Can I put face cream on my new tattoo?
You were very careful selecting your design, the right artist, and where to place your permanent tattoo on your body. Now the most important part begins – the healing process.
Improper tattoo healing care can lead to faded or damaged tattoos, infection or even ugly permanent scarring. Newly tattooed skin needs proper care and treatment to reduce the discomfort and irritation from inflamed and itchy skin. Along with avoiding sunlight and swimming, keeping your tattoo clean and well moisturized is crucial to ensuring a properly healed, beautiful tattoo...
Tattoo healing lotions are a popular method to maintain moist skin. However, these lotions tend to be thin, mostly water, and contain very little if any oils. They lack lasting protection for the skin that a cream can provide.
Because of the higher oil content in a cream, it will remain on the surface of the skin longer, provide more lasting protection, and prevent moisture loss. This is very important since the tattoo is essentially a cut in the skin.
My Nourishing Face Cream has become a favorite healing cream for our tattoo lovers. It has aloe which calms the drying and itching that comes with the healing process. The tamanu in my Nourishing Face Cream helps to relieve and heal any burning sensation. Applying just a small amount creates a moistness and suppleness to the skin.
It is critical to moisturize your tattoo no less than least twice daily. For the best healing results, carry the cream with you so that throughout the day, if any itching or soreness occurs, you can apply it immediately for relief and continued healing.
My Nourishing Face Cream contains no perfume or chemicals. It will soothe your skin without your skin feeling greasy. This is one of the features that makes it the best cream you can put on your skin.
My Nourishing Face Cream is also what my friends and family use for mild sunburn. It immediately works to soothe burned, tender skin. I recommend you reapply as needed when the burn pain flares up.
Of course it is a fantastic moisturizing face cream – hence the name. Enjoy its may uses!
