Foolproof Tweezing Tips By Wendy Lewis, Skincare/Beauty Columnist – HealthNewsDigest.com

Tweezing your brows can accomplish two critical missions; in the first place, it is one way to achieve beautiful eye opening arches and tidying up strays at home. For eyebrow maintenance in between professional shapings or to keep the shape that flatters, the grip is the most important. If the tweezer doesn’t grip the finest hairs strongly, you will end up making multiple attempts to pluck out tiny hairs which can end up nipping your delicate skin and causing redness and irritation. Tweezer tips can be pointed, rounded, or slanted, depending on your personal preference. Choose a pair of tweezers that can grip your hairs well enough to tweeze each strand, especially for hard to reach areas, such stray hairs you may have missed on your bikini line, the occasional nipple hair and those little hairs that grow on your toes. The best type of tweezers can remove the hair by pulling it out at the root, rather than breaking the hair before it gets plucked. Tweezers are also essential tools for applying and removing lashes.
The other part of the tweezing equation is to use a great magnifying mirror so you can see exactly what you’re plucking!
