How Can I Lighten My Tattooed Eyebrows?

By LeafTV Contributor

There are a lot of ways to create fuller looking brows: pencils, powders, gels, mascaras. For those who want to wake up with perfect brows every day, there's even tattooing or microblading. But sometimes the finished brows can look too dark or harsh even after the healing period is over. Retinol to the rescue! It contains vitamin A and increases the turnover of cells in the top layer of skin. Here's how to lighten up those brows.

How Can I Lighten My Tattooed Eyebrows?

Step 1

Wash your brows with soap and water, and let dry. Wait 30 minutes before applying retinol to help prevent stinging.

Step 2

Apply a thin layer of retinol cream over each tattooed brow. Go to bed and let the retinol do its work.

Step 3

Repeat every third night until your skin gets used to the retinol. Then start applying it every night until brows have been lightened to your desired shade.
