Microblading is a must-have procedure, especially during the summer months. Flawless brows are yours no matter how many dips in the ocean you take or how sweaty your skin gets!
Always apply a layer of SPF 30 to SPF 50 sunscreen on the eyebrows when exposed to the sun. Exposure to sunlight can cause color pigment to disappear faster.
It is so important that you protect your Permanent makeup or Microblading treatment (especially brows) from UVA or UVB. The harmful rays of the sun can dramatically fade the implanted pigment. Not only can it fade your permanent makeup, but it can change the color of your pigment over time.
Sunscreen offers protection from UVA and UVB, however sunscreen ingredients have the ability to deteriorate at a faster rate once exposed to sunlight, hence some radiation is able to penetrate the skin. Some sunscreen products offer no protection against UV-A radiation whatsoever. Products often contain a mixture of physical and chemical block ingredients
Sunblock works by preventing the Suns rays from reaching your skin – either by reflecting them away or ‘Nano technology’ (making molecules really small) some sun blocking ingredients are now invisible to the eye, so you don’t get that white ghost look. The main active ingredients in sunblock’s are titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.
