Tips to make your Permanent make-up last longer.

Permanent makeup is a great way to enhance your natural beauty without the hassle of daily makeup application. However, as the name suggests, permanent makeup can fade over time, especially if not properly cared for. Here are some tips on how to make your permanent makeup last longer:

  1. Follow aftercare instructions: After your permanent makeup procedure, your artist will provide you with aftercare instructions. These instructions are crucial for the healing process and to ensure that the pigment sets properly. Be sure to follow these instructions carefully, including avoiding water, sun exposure, and certain skincare products during the healing period.

  2. Protect from the sun: Exposure to the sun's UV rays can cause permanent makeup to fade faster. To prevent this, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to the treated area daily, even on cloudy days. Additionally, wear a hat or use an umbrella to shade the area when outdoors.

  3. Avoid exfoliation: Exfoliating the treated area can cause the pigment to fade faster. Avoid using abrasive skincare products, such as scrubs, and be gentle when cleansing the area.

  4. Moisturize: Keeping the treated area moisturized can help prolong the life of your permanent makeup. Use a gentle, fragrance-free moisturizer daily to prevent the area from drying out and flaking.

  5. Touch-ups: Over time, permanent makeup will naturally fade. Touch-up appointments are recommended every 1-2 years to keep the pigment looking fresh and vibrant. Your artist can assess the color and shape of your permanent makeup and make any necessary adjustments during these appointments.

  6. Avoid chemicals: Chemicals found in certain skincare products, such as retinol and alpha-hydroxy acids, can cause permanent makeup to fade faster. Avoid using these products in the treated area or around the eyes.

In conclusion, following aftercare instructions, protecting from the sun, avoiding exfoliation, moisturizing, scheduling touch-up appointments, and avoiding chemicals are all important steps in making your permanent makeup last longer. By taking these steps, you can enjoy the benefits of permanent makeup for years to come
