    Well, yes, our eyelashes will get shorter as we age. And before now, people merely paid attention to the eyelashes with old age. But on the other hand, according to some experts, as we age the thickness and length of our eyelashes tends to diminish. And we can say that it can just result in thinning, brittle and short eyelashes, for it no longer gives us the ability to grow longer eyelashes naturally to create that beautiful dense framework for our eyes we have had in the past. So that can be kind of terrible for many people. Generally speaking, in daily life, there are some common ways which we can just have a try to protect our eyelashes. For example, green tea helps in growing your eyelashes fuller and thicker. And at the same time, lip balm can be used too. Anyway, just have a try.

    Actually the eyelashes will not get shorter with age. If you find that the eyelashes get shorter, you may know that it is the symptom of eyelashes falling down. It is the natural symptom. However, you may not grow eyelashes quickly with age after they fall off. However, you could apply the vitamin E on the eyelashes part which will stimulate the growing of the eyelashes. It is really useful which is applied among a lot of people. You could have a try. You could also use the eyeliners or eyes shadow to make up the eyes to make them look beautiful and gorgeous. The above ways could be tried.

    Well, I think you are quite willing to learn new things, good news anyway. So, from what I know, it is true that the length of our eyelashes change according to different ages and health conditions. Generally speaking, they would grow longer during our infancy, and while we are in our declining years, they would shrink due to the effect of decreased metabolism, and sometimes some diseases would lead them to be shortened. Just pay attention to your eye health.

    Yeah, the eyelash will get thinner and shorter as you age. As you age and your hair follicles age as well, you may notice a thinning of your lashes. Even if you boasted a thick fringe in your younger years, as your natural hair begins to thin and the hair follicles essentially die as you age, your eyelashes may follow suit. Typically the thinning associated with age is minor, and can be disguised with false lashes and cosmetic. Eyelash growth has four stages: growth, resting, shedding and re-growth. Your lashes continuously cycle through these four stages. As we age, eyelash follicles (the openings in the skin through which the lash grows) can slow or stop producing new lashes altogether. Talk with your health care provider about your concerns; he or she can help get to the root of the problem.
