Why are my eyelashes falling out? That’s a question with many possible answers and in this article I’ll go over a few of these reasons.
One thing to keep in mind is that eyelashes are hair and like the rest of the hair on your body old eyelashes will eventually fall out and new ones will grow back and take their place. The problem of course is when your eyelashes are growing in at a slower pace then they are falling out at.
One way eyelashes differ from other hair is that eyelashes grow at a much slower pace than regular hair, which obviously can be very frustrating if they start falling out quicker than usual.
So assuming you’re asking the question “Why are my eyelashes falling out?” because your eyelashes are falling out quicker than usual, let’s look into the possible causes.
It’s kind of ironic that we use mascara to accentuate our eyelashes but if not used properly or excessively mascara can actually cause eyelashes to fall out. There are many reasons why your eyelashes fall out, but here are some of the ones that revolve around mascara:
Not having the correct vitamins in your diet can cause your hair to fall out and that includes eyelashes. If you think your eyelashes are falling out because of your vitamin intake (or I should say lack of vitamin intake) try to eat more foods that contain vitamin A, E and B. Those are vitamins that help promote healthy skin and hair, another option is to take those particular vitamin supplements.
Unless your eyelashes are healthy the eyelash curler may be breaking your lashes instead of curling them. If your eyelashes are dry and brittle they won’t curl like healthy eyelashes would and instead may actually break off.
If you think your eyelashes are kind of dry hold off on using the eyelash curler until you get your eyelashes healthier.
Age Can Also Affect Your Eyelashes
