THINNING EYELASHES DESCRIPTION
Many problems can lead to a thinning or even the total loss of the eyelashes. Among these are allergies, especially contact allergies to eye makeup; the use of certain drugs; exposure to environmental toxins; hypothyroidism; eye surgery; a poor diet and/or nutritional deficiencies; and trauma. Eyelash loss may part of a condition called alopecia areata. There are other possible causes too, ranging from hormone problems (rare) to pulling the hairs out as a nervous habit.
A person with eyelash loss should be evaluated by your health care provider and possibly a dermatologist to determine the cause. If you have alopecia, waiting it out is usually recommended, as regrowth is expected. Topical remedies usually do not work, and corticosteriods (prednisone) has too many side-effects for its short-lived benefit.
CAUSES OF THINNING EYELASHES
Often, thinning eyelashes are caused by natural factors like aging which weakens hair follicles and makes them brittle. Therefore they lose their strength and are easily broken.
Thinning eyelashes can occur as a result of poor diet and maintenance of eyes and the nearby areas. Nutritional deficiencies can also be another cause for thinning eyelashes.
The thickness and length of your eyelashes is also determined by heredity.
Hormonal disturbances and stress can affect growth of your eyelashes.
External factors such as hypothyroidism, eye surgery, continuous exposure to chemicals and toxins, can also have detrimental effect on your eyelashes.
Eye lashes, eye brows and hair is often lost with chemotherapy during cancer treatments. Once treatments are completed, lost hair, including eye brows and lashes, should grow back.
Another common cause of thinning eyelashes is prolonged usage of eye makeup, which may lead to certain types of allergies.
Even an involuntary habit of pulling the hairs of your eyelashes can deplete their length and thickness.
DEEPER CAUSE OF THINNING EYELASHES
Thinning eyelashes can be the beginning symptoms of a condition called alopecia areata. It is always advisable to consult an eye care or health care provider and seek remedies for this condition.

APPLYING FALSE EYELASHES
Today's false eyelashes are more natural looking when you learn how to apply false eyelashes following simple steps. There are dozens and dozens of brands to choose from, and several types of lashes (full set, clumps, or individual lashes). This array of choices will make it easy to apply false eye lashes, and achieve the look you want to create.
Full sets are the easiest to apply, and individual lashes are the hardest since they require a very steady hand. When you are first learning how to apply false eyelashes you should practice several times, and wear them at home before venturing out into the world. You will get to understand how they feel and whether you are applying enough adhesive to last through whatever event you want to wear them to.
Whether you spent $1.99 or $199.00, whether you buy human hair or mink, learning how to apply false eyelashes can make all the difference.
1. The first step and maybe the most important one when applying false eyelashes is to start with clean eye lids. The adhesive (glue ) will not stick to oil so be sure to use an oil-free eye makeup remover. Be sure not to use any oil-based makeup near your eyes.
2. The next step in applying false eyelashes is to choose a color and a length. For a natural look, stick with a color that matches your own shade of lashes. Blondes and light color haired gals can go with a light brown color, but all other gals should use dark brown or black. For a glamorous evening look everyone can go with black. Most false eyelashes will need to be trimmed, as the lashes are too long for most women. Be sure to trim just a little at a time. Then test run them by holding them on your eyelid and seeing how well they fit across your lid. You will probably have to trim the length as well. Be sure to curve them across your lid. Take off one or two lashes at a time to get just the right fit. Be sure they do not extend past your eyelid as this will be very uncomfortable. Do all your trimming before applying the adhesive. Sharp scissors will do the trick.
3. Third step in applying false eyelashes is to add adhesive to the false eyelashes. Try applying them with a dark lash glue. The dark glue helps define the lash line. Do not use too much. Putting some on paper and using a toothpick can help. Let the adhesive become tacky, (this only takes about a minute), before applying the false eyelashes to your own eyelash line. Remember to never put the false eyelash adhesive directly on your own eyelid. The adhesive is meant only to be applied to the false eyelash itself. You certainly do not want glue in your eye, and your certainly don't want to glue your eye shut either!
4. While looking in the mirror, start applying your false eyelashes at the inside corner, press and hold the false eyelashes as close to your own lash line as possible If you feel your fingers are too big for this step you can use tweezers. Be very careful not to poke yourself in the eye.
