This article looks at why eyelashes fall out and how to prevent this problem.
Why are my eye-lashes falling out?
Eyelashes falling out
Long, thick eyelashes are constant beauty goals for most women. Unfortunately, for most of us, achieving the full lashed look takes work, and this can ultimately take its toll on our delicate lashes and do more harm than good.
Helping the eyelashes grow back While it’s normal to lose the odd eyelash now and then during the cycle of re-growth, there are a number of things which can cause eyelashes to fall out at an accelerated and worrying rate. Taking care to avoid harming your eyelashes during your beauty routine can help to slow this loss down and put you on the road to full, healthy lashes again.
Makeup removal The eye area is one of the most delicate parts of the body and it should always be treated with care and a gentle touch. Never pull or wipe your eyes when removing eye-makeup. Many mascara brands now come in virtually indestructible waterproof, smudge proof formations, which is great for creating a long-lasting look, but not so great for the health of your lashes. Difficulty to remove mascara means more tugging and wiping at your lashes at the end of the day. Avoid waterproof brands and only use a few light coats of water soluble mascara on a daily basis. Invest in a good eye makeup removal lotion which will do the job without causing excessive wear and tear to your eyelashes. Eyelash curlers While eyelash curlers are great for creating a wide eyed look, using them frequently can damage the lashes, causing them to break or fall out. Try to save them for special occasions. If you do want to use curlers regularly, invest in the best you can afford and be sure to clean the sponge tip regularly-dirt and mascara can get caught here and cause the curlers to stick to and pull at your lashes during curling.
Avoid rubbing your eyes
Eye rubbing As with damage from make-up removal, excessive eye rubbing can damage the lashes and cause more than normal to fall out. If you are constantly rubbing your eyes because they are itchy and you are irritated, it is possible that you have an undiagnosed allergy. Think about changing the products you use around your eyes or even switching your washing powder and consider consulting your doctor if the problem persists.
