Pretty in Ink

Fashion (Canada) - - Beauty Fix -

Made with only nine in­gre­di­ents, in­clud­ing babassu, co­paiba and andiroba oils, THE BODY SHOP’s Ama­zo­nian Saviour Multi-Pur­pose Balm ($25) bright­ens up tat­toos that have faded over time due to fac­tors like sun ex­po­sure. “Tat­too pig­ment lives in the der­mis, and it’s cov­ered by the epi­der­mis,” says Dr. Chris­tine Choi Kim, global der­ma­tol­o­gist for The Body Shop. “By mois­tur­iz­ing the epi­der­mis and keep­ing it hy­drated, you can see through it and bet­ter see the ink.” The lid fea­tures the de­signs of U.K. tat­too artist Saira Hun­jan (she inked the swal­lows on Kate Moss’s back) and ref­er­ences the life force of the Ama­zo­nian rain­for­est, where some of the oils were sourced.
