Whether it’s moisturizing them with various oils and serums or simply combing them through, there are plenty of easy and effective ways to make your lashes grow longer and stronger.

Why Your Eyelashes Aren’t Growing Or Are Falling Out.

According to a dermatologist in private practice in Los Angeles, Dr. Tsippora Shainhouse, MD, FAAD, your eyelashes could be on the shorter side for a few reasons. “Your eyelashes become brittle and fragile due to products like mascara or medicated eye drops that may dry out the hair or cause the lashes to break mid-shaft.” Take care when introducing a new eye product into your routine.

Dr. Shainhouse calls out one additional reason your eyelashes could be shorter: if you rub your eyes frequently. She says, “This can both brake eyelashes and pull them out prematurely. Because lashes grow on a four- to eight-week cycle, the hairs will not grow right back in if you pull them out, which will leave your fringe looking short and sparse.”
