Your Go-To Guide In Dealing With The Lash Shedding Season

On average, a regular human being sheds five lashes each day, making it about 35 lashes a week. It might surprise you to know that shedding is pretty standard. These lashes are not lost forever; you lose more than usual during the Lash shedding season, but the new ones are ready to grow back in no time. Tree leaves aren't the only thing that falls during the Autumn season; our body hair, including eyelashes, sheds during Spring also as our bodies react to the changes in temperatures during these seasons.

When and What to Expect from Eyelash Shedding Season:

During the Autumn and Winter seasons, temperatures start dropping, and the weather gets harsher by the day. Winds get colder, our bodies start drying, and the temperature changes start rapidly from cold weather outside to the warmer temperatures in our homes and offices. This regular quick change in temperature leaves our skin dry, which helps in the rapid eyelash shedding cycle. We notice more lash shedding during these seasons as the drop increases.

Unhealthy habits and excessive makeup application can also be a reason for the lash loss. Extreme eyelash shedding may also be caused by inflammation, any allergy to your eyes, or trauma. No matter the reason behind the lash fall, it brings a lot of confidence if you understand the growth cycles, especially during your lash shedding season.

The growth cycles of your lashes are typically divided into 3 phases called Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. Anagen and Catagen are the start and end phase of the 4-6 week cycle of your eyelash growth. If your lashes fall during the Anagen phase, they won’t grow until the 5th week or so during the Catagen phase. Talogen is the most extended phase where new lashes have time to grow and sprout.

Taking Care during Eyelash Shedding Season:

  • As there is nothing else we can do about eyelash shedding cycles during particular weathers, aftercare is crucial for our lashes' healthy longevity.
  • Apply nourishing serum daily.
  • Keep close to regular cleansing and make it a habit. Don't go long intervals without it, and keep it gentle.
  • If the eyelash shedding is because of an underlying medical cause, your doctor can help you to treat it better.
  • A healthy diet is necessary, Protein, Biotin, Fruits, Vegetables containing Vitamin A & C and finally Niacin, etc.
  • A healthy regular dose of Vitamin is always good and will do the trick.
