The Beauty Bible: Cosmetic Dangers & How To Avoid…
We all know that the build up to your wedding day can be hugely stressful – especially when it comes to looking, and feeling perfect on your special day. However, it seems to be now more common than ever that brides are resorting to cosmetic surgery before their wedding, perhaps because of these impassable standards set by the media.
Not only is this a drastic approach to take before your wedding, but it can too, be dangerous. Long lasting damage from cosmetic procedures could in fact leave you feeling deflated and not ready to say “I Do” at all.
Below, we have some simple (non-permanent) tips to avoid some of the cosmetics dangers in the run up to your wedding. If you are seeking cosmetic procedures, then great, you may have found a treatment that works beautifully for you. However, we would advise when seeking cosmetic results, do shop around and find the highest trained beauticians to carry out procedures.
Your health and beauty is definitely not worth putting at risk, no matter how good the price may sound…
From eyebrow and lip liner tattooing to eyelash extensions; the industry of semi-permanent make-up is growing at a phenomenal rate. However, as thousands of women seek long lasting cosmetic solutions there has also been a rise in people suffering from serious allergic reactions and disappointing results.
Perfect brows and lip liner, an extra 10 minutes in bed and no mid-day top ups sounds pretty great – but in reality there can be a harsh price to pay for this beauty hack. The most common issue that many women face is aesthetic – problems such as uneven colour, bad design and discolouration are all regular disappointments women face when seeking an eyebrow tattoo treatment (otherwise known as, mircoblading).
Many people have problems with the wrong pigment being used, this can result in eyebrow or lip lines coming out the wrong colour – or even worse, lines being put totally in the wrong place. An alternative and much safer way of lining your lips is with Lord & Berry Ultimate Lip liner. It defines the outline of lips, giving you the perfect pout. The liner is enriched with Macadamia oil to make it easily blend-able too.
A more serious issue which can come from eyebrow and lip tattoos is the risk of infection such as syphilis, ‘Staph’ and lupus which are all medical issues which can be caused because of eyebrow tattoos. Allergic reactions to the dye itself are also very common and are something to be cautious of, especially if you suffer from sensitive skin or other allergic reactions.
Not all of us are blessed with natural Cara style brows (oh, how I wish I was), and turn to semi-permanent as a way of seeking bushier brows. However, this treatment can actually result in infection and the loss of your natural hairs.
Applying the Rubis Eyelash & Brow Anti-age Serum everyday for 30 days will help reverse the damage from eyebrow tattooing. The serum achieves this by stimulating brow growth with the specially formulated innovation which contains hyaluronic acid to reduce the thinning of brows – enhancing your natural arches without the needles and pain.
If drawing brows on is your issue then try drawing your eyebrows on with Know Cosmetics, No Bare Brows – this instantly fills brows with the build-able colour pencil and the small brush which ensures that you can create the perfect brow. Available in a universal shade means that it is suitable for hair colours so that everyone can get the perfect match.
Sticking lashes on can be tricky business, so, opting for semi-permanent lash extensions may seem like the perfect solution, however, there are many dangers that come with this procedure such as infection and allergic reactions. The glue used in this treatment is what normally causes an infection, as many of them actually contain formaldehyde. This can cause bacteria to stick to it and can cause fungal or viral infections.
Even those who aren’t allergic to formaldehyde can still be prone to other infections such as madarosis – an irritation which is caused from the strong glue that is used.
Another risk of eyelash extensions is that it can cause traction alopecia. This is where the lashes fall out because of the long-term damage that has been caused to the hair follicles and tension that has been placed on the hair shaft. Eyelash extensions can also cause loss of eyelashes, in a similar way to alopecia on the scalp but causing lashes to fall out. Lash extensions use medical grade glue to attach individual hairs to the root of your natural lashes. Using alternative methods to promote a natural eyelash growth, and that work with the hair follicles will in turn give you healthier, thicker and longer lashes for safer and longer-lasting results.
An alternative and safer way to improve eyelash diameter is by using Rubis Eyelash & Brow Anti-age Serum, the panthenol and biotinoyl GHK rich formula stimulates new growth from deep in the hair follicles. The revolutionary serum also helps to improve the thickness and strength – with proven studies to show that after 30 days application lash length was increased by up to 43% and lash diameter by up to 40%.
