Okay, so you’ve spent about 9 hours staring at your eyebrows in the bathroom mirror, and you’ve finally concluded that you want to spruce them up a little. Well, you’re in luck.

Eyebrow serums are one of the best and most popular products on the market today for those of us who want to perfect our brows. Getting the right balance between thickness, boldness, and aesthetics can make or break our look. After all, eyebrows can determine the overall symmetry of our face, and if managed correctly, leave a lasting impression.

Here’s how to apply eyebrow serum to get the best results possible.

Step-by-step guide

Follow our helpful guidelines below to treat your brows to something special.

Over time, you’ll become more comfortable applying the serum on your own and it will become second nature. For now, however, keeping things simple is the best road forward.

1. Wash your face

Before doing anything, make sure the whole face has been washed thoroughly. It’s important to clean the skin to avoid oils from the forehead merging with the eyebrows, which could interrupt the serum’s process. Use a gentle cleanser or gel, or your favorite face wash to prime your face.

2. Apply the serum to the eyebrows

Squeeze a couple of small drops of serum to the end of the soft-tip brow wand, and apply it softly to the eyebrows.

3. Stroke upwards

Using the included brow wand, use upwards brushing movements to sufficiently mix the serum into the eyebrows. We suggest brushing upwards to mimic the natural hair flow and ensure the brows aren’t morphed into unnatural directions.

4. Leave to absorb

From there, let the serum get to work. Over the course of 10-15 minutes (on average) the eyebrows will absorb the serum into all the desired areas, allowing the active ingredients such as keratin and castor oil to take effect. Once this time period has finished, gently rinse your face to complete the process.

The benefits of eyebrow serum

Now that you’ve learned how to effectively apply the serum, it’s worth noting just how beneficial regular usage of eyebrow serum can be.

Packed with potent active ingredients such as keratin, which is an essential protein that strengthens hair, and the popular castor oil, eyebrow serum works on reinforcing the very structure of the hair follicles. Over time, the serum injects rejuvenating moisture, and hydration agents, along with impactful vitamins. All of these elements work together to support and invigorate the foundational framework of the brow hair, toughening it up to face daily challenges. Brows will appear thicker, bolder, and fuller over time, giving you the look you really want.

It’s important to quickly clarify that while brow serum can help the hair thicken up, it can’t make new hair grow any faster than usual. Unfortunately, there is no scientific evidence to suggest otherwise. Thankfully, a good serum can give the existing brow hair such a health boost that it creates a fertile environment for new hair to thrive.

Patience is a virtue

As they say, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Don’t expect to see miraculous results overnight with an eyebrow serum, all good things come to those who wait.

Using brow serum consistently for an initial period of about 12 weeks will give the brows the best chance of responding positively to the treatment. If you want bolder, thicker brows, keep this routine up and track your results as you go. The serum is fine to be used daily or every other day.

Final word

That’s it! Eyebrow serum, when used correctly and regularly, can help your brows achieve a striking, bold look. Make sure to stay consistent and include a well-regarded eyebrow serum in your daily routine.

The benefits of brow serum speak for themselves. Go and get the brows of your dreams!
