    Grumpy Skin BRIGHT red after tweezing

    Advertisements
    Does anyone else have an issue with how red their skin gets around your eyebrows after tweezing them? I seriously get a HUGE bright red unibrow after tweezing. It's god awful. And it last forever. I have to plan to do nothing where I would need to go in public for a few hours after I pluck them. Nothing really covers it And it burns and itches Which when I itch it, with out thinking, it only makes them look worse I assume.

    Does anyone else have this annoying problem? Is there any way to prevent this? Or is it just something you have to deal with?

    love me some Maegan

    My redness isn't that bad, but I notice it's less red when I pluck right after taking a shower. I read somewhere that your pores are more open so there's less tugging to get the hairs out.

    Wash your face with warm water first, ice them when you're done, come to Kentucky.

    I usually have a cool wash cloth to run over my eye brow area when I tweeze. Takes the redness away for me. I never get it TOO bad though.

    Mine gets like that. It's not so bad if I wash my face with hot water first though. And I always pluck at night so I'm normal by morning

    Pluck right after the shower, and do it more often. If you do more maintenance then you're pulling out less hairs at once, causing less redness.

    I second this. The best "quick fix" for me is usually baby oil, then wash face with hot water.
