Eyelashes fall out?


why do my eyelashes always fall out?

I was worried it was my eyelash curler pulling at them so I stopped using it for a while, but they still fall out constantly. More of them fall out of my right eye than my left, and I don't know what's going on!

It looks really weird too because i'll only have a few eyelashes on one eye and a lot on the other, and I hate using fake eyelashes.

(also not my mascara because I stopped using mascara in the summer and it continued to happen)

anyone have this problem?
advice/know what's going on?

Some tips


That sounds a bit worrying alright, have you had it checked out by a doctor to make sure it's not anything serious?

Make sure you fully remove all your eye-make up whenever you wear any, I find using a face wipe isn't quite good enough, you need to rinse with water to really make sure you are getting rid of everything. When I have heavy eye make-up on I rub Vaseline onto my eyes to loosen it & then wipe it with a wet cloth until everything is gone.

Use an eye wash in case there are any make-up particles inside your eye causing it

Get pure Castor Oil & apply this to your lash line every night, (you can use it on your brows too if you want to fill them out), this encourages hair growth so hopefully you can start refilling those bad boys & get those lashes fluttering!

Hope this helps! x

consider your overall health

Sometimes these sorts of issues (e.g. hair loss, weak/brittle nails, etc) can be an indication of a health issue. It might be something as simple as a vitamin deficiency.

Do you have other areas of thinning, such as eyebrows or scalp hair? What about your digestive health, stress levels, etc?

I'm not an expert, so these comments are off the top of my head. However, I did notice during and/or after each of my pregnancies that I had changes in my eyebrow hair, eyelashes, and texture/fullness of my regular hair. I know that many pregnant women experience this, and considering the changes our bodies go through during a major hormonal change it seems logical.

I would suggest talking to your doctor about this. It's probably nothing to worry about, but it could be a symptom of something else going on in your body. If that's the case, the sooner you find out, the sooner you can do something about it!

Physician is a must!

I would definitely check with a physician. It wouldn't hurt to find out the answer!

Diet Issues?

Like @mamaluv said, it does sound like some sort of vitamin deficiency or diet issue. Are you missing something in your diet? You should check with a physician to be sure. Also biotin is known to help with hair and nails, you could look into taking that!
