9 Quick Beauty Treatments to Do on Your Lunch Break


2. Pluck Your Brows

This might not be as soothing and relaxing as a massage, but it can leave your face looking polished and rejuvenated. Plus, you will shape your face contour. All you need is a mirror and tweezers to revamp your brows. Chances are you won’t need more than ten minutes per brow.

If you have a private restroom or a cozy nook in your office, you can achieve this simple but effective beauty treatment on your lunch break. I always use cooling gel before the procedure; such a simple trick helps to avoid puffiness and redness.

If you don’t have one, look into your fridge – ice cubes will perfectly substitute cooling gel. When my eyebrows are chilled, I can proceed to the next step. My eyebrows are quite straight, so I usually shape them up a little.

Here I remember three simple tips: straight imagined line from the bottom of the nose to the inner eye corner will mark the beginning of the eyebrow. Then move the line to the eyeball – this is the highest point of the eyebrow.

Finally, move the line to the outer corner of your eyelid and you will get the ending of you eyebrow. Do not try to give your eyebrows extreme arch – it will make angry and irritated expression.

When I am done with plucking I smooth my eyebrows with a tiny mascara brush and add several strokes of a brown eyebrow shadows. My eyebrows are perfect!
