Almost everyone has got tattoos today, but how to take good care of them?
My sweeties, today, and thanks to a lovely collaboration with La Roche-Posay*, I’ll be talking about a very special beauty-topic: tattoos and how to take care of them in the sun. I feel like nobody is ever talking about that on the beauty blogs, but I feel it’s an important topic and that it was about time somebody took the time to write about it.
Actually, do you even have tattoos? Perhaps a saying or a symbol, a number or some artwork? No matter what it is, do you ever think about how dangerous UVA- and UVB-radition can be on your tattoos and how that could make them fade over time? Because that will be what I’ll be talking about now.
I wanted to be a tattoo artist when I was younger.
As you all know, I have got many tattoos on my arms and legs. Some of them, for example the ones on my legs, are training-tattoos because when I was younger, I wanted to become a tattoo artist. So I needed to practice and this practice, you can still see on my legs, hehe. Anyway, especially the arms and legs are quite often in the sun when it’s warm outside. But when I was younger, I never thought about protecting my tattoos from the sun. I basically didn’t care at all, like all young people.
Today, I think differently about this problem. Nowadays, I know how important good tattoo-care over time is and that you really need to protect your tattoos from dangerous UV-radiation. After all, you want your tattoos to stay as beautiful and colourful as they were on day one for a long time, right?
Nowaways, I know how important good tattoo-care really is.
And for that, I now have the new La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 with SPF 50*, which is a really well-working wound care product and now comes with UV-protection, too. Basically, it’s the famous La Roche-Posay Cicaplast, which supports regeneration of the skin, but now, it also incorporates UV protection with the integrated SPF 50.
And like this, the product is perfect for new, but also existing tattoos, since the ingredient Panthenol offers really good care for the skin and also, Madecassoside and Mangan make the surface of the skin really soft and prevent the fading of a tattoo’s form and colour.
But one thing is important: La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 with SPF 50 isn’t a sunscreen product and shouldn’t be used as such, either. But for especially light-sensitive parts of the skin, like existing tattoos, the product is super helpful and works best!
