Getting a new piercing is an exciting way to express your style and personality. However, it's crucial to follow proper cleaning techniques to ensure a safe and healthy healing process. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to take care of your new piercings.

1. Clean with Saline Solution

After getting a new piercing, it's essential to clean it with a saline solution. Saline solution helps to keep the area clean and prevent infection. Prepare a saline solution by mixing 1/4 teaspoon of non-iodized sea salt with 8 ounces of warm distilled water. Soak a clean cotton ball in the solution and gently clean around the piercing.

2. Avoid Touching with Dirty Hands

Always wash your hands thoroughly with antibacterial soap before touching your new piercing. Avoid touching the piercing with dirty hands as it can introduce bacteria and increase the risk of infection.

3. Avoid Harsh Cleaning Products

Avoid using harsh cleaning products such as alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, or strong soaps on your new piercing. These can irritate the skin and delay the healing process. Stick to saline solution or a gentle piercing aftercare solution recommended by your piercer.

4. Don't Remove the Jewelry Too Early

It's important to keep the initial jewelry in place for the recommended healing period. Removing the jewelry too early can lead to the closing of the piercing or cause complications. Consult with your piercer about the appropriate time to change the jewelry.

5. Be Gentle and Patience

Healing takes time, so it's important to be patient and gentle with your new piercing. Avoid sleeping on the piercing, excessive touching, or playing with the jewelry. Follow a consistent cleaning routine and allow the piercing to heal naturally.
