If you’ve recently gotten your eyebrows tinted, you’re probably eager to show off your new, fuller-looking brows. However, it’s important to follow proper aftercare in order to ensure the longevity and vibrancy of your tint.
Proper Brow Tint Aftercare
What to Expect After Brow Tinting
After your brow tinting treatment, it’s normal for the colour to look its most vibrant and intense, as there is still tint residue on the skin at this point. Once you have washed your brows for the first time, the tint on the skin will wash away and just the tint on the brows hairs will remain.
It’s also important to avoid getting your brows wet immediately after your treatment, as this can cause the tint to run or fade.
How to Care for Your Brow tint
To help ensure that your brow tint lasts as long as possible and looks its best, here are some tips for proper aftercare:
- Avoid Touching or Rubbing Your Brows: For the first 24 hours after your treatment, it’s best to avoid touching or rubbing your brows. This can cause the tint to smudge or transfer onto your skin.
- Keep Your Brows Dry: As mentioned, it’s important to avoid getting your brows wet for at least 24 hours after your treatment. After this time, you can resume your normal skincare and cleansing routine, but be sure to pat your brows dry rather than rubbing them.
- Use a Gentle Cleanser: When cleansing your face, be sure to use a gentle cleanser that won’t irritate your skin or strip away the tint. Avoid using products that contain exfoliating ingredients, such as alpha-hydroxy acids, for the first few days after your treatment.
- Apply Sunscreen: To protect your skin and keep your brow tint looking its best, be sure to apply sunscreen to your face daily. Look for a broad-spectrum formula with an SPF of 30 or higher.
- Avoid Using Oil-Based Products: Oil-based products, such as makeup removers or heavy creams, can cause the tint to fade or run. If possible, avoid using these products on or near your brows, or use a gentler alternative. We offer a product called Fashion Lash which is a great oil-free option for keeping your brows hydrated, and in turn will extend the longevity of your tint, without fading the colour!
Brow tinting is a quick and easy way to enhance the look of your brows, but proper aftercare is essential to ensure the best results. By following these tips and recommendations, you can keep your brows looking their best and enjoy the benefits of your tint for as long as possible.
