We all have different experiences when it comes to the growth of our eyelashes. Some people are lucky enough to have long and thick lashes, while others will struggle for months until their lashes grow. And then there are others who will never succeed in growing a set of beautiful lashes even after trying all the tricks in the book. Whatever your current situation is, if you experience pain while growing your eyelashes, you might be worried about what that means. Is it normal? Do you need some medical help? Will they ever stop hurting? Eyelashes almost universally don’t hurt unless something is wrong. This article will explain why your eyelashes hurt and what can be done about it.
Why Does My Eyelashes Hurt?
1. You’re not cleaning them enough
The eyelashes are the extensions of the eye. They help to protect it from dust and debris and also help to keep the eyes moist. If you don’t clean them regularly, they can get clogged with debris, becoming irritated and painful.
2. You’re using your mascara too often
Many women have a hard time finding time to apply their mascara because of the demanding schedule they have. But this also leads to clogged eyelashes that are prone to infection or even lash loss. Many women also use their mascara too often in one day as well, which can cause irritation and clog as well. So make sure you give your lashes a break once in a while by not applying your mascara right before bedtime, or use an oil-based product instead of a cream one.
3. Your eyelash curler is too tight
If you’re using your curler on a daily basis, it can cause damage to your lashes and make them painful to grow as well. Take out the curler every night before bed so that it doesn’t tighten up your lashes overnight.
4. Your eyelash extensions are giving you pain
If you wear false eyelashes on the regular basis, this can cause irritation and eventually lead to lash loss or infection if not removed properly at least once every 6 months or so (depending on how long you wear them). Make sure that you remove them at least once a week to avoid this.
5. Your eyelash glue is too strong
Eyelash glue is necessary for many people because it helps to keep the lashes in place, but if it’s too strong, you can experience pain and even lash loss. This can be avoided by using a lighter lash glue that will not irritate your skin.
6. You have an eye infection
Not all infections cause pain, but if you have an eye infection and the symptoms are getting worse, then you should seek medical help immediately. If you don’t want to see your doctor and want to do something about it yourself, try using a saline solution as an eyewash or take some over-the-counter anti-fungal medication such as ketoconazole or clotrimazole.
7. You’re not removing your makeup properly
Many women use their makeup remover wipes thinking that they are doing a good thing by removing their makeup. However, this can actually cause irritation of the eyelashes which leads to pain and other problems later on down the road. If you’re going out without removing any makeup at all (which isn’t recommended), try using a cotton pad with just water on it instead of liquid makeup remover wipes (which also contain oil). This will help keep your lashes fresh while still removing all traces of makeup from them after cleansing them properly with water only (I know this sounds gross, but it works!).
8. You’re wearing mascara too close to your eyes
Many women think that mascara should be applied close to their eyes in order to make their lashes look longer and thicker. However, this can cause irritation and pain due to improper application which can further lead to lash loss if it’s not removed properly. If you want to apply mascara closer than the distance of 2-3 mm from your eye, apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly on the tip of your finger and gently wipe it along the lashes before applying any other product on top of it. This will help prevent irritation while still making sure that your lashes are still clean after applying the product on top of them.
9. Your eyelash curler is dirty
If you’re using an old curler or one that has been left in a drawer for too long, you can get bacteria on it which will cause pain when you use it (even if it hasn’t been used for a while). To avoid this, clean your eyelash curler regularly with rubbing alcohol or baby shampoo so that there are no bacteria left behind after each use. If you don’t want to do this every time but only occasionally, then remember that bacteria can grow back quickly inside the curler so try not to store them in a place without light or air circulation where they won’t be exposed to sunlight or humidity (like under your sink).
10. You’re using the wrong mascara
Many women think that wearing mascara is enough to make their eyes look bright and beautiful. However, this is not the case. Mascara actually helps to draw attention to your eyes by making them more pronounced and adding depth to them. It does this by creating a false eyelash effect on your lashes which makes them look longer and thicker than they actually are (if you want to make your eyes look bigger, then you should only apply mascara on top of your natural lashes). The best way to apply mascara is by applying it along the lash line instead of just applying it on top of your natural lashes (this will help cover any gaps in between real eyelashes). If you have naturally long eyelashes (which most people do), then you should be able to apply mascara without making it look like there are fake ones on top of them because the length of a natural eyelash is significantly shorter than that of a real one. If you’re using old or dirty mascara, then consider using another one until you get a new one or buy some new ones since they can also cause irritation if they’re not clean enough.
What Is Eyelash Growth Pain?
Eyelash growth pain is usually a tingling or burning sensation in the area surrounding your eye. It’s most often described as a stinging or burning sensation on the upper or lower eyelid or around the eye socket. Occasionally, eyelash growth can also cause an itch or a bit of swelling in this area as well. If all of this sounds very familiar to you, don’t worry. It’s very normal if you experience any of it. Just keep in mind that the sensation is not caused by your eyelashes themselves, but by the process of eyelash growth.
How To Stop Your Eyelashes From Hurting?
1. Identify the cause
First, you should figure out what is causing your eyelashes to hurt. Is it the growth process? Is it due to a bacterial infection? Or is it something else entirely? If you don’t know what’s causing your pain, then you can’t do anything about it.
2. Get rid of any irritants
If you know that the cause of your pain is bacteria or yeast (which are usually found in dirty mascara), then there are several ways that can help you get rid of these irritants. One way is by using a cleanser that has antibacterial properties or a cleanser with anti-fungal properties (both work very well and are great at helping remove any bacteria or yeast that might be causing the pain). You can also try applying an anti-fungal agent onto your lashes before getting out of bed in the morning so this will help prevent them from getting infected during the night and will also prevent any irritation during the day as well. You can also use an eyelash growth serum (which helps moisturize eyelashes) or an eye cream (which helps reduce dryness and fine lines around the eyes) which will help reduce any irritation as well. Also remember that if you have long eyelashes, then they’re more susceptible to infection than short ones because they’re more visible during their growth cycle.
3. Use a lash serum
If all of these methods have not worked for you, then try using an eyelash serum. These are specially formulated to help reduce irritation and help your lashes grow faster. They’re also great at helping your eyelashes get thicker and longer.
4. Use a lash growth oil
If none of these methods are working for you, then it might be time to try a lash growth oil. These oils contain all-natural ingredients that can help nourish your lashes while they’re growing (they contain vitamins and nutrients that are essential for healthy hair growth). They work by creating a protective barrier around the lashes so there is less chance of them getting damaged, which can cause pain in the area where the lashes grow.
5. Try wearing a bandana
If you know that your eyelashes are being irritated by something like mascara, then try wearing a bandana around your eyes during the day so this will reduce any irritation from the mascara or other products on your eyelids as well (you can also try putting an eye cream or serum onto the bandana so this will help moisturize them and prevent them from getting irritated). This will also reduce any risk of infection due to bacteria or yeast on your skin (which is why wearing a bandana all day is important). If this still doesn’t work, then it may be time for you to consider getting professional treatment for your problem because it could be caused by something more serious like an infection (which needs medical attention) or even a condition that requires medication.
Eyelashes almost universally don’t hurt unless something is wrong. This article will explain why your eyelashes hurt and what can be done about it.
