Top Tips on How to Take Care of Your Skin
It is important to develop good skin habits when you are young. This will help maintain good skin even while you are getting older. 
Healthy skin reflects a healthy lifestyle. Be sure to make good skin cleaning habits part of your daily life.

Caring for the Skin

Here are the top techniques to maintain a glowing and beautiful skin:

Wash you face

It is crucial to wash your face to remove bacteria, dirt, and oil buildup that block the pores and make them bigger. When you wake up, washing your face is a must to remove oil and dirt. Then, you have to do it again before going to bed to remove all dirt accumulated on your face throughout the day. 
It is also recommended to wash your face after exercising or sweating out a lot. Choose a natural and gentle facial cleanser to avoid irritating your skin.

Get enough sleep

Adults need to get seven to nine hours of sleep every day to repair, restore, and rejuvenate the body and skin. Your system produces collagen as you snooze, making the skin look younger by maintaining its elasticity. Experts recommend following a consistent sleep schedule to teach your body when it is supposed to feel sleepy and when it needs to wake up.

Exfoliate your face

When exfoliating your face, you have to look for mild exfoliating ingredients such as AHA or alpha hydroxy acids. Natural fruit acids have AHA. What AHA does is removes dead skin cells gently without vigorous scrubbing. It also makes the skin more moisturized. 

Exercise regularly

Exercising helps in increasing blood flow. It helps your system absorb oxygen and remove free radicals in the skin. It also gives you better sleep and alleviates stress. Keep in mind to wash your face after an intense exercise. 

Use a moisturizer

Regardless of your skin type, you have to apply a moisturizer every day. Using a moisturizer is important to prevent having dry and flaky skin. It also helps in keeping your skin cells healthy and glowing. Moisturizers can also prevent the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It is recommended to use organic and quality skincare products to nourish your face.

Drink a lot of water

Water provides nourishment for the skin. If your skin is dehydrated, you can experience itchiness and dryness. It can also look dull, and you’ll likely notice fine lines forming. Dark areas around your nose and eyes are evident, too. 
Drinking coffee and alcohol causes skin dehydration. If you drink these a lot, it’s more important to drink water for glowing skin. Having enough sleep, exercising, and eating fruits and vegetables also help a lot in keeping your skin hydrated. 
Wear sunscreen

Skin ageing is mostly caused by the sun. So, exposure to too much sun can cause serious skin problems. This also makes the skin weaker to free radicals and dehydration. Sunscreens give a lot of protection to your skin against harmful sun rays. Applying this to your face and body is more important if you’ll stay out in the sun for a long time. It will also help to wear protective clothing and, if possible, limit being under the sun for long periods. 


Following good skincare habits can prevent early ageing and other skin issues. Depending on your skin type, you may opt for additional treatments and apply various medications if needed.

Micropigmentation Eyebrows - How Long Does It Last?
Here at Cambridge Micropigmentation Centre, we take great care in delivering the best quality semi-permanent makeup, scalp micropigmentation, and microblading. Our team are highly skilled professionals with an expert eye for detail. When you receive a treatment from us, we make sure that it is truly bespoke. We discuss with all clients in detail before every treatment to understand their desired outcome. We want to ensure that all our clients feel they are in safe hands and achieve a truly natural look. Today we want to focus on our Microblading Eyebrows Cambridge services, read on to find out more.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a type of semi-permanent tattoo used to enhance or create the appearance of a full eyebrow. The technique involves using a tiny blade to create hairlike strokes into the skin. The stoke will mimic the appearance of a strand of eyebrow hair. A natural-looking pigment that matches existing hair or skin tone can be applied to the incision. The incision is not deep and therefore, over time, the pigment will fade. This treatment is suitable for those experiencing hair loss or a reduction in density from over plucking. However, if you are someone who desires fuller brows for aesthetic purposes, this is also a suitable option.
Achieving the perfect brow
Eyebrows play a significant part in framing the face and enhancing our facial features. It is only when we lose our brows, or they thin out that we notice their importance. We want to help all our clients to achieve their perfect brow. Our permanent eyebrows Cambridge treatments are available to all clients. We train our team to take your facial features into consideration to create a brow shape that will suit you. We have a range of natural colour pigments to match a variety of hair tones, including powder effect eyebrows in Cambridge. The treatment can be painful, just like a tattoo, so we will apply a numbing solution to reduce the sensation.
How long does it last?
Because of the nature of the eyebrow tattoo Cambridge treatment, the results are semi-permanent. This is because the pigment is placed into the outer layer of the skin, unlike micropigmentation or a body tattoo, which is much deeper. The pigment we use can last anywhere between 1 to 3 years, but it may start fading after 1.5 years. To achieve a sense of permanence, we recommend you get a touch-up done whenever you see a faded appearance. This can work out a lot cheaper than waiting for the treatment to fully fade.
After your treatment is complete, you will have brows that will always look perfectly shaped and neat, and you will only need to brush the existing hair into place. The skin may scab or swell a bit after the treatment. We advise you to avoid picking any of the scabs, and the swelling will go down. Avoid using any make-up on the area until the skin is fully healed. Using skin exfoliating agents like retinol, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, AHA and BHAs over the brows may speed up fading.

