They continue to grow slowly, becoming longer and longer,” Jianxia told Guinness World Records. “I did visit medical professionals to find out why my eyelashes are longer than others people’s eyelashes. The doctor couldn’t explain this, and he felt it was really amazing.”
“I also tried to find scientific reasons such as genes or something else. However, none of my family have long eyelashes like me, so it can’t be explained,” she said.
Jianxia’s longest lash, located on the upper eyelid of her left eye, was officially measured at 8 inches, setting a new record.
