I have a confession to make. I don’t tweeze my eyebrows as much or as often as I should. The reason? Plucking is painful. I think my eyebrows have a nice natural shape (at least I like it) and most of the stray hairs can hardly be seen in real life anyway. It’s only when I take macro photos of my eyes that they look huge and I’m tempted to reach for the tweezers straight away lol.
And I would, if I didn’t remember how much that hurts. Ok, it’s not the most painful thing in the world, but I’m a wimp when it comes to tolerate pain. So, I’ve been looking for a way to make tweezing less painful and I think I’ve found it. Ice. Yep, just take some ice and rub it all over the eyebrow area. This will numb it so when you tweeze it will hurt less.
It is so simple that I really can’t believe why I didn’t think of it before. Another thing that helps minimize the pain is to grab the hair as close to the root as possible and pull in the direction it grows. Don’t just pull in any direction or the hair will be harder to remove and you’ll just inflict unnecessary pain on yourself.
Now, I don’t really have any excuses anymore not to tweeze my eyebrows regularly.
What about you? Do you tweeze your eyebrows? And how do you deal with the pain?
