How to Pluck your facial hairs?
Tweezing is another effective and inexpensive way to remove facial hair. This method works slightly differently than shaving. Instead of removing hair with a razor blade, tweezers are designed to pluck or pull hair from the roots.
Tweezing works on any facial hair. It’s particularly useful when shaping the eyebrows. Typically, the results of tweezing last longer than shaving — up to three to eight weeks.
To tweeze facial hair, follow these steps:
- Before you begin, wipe your face with a warm washcloth to soften the skin.
- Isolate the hairs you want to pluck.
- While holding your skin taut, pluck one hair at a time.
- Always pull or pluck in the direction of hair growth.
Tweezing can cause slight discomfort, but it’s not usually painful. If you have pain, rub an ice cube over the area to reduce redness and inflammation.
Be sure to disinfect your tweezers with alcohol before and after plucking. Like shaving, tweezing can also cause ingrown hairs.
