Ear Piercing Aftercare: HOS Tips For Healthy Ear

Discover the ultimate guide to ear piercing aftercare! From cleaning routines to spotting infection signs, join HOS for a chic chat on keeping those new piercings fabulously healthy✨

Thinking about getting your ears pierced or curious about how to take care of them? Don't worry, lovely HOS Babes, the HOS team's got your back with this special blog just for you!

Let's dive into the world of ear piercing aftercare together—it's like chatting with your bestie about all things earrings, cleaning techniques, and those oh-so-fabulous fashion faux pas to avoid!

  1. Follow a Proper Cleaning Routine: So, you've taken the plunge and got those ears pierced—way to go! Now, let's keep them sparkling clean:
    • First things first, wash your hands like you're about to perform surgery (okay, maybe not that intense, but you get the idea).
    • Grab a gentle saline solution or a mild, fragrance-free soap to give those piercings some TLC twice a day.
    • And don't forget to give those earrings a little twist while cleaning—think of it as giving them a little dance party to keep things fresh!

  2. Avoid Touching or Changing Jewellery Too Soon: I know, I know—those shiny new earrings are just begging to be shown off, but hold your horses, darling! It's best to leave them be for a while:
    • Resist the urge to fiddle with or swap out your earrings too soon. Trust me, your ears will thank you later!
    • Depending on where you got pierced, you're looking at about 4 to 6 weeks for earlobe piercings and a bit longer for cartilage ones. Patience is key, my friend!

  3. Be Mindful of Irritants: Now, let's talk about those pesky irritants that can turn your ear party into a total buzzkill:
    • Say no to swimming in pools or hot tubs until those piercings are fully healed. Nobody wants a side of infection with their summer fun!
    • Keep the perfume, hairspray, and other beauty products away from your pierced ears—they're on a delicate journey to healing, after all.
    • And for the love of comfy sleep, try not to snooze on the side of your newly pierced ear. Trust me, it's all about that beauty sleep without the added earache!

  4. Watch for Signs of Infection: Let's keep those ears happy and healthy, shall we? Here's what to look out for:
    • Redness, swelling, or tenderness around the piercing site? Nope, that's not the latest fashion trend—it's a sign something's up!
    • Any pus or weird discharge? Yeah, not exactly what you want to see coming out of your ears, am I right?
    • Feeling funky with persistent pain, warmth, or even a fever? Time to hit up your doctor, pronto!

And hey, while we're chatting, let's talk jewelry! Make sure to choose high-quality earrings for your ears. Luckily, HOS has got your back with our high-quality, sustainable, and, of course, affordable price range. So go ahead, treat yourself to some gorgeous new earrings—you deserve it, babe!

Happy piercing adventures, lovelies!
