Your Eyelashes Can Age Too!

Believe me, I didn’t expect that that the eyelashes can age to and yes, they do. After a certain age, eventually these eyelashes starts to fall, loses its pigment, volume, and gets thin. So what are we supposed to do?

As we age, the estrogen level starts to decline, and apart from affecting your skin, hair, and the youthful glow, your lashes starts to thin, the color gets lighter, and definitely shorter, as opposed to full-bodied volume with thick color to match. Hence a good anti-aging routine that covers all aspects is extremely essential, if you don’t want to look pale and washed out eyes when you get older.

The key to stop the lashes from aging is to start early, as soon as possible, just like your usual anti-aging routine. Simply incorporating eyelash care will work wonders for them. So here’s what you should be doing.

First things first, if you do wear makeup (especially on regular basis) take off the makeup before you go to sleep. Getting a snooze with mascara still on should be considered as a sin, and they can make your lashes dry, brittle, and prone to fall out a lot easily.

And a word for the makeup stuff, if you’re using a lash curler, keep in mind to use a gentle motion when handling a lash curler and not using them in aggressive manner (the eyelashes is so near with your eyes for heaven’s sake). Apply in gentle pressure, with pulsating motion is the way to go. Tip: you can also heat the rubber attached to eyelash curler gently, to provide curling effect, more effectively.

Just like your hair and face gets pampered with a weekly mask routine, you really should consider a lash conditioner, to keep them nourish and healthy. Lash conditioners is made just like the name – it conditions, nourishes and repairs any breakage on the lashes.

Simply applying them before bed can certainly make your lashes looks so youthful and simply irresistible. Try out lash conditioners available like Jane Iredale, or perhaps use home remedies like castor oil (beneficial for lengthening the lashes) and olive oil for nourishing.

If, and only if your lashes look like it’s about to fade into nothingness, you might want to consider Latisse, as for your eyelashes’ life savers. It works by importing the quality of your current lashes, while helping to grow a new one. This FDA-approved for eyelash treatment contains Bimatoprost to enhance healthy growth of these eye fibers. Unfortunately, the do have side effects like irritation, dryness, and even skin darkening, so you might want to talk to your doctor, before getting yourself on Latisse.

Are You Allergic To Makeup?

If you’re having skin irritation, no matter how slight it is, don’t be fooled if you think it’s just your skin tying to adapt to new things (as you mom, grandma, or aunts swearing with the particular product) because there’s a possibility, that your skin is allergic to the stuff.

As noted in FDA survey, as far as a quarter of percent of general population having unwanted skin reaction to at least one beauty products, that can range to a slight irritation and rashes to a full blown allergic reactions, requiring instant treatment. And funnily enough, there are also some cases where you have no idea that your skin is actually allergic to it, until years the skin will burn like hell.

Here’s what you need to know, when it comes to skin allergies: the first and instant skin reaction that you get, as soon as you use the product is called contact dermatitis, where the poor skin might feel burn, sting, itch, and even blisters (ouch!). The other one is when the product might affect your immune system – known as allergic contact dermatitis. Your skin can get red and it happens not just to the area your skin has the product; but they can include anywhere on your body.

And it makes it hard to diagnose the symptoms correctly, because you can’t really tell apart from these two conditions.

How can you tell which is the culprit?

Usually, the word ‘fragrances’ and preservatives , commonly used in quite an amount to cover up chemical scents in the product (and to make the aesthetically pleasing) are indeed the ones to blame and somehow, it’s true as most of the cases come from these culprits, with notable preservatives used in various products are parabens, imidazolidinyl urea, and formaldehyde.

There is also a potential risks when using acid products like alpha-hydroxy acids (especially in higher concentrations, more than 10%) and even your regular sunscreen that can make your skin react adversely to it.

The key is to be aware with the products you’re using and not making a light out of any unwanted reactions that you might be having (possibly as a way that your skin is crying for help). Stop whatever you are using and fix the problem right away. OTC creams like hydrocortisone to ease up inflamed and irritated skin. A natural remedy like olive oil will also do the trick.

You can avoid recurring incidents like that by simply using another product for the same purposes. A simple rule would be to use ones that have few ingredients, as much as possible as it might reduce the chances of contact dermatitis, as well as to make your job easier to narrow down the potential culprit should you still have one.

Doing a patch test before using the products wholeheartedly will also save a lot of time (and visits to doctors). All you need is to apply a bit to the inner arms and see if your skin reacted badly to it, within 24 hours.
