Protect Your Microblading From The Sun

Getting your brows tattooed this summer? Make sure you’re keeping them safe from the sun before AND after your appointment!

The Golden Rule: no direct sun exposure for 1 week prior + 2 weeks following!

You cannot receive brow tattoos if you are too tanned or sunburnt on your face. Even though we might feel beautiful with a tan, they are still *technically* sun damage + will impact your skin cells’ ability to implant and retain pigment! Any sunburns must be fully healed before that skin is safe to tattoo over. Be sure to wear SPF30 or higher any time you will be in direct sunlight for the 2-4 weeks before your brow session, and avoid direct sun exposure as much as possible in the week leading up to. Trust me- it's super disappointing for myself and the client if they can't be serviced that day because of overexposure to the sun!

Avoid using indoor tanning beds for at least 4 weeks before your appointment, and for 4 weeks following. And always, really!

For the first 2 weeks of your healing process, you will need to stay out of direct sun exposure and protect your brows with large sunglasses, hats, etc. During this time, you cannot apply any active ingredients onto your face (such as those found in SPF), as the skin is still an open wound. After those 2 weeks, I cannot encourage you enough to keep sun protection on your brow tattoo whenever possible! Like any tattoo, the UV rays from the sun can make microblading fade, discolor, or blur if not protected properly. I suggest a zinc-oxide based sunscreen of SPF30-50!
