What if you could have perfect looking eyebrows for the next 1-2 years? No more filling them in, no more trying to draw them on every day.
Just wake up and be ready to go. Microblading is a beauty trend that has suddenly grown in popularity in recent years. But for every great set of brows, there is a woman with less than stellar results.
Following the microblading safety and aftercare to the T is vital. Women should follow these five tips to ensure their new microblade brows heal and look fantastic.
1. Keep Them Clean
For the first ten days after your appointment, you need to do everything you can to keep your new brows clean. This is how you can avoid getting an infection.
Gently wash daily to remove bacteria and product build up. Don’t worry this will not pull pigment from your new brows. Be sure to not over-apply aftercare ointment, as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The product should be barely noticeable.
Make sure you take your shower carefully so that you don't stick your new brows under the stream of water. You'll also need to wash your hair carefully.
To be safe, carry a clean paper towel with you wherever you go. That way you can pat them dry if they do get moist.
2. Blotting Paper Is Your Friend
Make use of blotting paper with your new brows. Make sure you buy ones that are free of chemicals.
Use them throughout the day to blot away any excess oil. Normal skin will typically need blotting three times a day. While oily skin can need blotting up to six times a day.
3. Don't Use Makeup
You need to keep makeup away during your brow healing process. You need to wait at least ten days before wearing makeup in the area of your brows.
Remember microblading causes tiny cuts in the skin. You need to let your skin heal itself, so the pigment gets set in the skin.
Makeup can contaminate the cuts causing an infection. You can also cause the pigment to get removed when you wash your face to remove the makeup.
Since you are avoiding doing any of your typical skin care routine in your brow area, you may find your skin start to become dry. If this happens during the healing process, a small amount of Organic aloe vera, or rose water on the brow area will get rid of the dryness. If you are itchy and it feels intolerable, you can pick up a cream called Bactine at your local drugstore.
5. Avoid Sweating
This one should be obvious since we have already said to keep the skin dry. However, sweating is even more harmful to your new brows than getting them wet. Now the moisture is coming from within the skin. It will push the pigment out as you sweat.
With that being said, you should avoid any excesivr exercise, saunas, and steam rooms that will cause you to sweat in the ten days following your procedure.
Practice Proper Microblading Safety and Aftercare
With vigilant microblading safety and aftercare, anyone can have great looking brows. All it takes is being mindful of moisture and avoiding anything that could delay the skin's healing.
