FULL LASHES + HEALTHY GLOW
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.

The result: a more even, radiant complexion.
