Though Henna tattoos aren’t permanent, they can end up staying on the skin for up to six weeks after the design has been placed on the skin. Rather than being removed, the ink that is created from the henna paste will absorb into the skin and have to gently fade away from the surface of the skin.
Henna can take up to six weeks to fade from the skin but there are a few things that you can do to help along the process and remove the Henna ink from the skin. Washing the area that has been used to create the Henna tattoo with an exfoliating scrub can be a great way to remove the ink from the skin, as it can help the tattoo to fade. using the gentle exfoliant a couple of times a day on the area that the tattoo has been placed can help to reduce the time in half before the tattoo fades.
