Have you noticed your eyelashes are looking a bit meh? A lack of vitamin D (the "sunshine vitamin") can prevent them from growing to their full potential during the winter months. So if you've spotted some sparse areas or shorter-than-usual lashes, it's probably because, just like plants, they need some sun and a Miracle-Gro–like formula. In the absence of any real, potent sunshine, enter eyelash-growth serums.

Usually containing peptides, amino acids, hair-loving oils and vitamin B7 (better known as biotin, a vitamin that's crucial in preventing hair loss), these concoctions give your lashes all they need to stay in the anagen (or growth) phase longer and prevent lashes from shedding, so you'll have longer lashes and more of them.

For the devoted, there are serums that you apply daily to the roots; otherwise, there are lash primers and even mascaras that have woven lash-boosting serums into a multitasking product so you can treat your lashes without adding an extra step into your routine. So which eyelash-growth serum should you choose? Our pals over at Rank & Style have revealed the 10 best eyelash-growth serums in the world. Keep scrolling for the best serums on the internet, then head over to Rank & Style to see which ones just missed the cut.
