Use a pain killer or a numbing cream on the area you are about to tweeze to help reduce the pain. As soon as you are done, rinse it off thoroughly.

Warm it

Before you tweeze, make sure you soften your skin. Dip a wash cloth or cotton pad in a bowl of hot water or milk. Fold the cloth in half and lay it over your eyebrows for a  minute. The hot temperature helps to open up the hair follicles, making eyebrow hairs easier to remove.

Apply chilled aloe vera gel or some moisturizer to get calm the redness and soothe the skin.

Good luck… and don’t over tweeze!
