Forget Botox, simply go threading!

Beauty/ Rebel/ Romantique

“I will try Botox if I see results”. True words from Parisian Fashion icon Ines de la Fressange. Let’s take a few leaves out of the French book on how to age gracefully without Botox and surgery and without desiring eternal youth.

A first easy, surgery-free lift for your face is to get your eyebrows shaped by threading – this simple beauty routine can take 10 years off your look!

Threading is the Indian art of shaping  eyebrows by plucking the hair out with a thread. This art is softer on the skin and lasts longer than plucking hair with a tweezer. This instant beauty lift is very common in the UK, where you can get this done conveniently in every drugstore during your lunch break.

We can only hope that France, Germany and other countries on the Continent, will soon follow with more beauticians and outlets offering threading for beautifully groomed eyebrows.

Below: This pic perfectly illustrates the lifting effect of a shaped eyebrow: Rebel’s left eyebrow is threaded, the right one is untreated.

Tip: Always ask the Indian ladies for naturally threaded eyebrows, don’t have them done too thinly, as this can have the opposite effect, and actually age you instead!  Ouch!
