Do you have naturally dry skin? Prone to flaking, tiny pores, noticeable peach fuzz?
“Wet” Healing for Dry Skin Types
Dry skin types will often find the wet healing method to be most advantageous while oily skin types will find that the dry healing method will give them the best outcome. Dry skin does not produce enough natural oils so the area may become irritated, cracked, and scaly before the pigment has a chance to settle. By keeping the area supple with the ink or lines will stay sharp and you will experience less discomfort.
Items you will need for immediately after the procedure:
Gold Dial antibacterial soap (in the pump)
Bottled or distilled water
Avoid getting anything on the brows, including water, except for cleansing as directed. Starting immediately after the procedure use a CLEAN fingertip to cover with a THIN veil of castor oil, grape oil, or babassu oil any time the area feels tight or dry. This is very important to minimize scabbing and allow for better pigment retention!
Day 1 Cleansing: Right before bed, gently wash your brows with Dial antibacterial soap. Use room temperature water to lightly wet your brows. Pump a small amount of soap onto your fingertips and make suds. You should no longer feel the soap, just the bubbles. Gently pat the bubbles on your brows for about 10 seconds. Splash rinse and pat dry with a tissue. Wait 10 minutes and apply a small amount of oil by tapping it on the brows with a clean fingertip. At night cover with 2 small rectangles of plastic wrap and do you your best to sleep on your back.
Day 2-14: Repeat the washing procedure, VERY gently every morning and night. Apply aftercare throughout the day as needed, when brows feel dry. Do not overuse aftercare. Do not pick or rub the brows. The scabs/flakes must fall off on their own or you will risk removing the color and possibly scarring.
