New Skin is a liquid bandage compound -- you can buy it in brush-on or
spray-on form. It was designed as flexible, waterproof protection for
boo-boos that won't snag or soak loose like band-aids. It turns out to
be really great on henna for several reasons: 1) it tacks the paste
down like you wouldn't believe, 2) it seals in the moisture, so you
really get your three-to-eight hours' worth, and 3) it contains
eugenol (clove oil), which can help darken your stain.
Drug stores and some grocers carry it in the first aid section next to
the bandages... anywhere from three to five dollars.
