My eyelashes are not growing and aren't as long as they used to be, is that what happens when you age?

Hi Carrie

Thank you for this question! 

Yes, unfortunately loss of eyelash hair is common as we get older. This is likely the reason for you. 

Talk to a dermatologist about what may work for you. There is a product called Latisse that has seen good results but has serious side effects including changing your eye color. 

You can also consider eyelash extensions, an eyelash curler and a good mascara. 

Here is an EmpowHER share with tips on how to lengthen your lashes! Let us know if you find something that works!
