The RevitaLash Cosmetics Ultimate Lash Quiz

The RevitaLash Cosmetics Ultimate Lash Quiz

How much do you know about eyelashes? You just might be surprised at what you learn! 

How many lashes do you lose each day?

A. None
B. 1-5
C. 6-10
D. Over 10

Answer: B

Natural eyelashes grow in and fall out in cycles, which occur every 60 to 90 days. Depending on their individual lash growth cycles, a person can typically shed between one and five natural lashes every day, and as many as 20% of your lashes every two weeks. 

 

How many eyelashes (on average) do you have on the upper lid?

A. 50-90
B. 90-150
C. 150-190
D. 190-250

    Answer: B

    On average, we have 90 to 150 eyelashes on the upper lid (and 70 to 80 eyelashes on the bottom lash line). Everyone is different, of course. Some people have as few as 50 lashes; others have 200-plus on their upper lid. 

     

    Do lashes ever stop growing?

    • Yes
    • No

    Answer: Yes

    As we age, eyelash follicles can slow or even stop producing new lashes. The 'aging' process can be exacerbated by scrubbing eyelashes too hard, causing them to fall out.

     

    Do lash extensions harm your natural lashes?

    • Yes
    • Maybe, but only if applied improperly
    • No 

    Answer: Maybe

    When applied correctly and without aggressive chemical, lash extensions can be an attractive choice in the short term

    BUT… when applied incorrectly damage can occur, ranging from allergic reactions to the chemicals, infection, swelling, and lash loss – in extreme cases.

    An article published in Consumer Reports notes several cases of women who experienced infections and allergic reactions to the formaldehyde-based adhesives. (See https://www.consumerreports.org/cro/2013/05/eyelash-extensions-can-pose-health-risks/index.htm.)

    Of course, you want to have extensions applied by an eyelash technician, preferably one with an esthetician or cosmetologist license, plus specific training in eyelash application. 

    If you already have extensions, it's important to keep your lashes clean, as the adhesives can trap dirt and germs that can lead to complications.

    You should consider a gentle but thorough lash cleanser to minimize the potential problem, like Micellar Water Lash Wash. What's Micellar Water? Micelles are molecules that attract and draw out dirt and impurities. Micellar water is excellent at removing oil, makeup, lint. This is an essential tool for anyone with extensions… or anyone who wants squeaky clean, hydrated lashes.
