4 Semi-Permanent Makeup After Care

EYEBROW

Your eyebrows need to be gently blotted to remove excess body fluids to eliminate crusting. Make sure you wash your hair with your head tilted back to stop water running down your face. Nothing else should be applied during the first day after the procedure. For the first 24 hours after treatment, wipe your eyebrows with cooled boiled water on a cotton wool pad then pat them dry with a clean tissue. Clean the area 2 times daily (morning and night) with a gentle cleanser followed by your aftercare cream and continue for the next 7-14 days. Dispose of the micro brush/cotton tip immediately after each application. This keeps the area protected with a breathable barrier and supports healing. Make sure to wash your hands prior to touching the area.

EYELINER

Swelling differs with each individual. You may apply an ice pack to the area to reduce swelling and soothe the area and make sure you move the ice pack around, not leaving it too long in one area, in order to prevent frostbite. For the next 7 days, apply a thin layer of aftercare ointment daily. You can also use a warm, damp cotton pad to gently wipe the area. Do not use contact lenses, eye makeup, or mascara for 7 days post-procedure and any lash-enhancing products or fake lashes for 14 days post-procedure. New mascara has to be purchased but not to be used until at least 7 days after the procedure. Avoid swimming in pools for 5 days post-procedure, as bacteria and chemicals in the water may be irritating. Do not swim in the ocean for 14 days post-procedure as the saltwater will pull the pigment out. If your eyes feel itchy and irritated you may have a minor irritation to the aftercare ointment. You should discontinue all ointment, wash your eyes to remove the ointment and let it heal dry. If your eyes are red and emitting any white or yellow discharge, or very itchy, you may have a minor eye infection. In this case, rinse your eyes to remove the ointment and visit your pharmacist or doctor to request antibiotic eye drops. Eye infections are extremely rare but can happen, so always wash your hands when treating your eyes and apply a very tiny amount of aftercare ointment.

LIPS

After 2 hours and before you go to bed gently blot the area with a damp cotton wool pad to remove excess body fluids and tiny blood spots to eliminate crusting. You may also apply a cold compress or ice pack to the area to reduce swelling during the first 72 hours of healing; make sure you move the ice pack around, not leaving it too long in one area, in order to prevent frostbite. During the healing period, avoid wiping/ licking the lips. Apply the healing balm every hour whilst awake. Do not apply lipstick until after 7 days. It is possible that an allergic reaction to the ingredients of the lipstick may occur should you apply within this period. Be careful when eating spicy, salty or citrus foods; avoid them if possible. Drink through a straw to prevent contact with contaminates and washing off your healing balm and also be careful when brushing your teeth as toothpaste can pull out the pigment out of the lip vermilion.

LASHES(Extension & Lash Lift)

Eyelash adhesive actually takes 24 hours to completely cure and therefore, the first 24 hours are the most important time to ensure that your lashes will last.

  • Do not wet or rub your eyelashes – Exposing your new Lashes to any moisture such as steam, high humidity and water, will result in the lash glue over-curing and becoming brittle, and your extensions will fall off within a few days.
  • Do not apply cream around the eye – Clean them gently, as instructed by your lash technician and with a designated lash cleanser. Bodily oils that travel onto your extensions will break down adhesive if not removed by cleaning. Failure to clean your lashes will not only result in poor retention, but the build up of bacteria, and can lead to eye infections.
  • Do not wet or rub your eyelashes – Exposing your new extensions to any moisture such as steam, high humidity and water, will result in the lash glue over-curing and becoming brittle, and your extensions will fall off within a few days.
  • Do not pick or pull at your extensions. The adhesive, although safe to use, is very strong and picking or pulling will pull your natural lashes out.
  • Do not sleep on your face. Your extensions are delicate, so ‘face planting’ in your pillow will cause your extensions to fall out where they are being rubbed out in the night.
  • Do not apply mascara, Liquid or Gel Eyeliner – It will adhere to the extensions, cannot be safely cleansed off and will create a breeding ground for bacteria. If you ignore this rule then you may be charged for a removal and full set.
  • Comb or Brush your eyelashes upwards every day – To keep them looking neat, tidy and uniformed.
  • Do not sleep on your face – Your extensions are delicate, so ‘face planting’ in your pillow will cause your extensions to fall out where they are being rubbed out in the night.
  • Use Lashes nourishing mascara every day. Do not swim.

