Maybe it was a spur of the moment decision with friends, or perhaps you designed it yourself. No matter how you came to own the stunning piece of art inked on your body, the fact is, you've got to make sure it stays protected while you're spending the afternoon at the beach. Consider a few of these tips for keeping your tattoo from fading in the sun.
For a total shield against damaging UV rays, try a product like Colorscience Sunforgettable SPF 30 Rock and Roller Ball that goes on lightweight over skin's most tender areas. Ideal for sensitive skin and featuring a zinc oxide and titanium dioxide blend that won't be absorbed by your epidermis, this micronized mineral powder protector will allow you to show off your gorgeous ink even after you've applied it.
Another way to keep your tattoo looking fresh is to moisturize regularly. Allure Magazine recommends a fragrance-free skin care product that will penetrate pores and give dry areas the vital dose of hydration needed to remain smooth and soft.
