all kinds of aftercare tips out there.
You can get it wet but you don't want to saturate it. blot it dry instead of normal towel action. You should use both soap & lotion. Soap because you do want to keep it clean, lotion cause you want to keep it moisturized. I'd be careful not to get hair product or shampoo in it though if you are going for the neck.
My regimen is: Wash it regularly, after drying apply A&D ointment a couple times a day for about 5 to 7 days, then switch to lotion.
Like we said, there are lots of tips & lots of opinions out there, some are probably better than others, some are definitely worse, but I do what works for me. It's how I've treated all of mine and I've never had a problem.
Mainly I would listen to the advice of your artist, if they are a professional they should be able to give you solid advice.
