9 Weird Things You Didn't Know About Your Eyelashes

So, we have been doing a bit of research into eyelashes and came across an interesting article on the that explores our favorite little beauty accessories on a completely different level.

Take a look at these interesting lash facts that you probably didn’t know.

Beware of number 6!

  1. They’re a mammal thing: Yes, the only animals that have eyelashes are mammals. In many species, lashes actually perform a similar function as cats’ whiskers do.

  2. They’re mostly protein: Eyelashes are 97 percent keratin and three percent water.

  3. They have a three-month lifecycle: The lifespan of a lash is about 90 days.

  4. The upper and lower lashes are different: As you can likely see by looking at your own lashes, the ones on the upper lid are much fuller, with about 200 lashes total. The lower lid, on the other hand, typically only has about 100 lashes.

  5. The sides and middle are different: For most people, lashes are longer in the middle and shorter on the sides of your eyes.

  6. They have things living in them: Don’t freak out, but tiny mites actually live in the base of your eyelashes. According to some sources, these little critters, called Demodex, actually come out when you sleep to eat the cells shed by your lashes and keep the follicles from getting clogged.

  7. They have their own glands: Speaking of clogged follicles, your lashes have two glands (the Moll and the Zeis) which help keep them bacteria-free and your lash follicles un-clogged. A stopped-up lash follicle is actually what causes a sty. (Ouch!)

  8. They fall out daily: On average, one to five of your lashes fall out each day. And, for each one lost, it takes four-to-eight weeks for a new one to come in and grow to its full length.

  9. They’re typically a little shorter than a centimeter: Most lashes grow to an average of 10 millimeters. However, the eyelash that holds the record for being a longest somehow grew to a whopping 6.4 centimeters (or just over two-and-a-half inches).

We know what you’re thinking, some of them are gross.

Fact number 9 states that the average lash length is around 10 millimeters, Love Your Lashes Eyelash Enhancing Serum gives you 25% longer, 106% thicker and 18% darker lashes in just 16 weeks, making our lashes way above average. We must admit, 6.4 centimeters is a little extreme – we cant help but think that those lashes have been measured on a Camel or a Giraffe.

The serum developed from a prescription-only medication used for many years to treat an eye condition known as glaucoma. It was noted that users of this medication all developed longer, fuller lashes.

Since then, Love your Lashes Eyelash Enhancer has been used for some time in the US and UK as a prescription-only cosmetic treatment for growing amazing lashes.

Love Your Lashes Eyelash Enhancer is applied directly to the eyelashes as a lotion. It is quick and simple to use, so easy to integrate into your current beauty regime.

Love Your Lashes Serum works by stimulating the hair follicle to produce bigger eyelashes.

Simply apply a small amount of Love Your Lashes Enhancer to the base of your upper eyelashes every night for up to 16 weeks. After four weeks your lashes will start to appear longer and fuller.

Say farewell to eyelash extensions and tinting. With Love Your Lashes your eyelashes will be longer, thicker and darker and can be maintained by applying the serum every other day.
