Microblading: Eyebrows that LOOK NATURAL, FEEL NATURAL!

Cinderella Bridez Team

 Beautiful eyes are incomplete without aligned and beautiful eyebrows. Isn't it? Here is an impressive way you can have those shaped and prominent eyebrows above your eyes if you are missing them naturally. This interesting cosmetic way of styling up your eyebrows is called Microblading. It's sounding like "blades effect"; but you don't have to worry much as this beautifying technique is milder to no pain feel. If you have very less or no eyebrows or deformed eyebrows, then Microblading is one easy and efficient permanent cosmetic transformation you should go for to get those beautifully shaped eyebrows naturally.

Microblading Exactly Is:
It is permanent makeup technique, which camouflage the missing eyebrows by applying fine deposits of tattoo pigments on the eyebrows making the natural look. Although it's a stimulated hair process. It is not like the traditional way of cosmetic tattooing and thus it's not painful. Microblading uses several tiny needles in a row to deposit dye into the dermal layer depending upon the depth and length of the eyebrow on the client's face. It doesn't involve machines or any other gauges. It can fully reconstruct look of a person to give an enhanced natural face. One thing to note is although the risk is minimum in this process still, a pigment-patch test is recommended before implementing it for individuals who have any kind of skin sensitivities for their healthy dermis.
 Implementing Microblading:
Firstly the artist cleans the eye area and aligns the natural eyebrow along the forehead in accordance with the eyes. Then they show the set of brows suitable on the client's face type and it's only after client approval the artist implements the technique to decorate their eyebrows. The best part is there is no downtime of microblading. Microblading draws hair strokes that look natural and suits according to the color of skin and shape of the client’s face. In microblading extremely fine in diameter needles are grouped and aligned like a blade edge to mark the pigments on the skin. Microblading is not semi-permanent but yes it requires recommended periodic care and touch-ups to maintain the looks forever. It takes 2-3 hours of implementation and then a touch-up session after every 4-6 weeks is necessary. Although to minimize the discomfort a topical numbing cream or liquid anesthetic is applied. Microblading lasts for 2-3 years depending on the skin types (which may vary also with touch-ups, water used on brows and cosmetic-types used during the healing time) but the difference is minimal. As part of the healing process, the color will fade by up to 40%, and then eyebrows will continue to be dark though slight scabbing is noticed. It takes approximately 7-14 days to heal and about 1 month for the color to fully set in. The color is very light right after the two weeks of healing, which will automatically give you the natural shade of your eyebrows.
 What's Next after Microblading?
·      As a matter of fact, after any cosmetic transformation (even with minimum risk and complication) there are some post care tips for the person. Similarly, with microblading, some of the caring instructions must be followed by the customer/client.
·      Apply a healing balm after the procedure is complete. After 2 hours wipe the balm with dry tissue and re-apply it on the eyebrow area.
·      Apply this healing balm at least for next 5-7 days once in the morning and evening time of a day.
·      Don't over apply it, as it may reduce the crisp color effect of the microblade eyebrows.
·      Try to avoid water on the eyebrow area while cleaning your face or during bathing for at least 10-14 days. Use it in minimum quantity if required.
·      Don't apply makeup for a minimum of 10 days on the eyebrows as it may cause infections. Only apply healing balm.
·      Don't consume alcohol, aspirin/ibuprofen or any vitamins tablets for next 24 hours after implementing microblading.
·      If you feel itchy on the brow area, only apply healing cream. Don't do any scratching, scrubbing or other experiments.

Why Drink 8 Glasses a Day?

Cinderella Bridez Team

Truth: Water is essential for good health but the amount you need varies from person to person... Check out this article from MayoClinic Below on why. 

How much water should you drink each day? It's a simple question with no easy answers. Studies have produced varying recommendations over the years, but in truth, your water needs depend on many factors, including your health, how active you are and where you live.

Although no single formula fits everyone, knowing more about your body's need for fluids will help you estimate how much water to drink each day.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF WATER

Water is your body's principal chemical component and makes up about 60 percent of your body weight. Every system in your body depends on water. For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells, and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues.

Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you don't have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. Even mild dehydration can drain your energy and make you tired

What about the advice to drink 8 glasses a day?

Everyone has heard the advice, "Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day." That's about 1.9 liters, which isn't that different from the Institute of Medicine recommendations. Although the "8 by 8" rule isn't supported by hard evidence, it remains popular because it's easy to remember. Just keep in mind that the rule should be reframed as: "Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid a day," because all fluids count toward the daily total.

Factors that influence water needs

You may need to modify your total fluid intake depending on how active you are, the climate you live in, your health status, and if you're pregnant or breast-feeding.

