What You Can Do to Make Eyelashes Grow

Many people never stop to wonder just how and when do eyelashes grow. Eyelashes typically grow during the embryonic formation of a baby. They are necessary for the protection of the eye from foreign substances, such as dust or other matter. Some people frequently form allergy issues that will cause the eyelashes to form crusts or even fall out, leading to a further allergen issue. Eyelashes play a very important part in our overall health. However, they probably receive far more attention for their aesthetic value. The Eyelashes have a remarkable impact on our appearance, and the cosmetic industry shows this.

Do Eyelashes Grow

Do eyelashes grow as long as we want them to? Not often, so we turn to cosmetics. Women have been enhancing the appearance of their eyes for many centuries. Kohl was probably the most wide-spread cosmetic that was used for the sultry look that women still seek to this day. While there are a very few recent innovations that now do make eyelashes grow and not just appear longer and thicker, most women are content to use cosmetics to create the illusion. Some of the best cosmetic mascaras for lengthening and thickening are inexpensive and can be found in almost any store in the country.

Before you embark on self improved methods to find out, “Do eyelashes grow?” you need to make sure that there is no underlying health issue that could be causing your lashes to be sparse or brittle. An under-active thyroid gland can often cause body, head, and facial hair to crack and become brittle and lifeless. Vitamin deficiencies can also lead to the lashes not forming properly. It is a good idea to have a yearly physical to stay on top of any medical needs that you may not even be aware of. This can help you keep looking and feeling your best.

If you have problems with your eyelashes falling out, you will probably need to know how and when do eyelashes grow. Eyelashes typically regrow in about four months. If you rub your eyes or do not use hygienic practices for applying makeup or inserting contact lenses, this can lead to a bacterial infection or irritation that causes the lashes to fall out or not grow back in properly. Always use great care and thoroughly wash your hands before touching the eye area, and rotate makeup and applicators every three months. This can stop a problem before it even gets started.
