How to save over-plucked eyebrows


If you’ve gone a bit too pluck-happy with the tweezers recently, resulting in sparse, barely-there brows, you’re probably panicking and contemplating getting them tattooed back on so they’ll stay there for life. Screen Shot 2017-03-13 at 2.39.19 PM It’s not unusual for people to accidentally go overboard when shaping their eyebrows so there’s no need to worry; we’re here to ease your anxieties and get your brows back on track. As for how to promote hair growth, the most important thing is to avoid any further plucking – even if a stray hair pops up. Any stray hairs can be brushed into place to keep tidy. Regularly exfoliate the brow bones to stimulate hair growth; a toothbrush is a good tool to use if you can’t get in there properly with your fingertips. Gently rub for up to a minute to see results. Moisturising is vital after a good scrub, and your brows shouldn’t be neglected. Castor oil is a beauty secret you need to know about; it’s full of nutrients to boost hair growth and circulation, and its vitamin E and fatty acids will nourish. Rub in as if you were giving your brows a mini massage, moving your fingers around the area around your hairs for a few minutes. A brow serum can aid hair growth too! Eating more healthy foods that boost hair growth will help; yellow peppers, salmon, eggs, sweet potatoes and avocados are all nourishing – sounds like a tasty salad to us! © Cover Media
