Eyebrows are one of the most important features of your face. They can brighten up your look when they’re well-groomed, but when they’re looking a little out of shape, they can frame your face in an unflattering way. If you want to keep your eyebrows on point, you’re going to have to keep those hairs under control, which means breaking out your ëpîler Tweezers Set on occasion. If you’re a little nervous or unsure about how to pluck your eyebrows with your ëpîler tweezers, don’t worry; just follow the simple steps listed below, and you’ll be able to groom those arches like a pro.
Step-By-Step Guide To Pluck Your Eyebrows With Your ëpîler Tweezers
If you want to make your tweezing job a lot easier, pluck your eyebrows right after you shower, or simply make sure that you have washed your face thoroughly with very warm water before beginning to pluck. If you do this, your hair follicles will be more open, and the eyebrow hairs themselves will be much softer. Generally, if your hairs are a little too slippery to grab with tweezers, you may need to dab a cotton ball into some rubbing alcohol and then lightly wipe your eyebrows with the alcohol to ease some of the slickness. That being said, you should have no such issues with your ëpîler Tweezers; the anti-slip tips are guaranteed to grab your hair the first time, every time.
If you have sensitive skin, or you just want to minimize the pain as much as possible, you can use tooth or gum numbing cream/gel in order to numb your skin a little bit to help “ease the tweeze.” You can find this type of cream/gel in any pharmacy, but if you’re short on numbing supplies, you can apply ice to the area right before you start tweezing, and it will numb it enough for you to tweeze without too much of a sting.
Make sure that you have plenty of light in the room, and if you can find a room that allows in some natural sunlight, so much the better. This will help you see all of those fine little hairs that can often be missed.
Brush your eyebrow hairs in an upward direction using either a fine-toothed comb or an extra (clean) toothbrush. If you notice any “wild hairs”, or hairs that protrude way out of line, be sure to trim them with manicure scissors to align them with your other eyebrow hairs.
Use your ëpîler Tweezers and start to pluck; be sure to pull the hairs out in the direction of their natural growth. It is also a good idea to pull your skin taut near the plucking area, as this will offer less resistance during the actual plucking action. The last thing you would want is to pull hard with your tweezers, feel the sting, then find out later that all you did was give the hair a good jerk without pulling it all the way out.
You can use a long-handled eyeshadow brush or eyebrow pencil as a type of “measuring stick” to help you keep everything in alignment. For example, when you hold a long-handled eyeshadow brush straight up-and-down at the inside corner of your eye, you will get a good gauge as to where the interior edge of your brow (the edge closest to the bridge of your nose) should be. Again, get your ëpîler Tweezers and pluck any hairs that have grown too far inward to avoid any potential “unibrow” that might try to develop.
The tail of your brow (i.e., the edge closest to your temple) should not extend too far outside of the general eye region. To be on the safe side, pluck any hairs that reach beyond the outside corner of your eye.
Your arches should not be too angled or pointy, nor should they slant in any kind of dramatic fashion. Use your ëpîler Tweezers and pluck any hairs that would interrupt a smooth, slight arching shape, paying special attention to the hairs near the outer corners of your eyebrows.
Don’t tweeze your eyebrows with your face super-close to the mirror the entire time. Each time you pluck a few hairs, stand back and take a look at the “big picture” for a second before proceeding. This will prevent the all-too-common practice of overplucking.
Once you have adequately plucked your eyebrows with your ëpîler Tweezers and have given your brows a nice, clean and elegantly angled shape, rinse your face off with warm water again. Apply tea tree oil with a cotton ball to soothe and refresh the plucked area. You’re all set!
How To Remove Ingrown Hair With Tweezers?
The pointed ëpîler Tweezers in the kit are exceptionally useful when you are dealing with ingrown hair around the eyebrows or anywhere else on the body. To begin with wash the tweezers and sterilize the tips by holding them in an antiseptic solution or rubbing alcohol for a few seconds. Now, you are ready to start:
Step-By-Step Guide To Get Rid Of Ingrown Hair With Your ëpîler Tweezers
Wet a sponge or loofah in warm water and rub it around the ingrown hair in circular motion. This will clean the area and exfoliate the skin. Also, clean the area by wiping it with rubbing alcohol.
Slide the needle like tip of your ëpîler tweezers under the ingrown hair; get as close to the follicle as possible. Pull up gently, to extract the hair out of the skin but make sure that you do not break the hair.
Do not pluck just yet; instead, let the follicle heal for 1-2 days otherwise you will end up with a scab that may leave a scar.
Once the follicle has healed, hold the skin taut and pull out the hair from the root. Pluck in one swift motion in the direction of hair growth.
Soothe the skin by dabbing some tea tree oil or aloe gel.
