The daily role of eyelashes.
With an average lifespan of 3 months, eyelashes serve several functions. Positioned on the edge of the eyelids, these hairs act as a type of barrier, repelling any foreign bodies that might attempt to make their way towards the eye. They also limit the trickle of sweat droplets caused by perspiration and significantly reduce the effect of light rays on the iris, much like a blind. But that's not all. As powerful tools of seduction, eyelashes have an impact on the overall harmony of the face. The stronger, fuller and thicker they are, the more captivating the gaze is considered to be. Cosmetics professionals are now competing in the makeup market to produce various products designed to enhance the appearance of eyelashes, such as serums and mascaras.
Why should we take care of our eyelashes?
Eyelashes are often the overlooked element in beauty routines. However, well-maintained lashes can be an excellent alternative to mascara and other types of eye makeup. Being extremely delicate, they are only implanted 2 millimetres beneath the skin of the eyelid and therefore are prone to falling out easily. Certain practices can further weaken them, such as excessive exposure to the sun, rough handling with overly harsh products, poor hydration or subjecting them to frequent temperature changes. Moreover, with a length ranging from 6 to 12 millimetres, eyelashes tend to shorten and thin with age. It is therefore crucial to provide them with appropriate care to keep them healthy for as long as possible.

It is therefore important to provide lashes with nourishing care that will strengthen them. There are many natural vegetable oils that contribute to this. To ensure they remain healthy and fully perform their role, there is nothing better than using organic cosmetics to best respect the natural sensitivity of the lashes. Among these, one of the oils to prioritise for lash care is thecastor oil. This is an oil of excellence, due to its highly nourishing virtues, and is recognised for naturally stimulating lash growth. Rich in oleic acid and fatty acids, it also deeply hydrates the lashes to prevent them from drying out and breaking. Also rich in proteins, vitamin E and minerals, castor oil strengthens the bulb and increases the lifespan of the hairs for longer lashes, for longer.
At Typology, we have a lash serum that is natural and organic in origin. This treatment helps to restart the lash growth process, resulting in increased length and density. In addition to castor oil, this serum also contains pea peptides with redensifying properties, as well as biotinyl-GHK and panthenol (provitamin B5), a combination of active ingredients designed to stimulate the synthesis of collagen and laminin molecules. On the technical side, gently apply the treatment to the lashes using the brush and wait a few seconds for the product to penetrate deeply for better results. For makeup enthusiasts, the treatment should be carried out in the morning before applying makeup and in the evening after the makeup removal step. Your lashes will regain volume and shine.
