Waxing eyebrows, yourself, with honey and salt

When one takes upon one's self to do any kind of procedures in the perimeters of one's eyes, even in the locations of eyebrows, one must exercise extreme care, to be certain that one does not cause harm to one's eyes. One has done one's self a disservice if one, inadvertently injures one's eyes while trying to wax one's eyebrows. Having said this, we can turn our attention to waxing eyebrows using honey and salt.

I tend to use organic honey, expecting that the level of trace chemicals, from the greater environment in which the bees live, will be decreased. I like using Himalayan pink salt, for most purposes, including the waxing of eyebrows, because it is a very special source of quality salt. There are other salts, such as Dead Sea Salt, that I use for medicinal purposes, however.

I have spent more than two weeks contemplating the writing of this discourse, thinking about how I can "safely" advise readers on waxing their eyebrows, themselves, using honey and salt. I have decided not to give readers pictures of myself combining honey, salt and flower and mixing these substances to blend them well.

I would like for you, the reader, to visit a "place of business," a health food store, a place that sales beauty supplies or other source of information, to get "first-hand," face-to-face instruction on "how to apply a "wax" to one's eyebrows for success.

This will be some trouble, that is, the going and coming to a place of business, to meet someone face-to-face, who will give you this knowledge and instructions. It is worth the trouble, however.

Consider this, you can mess up your appearance, but applying too much wax, to the wrong area, removing too much hair from your eyebrows. You are after "a desired shape for you eyebrows," the one you want. This is not a "hit-and-miss" situation. You want to get it right, the first time, if you are going to do this. It takes time to grow hair back, so you do not want to get this wrong.

Okay, so much for the negative outcome that is possible from making mistakes.

We mentioned above that you need honey with water, salt, and flour. Blend this mixture well.

Step 1. Next, using a spoon, or other instrument that allows you to control what you are doing, apply the wax that you have made up correctly, to the hairs that you would like to remove.

Be extremely careful with this step, avoid areas of hair that you do not want to remove.

Step 2. Now, obtain an old cloth, a soft one preferred, and gently apply pressure to the wax, for about 15 minutes.

Step 3. After 15 minutes, quickly pull off the cloth, like you are yanking off a band-aid from a wound. It hurts when you try to go too slow and easy, so just yank it off, removing hairs with it.

Step 4. Now, find a clean cloth, dampen it with warm water, and gently press it onto the area where you applied the wax. In this way, you are decreasing the inflammation to the skin where the hair was removed.

Summary: You are done with the procedure of waxing your eyebrows using honey and salt.

Remember, do not leave the wax in place too long. Not longer than 15 minutes. Set a timer, if you have one, or an alarm clock, or you cell phone, for 15 minutes, to accurately measure your time.

Leaving the cloth, in place, over the wax mixture, for more than 15 minutes, will cause the cloth to stick tighter to the skin. This causes more pain when you yank it off.

Okay, good look as you prepare to wax, with honey and salt, for the first time. Remember, to get the help that I have advised you to seek out, if at all possible. Always seek out qualified help if you can get it. Qualified, meaning, someone who knows more about something than you do.

Take care.

Best regards,

Dr. Haddox
