  • Move jewelry up and down getting soap inside the pierced area.
  • Make sure to completely rinse all soap inside the pierced area after letting soak for several minutes.

CARE - SEA SALT AFTERCARE

  • Anti-bacterial soap will clean the piercing but provided sea salt aftercare is recommended to heal.
  • Mix the whole bag of sea salt provided in a 16.9 oz bottle of water (Poland spring) shake up the bottle. This is now your aftercare solution for the remainder of healing process. 
  • Clean you’r piercing every day with sea salt starting today. 
  • Pour the solution into a cup or shot glass, warm water up in microwave for about 10 - 15 seconds.
