Treat Yo'Self

Salt soaks

They're easy and effective

Twice a day for 5 minutes: Mix a 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt in a clean 8-ounce container of warm water then submerge your piercing. For more difficult areas, such as the nape of the neck, use sterile gauze to soak up the saltwater and gently create a compress against your healing piercing. After a soak, let the piercing air dry.

For new oral piercings: Rinse with alcohol free mouthwash after you eat, drink, or smoke with thee exception of drinking water. Rinse with warm saltwater morning and evening to speed up healing time.

Never rotate, turn, touch or play with your healing piercing

This will prolong healing time and increase the chance of infection.

Hydrate & Meditate

It is very important to be hydrated during the healing process of your new piercing.  According to mayoclinic.org, the average healthy adult male should drink about 3 liters of water a day, and the average healthy adult female should drink about 2.2 liters.  Adequate hydration will improve your skin's ability to repair itself while healing your new piercing. Meditation improves the immune system by decreasing stress and increasing happiness. A happy immune system means a fast healing piercing! Meditation can be applied everywhere and anywhere by simply focusing. A popular meditative practice is to focus on the breath and slow the exhale to inhale.
