how to heal your tattoo with bepanthen cream
STEP 1: Remove the bandage 2-4 hours after getting tattooed, have a hot shower and wash your tattoo with clean hands and a mild soap. Gently wash away any ointment, dried blood or plasma and completely clean the area. Once clean lightly pat with a clean towel and air dry for ½ hour to 1 hour.
STEP 2: With clean hands, apply a thin layer of Bepanthen cream, rub the cream in gently 2-3 times a day, some people react differently too creams so if you feel like Bepanthen isn’t working well for you please contact the studio.
Showers twice a day are recommended during the healing period.
Avoid saunas, spas, baths and pools while healing, basically do not do anything that involves your tattoo being soaked in water, showers are fine.
Keep your new tattoo out of the sun, this is very important, getting your tattoo sunburnt while healing will damage your tattoo and skin and fade your tattoo. Once healed try to keep it out of the sun as much as possible to avoid fading and if you are in the sun with your healed tattoo make sure you use a strong sunblock.
Your tattoo should take from 1-2 ½ weeks to heal, while it’s healing it will start to lightly flake and peel resembling sunburn peeling, except the skin flakes to have some ink pigment on them. This is normal and doesn’t mean your tattoos are falling off, do not pick or scratch at this scab or help it fall off as it may cause your tattoo to bleed which could result in pigment loss.
Do not shave, wax or exfoliate the area until your tattoo is fully healed.
