How to Get Rid of a Unibrow?
The most common reason why a person gets a unibrow is due to genetics. A person with an underdeveloped chin may not develop enough skin around their mouth to prevent it from growing into the shape of a beard. This causes them to grow facial hair on the sides of their face instead of just on top like they would normally do. Another possible cause could be due to sun exposure or even smoking cigarettes and alcohol.
Another reason could be due to poor hygiene. People often don’t brush their teeth properly which leads to bacteria growing on the inside of your mouth and causing a build up of dead cells which eventually lead to a buildup of fat underneath the surface. This results in a bald spot forming at the base of your chin.
A third possibility is because you are too young or old for having one. You might think that you have a unibrow if you grew up in the 80’s or 90’s when there was no such thing as plastic surgery. Today, everyone has access to cosmetic procedures that make it look like anything is possible.
There are other reasons as well, but these three seem to be the most common ones.
Why Do I Have a Unibrow?
There are many reasons why a person may grow hair in between their eyes. Normally, a person is not supposed to have any hairs there at all. In most cases, it is due to genetics or not taking proper care of your skin and hygiene. In some rare cases, you may have a tumor on the upper part of your nose or on your forehead. This is very uncommon, and you need to make an appointment with a doctor if you start seeing hairs growing from a place that they are not supposed to be.
To see if it is caused by genetics or poor hygiene, you can look at your parents and siblings to see if anyone else has a unibrow. If no one in your family has a unibrow, then you probably don’t need to worry about it. If some of them have a unibrow, then you probably have a higher chance of developing one as well.
If you or anyone in your family has a unibrow, then you probably won’t need the help of a dermatologist; however, they would be more than happy to help you if you are concerned.
If you are trying to determine the cause of your unibrow, then you will need to do an examination of yourself. To do this, you are first going to need a hand mirror. Next, turn on your bathroom sink’s faucet and fill up a cup with warm water.
Submerge the hand mirror that you have in the water. Excess water should be poured out of the cup until you can no longer see the bottom of it when looking into the hand mirror.
Next, you will need to clean under your eyes with a washcloth and some cleanser. Make sure that you get all of the dirt, oil, and dead skin cells that are in that area. After doing this, look into the hand mirror and try to find any hairs that are around the area where your nose and forehead meet.
These hairs should be thin, light in color, and straight. Remember where these hairs are because you are going to pluck them in a minute.
After finding the hairs and preparing to remove them, take the mirror out of the water and dry off the part of it that you will be looking into. Look into it and try to find any hairs that you missed. If you see any, pluck them out with your fingers.
After finding and removing any other hairs, pluck out the hairs that you originally found. Remember that these hairs are going to be thin and light in color. Be very careful when doing this so you don’t end up hurting yourself by pulling out some of your regular eyebrow hairs.
After removing the unibrow hairs, wash your hands and the hand mirror so you don’t get any bacteria or dirt in the area where you will be rubbing your eyes while you sleep.
Now that you have gotten rid of the hairs that were causing your unibrow, all you need to do is take care of your skin so you don’t get any more hairs growing in that area. See the articles on the recommended skin care routine and diet for why these are important.
Hopefully, with regular maintenance, you will be able to prevent any hairs from growing back in that area so you won’t have to go through this process very often. The only thing you may need to do on a regular basis is tweeze any hairs that grow back in your eyebrow area.
Of course, this method may not work for everyone, especially if the reason for excess hair growth is due to genetics or something more serious like a tumor. If you are concerned that this method did not work, then you may want to see a dermatologist.
