Well-groomed eyebrows can do wonders to your face. They can do so much for your facial expressions. As much as you would care for your skin, eyes and hair, taking care of your eyebrows is equally important. Eyebrows help frame your face well and also enhances your overall look. So if you wish to flaunt those gorgeous brows, make sure to follow certain dos and don'ts for it.
If you don’t already moisturize your skin daily, we’re here to tell you that you’re doing your body a great injustice. Moisturizing is essential, especially for the face which is constantly exposed to the weather and air quality. No matter where you live, we recommend using a moisturizer with at least SPF 30 in it, to both keep your skin healthy and to protect it from the sun. Don’t be afraid to moisturize your brows either – the skin under them and around them also needs it! Adding an SPF moisturizer to your daily routine will reduce your chances of premature aging, sun damage, fine lines and sagging skin – all of which can affect your eyebrow shape.
Life gets in the way sometimes and it can be hard to maintain an exact schedule for something like your brows. We still recommend trying to maintain as consistent a schedule as possible – which is something people tend not to do. When it comes to eyebrow threading, the technique is so great that it can be used when even the tiniest hairs start to show or when your brows are fully grown out. The problem with this, is that it becomes easy to neglect a regular schedule you can thread your brows no matter how long the growth is. The issue that arises is when you’ve achieved your optimum eyebrow shape – threading too soon or waiting too long can actually hurt the brows it’s taken you so long to perfect. If you wait too long, you can lose your shape completely and getting your brows back to the way you like them, may take both your Brow Artist and yourself a lot of time. Similarly, if you get your brows done too early, it’s easy to thin out the shape because you think all the little hairs need to be removed, which is not necessarily the case. Our recommendation: ask your Brow Artist to tell you what the best time frame is, for you to come back into Thread Amsterdam and try to stick to within a week of that frame. For example, if our brow artist suggests a 4-week period between brow appointments, we recommend not going earlier than 3 weeks and later than 5 weeks.
This schedule is also very useful when you do it yourself with our products. When you tweeze your eyebrows every day, you may pluck too much away, which can result with thinner brows than normally.
When it comes to the actual tweezing, it’s important to always hold your skin taut as this will make the process easier and less painful. If you’re still worried about the pain, use talcum powder before. Also, when you shower, your pores will open more. This can make hair removal easier and less painful.
