At 4.88 inches long, You Jianxia of Shanghai, China, has the world’s longest eyelashes, which come down to her chin.

“They are a part of my body, so I never find them inconvenient,” You said in an interview with Guinness World Records.

She said her eyelashes began growing four years ago during an 18-month nature retreat.

Since then, she credits living in harmony with nature for the extraordinary length of her lashes, and views them as a sign of her health and well-being.

Her daily care routine involves cleaning them gently when she washes her face.

Her eyelashes were laid flat on a ruler for the official judging and measured three times in front of individual witnesses, according to the Guinness World Records.