NOTE & TIPS– There is a very small risk of immediate or delayed allergic reaction to pigments, topical anaesthetic or aftercare cream. However allergic reactions are extremely rare. A negative sensitivity/allergy patch test does not guarantee that you will not have an allergic reaction during or after the procedure. I therefore do not offer a patch test unless requested by yourself in which case beauty artist need at least 2 weeks notice before the date of your treatment. If the aftercare is not followed correctly then the finished result may not be desirable and you may need additional treatments which will be at a further cost to yourself. Everyone’s skin is different and some people’s skin takes better to it than others. Infections and allergic reactions although very rare, can happen. To avoid infection please follow the aftercare instructions correctly. An allergic reaction response may include redness, severe itching, swelling, a rash, blistering, dryness or any other symptom associated with an allergy. If this happens, please contact your General Practitioner immediately.

All makeups in the treatment area should be avoided. Minimize workouts that involve a lot of sweating, sauna, facial massage and steaming (inhalation). In the next 30 days, please avoid sunbathing, solarium, light therapies, chemical peelings, fruit acids, microdermabrasion, creams that contain regeneration factors, laser treatments over the treated area because they can destroy the pigments and cause burns. Avoid the use of antibiotics and hormonal therapy that can lead to a faster pigment fading. Always protect the treatment area from the sun with SPF. No Scrubbing. Do not rub, wipe, or scratch area. Use patting motions only.Keep area clean. Blot or rinse off oozing. Soap/ cleansers may be used as long as they are not alcohol based and do not have anti-aging acids or acne acids in it. Some cleansing chemicals might burn or bleach. If you wouldn’t use a product on any other type of injury, don’t use it on the healing permanent makeup. Rinse and pat dry.Do not peel or pick at crust, this could cause pigment loss, scarring, and delayed healing.

September Korean Sheet Mask Haul

Korean face sheet masks are the gateway item into the world of Korean beauty and skincare. Acting as inexpensive mini facials, sheet masks give the skin intense hydration, suppleness, and brightening effects in less than half an hour! Sheet masks can range in functions, materials, and ingredients. However, the majority of sheet masks are typically made for brightening, moisturizing, acne control, pore care or anti-aging effects. Most cotton sheets are soaked in essences containing nourishing active ingredients ranging from tea tree for acne control and ceramide for moisture retention. The essence is kept from evaporating by the sheet mask which locks in all the moisture and protects it from being exposed to the air. With such close contact to the skin, the essence forces the antioxidants and vitamins to penetrate into the skin’s top layer more effectively than if the essence was applied without a protective barrier such as a sheet mask. Sheet masks originated from Japan and South Korea, known for their dedication on cosmetics and skin care. Today, sheet masks are widely popular in Asia as a whole. 

Quick How-To on Sheet masking

  1. Remove mask from the package.
  2. Unfold the sheet mask and place it on your face aligning the holes to your eyes, nose, and mouth. If there is any remaining essence left in the bag, pat the extra essence all over your neck, arms, elbows, knees, etc.
  3. Sit back and relax for 15-25 minutes.
  4. Peel off the mask and discard the sheet mask.
  5. Gently pat the essence into your face for maximum absorption.
  6. Moisturize afterwards to seal in all of the nutrients. But in general, the recommended routine is to cleanse, tone, sheet mask and then moisturize afterwards. 
Short Video how I use sheet mask

Here are some of my tips:

  • Look at your skin: Every face is different! So always pay attention to the condition of your skin and how it is feeling.
  • Look at the product: It may not be the frequency of masking that’s affecting your skin, but the actual mask you are putting on. It is the easiest way to try different masks and find the best ones for you.
  • Look at the environment: Depending on your location, climate, and travel schedule, you may need to decrease or increase your sheet mask frequency.
  •  Remember: do not leave a sheet mask on overnight! 

