Take Good Care of Your Eyelashes and Enhance Your Looks

Updated on August 31, 2015

About Eyelashes

An eyelash is one feature of the eye which can enhance your beauty and draw attention to it, aside from providing a kind of shade to protect your eyes from sunlight. It also protects your eyes from harmful materials from outside which can be harmful to them like dust, fibers and other small matters in the air. Without those eyelashes to cover your eyes from the brightness, you will never be able to open those wonderful eyes of yours.

Eyelashes are just like those hairs in some other parts of the body which grow, fall out and grow again. They need a healthy lifestyle and hygiene to make them grow healthy and strong. Hair follicles of hair roots suck nutrients from the body in order to grow. If not properly supplied with enough nutrients, they will not grow well and will easily break off or shed between every growth cycle.

Taking Care of Your Eyelashes

Growth Cycle of Eyelashes

An eyelash’s growth cycle is divided into three phases: Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen.

The Anagen Phase is when your eyelashes grow. A single hair strand will grow in a period of 7 weeks to 2 months. This stage accounts for about 1/3 of your full eyelashes. However, the growth of your eyelashes is mostly dependent on various factors inherent in your lifestyle. If you want to increase your eyelashes growth probability, here are some tips for you to consider:

1. Cut back on your alcohol intake.

2. Stop smoking.

3. Drink plenty of water

4. Have a properly balanced diet.

Likewise, to minimize hair fall outs on your eyelashes, be gentle with your eyes. Rough wiping of your eyelashes with a towel or rubbing them with your hands will cause some hair to fall unnaturally.


After the Anagen is the Catagen Phase. This is one part of its cycle when eyelashes stops growing for about 3 weeks.

Lastly, the last phase of the cycle is the Telogen Phase, the stage when hairs fall off and give way to hair re-growth. However, as we grow old, lesser numbers of hair grows back as our body’s ability to regenerate subsides. We can see that our eyelashes are getting thinner than when they were years back. If you feel awful about it, you may visit your physician and ask for some available serum which you could use to improve the growth of your eyelashes

Since normally hair doesn't grow nor fall altogether at the same time, you will have eyelashes throughout the cycle. Nonetheless, eyelashes growth rate varies from one individual to another. Factors such as stress, trauma, and depression may affect the growth and thickness of your eyelashes just as they affect hair growth in other parts of your body.

Finally, keeping your body healthy on the inside will always result to a healthy and radiating outward appearance.
