National Lash Day 2023
National Lash Day is celebrated annually on February 19 to promote the importance of proper eyelash care. It is a day to notice and appreciate both true and false eyelashes for the beauty they add to our look. Lashes are known to make our eyes pop and stand out from the crowd. They also serve an even more important role in helping to protect our eyes from dirt, germs, and foreign objects and prevent the lubricating moistures in our eyes from evaporating.
Cosmetics for enhancing eyelashes have been used since 4,000 B.C., when the Ancient Egyptians started using kohl to darken their eyelids.
Modern, non-toxic mascara is thought to have started in France in 1913 before spreading to the United States a few years later with the introduction of Maybelline’s mascara, whose formula was created by the company’s creator, Thomas Williams, and was made of a blend of Vaseline and coal.
Surprisingly, 97% of the protein that makes up our eyelashes, keratin, is also present in our nails, feathers, horns, and claws.
Eyelashes are also thought to develop to a length of over three inches on average, with those closest to the center of the eyelid often being longer than those on the sides.
Moreover, eyelashes on the top of the eyelid tend to grow longer and thicker than those on the bottom; normally, the top has 200 to 300, while the bottom has just around 100.
According to a recent discovery, our eyelashes normally begin growing before birth as an embryo between weeks 22 and 26 of pregnancy.
3 FAQs on How To Care For Your Eyelashes
How many eyelashes do you gain a day?
On average, eyelashes fall out and are replenished by the body every 150 days. Depending on the person, we typically shed between one and five eyelashes a day, but for the most part, a new eyelash would have been growing to replace them.
Do eyelashes lose color?
Yes. Eyelashes typically thin out and go gray as we get older. Although they tend to go gray later than our other hair.

Pamper your eyelashes and treat them with all the best care. Have fun including a few of the ‘superfoods’ reputed to promote eyelash growth, such as mushrooms, sweet potato, eggs, and avocados on your menu.
