Q: I have a problem with over-plucking my eyebrows. Any tips for improving my technique?

A: According to Shape Magazine, avoid using a magnifying mirror – which calls attention to hairs that are best left alone. Only pluck what the naked eye can see and pause after every few plucks, step back and assess your progress.

Q: I just tried plucking my brows at home for the first time and am stuck with very uneven brows. I’m afraid that trying to fix them will make matters worse. What should I do?

A: Thankfully, your brows will grow back in about two weeks. In the meantime, even them out using a brow pencil to fill in the thinner one while leaving the thicker one alone.

Q: The skin around my eyebrows becomes red and irritated after I tweeze. What’s the best way to calm the irritation?

A: Showering or washing your face prior to plucking opens up follicles, allowing hairs to be more effortlessly extracted. Also, soak a cotton ball in witch hazel and gently press over your eyebrow immediately after plucking to reduce redness and irritation. Applying a mild moisturizing lotion can calm skin, too.

Q: My boyfriend has starting going prematurely bald. What can he do to slow down hair loss?

A: Unfortunately, this is an issue that many men face earlier than they would like. A topical treatment, such as Rogaine Men's Foam Triple Pack, can help regrow hair that has already been lost. This non-greasy, non-dripping foam contains 5% minoxidil, an FDA-approved ingredient that has been proven to regrow hair. It’s also a good idea to use a daily hair regrowth shampoo, such as DS Laboratories Revita High Performance Hair Growth Stimulating Shampoo. This product uses antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties to stimulate the scalp and hair follicles, gently moisturizing and encouraging new hair growth.

Q: What types of ingredients should I look for – and avoid – in an after-shave?

A: After shaving, Today recommends avoiding any moisturizer with alcohol, which can be drying and cause ingrown hairs. The perfect after-shave refreshes and reenergizes the skin while also soothing post-shave irritation. If he has sensitive skin, it can be helpful to select an after-shave that’s antiseptic, which can help reduce small bumps and irritations caused by razor burn.
