Handle with care
While removing your makeup, be extremely gentle around the lashes. Instead of rubbing your eyes with the makeup remover, dab and swipe in a gentle motion to wipe the makeup off. Vigorous rubbing of the eye is the prime cause of eyelashes falling out.
Never sleep with eye makeup on
Dozing off with eye makeup can harm your eyes in more may that you think. Apart from causing dark circles, acne and other skin issues, it can also make your eyelash hair weak and brittle.
Use good eye makeup products
When it comes to beauty products, you should never risk it. Always use mascara from a trusted brand and use it while it is in good condition. Using expired mascara will affect the health of your lashes and make them prone to tearing and fallout.
Careful with the eyelash tools
Be very careful while using lash tools like eyelash curlers and falsies. Avoid using eyelash curler after you put on mascara as wet lashes are more likely to fall out.

Include foods rich in nutrients that promote hair growth such as omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin A, vitamin B5, iron and beta carotene. Foods like garlic, fish and green leafy vegetables have proven to stimulate lash growth.
