As the weather warms up, I was reminded of a very important runner issue... CHAFING. No kidding, the first time I ran in a tank top (in the beating sun), I came home with more than a good sweat. Yup, underarm chafe...
I can't complain too much. I used to have chafing issues in a lot more places (read an older post here). For some reason, my underarms still get irritated when I run in warm weather. When I forget to glide on protection ahead of time, I need relief... fast. These little red puppies sting!
That's when I turn to Aquaphor.
I first started using the healing ointment when my children were babies. My little ones have been blessed with my sensitive skin, so they were always getting little red dry splotches on their baby skin. Aquaphor provides advanced care for dry, chapped and irritated skin. It's perfect for sensitive skin like mine because there are no fragrances, dyes and preservatives.
Glide Aquaphor Healing Ointment on pre-run for skin protection. I especially use this for winter runs to protect my cheeks from the blowing snow and wind. In the summer, it helps to protect against nasty chaffing. Use post-run to heal any skin irritations from friction or sweat.
I just recently started using Aquaphor Lip Repair. In addition to sun exposure, I tend to lick my lips when I run. So my lips tend to get dried out and sometimes chapped. Also fragrance, dye and preservative-free, the Aquaphor lip repair is enriched with shea butter, vitamins C and E and chamomile essence for a soothing relief.
