You’re on autopilot applying mascara in front of the mirror as you always do each morning (it’s such a part of your routine that you can almost do it with your eyes closed)..... when you can’t help but blink rapidly in confusion.
What is that alarming gap in your lash line you see this morning? Are you losing your eyelashes or are you losing your mind?
Do a double take all you want but that bald spot you see in your lash line will still be there.
We hate to break it to you, but if you’re a woman over 50, the gaps you’re seeing could have something to do with age. Bald spots can be caused by a variety of factors with age being one of them, but hormonal changes in the body also play a part, as well as certain medical conditions.
If you suspect that your eyelash gaps are caused by an underlying medical condition or hormonal imbalances, then we advise talking to a health care provider (such as a dermatologist) to root out the issue and figure out the best course of treatment for you.
That being said, there are few things you can do to grow fuller, healthier-looking lashes and fill in the gaps.
