Do you Sneeze while you Tweeze?



Hi Friends,


Do you ever sneeze while you tweeze?  If so, you’re not alone.


The other day I was plucking my eyebrows and I couldn’t stop sneezing. I realized, this happens to me often while I’m tweezing.  After some research, I found the urge to sneeze while plucking your eyebrows is quite common.  The reason why?  Your facial nerves include something called the trigeminal, which has a branch that extends from the eyebrow down into the tip of your nose.  So, when you’re plucking your brows, the nerve is stimulated, causing you to sneeze, or at least, want to sneeze.


A tip to avoid this: While tweezing, press your finger anywhere against your eyebrow.  This apparently can short-circuit the wiring of the trigeminal nerve.


Pretty cool hey?  If you have a fun-fact you wish to share, email us at or leave us a comment below.


Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
