I not too long ago sat down with famend forehead professional Sania Vucetaj to talk about all issues forehead care, and one particular tip she gave labored instantly: Cease making use of skincare in your brows. Whereas I’ve by no means been one to slather my night time cream on my eyebrows straight, I’ve been the alternative of conscious till now.
Her reasoning? All the thick lotions and oils you employ on the pores and skin can simply overwhelm the fragile hairs that make up you brows. It is not that the oils and butters themselves hurt these hairs, however think about making use of your serums and night time lotions to the hair in your head—it wouldn’t precisely look voluminous afterward, would it not? Likelihood is you’d want extra stylers to amp up your ‘do; within the case of forehead care, which means slicking up the limp hairs with a sticky (usually not-too hydrating) gel.
So I put this concept to the check. I did my greatest to keep away from the brows when utilizing my skincare merchandise and gently dabbed a moist rag on them afterward to verify they had been as clear as might be.
As soon as I began doing this trick, I observed I didn’t even want forehead gel to maintain these hairs standing up straight–aka, one much less step in my day by day make-up routine. What’s extra, my brows felt smooth and touchable, somewhat than crunchy and stiff.
Vucetaj even says my probabilities of rising again sparse patches have turn into even higher, due to this straightforward swap. So the following time you head to the toilet to your day by day skincare routine, keep in mind to be strategic with the place you place it and all the time skip the brows—apart from a correct forehead progress serum, in fact.
