Hair loss that comes with age doesn’t just affect the hair on your head; it can also affect your eyebrows. Seems kind of silly to think about it, but it’s true. When your eyebrows thin out or completely fall out it makes you look older in some cases much older than you are.
When we’re young a lot of us put a huge emphasis on keeping our brows plucked or waxed. The illusion that thin brows are “a thing” is simply that an illusion. It doesn’t make you look younger and sometimes can make you look older.
So, what can you do to help stimulate growth of new brows below are several things that might be helpful.
Stop plucking your eyebrows In many cases, over-plucking your eyebrows are what is responsible to the thinning brows now. If you see stray brows try to brush them down rather than pluck them. You need all the brows you can get at this point so getting rid of those unruly ones won’t help your situation.
Exfoliate Don’t stop at exfoliating just your skin do your eyebrows too. Use a small brush, toothbrush or a washcloth to get rid of the dead skin which will help stimulate new growth of your brows.
Use an all-natural eyebrow serum When you purchase a serum to help with hair regrowth, find one that is rich in Omega fatty acids and Vitamin E. Both of these will help to nourish your skin and the brow follicles.
Massage your eyebrows everyday Each day you should massage either a drop of olive oil or castor oil into your eyebrows. Rub the area about 5 minutes to give your body the necessary Vitamin B and to help increase your circulation which in turn promotes hair growth. Don’t use too much oil and be sure to wipe away any excess.
Maintain a healthy diet Always drink plenty of water anyway, but stay hydrated. Eat foods that are high in Vitamins A, C and E as each promotes healthy skin and hair.
Hair transplant If you’re feeling really self-conscious about your lack of eyebrows you might consider getting transplants. Hair is taken from your head and is transplanted into your eyebrows to help fill in the eyebrow.
If you feel that the loss of the hair in your eyebrows is related to medication you are taking, talk to your doctor about other medications that might be prescribed instead. If it’s because of a skin condition you might have, check with a dermatologist and see what options are available for you.
Feeling good about yourself is vital to leading a happy and productive life. Don’t let something like thinning eyebrows hold you back. You can do something about it and starting with the tips above might be just the help you needed!
