The skin around the brows can be more sensitive after waxing. Apply a cream or gel that contains cooling ingredients such as aloe vera to soothe and moisturise the skin.
Try not to tweeze in-between sessions. You risk hairs breaking instead of being pulled out from the root. This could result in in-grown hairs. Use a concealer or highlighter to cover up stray hairs or regrowth. A highlighter will also lift your brows visually.
If you have to tweeze, do not tweeze a bare brow. Fill in your brow like you usually would before plucking. This will help you avoid accidentally removing a hair that should not be plucked.
Keep your skin taut while tweezing or threading as this helps make sure the hair is removed from the root. Always tweeze your hair in the direction of your hair growth.
All the powder, pomade and gel you’ve used on you eyebrows can often clog the pores just below your eyebrow’s skin and cause you to break out there too.
