Tea tree oil is one of the most effective natural remedies for tattoos. It contains terpinen-4-ol, which has potent antimicrobial properties that help reduce inflammation and keep your tattoo healing quickly and smoothly.
Tattoos need to be kept dry at all times, not only to prevent bacteria growth but also to promote quick skin healing. If you don’t keep your new tattoo dry, it can become moist and irritated, leading to a slower healing process.
Aside from keeping your tattoo dry, it is important to use a moisturizer to keep your skin healthy and soft during the healing process. Coconut oil is an effective moisturizer that can be used to help keep your tattoo hydrated and looking its best.
Another great way to keep your tattoo moisturized is to use lavender essential oil on it. Lavender has incredible healing properties and is known for its antioxidant, antiseptic, and antibiotic properties that will assist your tattoo in the healing process.
In addition to using lavender oil on your tattoo, you can also add a drop or two of peppermint essential oil to it. This will help stop and kill the bacterium that causes nasty infections like Staphylococcus aureus.
After washing your tattoo and patting it dry, apply a thin layer of Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Skin Ointment. It is best to apply it 3-4 times a day in small amounts and always with clean hands.
