Give Thinning Eyelashes a Boost With Cosmetics and Treatments

Many women experience a lack of eyelashes that goes beyond simply needing a coat of mascara. Alopecia, a medical condition that involves loss of hair from the head, body or both, sometimes causes women to lose their eyelashes. When their appearance changes, it can affect their self-esteem and quality of life.Luckily, there are a few solutions to give you the appearance of full lashes or actually give you the lush fringe you've always wanted.

You've may have considered applying false eyelashes, but possibly were turned off by the artificial appearance. However, you can purchase small segments of lashes that look just like the real deal. Adhering just a few lashes on the outermost corner of your eye can give you a doe-eyed look, and no one will be the wiser about your embellishments.

If you still have some eyelashes, there are non-pharmaceutical lash-boosting serums packed with vitamins and moisturizers to enhance fringe.

You may have also heard about a new a prescription treatment that stimulates eyelash growth. While the fluid has been shown to be effective, there are potential side effects. Talk to your health care provider before trying this option.
