Nowadays, most people are going for microblading to groom their eyebrows. It is a hassle-free cosmetic procedure that is loved by all. My clients often ask me if is it possible to get tan with microbladed eyebrows.

So, in this article, I will share with you some useful ways to protect your microbladed eyebrows in a tanning bed and keep them as beautiful as they are.

Ways to Protect Microbladed Eyebrows in a Tanning Bed

By following the tips shared below you can easily protect your microbladed eyebrows while tanning and prevent them from fading away.

Wait for Some Time

Being an expert I suggest my clients wait until their eyebrows are fully healed after microblading.

You should wait for at least 1 or 2 weeks before going out in the sun after the procedure.

Your microbladed eyebrows can fade way faster if directly exposed to UV rays. Also, wait for some time before getting in a tanning bed after microblading.

Use Sunscreen

After two weeks of your microblading procedure, you can go for tanning out or in a tanning bed.

But, make sure you use sunscreen on your eyebrows to avoid direct exposure to UV rays.

Use a sunscreen formulated for the face with SPF 35 or more. Before getting in a tanning bed take a small amount of sunscreen and apply it properly over your eyebrows.

Wear Sunglasses and a Hat

You need to take care of your microbladed eyebrows even after the tanning procedure to make them last longer without fading away.

Do remember to put on your sunglasses and hat before going out in the sun after your tanning session with microbladed eyebrows.

Also, re-apply some sunscreen to your eyebrows for that extra protection.

How Long Should You Wait Before Applying a Self-tanner Over Microbladed Eyebrows?

You can use spray tanner or other self-tanning products after your microbladed eyebrows have healed completely.

You need to be patient as the healing process might take longer i.e., from 2 weeks to a month.

Going for your tanning session without healing your microbladed eyebrows completely can make them fade away very fast.

An infection can also develop if you apply a self-tanner before the healing process is completed.

So, to get that gorgeous eyebrow even after tanning you, need to wait for the given period.


To protect your microbladed eyebrows from fading away fast you need to follow the right waiting period. Always use sunscreen with a higher SPF to avoid direct contact with UV rays.

So, to prevent your eyebrows from discoloring follow the effective tips shared above. This will help keep your microbladed eyebrows beautiful and long-lasting even after the tanning session.


  1. What Does Tanning Do to Microblading?

    You should avoid tanning before and after microblading your eyebrows. Going out in the sun or getting in a tanning bed for 10 days should be completely avoided. Sunburn, sweating or tanning can fade away the microbladed eyebrows. To avoid excess sweating do not go for a workout on the day of the procedure. The treated area can easily fade away if you sweat excessively as sweat contains salt.

  2. Can a Tanning Bed Be Used After Microblading?

    Before and after the microblading procedure you need to wait for at least 30 days before sun tanning or going for a tanning bed session. Your parlor will ask you for a reappointment if you visit with sunburn. Your microblading can quickly fade away as the tattoo pigment will also get exfoliated along with your skin.
