Fact #1: Scar tissue is more prone to sun damage than the rest of your skin. The incisions made by Microblading are considered wounds. If you expose your Microblading (fresh or healed) to the sun, you allow a chance for sun rays to permanently discolor your brows.
Fact #2: Over a period of time, the sun’s UV rays will break down the ink in your brow tattoo. To prevent discoloration or fading, it’s crucial to wear sunscreen.
Fact #3: Your skin will THANK YOU for protecting it with sunscreen. If you are someone who uses anti-aging or acne ingredients such as Vitamin C, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, AHAs/BHAs, it’s crucial that you wear your sunscreen during the daytime. If you skip this step, you may notice that your skin will become extra sensitive, dry, red, or even more prone to breakouts.
Cool, now that we got the fun facts out the way, I would like to recommend you to my latest holy grail — Neogen’s Day-Light Protection Airy Sunscreen!
O m g, you guys.
It truly is one of the best (if not the best) sunscreens I have ever tested.
(Please note: this is a chemical sunscreen, so if you are allergic or pregnant, I would check with your doctor for the green light before using this product!)
- It meets my minimum SPF30+ criteria (this one’s a SPF50).
- It’s super light, barely a fragrance there. Carries a slight hint of soothing citrus scent.
- It melts almost immediately on the skin with no white cast OR pilling.
- It almost mattifies my skin and doesn’t leave an oily film at all.
If you’ve been on the market for a new sunscreen, I highly recommend testing this one out! I got mine from Soko Glam 🙂
Happy skincare ya’ll,
