Piercing aftercare: Top tips to take care of your piercings

Apr 13, 2021 15:32 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Body piercings are not new to us, people have been getting pierced for centuries now. However fancy and cool this trend might seem, it definitely needs some great after care.

Piercing aftercare is important because pierced skin is extremely susceptible to infections which can lead to a lot of skin problems. 

After the piercing is done make sure you keep the pierced area clean. Wash that area with soap and water or saline solution twice a day. Apply a small layer of petroleum jelly or Vitamin E oil as it will protect the pierced area from bacteria.

The healing process is very delicate and can take months. So make sure you don’t dress up in something that would hurt your piercing by tugging on it. To prevent the piercing from closing, rotate the earrings gently while the skin is still wet.

Piercings are a very common practice but you still need to take good and consistent care of them to make sure you avoid infection, tissue damage, or losing the piercing altogether.

Be gentle with your piercings and enjoy your new fashion statement!
