You see, as we become more mature and years go by, we start to notice that our once long eyelashes are not as long and beautiful as they once were.
They become more sparse and lose their length & volume.
Sometimes our eyelashes feel so short and skimpy that it's even hard to apply our go-to mascara or lash extensions.
But there's an explanation for it!
Partly, we are not to blame ourselves...
You see, as we age and go through menopause it often results in hormonal imbalances that thin our hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes.
Not to speak about different illnesses that have struck some of us and require us to use medication that leaves us with no beauty hair at all...
But here you are not to be blamed.
These things are out of our own control which is exactly why our worries and focus should not be on this reason.
If anything, we should embrace this process with our heads held high and tap ourselves on our shoulder.
But is there anything that we can do to prevent having our lashes thinned even more that they become non-existent?
And this is where things become very critical.
It's not a secret that by wanting to have more length and volume for our eyelashes we have turned ourselves into 'mascara junkies' or relying on expensive eyelash extensions.
We have tried almost every mascara out there (drug store and designer).
Yet, they all promise the same.
And the harsh truth is that most of the mascaras we buy end up back in our makeup drawer only used a couple of times (you'll soon understand why it keeps happening when we speak about the whole beauty industry that's geared towards the 24-year-old eyelashes)
After these years full of promise, we can finally say: we have heard it all!
But by doing this we actually do much bigger damage to our eyelashes than the natural aging process!
Actually, because of the harsh removal process, all the water-proof mascaras we've tried or use on a daily basis tend to pluck out most of the remaining eyelashes we have.
Even expensive eyelash extensions are not better: if applied incorrectly, they can damage almost 90% of your natural lashes.
So as you just learned, there are two things that make our eyelashes thinner:
- the hormonal changes in our body as we age;
- the products you use on your eyelashes that are actually not suited for you.
All of this means the following: in order to let your thinning eyelashes thrive again, you need a mix of ingredients that combats the hormonal imbalances to make them grow again while using a specifically designed product for you.
As you've understood the real reason why your eyelashes are thinning, that doesn't mean you should give up on them.
