• NO makeup or skincare product directly on or around your eyebrow areas

• NO work out or activities that involve excessive sweating

• DO NOT wash your eyebrow tattoos, showers after the first 24 hours are fine but don’t make a point to wash them and always blot dry your eyebrows when wet.

• NO skincare products above the cheekbones.

• Avoid any skincare product containing retinol, AHA, vitamins A, C and E agents.

• Avoid sun exposure, wearing a hat will help.

• NO tanning bed, sauna, or swimming.

• DO NOT touch the eyebrow with unclean hands or better do not touch at all.
