Eyelashes are tiny things, but they sure can make a difference. If someone has lush, beautiful, long lashes, people notice. But what if your lashes could do with some improvement – or what if they are falling out altogether? You have a few options, from adjusting your diet and beauty routine to beginning Latisse treatments!
Why am I losing eyelashes?
Most people lose at least a few eyelashes every day, which is completely normal. Some people may have a medical condition that results in excessive eyelash loss, such as an eyelid inflammation, scleroderma, or hyper- or hypothyroidism. Chemotherapy can also cause eyelash loss.
There are other reasons you may be losing eyelashes, though. If you wear mascara and notice a lot of eyelashes falling out, you may be allergic to that brand or to mascara altogether. Also, make sure you gently take off mascara before bed, because it can make eyelashes brittle and break easily. If you use an eyelash curler, use it carefully so that it doesn’t pull out eyelashes, and when you remove makeup you should also do so carefully.
Is there a way to make eyelashes grow?
You can try a multivitamin or a vitamin that is specifically meant to promote the health of hair, skin, and nails. Iron, vitamins A and C, and niacin are good for hair and eyelashes.
You can also start indulging in certain foods – those high in biotin and protein promote the body’s production of keratin, which is good for eyelash health. Biotin can be found in kale, broccoli, cauliflower, and in whole grains.
Latisse is also another great option. It is an FDA-approved serum that darkens and lengthens lashes. With Latisse, you’ll start to see longer, fuller eyelashes within about 4 months. And, it is easy to use – all you have to do is apply it to the upper lashes before bed.
Long, beautiful lashes can be yours! If vitamins and diet aren’t getting you the results you want, contact the offices of Dr. Gary J. Price in New Haven or Fairfield County, CT, for a Latisse consultation. Call (203) 453-6635 today!
