Why are my eyelashes falling out?

Why are my eyelashes falling out?

Have you discovered eyelashes on your pillow or on a cotton pad after removing your makeup? Several factors could be the cause. This is not a worrying phenomenon and there are solutions available to address it.

Eyelash Loss: What are the Causes?

The lifespan of an eyelash is relatively short and does not exceed more than three months. Therefore, it is normal, as part of the hair cycle, for the eyelash to fall out to be replaced by another. However, in the case of more abundant fallout, it is appropriate to question the origin of the problem.

Initially, it is crucial to closely examine the composition of makeup products, as certain overly harsh components can weaken the eyelashes. Opt for formulations based on ingredients of natural origin, particularly during the phase of makeup removal. It's also worth noting that mascaras, pencils, and eyeshadows can deteriorate over the weeks. Additionally, it should be emphasized that not properly and consistently removing eye makeup at the end of the day can weaken the eyelashes and eventually cause them to fall out.

Stress, nutritional deficiencies, and hormonal fluctuations can also accelerate eyelash loss. If no changes are observed in the products used, then a medical consultation and potential blood tests are recommended.

Finally, if none of the above reasons seem to apply, it is important to note that improper use of an eyelash curler alone can be responsible for more abundant fallout.

How can we halt hair loss and stimulate regrowth?

In order to limit eyelash loss, the first step involves nourishing and strengthening them: vegetable oils, targeted serum,... Various treatments are available in the cosmetics market. Beautiful eyelashes also require a healthy diet. While vegetable oils can be greatly beneficial when applied locally, it is also essential to incorporate them into your diet, along with foods rich in vitamins A, B, and E, and omega-3.

What can you do while waiting for your eyelashes to regrow?

It is advised not to disrupt the natural regrowth cycle of eyelashes in the event of sudden loss. While it may be tempting to resort to the application of false eyelashes in a salon, the components used to attach them may further weaken this already sensitive area around the eye. Regardless of the reason for the eyelash loss, they will regrow at their own pace, and the eye will regain its usual appearance. If these episodes were to recur regularly, then seeking a doctor's opinion may be necessary.
