Winter is good for a lot many things — hot drinks, writing books, doing snow sports… et al. Winter is also good for permanent makeup, as many artists and estheticians often point out. How, you wonder? Here’s how.
Read on to know if permanent makeup is a good idea in winter, and why that is so.
Permanent Makeup in Winter is a Great Idea. Period.
Here are 6 main reasons why:
- Healing is Better
Winter season is dry and cold, two conditions that you may feel are bad for your skin but actually aid in permanent makeup healing. The fact is, permanent makeup usually involves cuts in your skin that take some time to heal. This time may vary from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the size and depth of the cuts, as well as the location. But two things are damaging to this healing — humidity and heat. Sweating, water and anything remotely wet in the area may put your healing journey back. That is why winter is probably THE best season to get permanent makeup.
- Oily Skin Benefits
Women with oily skin often find it cumbersome to get permanent makeup. This is because the oils in their skin make it difficult for the pigment to retain in the skin. Heat and humidity stimulate more oils. But during winter, even women with oily skin end up with drier skin, which aids their healing from permanent makeup. And it also helps retain the pigment better in the initial days.
- It’s Non-Smudge
Winter is that time of the year when you often spend hours putting on makeup, only to have it smudged when you put on your favourite sweater or muffler or beanie. One swipe and hours of painstaking eyebrow work are ruined. Not with permanent makeup in place. If you get microblading in winter, then you won't need any topical makeup anymore. No scarf or beanie or sweater will smudge your perfect eyebrows. The same goes for permanent lip color, permanent eyeliner and eyelash extensions.
- Time-Saver for Busy Holidays
December is a busy month. In a happy, exciting way, of course. It’s the time of shopping, party planning, staycations and Christmas events. When you get permanent makeup in winter, you end up saving so much time every day. You can just do your bare minimum morning routine and rush out, only to look like you stepped off a glossy magazine. That’s how nicely permanent makeup enhances your features.
- Easy for Sporty Vacations
Since most of us want to plan sporty vacations, permanent makeup is a literal savior. Come hail or storm or rain, snowboarding or skiing, you will still look gorgeous zooming down those white slopes. And make heads turn even when you directly head for dinner!
- It’s the Holiday Season
All around the year, you may think about budgets and financial plans and those extra bills or savings. But the holiday season is one time of the year when you are in that headspace of pampering, even indulging yourself. While you scout sweet gifts for your loved ones, shouldn’t it also become a little about you? In essence, it is hence easy to spend on permanent makeup during winter. It is slightly expensive compared to your regular makeup. But think of it as an investment, a recurring gift of sorts to yourself. As permanent makeup lasts for about 1-2 years and only needs annual touch-ups, with almost zero maintenance.
