Health and eyelashes: three experts from the sector speak

Our eyes are often the focus of our beauty regime. We use makeup to enhance them, creams to preserve them and mascara to give them volume. In fact, all this has an impact on us. In a survey recently conducted by Nouveau Lashes, one in three women, that is 33%, said that the eyes are the first thing they are fixed on the other person, while more than one fifth (21%) They said that their eyes are their most attractive feature.

They are so important, then, that we should not leave their health aside when we use false eyelashes or do some treatment. Three experts from the sector (an optometrist, a dermatologist and a trichologist) tell us how to do it and what we should avoid.

Beauty regimens, our constantly busy lifestyle and other causes such as aging, cause stress on the skin around the eyes and eyelashes, leading to dry irritated skin and the loss of eyelashes, a reminder that They are not simply aesthetically pleasing, but they also have a practical purpose: "The eyelashes are there to protect the eye. They trap dirt that could fall on him and cause him some injury "- comments the optometrist Francesca Marchetti. The good news is that with proper care, we can have bright, healthy eyes without resorting to drastic measures.

Hydration and stress control

Just as you clean and moisturize your hair with shampoo and conditioner, you need to clean and moisturize the lashes. The dermatologist Justine Hextall advises us that " to stop the break, it is important to moisturize and condition the eyelashes. The chosen products should contain hyaluronic acid and glycerin, which hydrate the skin and eyelashes attracting and retaining water. Biotin and keratin are also important, strengthen the lashes and play a role in thicker hair growth. In addition, vitamins B5 and B6 promote healthy hair because your body uses these nutrients to nourish your hair follicles. "

Likewise, relaxing after a difficult day and alleviating anxiety is essential for capillary health. If stress is not managed, it manifests itself physically, for example in the form of alopecia areata, which is not exempt from affecting also the eyelashes. Losing between 50 and 100 hairs every day without even realizing it is normal, while alopecia causes loss in small patches. Another condition that causes stress is the so-called trichotillomania, which occurs when anxiety is so powerful that patients feel an uncontrollable need to tear their hair for relief. Fortunately, this hair loss is rarely permanent. When stress is under control, it can grow back, which is why it is so important to take care of yourself and learn how to eliminate stress and make sure you get enough rest.

Treatments on the rise

This type of treatments (eyelashes) occupy the fourth place among the most popular in the field of beauty, behind the capillaries, manicures and pedicures: " More women are setting aside their mascara in favor of extensions , dyes and elevations to give a more lasting to your eyes "- emphasizes Hextall, emphasizing the health benefits that some have:" If you eliminate the need to wear a mask every day, daily cleaning routines are also reduced . This means less manipulation of the eye area, which reduces the risk of irritation and damage. "

The expert trichologist Trisha Buller emphasizes that we must always put ourselves in the hands of professionals of the sector: "The extensions and the additional weight in the eyelashes can sometimes have an adverse effect on the growth and the condition of the eyelashes, so we must make sure in whose hands we put on, someone who knows the real care of the eyelashes and always do a patch test before a lifting and eyelash tinting, since an allergy can be disastrous for its loss ".

Remove makeup before going to bed

Why should we take off makeup before going to sleep? "If the makeup is left behind it can clog and irritate the root, in addition to causing infection and inflammation in the roots of the hair, leading to the fall of the eyelashes. Irritated skin in this area becomes itchy, which makes us rub the eye and further worsen the fall of the eyelashes "- clarifies Justine Hextall. In fact, because it is a particularly sensitive area, the skin can be so easily irritated that it causes dry skin conditions, such as eczema and dermatitis, causing permanent damage to the eyelashes: "To combat any ocular complication, you have to use a soft, moisturizing, fragrance-free cleanser to remove makeup.
