How to take care of your eyebrows? 4 Beauty tips

Thick or thin, natural or carefully shaped, long or short, free of makeup or filled in – these are just some of the choices we face when it comes to eyebrows. This part of the face tends to get neglected in favour of the eyes but that’s really unfair. The eyebrows play a huge part in the overall look of a face, so here are a few tips on how to take care of them right.

1. Encourage growth

Whatever shape you choose for your eyebrows, the healthier they are, the better they will look. Like the hair on your scalp, brows can benefit from increasing your vitamin intake, since vitamins A, C and E, particularly, are essential for healthy hair growth. In addition to this, you could try some topical treatments to encourage growth of healthy brows. One is using natural oils. Castor oil is particularly good for encouraging hair growth, and so are lemon oil, rose oil and lavender oil. Besides the benefits for your eyebrows, they are fragrant, which, however you look at it, is an added advantage. Then there’s mineral oil, such as Vaseline, which has also been found to have a positive effect on healthy hair growth. There’s also one other trick to get healthier eyebrows but it requires patience. Just leave them be for a year, not plucking them and not waxing them. Yep, it requires patience and temporarily stifling the urge to shape them. But, at the end, it might be worth it!

2. Know the best shape

Time has seen a lot of different fashion trends in eyebrows, from totally plucked out and painted to bushy and thick. Whatever the fad, however, experts agree on a set of parameters for the right-looking eyebrow. These are just two: the brow should start on a point at the top of an imaginary, vertical straight line drawn to the centre of the nostril under the eye, and the peak of its arch must fall in the last third of the eye, towards its outer end. This sounds pretty technical, perhaps, but it’s not so difficult to achieve. Knowing this, here are some of the most common mistakes we make when shaping our eyebrows. First, there’s the brow without an arch, a sort of inverted U. Then there is the arch that’s in the first third of the eye. We’ve seen women with brows like this in cartoons and films, and they haven’t been portrayed as positive characters. Another problem is a brow that’s too long, making the last third lower than the first, and that’s a no-no. The same goes for brows that start too low, too close to the nose. Luckily, all these mistakes are fixable, either by removing the extra hairs or filling in, if the problem’s with the natural shape of the brows.
