There are few things scarier than a microscopic mirror when you haven’t had your monthly wax. The eyebrows are the doorway to the soul, or something like that, so it’s important to make sure these bushybeauties are in tip, top shape — always. Luckily, there is more than one way to go about getting rid of pesky eyebrow hair and other facial hair that doesn’t quite belong. Whether you’re a waxer, a plucker, or a I’ll-do-whatever-it-takes kinda gal, follow these easy steps to ensure your brows are good to go.
There’s an old wives tale that says hair grows back darker when you tweeze it. Pish posh! Tweezing is a relatively safe method of hair removal, especially if it’s only a couple of stray hairs you’re dealing with. If you’ve got tons to trim, tweezing isn’t your best bet. Invest in a pair of good tweezers and a good magnifying mirror to make it a breeze. Also, do so after a warm or hot bath. This will loosen follicles up a bit.
Waxing may be your go-to option, but let’s face it, this stuff hurts. With this, you run the risk of infection or ingrown hairs, so use caution. Do a test run on a small patch of skin before committing to a full body wax. You’ll thank us later!
Lasers are your best bet for long term answers to annoying facial hair. These work best on pale skin.It will take several treatments to make a difference, and these can some time be painful, but we guarantee they’ll be oh-so worth it when you’re rocking a face smooth as a baby’s bottom.
Creams and moisturizers that claim to slow hair growth may be onto something. Give these a try and see if they work for you. After a few months, you may notice less hair, or hair may seem less obvious. With time, you may get to cut back on tweezing. Score!
