Why do women over 40 lose more and more eyelashes, with only stubs remaining?
The Lies of the beauty industry.
Most of us assume that losing eyelashes, or having stubby eyelashes that never seem to grow, is a natural result of aging.
I got curious about this topic years ago and started doing research. I talked to specialists, scientists and chemists at the major beauty companies. What I am about to tell you will shake you to the core. If you do not care about your health, your eyesight and your children, please stop reading now, for all others, hold on what I learned was shocking.
Retinal detachment after years of mascara
How long have you been wearing mascara?
Has it been 10, 20, 30 or even more years?
Have you never asked yourself which ingredients are included?
Have you ever wondered why so many women see worse than men, or why more women than men tend to need reading glasses are becoming a must, especially as they get older?
Turns out, it’s not because we’re the “weaker sex” or any of those old myths. More likely, the culprit is the mascara – especially waterproof mascara — that you’ve been using all these years.
Yes, that’s right. Your mascara could well be what’s destroying your once-lovely lashes.
It’s now proven: extended use of mascara causes lash loss.
Most people apply mascara to thicken the lashes and make them appear fuller. However, using it for an extended period may actually result in eyelashes falling out.
Multiple studies have shown that the vapors released by mascara can infiltrate and ruin our eyes over the years. Furthermore, they’ve confirmed that the vapors gradually destabilize our eyelashes. As a result, more and more of our eyelashes break off, gaps are created and our own eyelashes are effectively killed. As with any toxic chemical, the longer you’re exposed to it, the more damage it does.
Waterproof mascara is a special offender. It has drying agents which cause your lashes to stiffen and drop out, or even scratch your corneas, especially if it’s not fully removed at night. And other toxic gases frequently found in mascara can cause allergic reactions that affect your eye health and vision.
You may think that’s impossible and that this would never be approved! Well, you’d be wrong. As you know, the cosmetics industry in the U.S. is loosely regulated so it’s relatively easy for the makers to add potentially toxic ingredients to their products. “So what if that makes women’s lashes fall out over time? That’s good — we’ll sell more mascara!”
It is a vicious circle that brings billions to these big companies. At first I couldn’t believe what I’d learned. I thought to myself: “Have I really been led around by my nose all my life by these cosmetic companies?” I realized the answer was YES.
These false promises have been drummed into us for decades by these big corporations, and handed down from generation to generation.
