- Careful with these. These use chemicals to weaken the hair follicles which allows you to wipe the hair away from your skin. Sensitive skins may not be able to handle some of the harsh chemicals. Also, if using professional serums and other home products, they may not mix well and cause a reaction.
- With at-home waxing, you have to be extra cautious and I say to leave it up to the professional. There is the potential for infection, burns and abrasions, as well as transmitting viral and bacterial infections. This is not a time we want to compromise the skin, especially on our face. Stores are unable to sell professional wax with ingredients like the ones I use in the salon. I also take a lot of precautions with your skin before and after the waxing as well as use an educated method of the removal process. As I always advise, certain topical ingredients could cause your skin to lift during waxing, like acne products, retinol, prescription Retin-A, steroids, certain exfoliants, and an Accutane history. Even store-bought waxes “made for sensitive skin” are not made for these conditions.
If you are accustomed to eyebrow tinting,
pull out your Osmosis eyebrow gel or pencil and use that. Eyebrow powder or eyeshadow will also temporarily provide some cover. If you just have a stray grey brow hair or two, tap off most of the mascara onto a tissue and tap a bit onto those stray greys! No one will ever know the difference!
I know you may be missing your eyelash tinting too. For the time being, DO use only mascara for those eyelashes.
Please do NOT attempt to tint your own eyelashes and eyebrows. You can cause serious injury if you get the dye in your eyes. Again, over the counter ingredients do not compare with my professional salon products.
