4. It rejuvenates the skin
According to Dr. Bruce Fife, N.D., “There isn’t a skin condition that coconut oil can’t help. Whether the injury comes from a cut, scrape, burn, bruise, sprain or insect bite, the application of the oil to the injured site will speed healing and prevent scarring.”
Coconut oil effectively remedies dry or cracked skin and helps keep connective tissues strong and supple, thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines. Additionally, every time you bathe with soap and water, you wash off your skin’s natural protective layer, so at your cleanest you are also at your most vulnerable to infection. A protective layer of coconut oil is ideal to quickly replenish your body’s natural barrier and protect the tissue from outside contaminants.
5. A little goes a long way
Sometimes less is more and, whilst that might not be true for tattoos, the last thing you want is to go so over the top on the aftercare and accidentally end up doing more harm than good. The trick is gently and slowly with cleaning and moisturising your new tattoo. It can be tempting to wash it too roughly (it’s itchy, right, you want to rub it!), or to slap on the aftercare cream in layers, until your poor skin can’t breathe.
