As the seasons change, so too do our bodies and the way they respond to the environment around us. One of the ways in which our bodies adapt is through our hair and, in particular, our eyelashes. Many people are surprised to learn that there is such a thing as a "lash shedding season," but it is a natural process that occurs in response to the changing seasons.
Lash shedding season typically occurs in the fall, when the weather becomes cooler and the days start to get shorter. During this time, the hair follicles in our eyelids go into a resting phase, which can cause our lashes to fall out more frequently than usual. This shedding process is entirely normal and nothing to worry about, but it can be a bit alarming if you're not expecting it.
There are several factors that can contribute to lash shedding season. One is the changing weather conditions. As the air becomes drier and cooler, it can cause our skin and hair to become more brittle and prone to breakage. Another factor is the amount of sunlight we're exposed to. During the summer months, our lashes may grow longer and thicker due to the increased sunlight, but once the days start to get shorter, they may start to fall out more frequently.
There are a few things you can do to help your lashes stay healthy during lash shedding season. First, make sure to keep your eye area moisturized. Using a gentle eye cream or serum can help to keep your lashes and the surrounding skin hydrated, which can help prevent breakage. Second, be gentle when removing your eye makeup. Use a gentle, oil-based makeup remover and avoid rubbing or tugging on your lashes. Finally, try to avoid using eyelash curlers or other tools that can put extra stress on your lashes.
If you're concerned about the amount of lash shedding you're experiencing, it's always a good idea to talk to a dermatologist or other healthcare professional. They can help you determine if there's an underlying condition that may be contributing to your lash loss and can offer advice on how to keep your lashes healthy and strong.
In conclusion, lash shedding season is a natural process that occurs in response to the changing seasons. While it can be a bit alarming to see your lashes falling out more frequently, it's nothing to worry about. By taking good care of your lashes and being gentle with them, you can help keep them healthy and strong all year long.
Lots of love,
