Let’s face it, exercise is excellent for your mind and body whether you’re a hardcore athlete training for a triathlon or you’re off out for a weekend hike. Whatever activity you indulge in, it increases your blood circulation, strengthens muscles and improves your mood. Of course, the downside to exercise is sweating, chafing, dryness or exposure to the sun, which is why it’s vitally important to look after your skin. This is especially so for athletes who face a unique set of problems, and this is where Balmy Fox can help soothe your woes with our range of natural and ethical balms and creams.