What is the difference between permanent makeup and tattoo?
Here at Cambridge Micropigmentation Centre, although we specialise in SMP treatment (scalp micropigmentation) as a solution for hair loss, we also apply this skillset to our other field of work, permanent makeup (PMU). As part of this service, we offer permanent eyeliner and lipstick as well as Ombre brows and microblading for eyebrows from our Cambridge clinic. Today we will focus on the difference between permanent makeup and tattoo.

PMU Techniques

The fundamental difference between PMU and tattoos is in the technique of the service. In order to understand this, we need to think about the layers of the skin, which is made up of the epidermis (the top layer), the dermis (the middle layer, which includes connective tissue, hair follicles and sweat gland), and the hypodermis, which consists of connective tissue and fat. Tattoo ink is injected deep into the dermis, whilst the pigments used in PMU are injected into the epidermis. This is so that you benefit from having the permanency of the makeup, whilst not lasting a lifetime like tattoos, so that if you change your mind in later years, you can. This means that microblade eyebrows will last up to two years, eyeliner after one year, whilst lip blush can last up to five years.

Permanent Makeup Artists

Unlike tattoo artists, who usually become an artist full-time through an apprenticeship, PMU artists need to complete a course at a beauty school or certified training centre, where you may or may not need a degree in cosmetology. Training is necessary, but it doesn’t take long to become qualified, and often you will be trained in a number of treatments in order to offer your clients a comprehensive service.

The Tools of the Trade

Each application requires different types of equipment to carry out the treatment. Coil machines are commonly used, whilst it is rare for a rotary machine to be used for tattooing. Rotary machines are typically used with MPU due to their thin needles for optimum precision. The diameter of a tattoo needle is usually 0.3mm or 0.4mm, whilst MPU requires a needle between 0.18mm to 0.28mm.

Pigments Not Inks

When people get a tattoo, it is ink that is injected, whilst with MPU, we use pigments. These are made up from iron oxides, usually mixed with water and glycerine. There are more limited shades available due to the nature of the work, with black and brown pigments mostly used, with shades of pink for lip blush.

A Guide to Men’s Laser Hair Removal
Although it is commonly considered that women are the ones that desire a permanent solution to hair removal. Men are now discovering the benefits of laser removal as well. Other forms of removing that unwanted fuzz, although effective, can feel time-consuming and the results are often short-lived. You may also be someone who suffers from pseudofolliculitis or razor bumps that are often difficult to treat. Leaving you feeling frustrated and uncomfortable. A solution for all of this is our men’s laser hair removal treatment. At Cambridge Micropigmentation Centre, we will have you fuzz-free and smooth in a matter of weeks so you can finally ditch that razor or wax for good.

The Treatment

So, how does the treatment work? At our clinic, we use Xlase Plus Diode which is the worlds most advanced light treatment. The diode technology will release pulses of light energy into the skin, which will target the follicle and root. The innovative technology will destroy only the root and follicle, resulting in a permanent or significant reduction in growth. Multiple sessions are necessary to target the regrowth stage. Your body will have hair growing at all different stages of the growth cycle. This will enable us to treat every single one.

Our laser hair removal can treat many areas of the body, including:
  • Back
  • Shoulders
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Facial
  • Chest
  • Groin
And much more…

We can target sizeable areas of the body quickly, so if you choose to remove everything on your legs, it will be a pretty simple process.
Our laser hair removal treatment is suitable for all skin types (Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-VI) and can even be used on tanned skin. We can set the machine on lower pulse lengths and frequencies to prevent any epidermis damage for darker skin types and people with a tan.

What To Expect

For most who receive our men’s laser hair removal, the experience is not painful, but they do describe some discomfort. The sensation is usually of an elastic band flicking against the skin repeatedly, accompanied by a feeling of warmth. The Xlase machine is fitted with a cooling device that reduces the uncomfortable sensation. Everyone feels things differently. However, our feedback has informed us that in particularly sensitive areas, cooling has made a significant difference to the overall experience for our clients.


Depending on the individual, you may only require 3 sessions and others may need more. The laser is proven to deliver permanent results and is safe to use on all skin types and strand tones. For the best results, we recommend at least 3-5 sessions on the targeted area. The Xlase offers the shortest treatment time out there, so when you are looking for the “gold-standard” of this type of treatment, you can trust us to deliver. Over time, you may need a few top-up treatments for anything that was not targeted effectively. There is no recovery time, but our team will provide advice on how to take care of the treated areas.
