Hor­monal shifts make our eye­lashes just as prone to thin­ning as the hair on our head is, says Dr. En­gle­man. And that loss can lead to un­flat­ter­ing sparse spots on the lash line that make us looked tired and aged. Amino acids to the res­cue! “Amino acids in­crease lash—as well as brow—growth by in­creas­ing blood flow to hair fol­li­cles and stim­u­lat­ing the genes re­spon­si­ble for form­ing each eye­lash and brow hair,” ex­plains Dr. En­gle­man. Amino acids have also been shown to in­crease the di­am­e­ter of hair fol­li­cles, which helps make an eye flut­ter look even fuller within 30 days. Try: Vivis­cal Ex­tra Strength ($50 for 60 tablets, Vivis­cal.com). BONUS: Amino acids also in­hibit the en­zyme ty­rosi­nase, which reg­u­lates the pro­duc­tion of melanin (the pig­ment that gives skin color). The re­sult: a more even, ra­di­ant com­plex­ion.
