Eyelashes Disappearing!!!!

Your eyelashes can't grow longer if they are falling out. Eyelash loss is a very disturbing and frightening experience, especially for women since they are such a crucial asset for beauty. If you notice that your eyelashes are disappearing in clumps or gradually, here are some factors you'll want to think about:

Questions to ask yourself:

  • Have you been undergoing stress lately?
  • Does alopecia run in your family?
  • Have you been wearing a lot of makeup?
  • Have you been exposed to any allergens?
  • Do you pull your eyelashes?
Some causes of eyelash loss are:

  • Alopecia, a disease which causes patchy or complete hairloss.
  • Thyroid troubles.
  • Plucking and pulling of the lashes. If done constantly pulling your lashes will inhibit future growth.
  • Allergic reactions, especially to makeup.
  • Aging. There's really nothing that can be done to reverse this.
To bring your eyelashes back, rub Vaseline on them nightly and keep your hands away. Don't wear any makeup. Keep a healthy diet.
