Plucking the eyebrows can make you look more beautiful. However, do it wrong and it can also give you more headaches than you can imagine.
Plucking eyebrows the wrong way can damage your skin. This can lead to the formation of scars. Hair does not grow in fibrous scar tissue. As such, it is best to dab your eyebrows with a little amount of Vaseline to help minimize damaging the skin. It will also help to be gentle.
Aggressive plucking of the eyebrows can also traumatize the skin. This can lead to redness and swelling. In some cases, you can also have ingrown hairs. The opening in the skin can also serve as entry points for germs.
You can have an infection if you are not careful in plucking your brows. To minimize the risk of infection, it is important to sterilize your tweezers. Immerse them in rubbing alcohol or wash them using warm soapy water. Pluck the brows in the direction of its growth.
Skin discoloration is another consequence of poor eyebrow-plucking technique. Inflammation can cause skin changes, including pigmentation. You can make this go away by applying a sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 30.
