How to extend the “life” of a painted henna tattoo
How much your drawn tattoo will hold, largely depends on following recommendations:
Before draw a tattoo, make sure to peel the skin and carry out the depilation.
Clean and smooth skin is the first rule for making your tattoo last as long as possible.
After drawing, try not to bathe in salt water, and in water treatments avoid soap and various scrubs.
Try to reduce the physical load so that the tattoo doesn’t start to come off due to heavy sweating.
Note that the most persistent areas of the body under the tattoo are wrist, neck (back), ankle. Tattoos drawn on the chest, neck (front) or abdomen wash much faster.
If you can influence the choice of ingredients when painting henna, make sure you mix: natural henna, ground coffee beans or black tea, lavender butter, sugar. Such a temporary tattoo can last up to 1 month.
After applying the image, be sure to grease the tattoo with sesame or almond oil.
Fulfilling all these items, you will be able to admire the temporary tattoo much longer than you expect.