5. If you are using individual lashes or clumps, start at the outside and work toward the inner eye. You will only need a couple of individual lashes or clumps to achieve a natural look.
6. After apply the false eyelashes and letting them dry, take an eyelash curler and gently curl your new false eyelashes along with you own lashes.
7. To unify the look of your new lashes apply liquid eyeliner over both. No mascara needed.
8. When you want to remove the false eyelashes, be gentle. Because your eye lids are so sensitive do not pull your false eyelashes off without the use of eye makeup remover. Let the remover soak in for a couple of minutes. The oil will loosen the strip.
9. To use your false eyelashes again, clean them according to the manufacturer's directions. Be sure to pull off any remaining glue. Let them dry completely before putting them away.
Wearing false eyelashes only on special occasions will keep your eyes from developing an infection or an irritation from the adhesive. Remember, practice makes perfect. Learning how to apply false eyelashes and correctly applying them can lift your spirits and make you feel beautiful.
Eyelash Curlers are mechanical devices that bend the eyelashes, causing your eyes to appear larger and lashes longer. Use an eyelash curler before you apply mascara. There are several different eyelash curlers on the market. One of the best is the Tweezerman Super Curl Eyelash Curler with a no-stick rubber pad you can warm with a blow dryer for a longer lasting curl. To use, press lashes gently with the curler. For a natural look, repeat three times, each time moving away from the lash line.
The most common and preferred treatment for thinning eyelashes is a continued application of mascara. You need to take care of a few points while applying mascara. The focus should always be on the base of your eyelashes. You should apply it evenly, without putting too much on the tips of the eyelashes. Mascara is highly sought after by older women to add more sparkle to their eyes. The contour of the eyes gets a facelift by a proper application of mascara. Consider using a mascara that is hypoallergenic.
Some women are troubled by running or smudging caused by excessive water content in mascara. To avoid this, some companies add chemical solvents to absorb excess water. But, you need to be wary while using such a product as it will make your eyelashes dry and weak, thus increasing the risk of thinning it further. If you are already worried about thinning eyelashes, then choosing the right mascara and deciding the appropriate duration of application can be a quite an undertaking task for you! Always keep in mind the drawbacks of using mascara.
Additionally, making sure that your eyes, themselves, look good as this will draw attention away from your thinning lashes. When your eyes look good people are drawn to them and will not even notice that your lashes may be thin.

Once you perfect the look of your lashes you may want to minimize dark circles under your eyes as well. Even the most attractive eyes and lashes can be marginalized by the distraction of dark circles under them. Dark circles under the eyes tend to increase with aging because of issues with the skin and capillaries under the eyes. Additional factors could be more stress and less sleep. It is always a good idea to have a health care provider look at chronic problems with thinning lashes and dark circles under the eyes first. However, these problems are not usually a cause for alarm. There are promising new treatments available to diminish these dark patches under your eyes.
COSMETIC SURGERY - PERMANENT EYELASHES - EYELASH TRANSPLANT SURGERY
For thick, lush eyelashes, women have traditionally turned to mascara, false lashes, even extensions. But these options may not be helpful if eyelashes are thinning, or completely gone. Absent or underdeveloped eyelashes are now being restored using advanced hair transplantation techniques. Eyelash transplants were originally developed for patients who suffered burns or congenital malformations of the eye. However, an increasing number of patients are requesting the procedure for cosmetic purposes.
Eyelash transplantation is a delicate, microsurgical procedure, done under local anesthesia and light sedation. The surgeon removes 50 to 100 hair follicles from the back of the patient's scalp and then places them one by one into the patient's eyelids. Once safely transplanted and established, the transplanted lashes continue to grow and eventually require some maintenance. Just like head hair, they need to be trimmed regularly and sometimes curled.
Costs are typically $6,000 to $7,000 or approximately $3,000 per eye (or more). Recovery time is about a week to ten days with the lashes starting to grow at about 3 to 6 months.
People of all ages are turning to this new procedure. Young women who have been wearing popular eyelash extensions are finding they can traumatize the hair follicle and cause permanent eyelash thinning. It is also common to experience eyelash thinning with age so as people get older, more are seeking out this new cosmetic restoration.
