Can I Swim After I Have SMP?
You have to wait about 3 days before you go swimming (ocean, lake); however, if there is chlorine in the water (typical swimming pool) you should wait at least 30 days to be sure there is no connection between the pigment and the water. When SMP is properly done, the pigment settles below the epidermis within 30 days, so the chlorine from the swimming pool can not reach the pigment. Chlorine can bleach the pigment and change its color. Ocean or lake water should be fine.
