Exfoliating your eyebrows is often forgotten during a beauty routine. That's a shame because it hardly takes any extra time, but it can result in more beautiful and well-groomed eyebrows! Also, freshly exfoliated eyebrows can ensure that you can enjoy Henna Brows longer. Below I tell you what other benefits there are! 

What is exfoliating anyway?

Before we begin, it is important to know what exfoliating actually means? The literal meaning of exfoliate is to remove the top skin cell layer, this can be done with a product that contains a coarse grain or a chemical substance that loosens the top skin layer from the skin. You can exfoliate both the face and body.

Benefits of exfoliating

While exfoliating, you remove dead skin cells. Especially under the eyebrows, dead skin cells are likely to remain. By exfoliating the eyebrows, you ensure that you get smooth skin under the eyebrows and more healthy looking skin. This has several benefits.

For starters, it can make sure you have less problems with ingrown hairs. One of the problems that causes ingrown hairs is the dead skin cell layer. The hair can' t penetrate the skin. By exfoliating your brows and skin at least once a week you make sure that the dead skin layer is removed, and this makes the ingrown hair come out easier. Henna Brows also stay on better because the dead skin cells have been removed. This allows henna to soak into your skin better.

Are you currently growing your eyebrow hairs? If so, in addition to using an eyebrow growth serum or eyebrow oil. It encourages hair growth and helps the process if you regularly exfoliate your eyebrows. This will ensure that the serum or oil can better soak into the skin.

Finally, applying your brow makeup will look better on exfoliated skin because the dead skin cells have been removed from the epidermis. This results in a healthy smooth skin. This allows the makeup to sit evenly on the skin. I think these are enough reasons to add exfoliating eyebrows to your weekly beauty routine. encourage hair growth.

Exfoliating products

There are millions of exfoliating products in the world. I understand that because of the vast choice, you may not know what the best product is for a healthy skin. The most important thing is that for exfoliating the eyebrows, you should not use an exfoliator with a coarse grain. This is because it is a more aggressive exfoliant for the skin and can cause you to lose the eyebrow hairs. To exfoliate the eyebrows, it is best to use a gel exfoliator. This is less stressful on your eyebrow hairs.

Supercilium Prep Peel Gel

We have developed an eyebrow peel especially for you. The Prep Peel Gel is a gentle exfoliator for the eyebrows and the area around them. The gel consists of 4% AHA. AHA or Alpha Hydroxy Acid is a sugary fruit that removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores. A perfectly cleansed skin promotes the longevity of eyebrow henna color and other eyebrow treatments. 


Brow Care


How do you exfoliate your eyebrows?

What exactly does an eyebrow exfoliation routine look like? First, make sure your eyebrows are properly cleansed and oil-free. You can do this with the Supercilium Pro Cleanser. Next, apply a pea size of the Prep Peel Gel to the eyebrows and brow area. Massage this into the eyebrows for 15 - 30 seconds using circular motions. Remove the Prep Peel Gel from the brows with a cotton pad and voila, it's that simple! You can easily add this routine to your beauty routine.

Important to know

We often get asked how often you should exfoliate your eyebrows. We recommend using the Prep Peel Gel no more than twice a week. If you do use it more often than twice a week, there is a good chance that your skin will become irritated and cause you to have hypersensitive skin. You should avoid this at all costs. The Prep Peel Gel is smart to use before a Henna Brows treatment. This ensures that the skin is in optimal condition and the henna can better absorb into your skin.

What if you do this after a Henna brow treatment? Then the chances are that you will remove the henna stain from the skin. This is an extreme waste for the results and longevity of the Henna Brows.

An important factor that many people forget but is hugely important: using an SPF for eyebrows. Why? Because your skin is more sensitive to outside influences after a peel. Also, after waxing and threading the eyebrows, the skin is more sensitive. To optimally protect your eyebrows, we have developed the Nourishing Defense Balm with SPF 30 that you can use after a Henna Brow treatment. It is also suitable for after PMU or eyebrow tattoos. The nourishing balm protects the skin from free radicals and offers protection against UVA and UVB rays and is also suitable for the most sensitive skin.
