Show me a woman who enjoys the process of growing eyebrows and I’ll show you a saint! Growing out your eyebrows can be a depressing time when you feel less than 100%. You imagine everyone noticing your “not so put together look,” when no one actually pays attention to them.
The way you feel reflects just how important eyebrows are to the face. Depending on how you groom them, they can change your overall look. So many of us have walked down that path where we’ve overdone it, but just continued that way. You think you’re doing yourself a favour by keeping your eyebrows in check, but fail to notice when you’re overdoing it until it is too late. What used to be beautiful brows becomes a distant memory very quickly. How can you grow your eyebrows back after a serious over tweezing disaster?
Growing your eyebrows
Put the tweezers away for a minimum of 12 weeks. Yes, they will look strange at first, but you’ll eventually get used to it. Groom the brows daily to promote growth in the right direction. After about 12 weeks, you can start plucking the the stray brows. However, don’t get carried away.
In order for your facial hair or any hair to grow, it has to be in an environment that promotes hair growth. This means, you need to hydrate and nourish your skin. Vaseline creates a sealing barrier. Furthermore, it locks in moisture to help speed up your skin’s natural recovery process. All you have to do is clean and dry the area. Then, apply Vaseline over them 3 -4 times a day.
Coconut oil helps promote hair growth just like Vaseline. It creates a barrier that locks in moisture. However, it also stimulates cellular metabolism while increasing circulation. This, in turn, promotes hair growth. You can use any oil such as olive oil, jojoba oil, even castor oil. All you have to do is apply it on your brows before you go to bed and let it go to work.
Masking those over-tweezed or over-plucked brows
Fake the shape
Use brow highlighting pencil to conceal new growth, and simply draw on area and blend. Brush hair up and out to create a unified shape and help strays blend in. Apply a brow powder to define the shape and blend drifters.
Growing out over-plucked brows is no easy feat, but it’s so, so worth it.