Thank you!

4 Tips of Using the Eye Makeup Removal the Right way!

The skin around the eyes is up to 10 times more delicate than the skin of the rest of your face and it’s important to take care the right way. Improper way of removing your eye makeup can lead to puffy eyes, more noticeable wrinkles, sagging skin!

Here’s a few things which you should not to do while removing eye makeup.

  1. DO NOT USE FACIAL CLEANSER ON EYES Using a facial cleanser on your eyes can have a drying effect. You should handle the skin around your eyes like a baby by using a well-balanced eye makeup remover such as Oil-Free Makeup Remover to prevent the area from drying.
  2. TO HAVE SUFFICIENT TIMING The best way to remove eye makeup is to use soaked cotton pads in Oil-Free Makeup Remover and keeping them over your lids and lashes for about 15 seconds to allow remover to dissolve the waterproof makeup before wiping.
  3. DO NOT RUB HARSHLY It can lead to redness and irritation around the eyes, and over time, the formation of fine lines. Remember to be gentle when removing your eye makeup.
  4. DO NOT USE THE COTTON PAD OVER AND OVER You’ll end up redepositing the makeup you just removed. First, use the full pad to wipe across your eye, and then fold the clean side in half. Now, fold the side in quarters so you can clean the leftovers without using your entire stack of cotton pads.

I recommend Mary Kay® Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover It gently removes eye makeup, including waterproof mascara, without tugging or pulling the delicate skin in the eye area. Formula does not leave skin feeling greasy and it clinically tested for skin irritancy and allergy. Suitable for contact lens wearers. Suitable for sensitive skin and sensitive eyes. Hypoallergenic, oil-free and ophthalmologist-tested.

($17) (P799)

I love Clinique products they are fragrance free and always dermatology tested. Clinique makeup remover cleaned my face thoroughly faster and easier. It suitable for all skin types.

Easy Makeup look for Virgo’s Girl

Virgo () is the sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac. It spans the 150-180th degree of the zodiac. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this area on average between August 23 and September 22, and the Sun transits the constellation of Virgo from approximately September 16 to October 30. Individuals born during these dates, depending on which system of astrology they subscribe to, may be called Virgos or Virgoans. The symbol of the maiden is based on Astraea. In Greek mythology, she was the last immortal to abandon Earth at the end of the Silver Age, when the gods fled to Olympus – hence the sign’s association with Earth.

Beauty picks products of July and review

Its been a month when Innisfree came to the Philippines and before that, I am already a user of K-beauty products including Face Shop, Missha, Tony Moly, Etude House, Nature Republic. And the favorites that I am consistently using are the Face shop and Missha though Missha brand is hard to find because they don’t have a physical store unlike others that you can easily find inside the mall. But I found one a small booth in landmark Makati and another option is to buy online.

The first-ever Innisfree’s physical store opens to the public last  November 28, 2018, and is located on the ground floor of SM Mall of Asia’s main mall.

I wanted to try the Innisfree moisturizer gel because I heard it is one of a good moisturizer in the Philippines. Since I run out of gel moisturizer that I’ve been using for 3 years I came up buying Innisfree as I wanted and I am overwhelmed that it is only P450 for 300ml. It contains 93% extract of Jeju organic aloe flesh Aloe gel-like flesh inside the leaves contains more amino acid and moisture than its leaves and any other parts of aloe, which helps soothes the skin damaged from UV rays and heat while providing intensive moisture to the skin.  Aloe Vitalizing Energy™ unique to the Innisfree Aloe line soothes the skin and strengthens the skin barrier to make it vibrant and feeling fresh. You can use it in all areas where intensive moisturization is required due to irritation by the external environments such as hair, face, arms, and legs to revitalize and energize the skin through deep moisturization.

How to use

Apply an appropriate amount to dry areas that need soothing, including hair, face, arms, and legs, and spread evenly for penetration as often as needed.