  • Exercise. If you exercise or engage in any activity that makes you sweat, you need to drink extra water to compensate for the fluid loss. An extra 1.5 to 2.5 cups (400 to 600 milliliters) of water should suffice for short bouts of exercise, but intense exercise lasting more than an hour (for example, running a marathon) requires more fluid intake. How much additional fluid you need depends on how much you sweat during exercise, and the duration and type of exercise.
  • Intense exercise. During long bouts of intense exercise, it's best to use a sports drink that contains sodium, as this will help replace sodium lost in sweat and reduce the chances of developing hyponatremia, which can be life-threatening. Also, continue to replace fluids after you're finished exercising.
  • Environment. Hot or humid weather can make you sweat and requires additional intake of fluid. Heated indoor air also can cause your skin to lose moisture during wintertime. Further, altitudes greater than 8,200 feet (2,500 meters) may trigger increased urination and more rapid breathing, which use up more of your fluid reserves.
  • Illnesses or health conditions. When you have fever, vomiting or diarrhea, your body loses additional fluids. In these cases, you should drink more water. In some cases, your doctor may recommend oral rehydration solutions, such as Gatorade, Powerade or CeraLyte. You may also need increased fluid intake if you develop certain conditions, including bladder infections or urinary tract stones. On the other hand, some conditions, such as heart failure and some types of kidney, liver and adrenal diseases, may impair excretion of water and even require that you limit your fluid intake.
  • Pregnancy or breast-feeding. Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding need additional fluids to stay hydrated. Large amounts of fluid are used especially when nursing. The Institute of Medicine recommends that pregnant women drink about 10 cups (2.3 liters) of fluids daily and women who breast-feed consume about 13 cups (3.1 liters ) of fluids a day.

Beyond the tap: Other sources of water

You don't need to rely only on what you drink to meet your fluid needs. What you eat also provides a significant portion of your fluid needs. On average, food provides about 20 percent of total water intake. For example, many fruits and vegetables, such as watermelon and spinach, are 90 percent or more water by weight.

In addition, beverages such as milk and juice are composed mostly of water. Even beer, wine and caffeinated beverages — such as coffee, tea or soda — can contribute, but these should not be a major portion of your daily total fluid intake. Water is still your best bet because it's calorie-free, inexpensive and readily available.

Staying safely hydrated

Generally, if you drink enough fluid so that you rarely feel thirsty and your urine is colorless or light yellow — and measures about 6.3 cups (1.5 liters) or more a day if you were to keep track — your fluid intake is probably adequate. If you're concerned about your fluid intake or have health issues, check with your doctor or a registered dietitian. He or she can help you determine the amount of water that's right for you.

To ward off dehydration and make sure your body has the fluids it needs, make water your beverage of choice. It's also a good idea to:

  • Drink a glass of water or other calorie-free or low-calorie beverage with each meal and between each meal
  • Drink water before, during and after exercise

Although uncommon, it is possible to drink too much water. When your kidneys are unable to excrete the excess water, the electrolyte (mineral) content of the blood is diluted, resulting in low sodium levels in the blood, a condition called hyponatremia. Endurance athletes, such as marathon runners who drink large amounts of water, are at higher risk of hyponatremia. In general, though, drinking too much water is rare in healthy adults who eat an average American diet.

Wedding Day Planning

To ensure an absolutely gorgeous you, adhere to the following beauty tips:

  • Contract a professional makeup artist that is experienced in applying light reflective makeup that enhances your natural beauty.  Your photos and video will display a radiant and innate you.
  • Request a trial before your main event(s).  You deserve the look of your dreams!  Your makeup artist’s goal is to serve you to get that accomplished and properly planned out.
  • With makeup, more is NOT better…brighter is NOT lighter.  A professional will know which of your native features to enhance as well as those that you may want to conceal for a flawless appearance.
  • A matte look is always appropriate for events with a lot of photography and ensures a durable cosmetic application.  
  • The make-up brand chosen must be designed for longevity and performance.  You want to remain radiant throughout your affair.
  • Ask someone in your wedding party to assist you in carrying a pressed powder and lip color for touch-ups.  You will be luminous from beginning to “happily ever after”.

Daily Goals

  • A balanced diet and plenty of water (8 glasses/day) consumption will aide in maintaining healthy and hydrated skin.
  • Daily cleansing, toning and moisturizing routine is a must.  Wash your face in the morning and night to eliminate makeup, extra oils, pollution and harsh particles from the environment.  The toner gives your skin what it needs to reveal a fresh, matte finish prepping and controlling oil; boosting your skin’s ability to stay perfectly balanced throughout the day.  Utilize a moisturizer with at least SPF 15.  Remember that oil and moisture and two different things so even if you have oily skin, you still need to moisturize.  If you use a product that can moisturize and block sunrays you are succeeding! 
  • Do not sleep with makeup on!  Makeup can clog your pores.  Remove your makeup daily thoroughly to prevent breakouts. 
  • Rest!  The average person needs approximately 8 hours of sleep every day.  This process’ purpose is to rejuvenate your body and your skin – the largest organ in your body!  Your skin can look pale, dull and be prone to more breakouts when you do not sleep sufficiently.
