Spanking Aftercare


by
Alex in Spanking Land

I get spanked a lot.  In most cases, I get spanked, usually with an implement, at least once a day. The other day, one of my friends asked me how I manage to keep my butt from falling off when I get spanked so much (and often, so hard). It's a challenge, I will tell you! When I first moved in with my Dominant and I was adapting to getting spanked so often, I had some problems with weird, hard, dried out skin on my bottom and thighs. Over the past couple of months, though, I've perfected my butt-skincare regime, which

I will now share with all of you!

Step 1: Lotion.

Lotion is a spanko bottom's best friend. There are a lot of lotions available-- there are special aftercare lotions offered by some places that sell implements and there are billions of types of lotion offered in stores. What should a spanko look for in a lotion? You probably want an unscented and uncolored lotion. Pretty, sparkly, nice smelling stuff tends to have things in it that cause irritation, and that's contrary to the cause of making the skin on your butt nice. If you're getting spanked, you already have enough butt irritation in your life. There are a couple of ingredients that are particularly good for the skin—Collagen Elastin is one and Vitamin E is another.

Personally, I use St. Ives Skin Renewing Lotion.

I do want to point out that products containing Collagen Elastin are generally not very vegan.

I've also had great success with Vitamin E Body Butter from The Body Shop.  This is actually vegan, for all you vegan spankos.

Now that you've selected an excellent lotion, you need to use it. I suggest using it every morning and night, after every time that you shower, take a bath or otherwise submerge yourself in water and every time you get a spanking. I try to keep up with doing it that often and it works out well for me. The point of lotion is to keep your skin healthy and moisturized, and to keep it both strong and soft. It makes your skin less likely to break during a spanking, because most people don't want a bloody butt, and it also keeps the texture from feeling dry and gross.

Step 2: Baths

I take warm baths in order to relax. I also find it to be very good for my skin—it makes all the dead skin soften up and makes exfoliation (coming up!) easier, and if your skin has become hard from a spanking, it helps it to soften in the deeper layers. I also use Colloidal Oatmeal in my baths. It's incredibly soothing. It makes your skin feel wonderfully soft, too. The most common brand of Colloidal Oatmeal is Aveeno. That is what I use.

Step 3: Exfoliation

Depending on how much of a callous you get on your butt, you might need to exfoliate a little or a lot. A little bit of exfoliation would be kind of scrubbing with a washcloth or a sponge in the shower. A medium amount involves actually using the brush side of a bath brush (WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT?!) or a loofa (also in the shower.) Personally, because I fear getting a calloused butt and I get spanked ALL THE TIME, I've taken to using the gentler side of a foot file while I'm in the bath. If it hurts, you're being too rough. After you exfoliate, use more lotion, the sooner the better.

THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: DO NOT exfoliate just after a hard scene. Don’t even rub a washcloth over the skin. This can cause your upper epidermal layers (that is to say, quite a bit of your skin) to come off, which is not just gross, but painful and very detrimental to your healing process.

Step 4: Vitamins

It’s been recommended to me by several people that spanko bottoms take vitamins. As stated before, Vitamin E is important in skin renewal, and if your diet is lacking, it can be taken orally. Iron can be important if you are experiencing excessive bruising or bruises that take an extremely long time to heal. Vitamin K plays an important part in proper blood coagulation and in general vascular health. This is an important thing for spanko bottoms, as the bruising that we experience after a spanking results from internal bleeding.  That said, one should not self-prescribe vitamins. Make sure that a doctor or nutritionist approves of you taking supplements and that you are taking an appropriate dose for your age, size and need. In many cases, a multivitamin tablet will suffice.

Afterthought: Arnica and bruise reduction

Most spankos seem to swear by arnica for healing bruises. Healing bruises is not part of skin care, but I am going to talk about it right now anyway, because it *is* part of butt care. Personally, there is only one time when I care about healing up my bruises, and that's when I'm modeling. In my day to day life, I like to have a bruised bottom. It makes me happy. That said, the times that I've used arnica in its various forms, I have seen no measurable improvement in the healing time on my bruising. What DOES seem to work well is using ice immediately after a spanking (but not if you're getting spanked more that night, ugh!) and massaging my butt a lot. This seems contrary to common sense, but being lightly to moderately spanked with a hand or with a leather implement does, in my experience, help to reduce the time that bruising takes to heal. This is because spanking brings more blood to the bottom and therefore focuses the body’s attention on that area.
