I've noticed lately that, because I'm wearing more mascara than usual and have to rub hard to remove my eye makeup, more of my eyelashes seem to be falling out. How do I keep them strong and healthy? Don't tell me not to wear mascara anymore, though .

Get a better eye make up remover.

I swear by Boots No 7 Cleanse and Care Eye Make Up Remover. It's hypo-allergenic and will remove even waterproof mascara without the need to rub or pull at your lashes. It is very gentle on your eye area too.

I'd never tell you NOT to wear mascara but have you considered getting one that is not as difficult to remove?

I use Max Factor 2000 calorie both the waterproof and the normal. I find they both stay on very well, are easily applied and they make my light coloured and fine eyelashes long and dark. They are also both very easy to remove with Boots.

I would definitely look at changing the brand of mascara you use. Are you using waterproof? Very hard to remove that one. Plus is you have to rub hard to remove your eye make up you are damaging the sensitive area around your eyes....which ultimately leads to more wrinkles! Just food for thought.

I use Maybelline Great Lash (non-waterproof) and it comes off easily with baby wipes. I've also noticed that my lashes have gotten a lot longer and nicer since I started using AHA and Retinol (not together) all over my entire face. It sounds absurd, but lashes and brows seem to respond to that stuff.

Thank you guys. I actually love the Mascara I use, I don't want to change that. Maybe I should change my makeup remover, I only use face wipes to remove it all and not only does it sting my eyes really bad but it removes a lot of my eyelashes! I'll look into the ones you guys mentioned. Flourchild, I don't know what AHA and Retinol is but I'll definately look into it too, thanks.

I was expecting responses that would mention remedies that work especially on eyelashes, for example olive oil? I've read that it's good for your eyelashes but I don't know how this works, do I rub it on every night or something? Anybody know of other remedies? I don't intend on changing the mascara as it works great and that's not the problem, I want something that will make my lashes stronger and something that will stimilute their growth.

I've noticed that after a week of being at my lake house without wearing make-up that my eyelashes seem a little stronger. Sometimes you just need a little break.

I swear by Extra Virgin Olive Oil to remove mascara. I started using it for that purpose when I noticed a bald spot on my left eye. It took several months, almost a year I think, but the lashes finally came back. I'll never use anything else to remove my mascara.

Oh, and for the record, EVOO also works great on diaper rash and razor burn.

Thanks! I'll try that! Does it sting the eyes, though?

Olive oil won't sting, but your vision may be blurry for a few minutes, if you get even a tiny amount in your eye. It's not harmful, just frustrating.
