I've been stupidly shaving off and plucking out the unwanted hair on my eyebrows and upper lip for years.
I get ingrown hair from time to time in these areas (used to not have any on my upper lip, but now I do). Because of that the skin between my brows has some scarring, and is severely dry and dull and seems to be perpetually flaky (my whole face seems to be perpetually flaky, actually, but that's another story). I don't really use makeup, but every once in awhile I need to apply a little between my brows to hide the ingrown hairs and scars, and it's nearly impossible to do this now because the makeup makes the dryness more visible. The outer edges of my lips get a little dry at times, too.
I am sure there is no way to reverse this damage, but is there something I can do to alleviate it? Any bit of advice is welcome, but I am particularly interested in homemade/organic/natural remedies. I have sensitive and acne-prone skin, by the way.
