Beautiful, long eyelashes are a part of having gorgeous, memorable eyes. Do you wish your eyelashes were longer and fuller? There are a few ways you can get more beautiful eyelashes, by changing your diet and your makeup routine, and by calling Plastic and Dermatologic Surgery in Calgary for Latisse treatment.
It is normal to lose a few eyelashes a day – it is part of the normal cycle. However, there are some things you may be doing to contribute to a loss of eyelashes. For instance, you may be pulling out eyelashes when you use your eyelash curler or if you aren’t taking your eye makeup off as gently as you should. Leaving mascara on overnight can also make eyelashes brittle and more prone to breaking if your face rubs against the pillow as you sleep. An allergy to your mascara can also cause eyelashes to fall out. And, your real eyelashes can be pulled out if you wear extensions or false eyelashes and don’t remove them carefully.
Some medical conditions can cause an excessive amount of eyelash loss, such as an eyelid inflammation, scleroderma, or hyper- or hypothyroidism. People undergoing chemotherapy may also find they are losing an excessive amount of eyelashes.
To keep eyelashes healthy and strong, you can eat foods that help hair grow. Foods with iron, niacin, and vitamins A and C can help. These foods include fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Protein and biotin are good for hair and eyelash growth. You can find biotin in kale, whole grains, broccoli, and cauliflower. Biotin is also available as a supplement.
However, if you are serious about healthy, beautiful lashes, Latisse may be the answer for you. Latisse keeps the eyelashes from falling out, so they keep growing. Within 4 months of starting Latisse, users can see fuller, longer lashes. This serum is approved by the FDA and is easily applied each night.
