Protecting Your Eyes 

Eyebrows play a very significant role in protecting your eyes from excessive moisture and light. They are essential for keeping your eyes clean at all times. Have you ever noticed how eyebrows grow outward and not inward? This is how they are able to move any wetness that you may experience after getting rained on. This helps you to maintain eyesight in any weather conditions. Moreover, they play a role in preventing dirt and light from entering your eyes. Overexposure to any of these can cause damage to your eyes. 


They Are Essential for Expressing Emotions 

If you have ever raised an eyebrow at someone as a sign of showing your skepticism, then you have most likely used your eyebrows to Express your emotions and to communicate. You can take it up a notch and raise two eyebrows to express your shock or surprise. 

Studies suggest that eyebrows are also essential for assisting with human recognition. It is estimated that the chances of recognizing someone when they do not have their eyebrows decrease by 45%. This has raised debates about whether eyebrows or the eyes are essential for facial recognition. So, think about that when you are thinking of shaving off your eyebrows. 


If you are having trouble with growing your eyebrows, you are not alone. Many people experience issues with growing out thicker eyebrows. If you would like to obtain the benefits that are mentioned above, you can use these simple home remedies to grow your eyebrows thicker. 

Coconut Oil. While the scientific research remains inconclusive, there is surprising popularity of this oil. It has been lauded for its benefits of maintaining healthy hair and skin for ages.

Tea Tree Oil. This oil has been used to stimulate eyebrow growth. You need to apply it overnight to get the best results. However, this oil can sting when exposed to cuts and wounds. Do a patch test before applying it on your eyebrows. 

Lavender Oil. This oil is best known for its calming and soothing effects especially to combat anxiety-related disorders. However, when it is applied topically, it can provide benefits such as hair growth in most people.


The Bottom Line 

Having eyebrows may seem like an insignificant part of your life. But it is an essential part of your body as much as other parts are. Taking care of your eyebrows ensures better care of your eyes. While plucking them may seem trendy, it is important to ensure that you still have the right amount to protect your eyes from debris and excess moisture. If you struggle with hair loss or other issues that may affect the growth of your eyebrows, you can use some of these home remedies that we have listed to grow thicker eyebrows.
