Do watery eyes and sneezing uncontrollably ring any bells? No, we’re not talking about the dreaded hay fever, we’re talking about plucking or taming your brows! Science has finally has the answer to our problems!
Dr. Melanie Grossman, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Columbia University, says it could be the “trigeminal nerve.”
“This nerve connects the face to the brain and transmits sensations between them. It has three branches; the one worth talking about here is the ophthalmic branch, which supplies nerves to the cornea and iris, the forehead, parts of the sinus and mucous membranes in the nose, and to the skin of the eyelids, eyebrows, and nose.”
Which basically means that when eyebrow hair is plucked or pulled out, the nerve is being stimulated causing you to sneeze!
If this affects you, why not try pressing on to the area straight after you’ve plucked as it may keep the nerve in place. “theoretically, pressing on the eyebrow could block the signal and sneezing reflex.”
