Guinness World Records: This Lady Has Got Eyelashes That Go Farther Than Our Eyesight!
When it comes to Guinness World Records, there are all sorts of weird records that happen to find their winners in the archives. But what according to you would be the weirdest human body part related world record ever made? Well, here is a lady that is known to have the longest eyelashes in the world. And no we are not kidding.
According to the book, You Jianxia of Shanghai, who was born in 1968 has the longest eyelashes with a lash on her upper eyelid that measures up to 12.4 centimeters which is about 4.88 inches. And since the hair is known to grow and the record was last recorded in June 2016, we are wondering what the present length might be.
Jianxia discovered the scarily long lash “during an 18-month nature retreat she embarked on in 2013.” According to the publishers, “She puts the growth down to the life she leads at one with nature.”
Jianxia will be finding her name in the Guinness World Records 2018 book, which has already hit the shelves this year.
Also added to the book is another addition that owes to having the longest set of fingernails. The record is set by Houston-based nail artist Ayanna Williams, 60, who grew out her nails for 23 years until they reached their current length of almost 19 feet.
And in case you are wondering about her nail lengthening routine, it includes cleaning them daily with antibacterial soap and avoiding washing the dishes.
There obviously are some real time issues like putting your pants on and painting them that eventually take up an entire week but we guess holding a record just makes it a lot better!
Let’s see what else we can find for you in the bizarre world by next time! Until then let’s just keep fluttering our eyelashes.
