Why Do We Even Need Brows?

Above is an article from an article about celebrities without their eyebrows and what a difference it makes if they are simply just missing off of their faces!

More importantly than just looks there is a reason Eyebrows exist! They protect our eyes from moisture and light

Physically, eyebrows are there to help keep our eyes clean and clear. They move wetness from sweat and rain away from our eyes so we can maintain our sight. ... Eyebrows can also reduce the amount of light that gets into your eyes and keep dirt away from them too.

Facial expressions convey meaning and emotions in ways that are hard to fake, and the eyebrows exaggerate expressions. Even in cartoons, a simple line above the eyes is enough to denote anger, fear, or surprise in a face, and experiments have shown that we can recognise a familiar face more easily when the eyes are blanked out than when the eyebrows are.

Makes sense why we need them!
