Retin-A And Thicker Eyebrows: Is There A Connection?

If you suffer from skinny eyebrows, you are not alone. It's a problem many women seem to be stuck with for life. Maybe we have a simple solution. But first, let's look at how we all got here.

Over-plucking and too much waxing are usually at the root of too thin brows. But also, reaching menopause or undergoing chemotherapy treatment can leave one with eyebrows that never appear to grow back in.

Let's be honest, fuller brows are more appealing. And professional makeup artists will tell you that skinny eyebrows are more aging on a woman.

And to make matters worse, it takes forever for a single eyebrow hair to grow. You will have to wait for about 2 months for a plucked brow to grow back, or 64 days to be more precise. And one more little tidbit, the length of time can be longer if the brow hair or hairs you want to grow back in, are in their resting phase. At any given moment, 90% of the hair on our bodies is in a resting phase where it stops growing, falls out, and then starts growing again.

So, be very careful not to remove too much hair when grooming eyebrows, because the follicles can be permanently damaged and you're left with skinny brows.

Our simple solution?

Retin-A cream. Yes...the SAME prescription stuff you use on your face and neck to soften fine lines and wrinkles. We have been a Retin-A user for about 4 years now.

We used to avoid rubbing the cream onto our eyebrows, until about 3 months ago. We had read that Retin-A cream encouraged hair growth, so we thought we'd take a chance.

And although we don't have Brooke Shields brows, growth is occuring, and our eyebrows are slowly getting thicker! We don't have to struggle with a brow pencil for so long. We still draw in a few hairs, but our brows are much better than before.

Retin-A is not a miracle, but it has helped our skinny eyebrows start to look like average brows once again. And for that, we are grateful. If you're looking for a solution, give this a try, especially, if you are already a Retin-A user.

Great news!!!!!!!!!!! It worked for me, I accidentally over plucked my eyebrows 3 weeks ago and applied it onto the affected areas and also on some of my bald spots, which I never saw growth. After about 5 days, I began to see results pretty fast. Now I have pretty full brows :) Just going to apply it one more time to see if more grows hopefully.

I believe that this cream is able to stimulate the production of new cells and is able to unclog many clogged hair follicles, which inhibits the growth of hair. So in all, Retin-A 0.5% or 0.1% worked fantastically for me.

I should add that every night and morning after I applied the Retin-A, I used some white petroleum jelly [Personal care - Coconut Scented] (NOT VASELINE) and applied the product with a makeup brush.

Skin will peel almost unnoticeable, but all in all, you will be very happy with the end results. After 2 weeks! Good luck everyone <3
