Are you losing your eyebrows and eyelashes?

How can you treat hair loss in the eyebrows and eyelashes?

Eyebrows and losing weight is a common problem. We have all had times when we looked in the mirror and noticed some bald spots in one or both of these areas. As you know, full, well-defined eyebrows are a fad today and the look gets a special look.

But what do you do if those of you already thin out? The loss of hair of the eyebrows and eyelashes can have several causes that we will discuss below, but do not worry, since it is almost always temporary and with proper treatment you can restore them. Be careful what you should do.

Losing your eyelashes or eyebrows are always temporary. It is important to always find out what causes this first, in order to determine the most suitable treatment. Let’s take a look at the factors that could cause this problem:


Your metabolism changes, the cortisol levels in your body fluctuate and this affects a lot of your body functions. So it is normal to experience that annoying hair loss in your eyebrows and eyelashes.

Eczema or topical dermatitis

In the case of eczema it is a more serious problem and the help of a dermatologist is required for this. Eczema is a common disease usually occurs due to chronic redness, itching and discomfort.

It often also affects the area around the eyelids, resulting in a loss of hair of the eyebrows and eyelashes. Follow the advice of your doctor. Eczema should be treated with appropriate medication, which should stop the annoying problem of hair loss.

Be careful with her removal

Of course we are talking about epilation or depilation of your eyebrows. When you take a hair at the root, it can sometimes take longer than usual before it grows again and it can take up to two weeks before you see it again.

So be careful with epilating to ensure that you do not remove too many hairs. You should also remember that hairs can grow a ‘finite’ number of times before they completely disappear, so if you take your eyebrows too much, it may even be that you lose them permanently.

Certain medications

For example, certain medications for arthritis can cause hair loss in the eyebrows and eyelashes. If you have questions about side effects of medicines that you are prescribed or already take, contact your doctor. It is worth the extra time.

Changes in your metabolism

As you get older, your metabolism will slow down and that makes it easy to suffer from small imbalances that lead to hair loss. The hair follicles are less stimulated, which means that your hair growth is slower. Eyelashes, for example, fall out faster than they can be replaced.

Treatment for eyebrows

Increase your daily intake of folic acid, minerals such as sulfur and vitamins A , B3 and E. In which foods can you find them? Take a look at the following:

  • Brewer’s yeast
  • Eggs
  • Turkey
  • Carrots
  • Broccoli
  • Onions
  • Peaches
  • Bell pepper

Rosemary and castor oil: Both can be used and are easy to find, both in supermarkets and in health food stores. All you have to do is wet a cotton pad with the oil and massage it into your eyebrows every morning and evening.
