Tweezers are mostly used on the face, around the nipple area and other hard to reach spots. Nevertheless, the most common issue that women encounter when plucking is ingrown hairs and different skin irritations. It is recommended to sterilize the tweezers before using them and to apply appropriate lotions afterwards.
