It’s slightly sad that summer is ending, but it’s also a relief. Bring on the pumpkin spice, the Halloween decor, the cool(er) nights, and a decrease in the scorching temperatures we’ve endured for months.
Average temperatures above 90 degrees for three months? Yes, we’re ready for fall.
A lesser-known bonus to cooling temperatures and the change in seasons is that it’s the perfect season for microblading. Microblading healing is easier in fall and winter, making it easier for you to follow microblading aftercare instructions.
If you’re already well familiar with the process, skip on down to find out more about why getting microblading in fall and winter is the ideal time.
WHAT IS MICROBLADING AND WHY IS MICROBLADING HEALING IMPORTANT?
Microblading uses microneedles formed into various blade sizes. These microneedles are able to deposit pigment into the layers of your skin in order to create a new and natural brow shape.
A microblading artist will match the pigment to the color of your hair (or to whatever color you prefer your brows to be). The needles slice into the superficial layers of your skin to deposit the pigment. They use specific strokes and techniques to mimic your natural brow hair; this creates a brow that appears natural, full, and shaped to perfection.
A key part of getting that end result you want is in the microblading healing process. Ignoring or failing to follow the aftercare instructions provided to you will cause your end result to be affected. And while you can follow the instructions at any time of the year, having your microblading done in the fall or winter makes it naturally easier for your body to give you the result you want.
Let’s look at three reasons why that is.
REASON 1: COOLER WEATHER MEANS LESS SWEAT
One of the key stipulations during the microblading healing process is that you limit any sweating, extra oil, or excessive heat. This is because sweat and heat can re-open the pores in your skin. Sweating after microblading pushes the pigment (that was so painstakingly placed during the microblading appointment) back out of your skin, which will change your end result.
As you can imagine, especially here in Houston, it’s hard to avoid sweating and heat during the spring and summer. That’s why fall and winter are perfect for microblading healing; the cooler weather means less sweat and heat, which helps with the healing process.
REASON 2: LESS DIRECT SUNLIGHT
Direct sunlight and tanning beds can cause the pigment used during microblading treatment to change in appearance and/or color. As with the heat, direct sunlight is hard to avoid in the spring and summer.
While there’s still sunlight during the fall and winter, the rays are less intense than other seasons. This makes it easier for you to heal from your microblading treatment.
REASON 3: FEWER “DANGEROUS” ACTIVITIES
Now, with this, we don’t really mean that there are fewer truly dangerous activities. You can skydive and bungee jump and skateboard any day of the year.
What we mean is that there are fewer activities that are dangerous for your brows. Most microblading aftercare instructions ask that you refrain from heavy exercise, swimming, and tanning while you’re in the healing period after getting your brows done.
Surely people still swim, tan, and spend hours outside in the fall and winter, but it’s definitely rarer than during the spring and summertime. Fall and winter will allow you to rest and heal easier than in the spring and summer.
You won’t have to skip a fun summertime trip to the beach, the river or the lake, when you get your brows done in the summer!
MICROBLADING HEALING IS IDEAL FOR FALL AND WINTER!
Now that fall is upon us, you’re in the perfect season for microblading. Microblading in fall and winter makes the healing process easier, which means you’re more likely to get the perfect results that you want!
