Team New Skin

Hello! I am trying to get back to 80% healthy eats and hit up the store for some essentials. Ignore the beer, it’s not for me. The cat litter is for me though, don’t ask.

Summer is here! I’m a warm weather girl, so I’m very happy wlEmoticon smile10 Team New Skin

But I’m also a runner girl so I know the hot summer temperatures mean sweaty, chafing long runs. Boo.

 I recently shared my Summer Must Haves for running clothes, but I left out one very important summer running must-have: anti-chafing stuff!

 I was recently invited to be on “Team New Skin” a program to spread the word about New Skin’s product line. They make liquid bandages and anti-chafing spray specifically for athletes.

 

Over the next couple of months/ sweaty summer runs I’ll be trying out their stuff.  These are their liquid bandages in both regular and spray and the anti-chafing spray…

In the summer I tend to get irritated below my sports bra area – I haven’t done a really long run in a while and still have some marks now… (I used my camera phone’s front facing view for this so it’s extra-grainy and weird. You’re welcome.)

 I’ll check back in a few weeks with an update on if / how the anti-chafing spray helped. (I’m super excited it’s a spray since I’m in love with spray sunblock these days.)

Question: Is the front facing option of your camera phone tragic too?

    YES it’s like apple get your ish together I’m obviously taking selfless ate least half of time time, INVEST!

    I bought the spray and am kind of super unhappy with it. I even called the line on the box to complain (I’ve literally never done this) but it was closed at the time and I never bothered to call again or save the box. I hope you have better luck with the rest of the line!

    I’ve never used anti chafing stuff before. I guess I’m lucky I don’t need it?

    I have an iPhone and the front facing cam is pretty bad, though its better than it having one at all! I’m terrible at taking selfies if I can’t see the photo to align it correctly… I’ll take a grainy photo over a super crooked, off centered photo.

    Careful with the New Skin liquid band-aid… I put it on my hand tears from pullups… and I literally SCREAMED it hurt so bad..

    I’ve only ever use vaseline for my anti-chaffing needs. I stick with tight shorts so I don’t usually have to worry about that area. I might need to branch out though it the humidity of this weekend is any indication of what I will have to deal with this summer. Sweatastic!

    I use Monistat Anti-chaffing gel/cream. It’s really for just your lady parts, but i put it between my toes, on my arches, and in the thigh chub rub area. Also, in my booty crack…you know that gets irritated…don’t act like yours doesn’t…don’t judge. :P

    Good job on the eats. I’m trying harder than ever to stick to my fruits, veggies, whole wheats (except I’m somewhat sensitive to gluten I’ve discovered), and my spinach/soy/berry shakes. Wish I could get my hubs to get back to eating well. He had 2 servings of every meal this weekend! And half a pie! Bah!!!

    Just ran RnR Seattle and chafed on the back of my right arm, horrible painful! Also the top of my foot from the tongue of my shoe and underboob chafe/cut. Oy

    I’m trying to get back to healthier eating too (actually, get STARTED with healthier eating is probably a more accurate way to put that). What foods do you think are the tastiest and best for doing that? I’m doing a Vegetable Challenge right now so I’m trying to find veggies that I like and can prepare well!
