Weak and sparse eyelashes and brows
Having long lashes and well-drawn brows is the dream of many. In fact, eyelashes and eyebrows have an important influence on it gaze, making it more intense and expressive. Unfortunately, however, not everyone is lucky enough to have curved eyelashes and marked eyebrows, indeed. In many cases, the lashes are short or straight and the eyebrows sparse. What are the causes? Certainly genetics is crucial: if it is written in our DNA that eyelashes and eyebrows must be produced in a certain way, the body will follow that instruction. However, there are several factors that can make the situation worse.
Nutrition, for example, but also stress, the use of poor cosmetics or the habit of frequently rubbing the eyes or continually touching eyelashes and eyebrows, a nervous tic to avoid because it breaks or tears the hair (which can then be used up to a month and a half to grow back). Also, using some eye drops can dehydrate and dry out your eyelashes. Consequently, a balanced diet, the choice of quality cosmetics, good stress management and the abandonment of bad behavior can definitely help our lashes and brows. There are also some products natural able to lend a hand and help to have longer and stronger lashes without having to resort to lamination or extensions or to keep them healthy and strong.
What to do
To have top lashes and brows the first rule is to take care of one’s diet: if the body does not receive the right quantities of carbohydrates, proteins, fats and water, it will obviously be difficult for him to make everything work perfectly and this also affects the physical appearance. A balanced diet is therefore the first step to have strong eyelashes and eyebrows. There are also natural supplements recommended to grow eyelashes and eyebrows: this is the case, for example, of millet extracts, biotin and in general vitamin and mineral supplements. However, if the diet is adequate, it is almost never necessary to resort to supplementation.
On an equal footing with nutrition we find movement, because physical activity oxygenates the tissues making them more efficient and beautiful. A strategy to get oxygen and nutrients to the eyebrow area is to comb them. On the market there are small combs on purpose: comb the eyebrows it stimulates blood circulation and it is thanks to the blood that the hair bulbs are supplied with what they need.
Then pay attention to the choice of cosmetics and make-up products, always preferring quality ones, and hygiene. Removing eye make-up and washing brushes and applicators carefully avoids the risk of irritation and infections that could lead to weakening eyelashes and eyebrows.
