Why do eyelashes get coarser and shorter with age?

Article by Fabafterfifty

Marci Marrek answers our questions on eyelashes and eyebrows

Why do eyelashes get coarser/shorter as we age?

It would be fantastic if science had an answer to this question.  We know that everything about all hair reverts back to genetics.  There are many evolutionary theories, but no real answers.

What are the options?

We have literally thousands of customer (many over 50) who have been using our products with grand success to achieve longer, fuller lashes and fuller healthier brows.  Our Eyelash Activating Serum is proven to promote fullness and length and also support condition.  Our Revitalizing Gloss leaves the lashes and brows at their top condition and boosts both the Eyelash Activating Serum and Eyebrow Renewing Serum.  When the eyelashes and eyebrows are nourished with our products they are also more flexible, pliable, elastic (less coarse and unruly) meaning healthier.

Why do eyebrows thin as we age?

Eyebrows also have a growth cycle and in some reports the theory is that after a brow hair has gone through around 20 cycles, it doesn’t grow back again.  There isn’t any real proof in the “why” – but we do have proof that eyebrows grow back, after being missed for many years, with the use of M2Brows.

Why are the appearance of eyebrows and eyelashes important in respect to looking more youthful?

Accenting and framing of the eye always tends to enhance ones appearance.  As with smooth, non-wrinkled skin which implies youth, so do long, full, eyelash and healthy, well shaped brows.  They define, frame, and create more expression.

How do products such as M2 work?

M2Lashes and M2Brows work due to the perfect balance and concentration of their ingredients.  With the key active ingredient MDN, and the addition of Black Sea Rod Oil in M2Brows,  the follicle is stimulated therefore making the lashes fuller and longer, the brows fuller and extended.

How quickly should you see results? What happens if you stop using?

With M2Lashes Eyelash Activating Serum visible results will be noticed within 6-8 weeks with maximum results being achieved by week 16.  With M2Brows Eyebrow Renewing Serum the results will begin to be visible within 4-6 weeks.  Best results are achieved when both products are supported with the use of our Revitalizing Gloss which boosts the action by creating improved conditions for growth.

In 2006, Marci Marrek, a make-up artist in America heard, from a client who had undergone chemotherapy, about a product that demonstrably stimulates the growth of eyelashes. Back in Germany, this product idea triggered the partnership and success story enjoyedby two friends, the American Marci Marrek and the German Elke Moysies.

The products are available in Harrods and via their own website, www.m2beaute.com.  We currently have the eyelash and brow products being reviewed for Fabafterfifty – watch out in our product review section for the results.
