I've been diligently applying eyelash serums for some time now, taking my average-length fringe to va-va-voom to lengths. And while I've been spreading the good word about the fluttery effects to anyone who'll listen, I've been sleeping on the fact that growth serums are also purported to help stimulate growth on brows.

When it comes to my arches, my personal opinion is: the bushier the better. Every morning, I swipe on some brow gel, but would love if I even had more strands to brush up (and I'm not quite ready for microblading... yet). This is where brow serums come in—they work to bestow you with even fuller, bushier brows, thanks to nourishing ingredients, such as peptides, that boost the hair above your eyeballs.

Joey Healy, celebrity stylist and eyebrow specialist, says serums are great for adding volume density. "Brow serums are for people who have overworked their brows, people who are not satisfied with their brows as they age, or people who feel their brows aren't living up to their full potential," he says. You just have to look for serums with the right hair-boosting ingredients. "Peptides are the active ingredient you should look for," says Healy. Dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD, echoes that peptides are the most important thing to look for, since they're "messengers that help stimulate activity of the hair follicles," he says. "And many brow serums contain skin conditioning and hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, which soften and plump the hair shafts themselves."
