Can you really take care of your eyebrows at home? And how to avoid making mistakes?
Taking care of your eyebrows at home is not an easy task. A wrong move and the disaster is quickly arrived. It is generally wiser to go to an institute to let a professional take care of them. Nevertheless, it can happen that for one reason or another, we can’t go to a beauty salon when our eyebrows start to become more and more untidy. Can we really take care of them at home? L’Atelier du sourcil reveals how to keep a beautiful line between two appointments in an institute.
Do not pluck
The very first piece of advice is simply to do nothing and not give in to the temptation of waxing. It’s sometimes hard to resist the urge to grab your tweezers to remove a few small hairs that are starting to grow back. This first tip may seem strange, but it is beneficial. When a professional restructures and cleans the eyebrows, he or she takes into account the shape of the client’s face in order to choose the ideal eyebrow shape. However, this shape can be altered with too much or too frequent plucking. Thus, your features will not be highlighted as much.
Depending on the speed of hair growth, it is recommended to clean them every two to four weeks. If you wax too often, the hair may not grow back properly. Also, inadvertently removing hair can lead to even more regrowth.
Before returning to a professional, it is therefore preferable to let your eyebrows breathe. To correct them, makeup can work wonders. Simply redraw your arch to bring it back into balance using a powder or a pencil like our Sublimabrow eyebrow pencil. Then erase any remaining small growths by dabbing on a little concealer.
Use only tweezers
If cleaning is necessary, it is important to use only the tweezers. Waxing is much less precise. If it is not successful, it can round out the line or worse, irritate or burn the skin. So, you need the right tools, like our Stylbrow+ tweezers. It first brushes the eyebrow before removing unsightly hairs around the natural line. It is essential to take your time to avoid clumsiness. In addition, it is advisable not to pluck above the eyebrow line so as not to alter its shape. One is satisfied to clean the eyebrow without venturing into its restructuring that one entrusts rather to a professional. You can then pluck the small growths by pulling gently, always in the direction of the hair. We finish by applying a little cream or soothing lotion on the depilated skin.
Cutting long hairs with scissors
To maintain beautiful eyebrows, trimming long hairs can make all the difference. To do this, it’s a good idea to use scissors specially designed for eyebrow hair, like our professional eyebrow scissors, which have an ergonomic design for a better grip. You start by brushing your eyebrows slightly upward with a brush to determine the hairs to be trimmed. Then you cut the ones that stick out, one by one. Avoid doing it in a straight line! We cut on the bias to keep a more natural look.
Nourish your eyebrows
To display beautiful eyebrows, it is important to pamper them. Before thinking about plucking or cutting, we take care of them by making sure to nourish and moisturize them to ensure healthy growth. It is necessary to give the hair time to grow back to get rid of sparse or irregular eyebrows. A beautiful, full brow line usually requires patience and maintenance. To do this, we start by gently removing all makeup. Then, use a specialized treatment like our Revitabow Advanced Revitalizing Treatment. Its unique formula was developed by a doctor to treat the visible signs of aging of eyebrows damaged by hair removal but also by environmental aggressions and certain cosmetic products. This type of treatment generally increases blood circulation in the hair follicle and helps the eyebrows to grow. The hairs will be fortified, softer and shinier. They will be ready for a restructuring, performed in an institute for an absolutely perfect eyebrow line.
