Just like our hair with our sometimes unsuitable or too frequent masks and shampoos, eyelashes and eyebrows are often abused by our galore make-up and make-up removal. However, these hairs located around the eyes play an essential role. And for good reason, they have the particularity of protecting them from external aggressions such as dust, sweat or even sebum. Their absence can even be the cause of repetitive irritation of the eye. It is therefore essential to take care of our hair, whether our eyebrow arch or the fringe of our eyelashes are harmonious or not. How ? If theCastor oil is known for its benefits on our body hair (and hair), new products are being added to our beauty routines: treatments or more precisely serums for eyelashes and eyebrows for a real brow rehab.
What is an eyelash and eyebrow care serum?
These serums, specially designed to care for eyelashes and eyebrows, have many benefits. In addition to nourishing them, these treatments promise stronger, denser, thicker and longer eyelashes and eyebrows. In short, a return of vitality. In addition, “some of the active ingredients contained in the formulas stimulate hair growth, more specifically existing and inactive bulbs, and promote the anchoring of the hair in the skin”, explains Nicky Wong, scientific manager at Talika. These treatments are particularly recommended when the hair follicle is weakened after excessive hair removal, when the passage of time makes them more timid or when a pathology (and its treatment) is the cause of their hair loss. Be careful, however, not to misunderstand: “these products do not create new hairs. A dead bulb can no longer grow back”, specifies the expert.
While some products combine all these virtues in a single formula, others are more specific and meet a very specific need. In this case, it is up to us to choose which one suits us best according to our expectations. Note also that some products offer a 2-in-1 action with formulas suitable for eyelashes and eyebrows, while others distinguish uses according to the area to be treated. “If you opt to use a targeted product and ultimately want to use it on another area, it is best to take a product dedicated to eyelashes to use on the eyebrows and not the other way around. It is a question of ocular tolerance,” according to the expert.
How to properly use an eyelash and eyebrow serum?
Easy to use, the serums for eyelashes and eyebrows are applied morning and evening to cleansed skin (without rubbing too much so as not to damage the hair), cleansed and dry. As a general rule, the applicator in the form of a small brush allows an even distribution along the lash line or the eyebrow line. “It is then necessary to ensure that the treatment touches the surface of the hair follicle so that the product goes up to the bulb”, specifies the expert. Other treatments, in the form of a mascara brush, are applied from the root to the tips of the hairs, like a base for eyelashes and eyebrows. For each, we follow the instructions for use and the recommendations of the brand.
