Although our eyes may be a relatively small part of our body, they have always attracted a large amount of attention! It is through our eyes that we connect with other people, how we hold attention, and of course how we flutter if we flirt … If our eyes are the windows to our souls, then our eyelashes are the garden path that takes us there.

It’s most girls’ dream to have long, luscious lashes, but for most of us it’s not always possible. It’s natural to shed lashes as they have a short growth cycle of 12 weeks (unlike the hair on our head … not necessarily a bad thing … up to 1 metre long lashes would be waaaay too long). Naturally, we lose between 1 and 4 eyelashes a day, however there are other reasons that can cause your eyelashes to fall out more frequently or even permanently, and we touch on these below.

1. Continual Applications of Eyelash Extensions

While it may be tempting to go the ‘quick fix route’ to achieve desired flirty eyes, it’s both an expensive and ultimately eyelash-damaging path. When that fakey falls out it can take your natural lash with it. Also, overfilling of fake lashes adds excessive weight to your eye lid which also causes shedding. Then there are also issues with hygiene, bacterial infections, eye irritations to glue can all cause trauma to the eye lid and result in loss of eyelashes.

2. Health Reasons

It seems most women these days have a thyroid problem of some sort. Did you know that an under-active or over-active thyroid both can cause loss of eyelashes and eyebrows? Another medical condition is Alopecia, a health condition that affects the immune system resulting in hair falling out. There is no cure for Alopecia itself, but eyelash serums will help. Chemotherapy, while often an essential therapy for cancer patients, also causes hair loss. The hair will usually grow back, however, most women will wish to speed up this process.

3. Beauty Habits

While we go to great efforts to enhance our eyes, often we end up being our own worst enemy! Poor hygiene or not-so-great beauty habits can damage our lashes. Using eye make-up that’s out of date, not removing mascara at night, excessive rubbing of your lashes while removing makeup and applying makeup inside the lash line blocks the oil glands that protect your eye all damage our lashes health.

4. Healthy Lifestyle

A nutritious diet is important for all aspects of our health; this includes your eyelashes! Diets rich in vitamins and protein can stimulate lash growth. Try adding more salmon, eggs, soy protein and vitamin B to your diet to boost your lashes chance of a long life!

5. Age

We’ve all admired the lovely long lashes on small children. Sadly, the fact is our lashes become sparser as we age. 50% of menopausal women noted they had thinning hair (but more hair on their chins … another story …).
