22 Jun Climbskin. Hydration, prevention and recovery
As a consequence of the current situation, the use of alcohol hydrogels is common. Of course, only as a safety measure we recommend its use, although it is true that although it is less comfortable, for the skin it is much better to wash your hands with a good soap. If we are also climbing gym users, we will already be using liquid chalk solutions. Our skin will suffer.
In all cases and especially if we have dry skin, we must rehydrate it to avoid the consequences of prolonged use, such as excessive dryness and loss of elasticity. It is essential to maintain elastic skin to obtain the best performance when climbing, training or practicing our activity and not suffering damage caused by lack of hydration (cracks, calluses to rise more easily, etc.).
Keep your skin healthy and ready to climb:
- Hydrate your skin at least in the morning, at night and after each shower.
- At home, swap gels for soapy water. Wash your hands immediately after sports activity with chalk.
- Use a top-quality product like Climbskin for hydration, prevention and recovery.
