I was just plucking my chin and neck eyebrows when I noticed two dark hairs growing out of my tear duct.

Is this normal? Do I pluck them ? I am a bit scared to go in there with my tweezers.

I normally get my chin and neck eyebrows threaded, clearly she can't thread these.

It will make your eyes water like billy-oh.
Good luck!
Careful now with the pointy ends of those tweezers!

You probably always had them tbh, but hair can coarsen and darken with age.

I have found a big, thick black hair curling out of my chin over the last year. It seems to have a life of its own, and grows at a crazy pace some nights...... It can appear fully formed overnight.

I have just googled and was reading some advice on line and then realized it was meant for dog groomers . That has done a lot for my confidence.

I get those black hairs, my DH is fascinated by my hair plucking routine as I find it mortifying when the lady threading my brows says " shall I do your chin and neck!

I've not heard of age-related tear duct hair TBH
I'd definitely to to an optician/MD/ophthalomogist (sp?)

I have them too! I remember someone at school taking a close up of me in A Level photography and calling me 'hairy eyes'!! Haha

I started taking 'hair and. Nail vitamins about a month ago and they've suddenly got even more lush (along with all my other hairy bits!! Hehe)

Shhh! Don't speak of them! Just pluck them and pretend it didn't happen, that's what I do. And as for the eyebrows growing out of my chin... I wouldn't mind if my eyebrows weren't thinning!

Oh the joy of ageing!

About a year or so ago I noticed that two dents/holes appeared on my inner eye rim and now a dark black hair grows out of each of them shock. I have to pluck them or they scratch my eye.

I get them every so often and just pluck them out carefully.

I have these too! Just on one eye. I hate plucking, the sting! The sneeze, the watery eyes!

Someone at work has the hairs in her tear duct. She goes to the opticians who remove them for her and apparently it's much quicker & less painful than when she's digging in to her own eye.

I have them but no way will I pluck them because a hundred more would probably grow back! I also have have hairs on my eyelids!! I hope my glasses hide all these weird things.

Very relieved that it is not just me, I did pluck them which did cause much eye watering but was not as difficult as I had imagined. I am very worried not that more will grow back, thanks Happiest!

I have this problem too. I use the eyebrow pen by Flawless it gets close enough and trims the hair to the root. Painless

How did this thread get revived after 6 years?! grin

You've all made me look just now. I don't think I have this problem just yet! I did pluck a lash out a time ago it was one of those that was hanging straight down. God, painful!
