Skip the expensive formulas, and use these affordable tips to repair over-plucked eyebrows. Whether one, or both, brows need repair, you can start the process today while waiting for the hair to soon grow back.
Follow a few easy skincare steps to promote re-growth of your eyebrow hair. Washing your face regularly is more important than ever. Cleanse your face twice a day, concentrating on the bare skin above your eyes, will keep your follicles clean, and help prevent any bumps on your skin as the hair regrows. Make washing your face at night a priority to remove any makeup, as well as oils and bacteria that may be on your skin after your busy day. Also, gently rub your eyebrows at least once a day to promote circulation in the area. Good circulation encourages hair growth.
Your diet can play a surprising role in repairing over-plucked eyebrows. Eating healthy food can strengthen hairs and promote growth. Get your brows back to their full selves sooner with the right foods! Protein is one food to include in your diet; given that hair is a protein itself, increasing protein consumption could make sense. Chicken and eggs are good examples of protein-rich foods. Items that include caffeine are ones to keep off your list it can weaken hair growth. Vitamins, in addition to a healthy diet, are also beneficial. Vitamin B-complex, Vitamin C with bioflavonoids, and Vitamin E are all “beneficial for vitality of the hair,” writes Yvonne Kay. Consult with your doctor before taking any vitamins to ensure it is safe for you to do so.
An eyebrow pencil is a great tool to transform your over-plucked eyebrows. Use a soft pencil to change the shape of your brows until the hair grows back. Begin by choosing a liner color that matches your natural brow hairs. If you are at the store, and unsure of the exact color to choose, ask the cosmetician for assistance. Use the pencil to shade in the bare areas where you expect re-growth. Start at your inner eye and work your way outward using light strokes to begin with. Simulate individual hairs with each stroke of the liner. Start lightly to fill in the area, then go back and darken the color if you prefer a more striking look. The strokes of color recreate the hairs until they re-grow, giving the effect of fuller brows.
Starting today, regularly wash your skin and keep a healthy diet to encourage hair growth. While you wait for the new hairs to come, use an eyebrow pencil to shape your brows. Soon you will have healthier brows and a big smile on your face.
