Eyebrows have grown to become a huge focus in beauty and makeup looks. Thanks to the rise of Instagram, we’ve all really learned the difference a face-framing brow can make to your look overall. It’s a great way to really highlight your natural features, using something that we all have–eyebrows. Of course the problem with brows being such a big focus is if you were someone who tweezed your brows for an extended period of time. Thin brows were popular for quite a while, and so many women ended up over tweezing their brows leaving them with very sparse eyebrows. Sound like you? We’ve recently discovered some tips for growing out your eyebrows that may help you if you’ve been feeling frustrated with this area of your beauty routine.
Put the Tweezers Down
First things first. When you’re looking to grow out your eyebrows the first thing you need to do is leave them alone! Yes, this means no plucking, waxing or threading related to your brows. As tempting as it may get at certain points, you need to leave your brows alone completely for an extended period of time. It’s actually suggested by experts to leave them alone completely for 3-4 months. This allows your brows to go through their natural growth cycle, without being put under stress or damage that can be caused from removing the hair. Before you think about finding a way to get around this…this also refers to the hairs that aren’t directly on the hairline you’re trying to create/grow out. Leave ALL of your brows alone completely.
Give It Time
As much as we’d all love to have instant results, growing out your brows isn’t something that’s going to give you those instant results. In fact, many experts suggest that you won’t begin to see a lot of the growth that you really want until around 6 months into the process. As tempting and frustrating as it can be you need to maintain your patience with the process of growing out your brows. Using special brow products like eyebrow pencils, gels and even concealer can help to mask the growing out phases to allow your hair to still grow without removing the hairs when you get frustrated.
Use A Brow Serum
The great part about the world we live in today, is we have a lot of different options with beauty products and that’s not limited to growing out your brows. Using a brow serum that promotes hair grow can be incredibly helpful throughout this process. Do some research to find the best brow serum for you. Once you find the best serum for you and your brows, the key is consistency in applying the product to your hair/skin area around the brows. As great as a brow serum can be, if you’re not consistent you’re not going to see the results you’re hoping for. Additionally, brow serums do help with the growth process but they don’t make it an overnight process (see above).
