The Holiday season is fast approaching, and to prevent piercing and jewelry mishaps, it’s time to start thinking about how to make our Holiday worry free.
It may be easy to slack on cleaning, soaking, or protecting one or more of our piercings during the busy Holiday rush. With all of the shopping, traffic, errands, and extra work, there’s barely time to squeeze in a two minute shower, let alone all the time and ceremony of a ten minute sea salt rinse and a five minute cleanse with antibacterial soap. That’s where some handy little helpers step in. With the variety of on-the-go aftercare products readily available, you can choose from ready swabs, sea salt sprays, mouth rinses for oral piercings, and even handy polishing cloths to do a quick shine-up before that important dinner. If you’re anything like me, you’ll want to keep a set of your favorites in the house and the car at all times for those “just in case” situations.
This is also the perfect time of year to build your back stock of jewelry items so that you won’t be caught without a piece of jewelry to wear if anything should accidentally break, strip its threads, or have a vital piece get lost. Simple but cute versions of most body jewelry items can be found at great prices this time of year, so snatching up a few to have as back-ups is a breeze. Just check out the cute pieces below, all just 99 cents.
Finally, for the pierced people in your life, it’s extremely cost effective (and more heartfelt) to put together your own matching sets of jewelry as gifts. Giving someone with multiple piercings a set of matching body jewelry featuring their favorite colors or motifs is a cute way to show you care, and with online shopping you can do it all from home. Take the set we’ve made below. Starting with a staple piece (we chose a multi-functional plain stainless steel captive on clearance for just $0.39) a cute Holiday set with matching nose bones, belly rings, labret studs, and even changeable replacement balls can come together for just a few dollars.
The Holidays may be hectic, hair raising, and downright exhausting sometimes, but if we arm ourselves with the right tools to get the job done, we can all have some sweet seasonal fun.
