The holidays are here and for many that means vacations! And with vacations usually comes a fair or excessive amount of walking. And with all that extra walking comes blisters. Do you know the tips and tricks to try and avoid blisters? A few I’ve learned over the years are alternating your shoes each day, wear moisture wicking socks and soak tired feet in Epsom salts. But when you are on vacation sometimes you forget or over do it and a nasty blister appears. And it hurts! Compeed has a solution for those days when you’ve over done it. Compeed has designed blister cushions! These wonderful cushions will stay in place and help offer, the much needed relief, from a blister.
Compeed blister cushions come in a variety of sizes, so you are sure to find the perfect fit for your blister. Just this past weekend we took a little trip to Chicago and spent a fair amount of time walking. With that I started to feel a blister coming on because I didn’t alternate shoes like I knew I should. Of course my problem spot was right on my heel but Compeed had me covered. I took a cushion, peeled off the wrapper and placed it over my issue spot. Instantly my blister was protected and I was able to keep moving. The cushion stayed in place the remainder of our vacation which I appreciated so I didn’t have to keep switching it out.
Compeed makes a variety of sizes available to purchase. There is a pack for small cushions, medium cushions (this is the one I used and it worked great for the heel), mixed sizes and an extreme cushion set. They retail between $8.99-$9.49 and are exclusive to Walgreens. So if you have a vacation coming up or you plan on hitting the stores for Black Friday you may want to pick up a pack. Save your feet so you can keep on going.
