Condition :

Fine and/or sparse lashes


What are they ?

Like hair, the appearance of our lashes – their length, colour, volume and density – depends largely on our genetics. But that also changes over the course of our lives!

What are the causes?

Certain factors and bad habits weaken our lashes, increase their fallout rate and affect their growth.

Poor care habits

Complete makeup removal and effective cleansing are often part of our beauty routine since it is when skin is purified and toned that it regenerates best and displays a beautiful healthy appearance. However, eyes and eyelashes are often subjected to a lack of tender loving care. When we rub our eyelashes ¬– by reflex or to remove persistent makeup – we weaken them and accelerate their fallout. Over time, they may become less dense and thinner.

Stress

In addition to affecting the production of hormones – especially cortisol – stress causes poor vascularization of the hair bulb, which leads to a lack of essential elements for the regeneration of lashes and even hair. The structure and growth of the lashes are then weakened, making them thinner and more vulnerable to external aggressors such as dust and UV rays.

Hormonal changes

Hormonal changes during pregnancy or perimenopause have an important influence on eyelashes and hair, since they modify the metabolic structure of the cells. In addition, some hormonal disorders can cause lash loss while producing cold intolerance and dryness of the skin – such as hypothyroidism. Eyelashes and eyebrows become thinner and more brittle.

Certain conditions

Some conditions can lead to hypotrichosis – a stop in the growth of eyelashes, to madarosis – an absence or loss of eyelashes, or to alopecia – a partial or total loss of lashes and/or hair. In addition, some treatments such as chemotherapy can also cause lash and hair loss.
