalls so her lashes can mimic the constant flow.

Jianxia’s record-breaking lashes will be featured in the record book’s 2018 edition. When news spreads that living in the midst of nature can stimulate eyelash growth, then the camping and wildlife industry better be prepared for a deluge of women customers.

It’s safe to say that Jianxia won’t have to use any mascara to accentuate her prominent lash hair. She can simply comb it, braid it, or tie a bow on it.

And she’s good to go.
