You should thank your local grocery store – it literally built you into the person you are.
Think about it: most of the cells of your body are replaced in days, months, or a few years. And what are they replaced with?
Food. Food you buy from your local grocery store. The food literally turns into you.
I bring this interesting thought up to help you understand just how powerful foodborne chemicals can be in altering your body. And yes, that includes removal of skin tattoo ink.
In fact not only is there a way to do so at your grocery store, there are several different ways, using different ingredients to do the same job. Here are just a few of those methods
The salabrasion technique uses a mixture of water and granular salts, along with light sanding, to literally wipe the tattoo away using micro-friction.
Remember that salts are microscopic crystals, a fact obvious to tiny insects, but forgotten by large human beings. They have the same effect when applied to the skin in the correct way. No tool is right for everyone but the Salabrasion technique is one of the first I turn to when a tattoo removal client wishes to do a full removal in less than a month.
Aloe vera and yogurt
What if I told you that you could remove a tattoo and actually nourish the skin around it at the same time? You’d probably think I was trying to pull a fast one.
But applying aloe vera and yogurt in a specific formula, 3 to 4 times a day, has been shown to naturally exfoliate tattoos. This alongside providing vitamin E and other skin healthy nutrients directly to the skin. The aloe vera method is great for women and anyone with sensitive skin.
The sand powder method
Now we’re getting a bit rougher. Sand powder is irritating to the skin, so I don’t recommend this method to clients who have young or gentle skin. But for those willing to deal with the mild irritation for several weeks, this is one of the most effective and expedient natural removal methods there is.
Like the other methods discussed, sand powder is applied directly to the skin surface after a careful antibacterial wash and drying. The best way to apply the sand powder is using a soft wash cloth or towel soaked in warm water. Sponges also work for this.
The sand powder will act as a deep exfoliating agent, speeding up the skin cell rejuvenation process and pulling the deep layers of the skin, along with the ink and bedded, to the surface where it is then simply wiped away.
