They’re always there and go through a monthly cycle when old hairs are replaced by new ones, but do we really know how important your eyebrows and eyelashes actually are? Well they’re there for a few practical reasons:
– They protect
Both of your eyebrows and eyelashes are there to protect against dust, dirt and sweat from going into your eyes.
– They’re part of your expression
And they make you recognisable too! Studies have proven that without your eyebrows, we are less likely to recognise each other by photos alone.
– They shade you from the sun
Your eyelashes are great for shading your eyes from direct sunlight and act as an umbrella in the rain too!
– They balance your facial features
We’ve seen those scary celebrity photos with no eyebrows right? Your facial features such as your eyes, nose and jaw contours become unbalanced without your eyebrows.
– They can sense danger
Oncoming particles and insects are sensed by your eyelashes, which then causes you to close your eyes and protect them from any danger.
– They accentuate your eyes
Your eyelashes add shape and elongate your eyelashes, as well as your eyebrows framing your face and eyes.
