Top 5 Tips for Caring for and Maintaining Your Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup is becoming increasingly popular among individuals who are looking to enhance their natural beauty. However, if you have recently gotten a permanent makeup treatment, it is essential to understand how to take care of it to ensure it lasts longer and remains in its best condition. In this blog post, we will be discussing the top 5 tips for taking care of and maintaining your permanent makeup.

Allow proper healing time:

The first tip for taking care of your permanent makeup treatment is to allow it enough time to heal properly. After getting the treatment, you must avoid sweating for 4 days and  swimming for 10 days. You should also avoid direct sunlight and harsh exfoliants during the healing period.

Apply sunscreen:

Once the treated area has healed, it is essential to apply sunscreen regularly to protect the color from fading or discoloration. You should apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every two hours, if you are going to be spending time outdoors.

Avoid aggressive facials and beauty treatments:

To maintain your permanent makeup, you should avoid aggressive facials and other beauty treatments like chemical peels, laser treatments, or the like. These beauty treatments can cause the ink to fade and will leading to the need for a touch-up treatment. If you plan do a peel or laser regularly, we recommend planning it a couple of months before needing your permanent makeup refreshment.

Avoid excessive sweating:

Daily excessive sweating will cause permanent makeup to fade over time due to a combination of sweat and an increased metabolic rate. Excessive sweating (avid runners, personal trainers) will cause pigments to break down and fade, leading to a decline in the quality and longevity of permanent makeup. For these client’s touchup appointments may be a little more frequent than others.

Get regular touch-ups:

Permanent makeup does require maintenance after some time to maintain its optimal look. Frequent touch-ups can help to ensure your permanent makeup stays looking fresh and in the best condition. Your touch-up revisit will depend on how often you do or don’t do the above, your skin, and how you personally like to see your permanent makeup.

Permanent makeup can save you time and money in the long run, but it is crucial to take care of it properly. By following the tips outlined, you can maintain your permanent makeup’s optimal look and condition. Always remember to avoid harsh products and treatments, moisturize regularly, and get regular touch-ups. When in doubt, consult your permanent makeup artist for additional advice on how to take care of your unique permanent makeup treatment.
