Why do we have Eyebrows and Eyelashes???

Thick Eyebrows… Do we need them??

Eyebrows come in a number of different shapes and sizes and are known to be a way we can express our moods but, did you know the real reason why we have eyebrows and eyelashes? Most people think we have them just for beauty or cosmetic purposes but they actually serve a much bigger purpose than just that.

 

Our eyebrows are actually there to help keep sweat, rain, and other unwanted moistures away from our eyes. With keeping the moisture away from the eye it helps to keep your vision clear. Our eyebrows are also a natural way to deflect sunlight from our eyes. The arch of your eyebrow and the direction of the hairs help direct the flow of the moisture to go away from your eyes.

 

Always keep in mind that when plucking, waxing, or even shaving your eyebrows that if you make them thin they can’t do the job they were meant to do. When you have thin to no eyebrows you run a greater risk of getting an eye infection.

 

Those Lashes

Our eyelashes do the most important job to protect or eyes. There are lots of things in the air like dust, sand, dirt, and even those pesky bugs flying around that can harm our eyes, but your eyelashes are there to help. Your eyelashes automatically have a reaction to tell your eyelids they need to shut to stop something from getting in and irritating or even scratching your eye.

 

Your eyebrows and eyelashes should stay healthy on their own but if you notice irritation especially to your eye make sure you see your optometrist. Most of all remember to wear those Brows and Lashes and wear them proud!
