Why are my eyelashes thinning?

Wishing you were zapped by the luscious eyelash fairy? We do too. While some women are lucky enough to be well-endowed from birth with long, voluminous eyelashes, the rest of us have to make up the difference with mascara, harmful lash extensions, and chemical lash treatments.

These are the methods we are told will solve our thinning eyelashes, but the truth is we need to go to the root of the issue in order to solve the problem!

Whether you’ve had short, stubby eyelashes your whole life or your lashes have started to thin, shorten, or fall out over time, there are a number of reasons why you may be lacking in the lash department.

In this week’s lash blog, we’ll explore some of the most common causes of thinning lashes as well as what we can do to treat and prevent it.

  1. As we grow older, there seems to be an ever-growing list of things that start to fade - from eyesight and hearing to loss of muscle mass. Unfortunately, thinning hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes are a natural part of aging, which is caused by menopause and other hormonal imbalances. Although the aging process is natural and beautiful, these side effects cannot be prevented. Luckily, changes in diet and medical prescriptions exist that enhance hair growth and replenish hair loss due to hormonal imbalances.
  2. Allergic reaction. Chemical compounds found in mascara and other makeup strips away at the natural lash line. Some people may also experience an allergic reaction to the chemicals in makeup, which could be the source of their thinning, balding or lash loss. If you notice redness or swelling around your eye area after using a product, you are likely having an allergic reaction. If this is the case, switch to an all-natural alternative or opt for an over the counter, hypoallergenic mascara or makeup brand.
  3. Medical condition. In special cases, eyelash thinning could be the result of a more serious problem that may require medical attention. If you’re experiencing sudden hair loss, it could be an indication of a pink eye infection, vitamin deficiency, or medical condition like hyperthyroidism. If your eyelashes are spontaneously falling out or thinning, it may be time to visit your doctor for an expert opinion to determine if your eyelash thinning should be treated.
  4. Improper eye care. Much like the hair on your head or eyebrows, it’s important to take proper care of your natural eyelashes. Eyelashes are delicate and can easily fall out from scrubbing, rubbing your eyes too hard, or sleeping with mascara. Try softening any makeup you use with an oil-based cleanser first in order to dissolve the makeup and gently swipe it away. Additionally, using an all-natural lash serum is the best way to care for your lashes.


As you can see, there are a number of different factors that may lead to having short or thinning eyelashes. By understanding the different causes and by implementing the tips we spoke about today, you’ll be well on your way to having healthier, full, luscious lashes that you’re proud to flaunt.
