Facial shaving is all the rage these days and my social media feed is full of detailed videos of this hot new skincare trend. TBH, it’s oddly satisfying to watch those makeup artists/beauty bloggers holding their skin taut, gliding the razor smoothly, removing the peach fuzz and dead skin patch b y patch. But while it’s fulfilling to see their makeup gliding flawlessly on their bright, glabrous skin, I wonder why they often forget to shed light on eyebrow shaving! Perhaps, it could be a risky affair to shave that tricky, little area with lots of contours on cam. But here’s the deal: your eyebrows are literally the defining feature of your face. And nope, you don’t have to make the effort of getting them threaded or waxed at the salon. Just like your face, you can shave your eyebrows at home too. Trust me, the beauty gworls do it too. Follow this simple three-step guide like a Bible and you’ll get a hang of it in a jiffy:
Step 1: Choose The Right Razor
The eyebrow area is smaller and has lots of high and low points compared to the rest of your face. So it’s always better to use a single-blade razor that can easily move through its contours and remove the fine hair without causing nicks and cuts. If you’re not hands on with a single-blade razor, you can opt for an electric trimmer with a small tip or a small multi-blade razor too.
Step 2: Wash Your Face
The golden rule of shaving your skin is to always start with a clean base. So wash your face with a mild cleanser and pat it dry with a soft, clean towel. This step ensures that you get rid of all the excess oil, dust, and dirt on your skin.
Step 3: Define The Shape Of Your Brows
If you’re a pro at proportions, you can make a rough mental calculation and decide the areas where you want to remove your fine eyebrow hair from. Cautious ones like me can simply define the desired shape of the eyebrows using an eyebrow pencil and start removing the hair from the unmarked areas.
Step 4: Shave Shave Baby!
Hold your razor at a 45-degree angle with your skin. With your other hand, hold your skin taut. Now, glide your razor in the direction of your hair growth. Go slow and work on a small area at a time. Go on till you get the desired shape.
Step 5: Moisturise
Lastly, dust off the fallen hair from your face and use a moisturiser to nourish your skin. This step is a real deal-maker as it restores the skin’s hydration and soothes it.
