The British Isles is a fantastic place to live. We’re fortunate to have gorgeous countryside from Cornwall to Cumbria and totally stunning scenery from the Highlands of Scotland to the Welsh Brecon Beacons and the Peak District. It’s no wonder we Brits love getting our hiking boots on and getting out and about. But what can you do to keep your feet smiling and avoid your serene and uplifting walk turning into a painful disaster?
And the Ugly…
Healthy Feet, Happy Hiking! Walkers Foot Cream
Investing in an excellent moisturising repair cream is also vital to maintain skin health, especially when it comes to your feet and hands. Balmy Fox does a super-efficient repair cream specifically targeted to these areas—although you can use it just about anywhere. Our ‘On the Trail’ Hand & Foot Repair Cream is a marvellously moisturising natural remedy that helpfully contains Arnica to relieve inflammation and Tea Tree for its natural antiseptic and anti-fungal properties. Containing 80% organic ingredients, applying the skin repairing cream before starting off, during and post-hike not only keeps your skin moisturised but will help with any inflammation and healing too. Job done! And this can only be good news as it means you’ll be back out walking again in no time with not even a whimper of blister hell in sight!
So, What is the Ultimate Hiking Kit?
Balmy Fox for sports and outdoor skincare has put their heads (and feet) together with their crucial list of what you should pack in your hiking or walking kit:
And Don't forget the other Exposed Parts!
Whilst our feet may do all the walking, it’s essential not to forget about the other exposed body parts. The British weather can sometimes be harsh and varied, whether it’s scorching sun or driving wind and rain. The great news is that our ‘On the Trail’ Hand & Foot Repair Cream does what it says on the tin and will take care of your hands just as it does for your feet—a two-in-one to keep money in your pocket and more space in your kit! But don’t forget about those lips, which can be the first part of your body to dry out, especially in windy conditions. However, with Balmy Fox’s deliciously moisturising lip balm packed in your kit, the word ‘chapped’ won’t ever cross your lips! Lovingly created to soften lips after just one application, our natural outdoor Lip Balm will aid in repairing dry, cracked lips, as well as providing hours of moisturisation. So, take it from us, inviting Balmy Fox on your travels can only mean healthy skin, happy feet and a friendly smile!
Is Balmy Fox Hand and Foot Repair Cream, also useful as a runners foot cream?
Yes, you can use our Hand and Foot Repair Cream, but for more problem skin, try our Anti-Chafe cream.
Can I use muscle rub balm for shin splints?
Shin splints is a type of shin pain, usually caused by exercise. It’s not serious and there are things you can do to help, applying and massaging in a good muscle rub cream will certainly help offer some relief.
