A man in Ukraine believes a secret food is causing him to grow incredibly long eyelashes.

The Daily Mirror reported that 58-year-old Valery Smagiy plans to have his eyelashes measured for the Guinness Book of World Records.

He claims his lashes grew after eating a special food, but is not saying what the food is. He said he is considering marketing the food.

Smagiy said his eyelashes get a lot of attention from women. He said women stop him in the streets and ask him what his secret is.

“Whether it’s man or woman, most people don’t seem to pay much attention when I’m talking to them because they’re always looking at my eyelashes,” he said, according to the Daily Mirror.
