Are You Making This Simple Eyebrow Mistake?

If you're like us, applying moisturizer is pretty much a free-for-all. Especially when we're battling dry skin, we often tend to apply it all over our face in no particular fashion (unless we're feeling fancy enough to tackle Kylie Jenner's moisturizer brush method). Turns out, though, that letting our trusted moisturizer seep into our brows has been secretly sabotaging them this entire time, PopSugar recently reported.

Why is this, you ask? According to celebrity brow expert Sania Vucetaj, moisturizers, gels, sunscreens, and foundations cause hairs to fall out and prevent future brow growth. Yikes! Who knew this was happening all along?

We felt as though we'd been duped by our facial products after reading this, so we sought advice from "The BrowGal" Tonya Crooks (she touts celeb clients like Megan Fox and Molly Sims), who gave us a little hope, saying that in terms of the high-powered facial creams out there, you'd need to take them on a case-by-case basis depending on their ingredients, and that foundation is safe to use on the brow area. Phew!

Wondering about those brow serums and conditioners, then? Crooks says they should be the first and only thing placed on brow hairs so that they can truly be effective. Still not seeing growth? Brow guru Anastasia Soare says Latisse ($76) works wonders. But before swiping on a hair-growth product, be sure to speak with a doctor.

Psst! We recommend trying out Crooks' new Second Chance Brow Enhancement Serum ($95) for full, lush brows.
