tattoo care gamechangers | SKIN STORIES®
SKIN STORIES® offers the best care you can give your tattoos. With a range of tattoo care products backed by years of research and on-the-ground testing, the label produces the highest-quality options on the market for tattoo aftercare, sun protection, daily skin care and more. Now, SKIN STORIES® is furthering their range to include the new Tattoo Hydro Gel — a cooling gel that keeps your tattoos radiant while providing intensive moisture for 24 hours.
Tattooing as a practice can be traced back thousands of years. But until recently, little was truly known about caring for tattooed skin. Without specialised care, tattoos can fade quickly, losing their definition and vibrancy — and while tattoo artists and skin care experts would trade tips about how to prevent this change, scant research was dedicated to the topic.
SKIN STORIES® sought to change this. The team behind SKIN STORIES® amassed decades of information and practice, working with dermatologists, tattoo artists and more to determine exactly what tattooed skin needs to stay looking and feeling fresh and beautiful. Guiding them in this process were the skin care experts of their parent company, Beiersdorf — top players in the field since 1882.
The result of all this effort is the series SKIN STORIES® proudly offers on their webshop today: a Sun Stick (14.95€) and Lotion (12.95€) to protect body art from fading due to sun damage; Defining Serum (9.95€) to strengthen the skin and keep tattoos looking precise; Rapid Repair Balm (9.95€) to support the regeneration of tattoos after piercing while relieving redness; Daily Lotion (9.95€) for everyday care — and the label’s newest addition, Tattoo Hydro Gel (6.99€), a fast-absorbing gel perfect for post-sun care.
As one might be able to infer from the SKIN STORIES® product line, sunlight can pose severe danger to tattooed skin. Not only can sun exposure cause colours to fade and linework to lose its definition, but it can also prove incredibly painful with lasting effects on both the tattoo and skin.
That’s why — just in time for summer — SKIN STORIES® has expanded its range to cover everything the sun can throw at you. The new Tattoo Hydro Gel joins original favourites like the label’s Sun Stick, which provides a precise applicator with over 50 SPF of protection, and the label’s classic Sun Lotion, which offers SPF 30 protection in a spreadable form. Once your time in the sun is done, the new Tattoo Hydro Gel makes for the perfect post-sun partner, offering a cooling sensation while enriching your skin with aloe vera.
The Tattoo Hydro Gel’s benefits extend beyond just post-sun care. The travel-ready gel offers expertly-developed InkGuard Technology, which consists of an active ingredient combination of Berryflux Vita (made from raspberry stem cells), panthenol and vitamin E, working together to provide lasting moisture. The gel is also devoid of environmentally harmful ingredients like microplastics, parabens and mineral oils.
The commitment of SKIN STORIES® to preserving the beauty of tattooed skin is truly unparalleled in the market today. Explore the full collection on the label’s online shop, and pick up the Tattoo Hydro Gel in the online store today for only 6.99€.
