A woman in China with the world’s longest eyelashes has broken her own record with an astonishing eight inch eyelash which she says was gifted by Buddha. 

You Jianzia, from the southern city of Changzhou, had originally set the Guinness World Record in 2016 when her eyelash measured 4.88 inches (12.5 cm).

But five years on, her eyelashes have nearly doubled in length with one on her left upper eyelid reaching a new record of eight inches (20.5 cm).

Doctors have been left baffled by her condition, which has meant her eyelashes now fall down her cheeks and even past her jaw.

But Jianzia believes her long eyelashes are a ‘gift given by the Buddha’ after she spent a year and a half in the mountains on a nature retreat.

‘I first realised that my eyelashes were growing in 2015,’ she said. ‘They continue to grow slowly, becoming longer and longer.   

‘I did visit medical professionals to find out why my eyelashes are longer than other people’s eyelashes. The doctor couldn’t explain this, and he felt it was really amazing.
