Elke’s On Dr. Oz!

Well, no, not the Dr. Oz show, but on his beauty website. Have you seen? Elke gave her top tweezing tips in their latest post on Facial Hair Removal.

Plucking

Pros: Precise removal of hair that works best on stray whiskers and the eyebrow area. If you’re allergic to certain waxing ingredients, plucking is a better way to go, and since you’re pulling the hair out from the root, it slows down re-growth.

Cons: Plucking is time-consuming. It can be more painful for sensitive areas like the upper lip and the hair removal process is not as convenient for larger patches of hair.

How to: When tweezing the brows, hold the tip or slant against the skin the whole time, going the direction of hair growth, suggests Elke Von Freudenberg, a Manhattan-based celebrity eyebrow specialist who has worked with the likes of Kate Moss and Anjelica Huston.

“By keeping the tweezer against the skin, you lessen the ouch factor,” she says. Von Freudenberg also advises that your brows should start between the bridge of your nose and your tear duct—any more space than that will actually make your nose appear bigger.

What to look out for: Avoid dropping your tweezer, which will cause it to lose some of its spring and can chip the ends.

Try: Tweezerman slant tweezers, which come with a lifetime warranty—you can even mail it to them for free re-sharpening when your tweezers start to get dull.
