  1. Eyelashes may fall off. They are like all normal hairs that grow on your body, and like all hairs, they may also fall out. Falling out is a phase in the growth cycle of eyelashes. However, your eyelashes may fall off at a quicker pace due to some other reasons.

    • Are you rubbing your eyes too much?

    Rubbing the eyes can cause you eyelashes to break and fall off. If you are rubbing your eyes too much because of allergies or out of habit, then you must break the habit. There are growth phases when the hairs are particularly vulnerable. If they break off during this phase they may take a long time to grow back.

    • Are you removing your eye makeup daily?

    When removing eye makeup, you may end up rubbing your eyes too hard. Make sure that when you remove your makeup, you rub your eyes very gently.

    • Do you repeatedly use an eyelash curler?

    Eyelash curler can potentially pull out your eyelashes. If you are repeatedly using an eyelash curler, after heating it or after applying mascara, it can cause your eyelashes to fall out at a faster rate. Use eyelash curler only occasionally.

    Medical Reasons

    You may have a medical reason due to which your eyelashes are falling out. Some of these reasons are explained below:

    Eyelid infections. You may be suffering from eyelid infections which can cause your eyelids to swell and fall out.

    Thyroid condition. A hyperactive thyroid gland can cause your eyelashes to fall out. If this condition is detected at an early stage, it can be treated and cured.

    Mite Infection. This infection will cause your eyelashes to swell and inflame. As a result, you will lose eyelash volume.

    Blepharitis. This is an eyelid condition. It is an inflammation condition and may be brought on by allergies or trauma.

    Alopecia Areata. This is a medical condition in which the immune system breaks down. It starts to attack your hair follicles on the eyelids, scalp and other parts of the body.

    Allergies to mascara. Mascara contains many chemicals that can potentially cause allergies. If you feel that your eyes become watery, swollen or itchy when you use mascara then that means you have allergies to some chemical in mascara.

    How to Make Your Eyelashes Grow Faster and Healthier

    If your eyelashes have grown weak or brittle then you can use a few methods to make your eyelashes thicker and grow faster. You will find that these solutions to your eyelash problems are quick and simple.

    Eyelash Conditioner

    Eyelash growth products are available in the market. They help your eyelashes to grow faster and stronger by stimulating the hair follicles in your eyelids. They provide the essential nutrients, proteins and conditioners to the hair follicles. Some of these products help to moisturize your eyelashes as well. Select a product that contains only natural ingredients. An all-natural product has lesser chances of allergic reactions and does not irritate your eyes. Some of the products that you can safely use are:

    Ø  Revitalash

    Ø  Latisse

    Ø  Lilash

    • Proper Nutrition

    This is probably the cheapest treatment available. Your follicles need vitamins, minerals, proteins and other essential nutrients for healthy growth of the hairs. You can naturally grow healthy and long eyelashes by improving your diet. A proper diet will help your hair, nails and eyelashes grow faster. It is also good for your general health. Eat foods that are rich in vitamin B5 and proteins, such as oatmeal, chia seeds and avocado yoghurt.

    • Vitamins and Petroleum Jelly

    Use a brush applicator to apply vitamin E oil to your eyelashes. Petroleum jelly is another good option. You can apply it to your eyelashes before going to bed. Petroleum jelly moisturizes your eyelashes and protects them while they grow out. This process takes a long time to show results but it is a natural way to treat your problems.

    • Homemade Tips for Growing Eyelashes 

    You can apply olive oil or castor oil to your eyelashes. These oils contain the necessary nutrients that stimulate growth of eyelashes naturally.

    Mix Vaseline, olive oil and aloe Vera gel. Apply the mixture to your eyelashes at night.

    Glycerin is a good option too. You can apply it to your eyelids.

    Apply less makeup to your eyes. Makeup, especially mascara, causes eyelashes to become weak and brittle. If you want to protect your eyelashes, as well as your eyes, then avoid using eye makeup as much as possible.


    Like all hairs on the body, eyelashes may also fall out. This falling out process may be natural or due to some mechanical or medical reason. Either way, eyelashes will grow back, like all normal hairs. So if you have scarce eyelashes, don’t worry too much. Use the tips described in this article and solve the problem.
