If it’s a relatively light session i’ll use A&D for the first day or two so it doesn’t dry out too bad and then gradually switch to Aquaphor or regular lotion. I know people generally say to stay away from A&D but my skin dries out ridiculously fast so I need something thicker at the beginning of the process.
I bled a lot more than I usually do this time though, so scabbing was pretty much unavoidable :c I let those areas dry out a bit more than the others and overall i’m just trying to be careful with it. Luckily it’s not too bad.
I honestly don’t know, i’m just very happy out of nowhere! It’s more than likely due to the fact that i’ll be getting more tattoo work done soon which has always been a very therapeutic experience for me, so i’ll just go with that!
