It’s finally getting a little cooler, and with the welcome relief from Houston’s heat comes some helpful tips to care for skin during colder months.

If you’re undergoing tattoo removal treatment during the winter, it’s important to properly care for your treated skin.

  1. Keep the SPF applied. Just because it’s not hot outside doesn’t mean you can slack on sunscreen. Protecting your skin during tattoo removal is important to prevent scarring and ensure the removal process works.
  2. Stay moisturized. Your skin naturally dries out somewhat in the winter. It’s important to keep your skin moist for optimal results on treated skin. Apply lotion, stay hydrated and add a humidifier to your home.
  3. Take your vitamins. Keep your immune system supported with a healthy diet and supplements of Vitamins C, E, and D during the winter months. Less sun in the winter months can create a Vitamin D deficiency in many. These vitamins will boost your digestive and immune systems and support your overall health.
  4. Stay active and rested. It’s easy during the winter months to get caught up in hectic holiday schedules and sleep less or to spend more times indoors socializing than outdoors exercising. Keep your body healthy as you are undergoing laser tattoo removal by staying active, getting plenty of rest, and limited alcohol consumption to a reasonable amount. This will keep your system at its healthiest as your immune system removes the tattoo ink.

Following all of these steps are not only important for getting optimal tattoo removal results, but are helpful to creating a healthier lifestyle overall.
