Are Sports Ruining Your Hands or Feet?

January 28, 2005 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports News
Wearing gloves can also rob moisture from your skin leaving it dry or cracked. Many athletes also experience similar effects with their feet. When you know you should be wearing gloves but don’t want to because they are annoying, at least wear Gloves In A Bottle.

Several top finishers of the Himalayan 100 mile race and Ecochallenge used Gloves In A Bottle and reported that the occurrence of blisters was greatly reduced or eliminated altogether.

Many chemicals in the sports-place are absorbed directly into your skin, causing skin disorders or just plain dry, cracked skin. Also, when participating in sporting or outdoor activities, or exposure to harsh weather, you are further drying and irritating your skin. Until now, all one could do to alleviate this condition was apply conventional lotions - artificial moisture replacement systems.

Conventional lotions only attempt to replace natural moisture with artificial moisture. The problem is they come off when you wash or touch something. Additionally, in order for any moisture to actually improve a dry skin condition it needs to get below your second major layer of skin. In reality the only moisture that is going to reach this level is your skin’s own natural moisture.

Additionally, when you apply artificial moisture to the skin’s surface you may be sending the wrong message – that your skin is being adequately moisturized, when in fact it is actually dehydrated of natural moisture. This often results in reducing production of natural moisture, which is vital to abate a dry skin condition.

Unlike artificial moisturizers, Gloves In A Bottle bonds with the outer layer of skin to turn it into what works like an invisible pair of gloves. These "invisible gloves" keep moisture robbing irritants out while helping to retain your skin’s own natural moisture, resulting in skin that is better hydrated than what is achieved by conventional lotions.

Gloves In A Bottle is virtually undetectable once dry, lasts four hours or more, and comes off naturally with exfoliated skin cells.

Gloves In A Bottle is available at 9500 pharmacies and 3000 specialty stores nationwide. For more information call 800-600-1881 or visit
