If you, like me, have tattoos, you need a tattoo care system in place. Yes, you need to know how to care for a tattoo but you also don’t want that ink to fade. Which brings to my latest find, a true winner when it comes to ink-care.
I have a daily face regimen. After years of gentle encouragement from my wife, I settled on a face wash, a moisturizer, and an eye balm that I use every morning. While I can’t say for sure if they make me look younger, I can say that I enjoy the routine and feel proactive in caring for my appearance.
How To Care for a Tattoo
While worrying about my face is relatively new thing, getting tattooed is something I’ve been doing for over 20 years. And, despite a strong desire, I’ve never been able to form a habit of protecting my tattoos from regular sun exposure. Until now.
This is the perfect kit for caring for your tattoos. The subtle scent and smooth feel of the oil make it easy and enjoyable to put on. So much so that I’ve begun using it on other tattoos that don’t see the sun.
Being a fan of the Jack Black products already, I jumped at the chance to try the new Ink Boost Tattoo Care Kit. It includes the Sun Guard sunscreen and the MP 10 nourishing oil. Every day, after my face regimen, I apply the sunscreen to my forearms, let it absorb, and then apply a light layer of the oil. The oil-free sunscreen has an appropriate scent and feels think enough to actually protect my tattoos. The magic ingredient is the oil. One of the biggest barriers to forming the habit of protecting my tattoos was that I hated the greasy feeling of wearing sunscreen. Counterintuitively, applying oil after the sunscreen actually makes me feel less greasy.
I can say that I have found a product that helped me form a habit I’ve been struggling with for years. Good looks and tattoos will ultimately fade but the right routines with the right products make me feel better about it.
