Hey all! Happy Thursday from me, Alley. Welcome to The Tea - it's my weekly e-zine where I discuss piercings, mods, and all things Body Candy!
I wanted to do a fun one today, so we're going to talk about piercing myths vs. facts. Sometimes myths are ridiculous, but other times they sound like they could have some merit. Let's take a deeper look at three of the most popular "myths" that seem to keep popping up! Today's topics:
- Have you ever heard a piercing "fact" and wondered if it was true? Us too! Let's discuss: - Can daith piercings can cure migraines?
- Is tea tree oil/ointment/lotion good for my healing piercing? - Do nipple piercings affect breastfeeding?
- Which ones do you think are myth vs. fact? Watch this week's video to find out the tea on them all!
One of my favorite parts of my job is hearing from Body Candy customers all over the world... This time around, we asked a bunch of customers what it was like to get their eyebrow pierced. An eyebrow piercing is a surface piercing located directly above the upper eyelid. Most of the time, this piercing is adorned with a curved barbell that runs right behind the hair that makes up your eyebrow. Everyone's piercing experience at the shop is going to be different, but if you've been thinking about getting a piercing, it can feel really refreshing and encouraging to know how someone else's procedure went. Check out our latest blog over on the Body Jewelry Blog - it's called, "What Does It Feel Like To Get Your Eyebrow Pierced?"
Now that we've made it into July, it's more important than ever to make sure your skin is staying protected, healthy, and safe... Sunscreen is very important, moisturizing and lotions are also huge, but adding a powerful serum like Christopher David Vitamin C Serum to your skin care routine can ensure that you stay vibrant and youthful through summer and beyond. What's the deal with this vitamin C-packed stuff? Christopher David Vitamin C serum is an incredible topical treatment made specifically to keep your face looking its best.
