You made it through the engagement, and Now it’s time to get into the big day beauty regime routine. 

It’s is vital to add the following routine to your wedding checklist, and it may need to start a year before your big day.

1. Skin

To avoid many skin conditions, it is important to Manage Stress: most inflammatory diseases can be stress-related, including eczema, psoriasis, breakouts etc. As Stress weakens the immune system, chorionic inflammation worsens.

Start having a proper skincare consultation, regular facial such as peel, microdermabrasion, oxygenation and detoxifying treatment to improve your skin complexion at least six months before your wedding to have your dream- skin goal.

2. Consider Laser Hair Removal

It is the best excuse to treat yourself to laser hair removal. It will be so worth it when shaving your underarms and legs is the last thing to think. It would help if you planned it 12 to 18 months before the wedding. 

3. Carbon, Peel treatment and anti-wrinkle injections 

If you plan to have any of the above treatment plans, visit your practitioner at least 6-9 months before your big day. 

4. Exfoliate 

As Dead cells accumulate on the skin, they interfere with light reflection, giving it a dull appearance. Regular exfoliation combined with a nourishing and softening mask and massage. Removes dead cells to improve radiance. 

Having regular exfoliation once a month till one week before the wedding is recommended.

Hammam treatment at Elley Spa is one of the recommended exfoliation treatments to remove dead cells and improve skin conditions; also, it makes you feel relaxed and rejuvenated after.

What is microblading?

Microblading is a cosmetic procedure that inserts pigment under your skin using a needle or an electric machine with a needle or needles attached to it. It’s also sometimes known as feathering or micro-stroking.

Microblading aims to give you well-defined brows that look natural without the hassle of daily makeup application. Microblading has been around for at least 25 years in Asia and has been growing in popularity in the United States and Europe.

Once applied, microblading pigment does fade. How long your microblading results last will depend on your skin type, lifestyle, and how often you get touch-ups.

How long does microblading last?

The effects of microblading last anywhere between 18 and 30 months. Once pigment from the procedure begins to noticeably fade, you’ll need to go back to your practitioner for a touch-up application. Touch-ups can be necessary every six months or every year, depending on your skin type and preferred look.

Microblading touch-ups are similar to getting root touch-ups for your hair. If you go when your microblading first starts fading, you can simply have the colour filled in. But if you wait longer than your practitioner recommends, you may have to have the whole microblading procedure done over again on both of your eyebrows. This is time-intensive and much more expensive than a touch-up application.

How long does microblading last on oily skin?

If you have oily skin, you’re still a candidate for microblading. But the results might not last as long as they would on other skin types. High amounts of sebum, or oil, being secreted from your skin can make it more difficult for pigment to adhere and stay in your skin. Speak to your aesthetician about any concerns you have about your skin type and how long you can expect your results to last.

How long does microblading take to heal?

Microblading takes 10 to 14 days to heal as the pigment settles into its shape. During this process, your skin will be sensitive. The skin on your eyebrows will eventually scab and flake off. The area will be red and tender to the touch at first.

While your new brow shape is healing, don’t pick or scratch the area. This introduces germs that could become trapped under your skin and cause an infection. Picking at flakes may also cause the color of your brows to fade more quickly.

During this healing period, you should avoid all forms of moisture on your brows. This includes excessive sweating from working out and getting them wet in the shower or pool.

Precautions and risks

If you’re considering a microblading procedure, you should take note of several risks.

Once the procedure is complete, your eyebrows will have the same colour and shape until the colour fades — which can take 18 months or more. Have an in-depth consultation with your practitioner that includes reviewing their portfolio and having them sketch a trial shape onto your face so you can preview the finished product.
