For many people, losing their hair, eyebrows and eyelashes during cancer treatment is one of the most emotionally taxing parts of the process. If your eyelashes and eyebrows have fallen out, you may feel that your face has lost some of its depth. As hard as this might feel, the loss will probably only be temporary, and it will last the duration of the treatment. Take heart that when the hairs do start to grow back, they only need to grow back by an inch to make a huge difference to the shape and definition of your face.
While you are waiting for the regrow to start, there are many solutions you can try to regain your glow.
YOUR BROW LINE
Choose a semi-greasy eyebrow pencil, in the colour closest to your hair or hair prosthesis. Use small touches, imitating the direction of hair growth, to avoid a line that is too sharp, which could harden the eyes.
To help you achieve a natural outline of your brow line, use a photo of yourself from before your treatment for inspiration. There are colouring stencils you can use to guide you, or even consider dermo-pigmentation. To discover the different options available, seek advice from a socio-esthetician and of course, always check with your oncologist.
