Reasons Why Your Eyelashes Could Be Falling Out

Top 5 Reasons

It is normal for eyelashes to fall out each and every day. However, if you are losing over the average of four lashes per day you may want to find out why. We have put together the top 5 most common reasons for eyelash loss. If you are losing over 15 lashes per day, you may want to head to your doctors or a specialist to see what they can do to prevent this from reoccurring.

1. Rubbing Your Eyes

You might not realise quite how much you are rubbing your eyes both during the day and the night. It can become a habit that is hard to get out of if your eyes are irritated or you’re tired or stressed. Rubbing your eyes is bad because you are essentially rubbing dirt into both your eyes and your lashes. Not to mention the bags and wrinkles you will have created in years to come!

2. Eyelash Curlers

Heated eyelash curlers cause the most damage to your eyelashes than any other lash curlers. Think of it this way, if you are heating your hair everyday by curling it you wouldn’t be surprised that your hairs would become damaged and get split ends. The same goes for your eyelashes, you can’t exactly put heat protector spray on your lashes and every time you apply heat you’re damaging your lashes over time. Instead of heated eyelash curlers, try using regular lash curlers. These are much better since you are not applying any heat yet you are still able to get a similar result.

3. Allergies

This can be allergies you have from everyday life such as dust or animals for example. However, sometimes it can be a little more than that. Some people can be allergic to some of the chemicals in makeup products such as mascara and eyelash adhesive. Not to worry, there are many products out there and you will be able to purchase a product that you will not be allergic to. If you find that you are allergic to mascara or you think you could be, take a good break from wearing it to see if your eyelashes stop falling out as much and your eyelashes become healthier again. If this is the case, skip mascara and opt for a pair of false eyelashes.

A common allergy is to the latex in eyelash glue, there are many glues available on the market and a wide range of latex free! Just be sure to check the ingredients list to avoid any repeated problems. This means you won’t have to give up your beloved falsies so suck those tears back up!

The most common reason for the loss of eyelashes is from wearing lash extensions. These can be super damaging to your lashes, especially if they are too heavy for your real eyelashes to cope with. Wearing extensions that are too heavy for your lashes can cause them to fall out due to the constant strain of your lash follicle. Extensions can also damage your lashes if you don’t look after and maintain them. If this is the case, check out our blog on caring and making the most out of lash extensions!


4. Hyperactive Thyroid

With this you can have problems such as hair loss. Hair loss doesn’t only cover the hair on your head but also your eyebrows and eyelashes. It is best to head to your doctors to check if this may be a factor and get a blood test. Hyperactive Thyroid is quite common, at least 1 in 20 can developed this is their lifetime.


5. Alopecia

There is not just one kind of alopecia there is one that can affect your eyelashes and their growth too. If you think this may be the case, then head to your doctor or specialist. Alopecia can be in your genes so if a family member has had this then it is more likely to be alopecia that is causing the loss of eyelashes. However, even if your family doesn’t have a history of alopecia you could still have it. If you are concerned book an appointment at your GP, if you do have it you could be treated with steroids, ointments or injections.
