Getting a new tattoo is fun. It can, however, backfire if you don’t take proper care of the tattoo during healing. The fact you must understand about new tattoos is they are open wounds. If you don’t care for them properly, they are bound to get infected. Improper care can even cause the tattoo not to appear as great. The good thing is that there are numerous remedies you can use to ease a tattoo’s healing process. One of those remedies is emu blue.
As you may already know, emu blue is a product made of pure emu oil. The oil has been refined to eliminate toxins and other impurities. As a result of this refinement, this product is your perfect companion after getting a new tattoo. But why is emu oil so great in tattoo aftercare?
It has the right combination of oils
Since time immemorial, emus have been layered for their meat and fat. The fat is what is processed to create emu oil. The reason for its popularity is the high concentration of essential fatty acids. Emu oils contain Omega 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9. The body needs essential fatty acids, but it cannot create them on its own. Instead, we get them from the foods we eat. The benefit of these essential oils is that:
- They create a protective barrier on the skin
- It keeps the skin moisturized
- Helps with the generation of new skin cells
- Boosts the immune system
This combination makes emu oils the best remedy for new tattoos. You must, however, make sure you use the oil regularly on the tattooed area.
Absorbed by the skin easily
Emu oil is rich in Omega 9 (Oleic acid). Omega 9 hydrates the skin and penetrates deep through the skin layers. As a result, emu oil can be used as a carrier for transporting other nutrients or oils. You can, thus, combine this oil with your other tattoo-aftercare product to get the best results.
No synthetic additives
Do you have skin allergies? If you do, this oil will be perfect for you. Unlike other tattoo aftercare products that contain mineral oil and petrolatum, emu blue is completely natural. The oil does not block skin pores which means your skin will be able to breathe easily. It creates a breathable protective layer over the new tattoo.
Amazing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties
Last but not least, you should note that emu oils have amazing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This helps the skin to fight infections in the tattooed area. Omega 3 is a naturally occurring anti-inflammatory substance.