It’s very soothing, cooling and moisture. It is easily absorbed and leaves skin hydrated and smooth. It makes me feel so fresh. It was amazing and worth buying.

I also try the Innisfree My Lip And Cheek (Airy) 2. A feather-light airy texture with a soft, matte finish for your lips & cheeks! It has three different lip & cheek options but I choose Airy 2 because the color is more neutral to my skin. It is soft as jelly and as light as the air, it blends into my skin in a thin and smooth layer as if nothing has been applied. It has to be dub lightly from inner to outer part on both cheeks and lips. Using this lip and cheek airy I combined it with Innisfree My Eyeshadow (Matte) #52, A customizable eyeshadow collection completed according to your desired needs (silky yet matte). It brings out color on your eyes to the fullest, and with the silky texture, it glides smoothly, evenly onto the eyelids and lasts all day long. Easy to use, Easy to apply and no dust. It was really worth the effort and buying when I finally put everything together, this is finally something I can bring along with me for trips in my every day look, a neutral look, depending on my mood. I  created a video using Innisfree products and I want to share it. Feel free to write your comments about my look.

Charcoal Mask that you must try if you are prone to pimples

Clear Proof®
Deep Cleansing Charcoal Mask

The triple-action mask deeply cleanses the skin, immediately reduces shine and features an effective complex of botanical extracts to help clear the way to beautiful skin.

The mask is formulated with activated charcoal, an ingredient so powerful, it can bind up to double its weight in pore-clogging impurities. Think of it like a powerful magnet withdrawing dirt and debris from deep within pores. Plus, mineral clay ingredients, kaolin, and bentonite boost the mask’s absorbency. You’ll love how the mask soaks up excess oil to deliver a smooth, matte appearance.

If you suffer from problem skin, you may have experienced dark spots and lingering discoloration. Pimples mark. This multitasking mask was formulated to help with that too! Clear Proof® Deep-Cleansing Charcoal Mask contains honeysuckle and navy bean extracts shown to target the appearance of skin discoloration. It may sound illogical, but getting a little dirty can actually help deliver skin that’s deep-down clean.

Application Tips

  • Apply an even layer of the mask over clean skin.
  • Experience the benefits while it goes to work, transforming from a rich, creamy texture to a soft, matte finish as it dries down and absorbs skin impurities.
  • Leave on the skin for 10 to 20 minutes at a time.
  • The mask can be used two or three times a week.
  • Wear it as a full mask, or apply only to your T-zone where the skin is commonly oilier.

Key Ingredients

  • When charcoal goes through a special heating process, it becomes activated, making it more porous. Activated charcoal is known to absorb up to double its weight in impurities. The power of activated charcoal helps unclog pores.
  • Kaolin and Bentonite Clays: Studies show that people with problem skin produce more oil than people in a control group do. Skin also can become oilier with seasonal changes or other factors, making excess oil a common concern. Formulated with the absorbent power of kaolin and bentonite clays, this mask instantly absorbs excess oil and reduces shine while reducing the appearance of pores.
  • Honeysuckle and Navy Bean Extracts: Clear Proof® Deep-Cleansing Charcoal Mask contains honeysuckle and navy bean extracts shown to target the appearance of skin discoloration. Together, they’re a powerful ingredient combination designed to help you leave a troubled past behind and create a clearer-looking future. Additionally, during in vitro testing, each botanical extract was shown to impact factors that may help soothe skin.

How It Works

Even though the skin has a natural exfoliating process, sometimes this process doesn’t work as effectively as it should, so oil, bacteria and impurities get trapped inside pores. The Clear Proof® Deep-Cleansing Charcoal Mask helps remove the dirt and impurities that can contribute to problem skin and offers a gentle solution for supporting a clearer-looking complexion. The mask contains activated charcoal and mineral clay to absorb pore-clogging impurities and excess oil, taking skin beyond every day clean. As a result, your complexion looks clearer and healthier, and pores appear minimized.

Mix and Match Mary Kay®Clear Proof® products for a customized, personal plan for you.
