You are definitely not imagining things! That’s right, your once full lashes are thinning!
As we age, there is a decrease in follicle stimulation due to hormonal imbalances which slows the growth of new hairs, including your lashes. Not to mention, certain illnesses like thyroid issues, eye infections, eye rubbing, false lashes, harsh makeup, and nutritional deficiencies can all also contribute to barely-there lashes.
We scoured makeup counters near and far to find the best mascaras that will get you to bat those lashes like you did back-in-the-day! We found mascaras that lengthen, volumize, moisturize, and even condition weak and brittle lashes.
