Tweezing seems easy enough on the outside, but there is a right and wrong way to go about it. There’s more to consider than just clamping down on a strand of hair and pulling gently. Want to learn more about how tweezing can impact your skin? Keep scrolling!
When it comes to body hair, there are two camps of people. There’s one group that doesn’t mind thick, coarse body hair and pays little attention to removing it. Then there’s the other group that—save for hair on the brows and scalp—wants every last strand of hair removed. These folks are serious about hair removal, whether it involves shaving, waxing, or tweezing.
Of the three hair removal methods, tweezing is arguably the simplest. It involves using a tweezer to manually pluck away hairs on small areas of skin such as the eyebrows or chin. It’s a surefire way to keep your brows looking nice and shapely without dealing with shaving cream or hot wax, but tweezing is not without its downsides.
Unfortunately, tweezing unwanted hair can still affect your skin in ways you may not have intended (aside from it being mildly painful for some). There are no extreme side effects, but if you don’t tweeze properly or maintain a certain level of care for the tweezer you use, your skin can respond in unseemly ways. Luckily, there are plenty of ways in which you can prevent it from happening. To learn more about how tweezers can affect your skin (plus prevention tips), head over to Hair.com!
