Even as announcement of the 21-day total lockdown sent people clamoring to grocery stores and supermarkets for some last-minute hoarding of essentials, the curfew stands to impact several services many urban Indians are used to. And while social media was full of tales of people wondering how they would go to the gym or when they would get to eat out at a restaurant again, some seemed bothered about an almost bizarre yet relatable concern - how to get their eyebrows done?

As the lockdown spread across countries, several women and men took to Twitter to reveal their sad eyebrow stories.

As the lockdown spread to India, Desi Twitter was also filled with such jokes.

However, some took to social media to call out the need to get eyebrows trimmed even in times of a pandemic.

While looking presentable is a great thing, is it really worth the risk at a time when a global pandemic has killed over 15,000 people? The obsession with eyebrows points to the preoccupation with beauty standards that continue to influence the thoughts and actions of people.

But will this lockdown bring about a new shift in beauty standards? With services and resources at a premium, forced isolation could indeed help shape more than just eyebrows.

Nevertheless, Twitter also came up with an alternate idea to have fun with eyebrows while in lockdown for 21 days. Just shave them off to make social distancing a success.
