Beauty Therapy: Eye Treatments to Pamper Yourself With
Everybody’s drawn to the eyes. Whether we realise it or not, the eyes are that one feature that people see right away even before you speak. More often than not, it even shapes the rest of your face. How your eyebrows arc or your lashes flutter could instantly create a lasting impression.
It’s therefore just right to give it the right TLC it deserves. The next time you hit the beauty salon, add eye treatments to the list of beauty treatments to give your gorgeous self a brand new boost of confidence. It may be intimidating at first, but don’t worry, we’ve summed up the best eye treatments to pamper yourself, along with a little guide on what they are.
- Eyelash Tint
Let’s admit it. Mascara is not the most convenient makeup product. Putting it on takes some time, maintaining the look is quite exhausting (especially when it gets wet!), and having to remove it at the end of the day is just too much work. Luckily, eyelash tint can give you dark and full lashes for weeks without needing mascara.
It’s a semipermanent dye job for your lashes to darken and intensify their colour with permanent, cream-based dyes. This process is quick and easy, too. You just sit while the beautician applies the dye to your lashes as you keep your eyes closed for around 10 minutes.
- Eyebrow Tint
Similar to eyelash tint, this one enhances and intensifies the shade of your brows. When you go for eyebrow tinting, expect the beautician to apply semi-permanent dye over your brows. The process is essentially about enhancing your natural bows and takes about 10 to 15 minutes. The benefits of eyebrow tinting include fuller-looking brows, a defined brow shape, and smudge-proof brows for weeks.
- Eyebrow Wax
Messy eyebrows are now a thing of the past thanks to eyebrow waxing. It essentially means getting rid of stray brow hairs with a strip of wax. One reason why we love eyebrow waxing is that it doesn’t take a lot of time, especially when compared to plucking out each hair. The best part? Your skin could get smoother with this treatment since dead skin cells may be taken off during the procedure.
- Eyebrow Tint, Wax, and Shape
If you’ve never heard of the phrase “eyebrows on fleek,” you’ve probably been living under a rock, but don’t worry, it’s not too late to join the eyebrow game. Having perfect eyebrows can be done with the right brow treatments. You can find pamper packages that consist of eyebrow tinting, waxing, and shaping in one. Some of the many things we love about these three-in-one treatments are their practicality and value for money.
Bonus Tip: Since we’re on the topic of eye treatments, we suggest you step up your pampering game with an eye cream that helps reduce fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness. The Mayerling® Eye Cream brightens and smoothens the texture and fine lines around your eyes as it minimises the appearance of dark circles. It’s a great addition to your beauty treatments to fully treat your eyes!
Things To Do Before Your Eye Treatment
- Get a patch test 48 hours before your appointment. The skin surrounding your brows and lashes may react if you’re allergic, so your therapist will need to test the dye on a small patch on your skin.
- Remove all eye makeup to not only save time when you reach the salon but to also ensure your tint is longer-lasting. Likewise, make sure there’s no oily residue from skin products.
- If you’re wearing one, take out your contacts before your appointment. It’s advisable not to wear it for a few hours post-treatment too so as not to disrupt the eyes.
Keep in mind that the skin around the eyebrows is thin, making it more vulnerable to irritation. Be sure to rule out any possible allergies before choosing the treatment you want. When you’re ready for the treatment, communicate your desired outcome to your beautician. Mention your expected results so you two could exchange insights on the final look you want to achieve.
Most of all, have fun! These beauty treatments are meant to make you feel good about yourself. Enjoy giving your eyes the love they deserve and flaunt them!
