Have you ever wondered - why do we have eye brows and eyelashes
Have you ever tried to gaze at the mirror and concentrate on those fuzzy strange looking features, your eyebrows and eyelashes? Why do we have them around and above our eyes? Are they just there for us to demonstrate our emotions and express them in a certain way, do they play an important role in our health or they are just there to make us look beautiful and handsome. We lost a lot of excess hair on our face and body as the human race evolved. A core part of our features has always been the eyelashes and the eyebrows. Our vision can be kept clear and our eyes remain clean because of the presence of the eyelashes and the eyebrows. Let us know more about the necessity to have the eyelashes and eyebrows.
The human body have a Swiss Army Knife-the Eyebrows!
They are meant to protect your eyes. They direct moisture, rain, sweat and external particles off from your eyeballs because of the shape of the brows and brow ridge.
People shape their eyebrows to make them perfect and beautiful. They can be seen clearly from a distance, they appear very prominent over the forehead. And not to forget the most important part of having eyebrows is that they serve as identification for a human, and they don’t change much over a period of time.
Infection and irritation can be prevented by the Eyelashes
Your eyes are protected from infection, irritation and moisture because the eyelashes act as a barrier to protect your eyes from external objects. Unwanted particles are kept away when you sleep and closing your eyes, these curled lashes come together and conceal your eyes protecting them from any particle getting into your eyes. The lashes help to keep water away from your eyes when your eyes are open because of their curved shape. Any external object can be detected by your eyelashes before it gets very close to your eyes. Your eyelashes act as a sensor for your eyes. Example: your eyes suddenly blink and you sense a gnat hovering around your eyes, your eyelashes senses this and blink to avoid any injury to your eyes. Now you know how important it is to keep these assets healthy. While grooming keep away from any cosmetics that will lead to loss of these assets.
