Eyelash loss can happen for a number of reasons, some perfectly normal and some a sign of serious health problems. It is normal for one or two lashes to fall out per day, because your hair is constantly renewing, but they should also grow back over time. This is considered your normal lash cycle. If not, you may want to consult with a doctor about why you’re losing eyelashes at an abnormal rate. However in the meantime there are a few things you can do to help ensure that your eyelashes grow back properly, such as changing your makeup routine and keeping your face clean and free of eyelash mites or an overgrowth of skin bacteria which are often the cause of some lashes being lost.

About This Article.

While you can’t make your eyelashes grow back faster after they’ve fallen out, there are things you can do to keep them healthy as they grow back in and prevent more of them from falling out. If you’re unsure why your eyelashes fell out, you may want to avoid wearing makeup around your eyes, since some people can be allergic to certain products and makeup can introduce bacteria that causes eyelash loss. Make sure you wash your face every day with a gentle cleanser to keep bacteria away from your lashes. Try to keep your hands away from your face, since this can spread bacteria to your eyelashes. You should also eat a healthy, balanced diet so you’re getting all the vitamins and nutrients you need for healthy hair growth. For more tips, including how to cover up your eyelash loss, read on!
