Did you notice your eyebrows and eyelashes getting thinner?
Remembering the days when you don’t have to put makeup to make it full?
Thinning of eyebrows and eyelashes are normal as part of the aging process. As we age, eyelash follicles (the opening in the skin through which the lash grows) can slow or stop producing new lashes altogether. Aside from age, there are other reasons why we get thinner eyelashes. These could be the following:
- Scrubbing or rubbing eyelashes to hard, which can damage the skin and cause delicate eyelashes to fall out.
- medical conditions
- some medication and treatments
Similarly, for eyebrows, aging and hormonal issues may add to thin out your brows. Sometimes it’s a symptom of thyroid deficiency, reproductive hormone changes can also play a part that is why hair loss including the eyebrows area happens during postpartum and during menopause.
But don’t fret! There are ways you can keep your brows and eyelashes looking thick and full (even if they’re getting thinner).
1. Take care when waxing, plucking and threading your brows.
Check out some tutorials on how to properly groom your brows, or go to a salon and let the experts do their magic!
2. Try Microblading for a more permanent solution.
Microblading is a semi-permanent way to fill in brows that looks more natural than the permanent makeup to tattooing. It doesn’t go as deep into the skin and the goal is to create delicate strokes that mimic hairs that results in a natural, more complete eyebrow. Beauty Forever Spa Center offers this service by certified microblading therapists. Click here to know more about this service.
3. Over the counter cosmetic products and lash-boosting serums.
These have vitamins and moisturizes to enhance eyebrows and eyelashes. One popular brand is the AQ Lash.
4. False Eyelashes
These are long strips to be placed on your eyelid or as single hairs, often affixed with glue to supplement existing lashes. There are thousands of false eyelashes in the market so make sure to check which ones are good. It is more advisable that you get the semi-permanent 100% pure human hair eyelash extension to prevent additional causes of thinning. Have a professional to put this for you to ensure proper application. Beauty Forever offers eyelash extension with the options of refill after 2 or 3 weeks after the regular application.
Many women turn to make-up, most commonly mascara and eyebrow pencils which come in lash extending or thickening formulation. Be sure to replace your mascara every three months to avoid infection.
