Summer is practically here, which means the temperature is rising and the sun is shining. Microblading is a must-have beauty treatment, especially in the summer. With microblading, you can enjoy fierce and flawless eyebrows no matter how sweaty your skin gets or how many times you take a dip in the pool. However, with microblading, just like any other semi-permanent makeup procedure, there are some protocols to follow when it comes to sun exposure. Learn about sun exposure and microblading by reading on.
It is important to protect your skin from the sun. This is true year round, but especially in the summer when you’re spending more time outdoors. This is also especially true for individuals with microbladed eyebrows. If you don’t want your brows to wear or fade, and you want to protect your skin, you should take care of your microbladed eyebrows in the hot summer heat.
Aftercare is important with any beauty treatment, including microblading. The proper aftercare promises high quality results, and can also protect your skin. One week after you receive microblading, you should wear a good SPF on your brows. However, do not apply SPF, moisturizer, makeup, cleanser, soap, and so on onto your brows until after this seven day period is over. Doing so can cause the brows to fade, smudge, or become irritated. If you happen to go out into the sun before this seven day period is over, make sure to wear a hat to cover your brows from the direct sunlight. Also, be sure to avoid tanning and sun beds. This can be harmful to your skin during the healing process.
After the seven-day healing process, you can ease into summer activities, including outdoor exercises, swimming, spa days, and trips to the beach. However, be sure to apply a quality SPF to your brow area, as well as the rest of your skin.
