Eyelashes, unlike hair, should not thin out, because their purpose is to protect the eyes from external influences. Rare eyelashes fall due to age. The reasons for this phenomenon are of a completely different nature.
Victims of beauty
Often eyelashes begin to fall out due to an allergic reaction to cosmetics. And sometimes it's not about the quality of cosmetics, but in its quantity. Not every eyelid will withstand the daily aggressive chemical environment (cosmetics with dust accumulated on it for a day, particles of mud with sebum) and respond to the effect of a slight baldness.
Another kind of beauty victims – lovers to pull out eyelashes with the goal of making it thicker. But this is not right and ends up in failure. The reason – in the damage of the bulb of the cilia, in which from deep interference there are dystrophic changes.
Hormones are guilty.
Hormonal imbalance is responsible for a whole list of disagreements with health, and the loss of eyelashes also enters into it. Among the most common causes – hypothyroidism – a deficiency of thyroid hormones. In this case, you need to contact the endocrinologist for a complete examination.
Unnecessarily nervous life, constant overstrain, fatigue – all this is also quite real reasons for the loss of eyelashes. This is due to the weakening of hair follicles, which are sensitive to various problems in the nervous system.
A subcutaneous demodex mite that settles in a hair bulb can not be seen with the naked eye. But the harm from his presence – easily: there are swelling of the eyelids, redness, tiny sores, "flour" on eyelashes. The eyelashes become much smaller, but they will not fall out immediately. If demodicosis is not treated with the first signs, the condition will worsen.
