New Foot Sweat and Odor Prevention Product: FootShield

FS Bottle_cutout-NoRMedi-Dyne has announced the release of a new product called FootShield. FootShield is an innovative product that helps users keep their feet dry and free of odors. FootShield acts as a drying agent, as well as an odor eliminator, to aid in foot sweat and odor prevention.

Medi-Dyne offers a number of scent-reducing or scent-eliminating products under their 2Toms® lineup. FootShield fits into that product category very effectively. The 2Toms sweat and odor line now includes four separate products, each of which focuses on a different aspect of keeping clothing or individuals sweat and/or odor-free. FootShield creates a perspiration barrier for feet, reducing the chance that they become sweaty and odorous. FootShield reduces the chances of sweaty feet and bacterial growth with the use of natural ingredients, natural antifungals and moisturizers. In addition, FootShield prevents shoes from smelling over time and also has a positive impact on the prevention of athlete’s foot.

Craig DiGiovanni, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Medi-Dyne, says, “FootShield is a natural addition to our 2Toms line of skin care and odor prevention products. Our 2Toms product line provides solutions for an array of issues that occur while living an active life and our goal is to have you protected from head to toe.” As Medi-Dyne continues to grow their 2Toms line, it is reasonable to expect that Mr. DiGiovanni will share additional statements on expansion plans for the 2Toms line.

Medi-Dyne is a global company that provides a wide range of products for medical professionals and consumers, including athletes. Many of their core products provide easy to use, affordable pain relief solutions. Medi-Dyne products are designed to work together to ensure maximum results and enhance peak performance.

Stop Toe Blisters Before Your Run

 Blister Prevention

Stop Toe Blisters Before Your Run

I’m not sure what I was thinking, but last weekend I went for my long run without applying any blister prevention product between my toes.

I have squished toes. They all overlap slightly, which means I get blisters in between my toes (and sometimes on the bottom of them, too!) during long runs unless I remember to treat them pre-work out. If you also get toe blisters, 2Toms has blister-prevention products you can use to stop them.

BlisterShield

BlisterShield 8oz Shaker BottleBlisterShield is a powder that, when applied to the foot, repels moisture. Shake BlisterShield into your sock before your run and it will help keep your skin dry and prevent those blisters that occur because of that sweaty friction in your sock. (For tips on how to apply BlisterShield, click the link.) BlisterShield doesn’t “soak up” the moisture and lose its effectiveness. It repels moisture so it can continue to work for long periods of time!

BlisterShield will especially help prevent those blisters on the bottom of your feet and toes, the ones that are caused by excess friction and heat buildup in your shoe. You can even use BlisterShield in addition to another 2Toms product, SportShield, for twice the blister prevention–extra important if you are an ultra runner or a long-distance hiker!

SportShield

SportShield is a full-body silicone-based anti-chafe product, and one of my favorites because it doesn’t rub off. (You can wash it off with a baby wipe or soap and water, though, after your workout.) It comes in a roll-on applicator or you can get the single-use towelettes, which would be great in an emergency pack for long-distance runners and hikers. I usually use the roll-on applicator to apply SportShield between my toes before long runs.

SportShield’s non-toxic, non-greasy formula creates a waterproof barrier between my toes. The silkiness of it allows my toes to rub against each other without friction so that I don’t get those darn toe blisters!

You can watch a video on how SportShield works or learn more about SportShield by clicking on the links.

Preventing toe blisters is really as simple as taking a minute to apply either one or both of these products, and it can save you from so much pain later. I definitely will not forget to use my BlisterShield and SportShield on my next long run!

A Sports Detergent that Doesn’t Stink

Do you wash your running clothes and they still stink afterward?

That’s what was happening to me. I would wash my workout gear with a sports detergent I bought at the grocery store, yet they would still smell bad when they were done. Only now they stunk like sweaty flowers. Gross. I really did not know how to get my running gear clean.

Luckily, 2Toms came out with their Stink Free Sports Detergent and I haven’t stunk since. Okay, that’s not entirely correct. I stink up my clothes during every run. However, now I don’t stink before my run…which is especially nice for everyone around me.

Did you know that over time, high-tech fabrics–such as Dri-Fit or Coolmax–become stinky because of all the  sweat our bodies produce during tough workouts?  Regular detergents aren’t formulated for that nasty stuff. Sports detergents, such as 2Toms’ Stink Free, are. Therefore, they are more effective than regular laundry detergents at getting the smell out of stinky running clothes, socks or any other sort of athletic gear.

So if you are like I was and smell like perspiration-scented roses before your run, you need to try the Stink Free Sports Detergent. Here’s what you need to know about it:

  • Safe on all high-performance fabrics and colors
  • Residue-free
  • Perfume-free
  • Won’t irritate skin
  • Reinstates fabric performance
  • Leaves clothes naturally soft and static-free
  • Safe for all washing machines, including high-efficiency machines
  • Recyclable bottle

Obviously, you don’t need to be a runner to need Stink Free Sports Detergent. It’s also great for walkers and hikers, yoga practitioners, football and hockey players, cyclists, gymnasts, dancers, equestrians, basketball and soccer players–really any sport, exercise or dirty job!

I say it’s time to stop trying to hide the stinky smell on our workout gear with floral scents and, instead, actually get them clean. Who’s with me?

How to Treat Chafing Thighs (and More) When You’re Mid-Race or Mid-Day

Chafing thighs are no fun–especially at mile 20 of a marathon or during the bike portion of your 70.3. But what do you do if you experience chafing mid-race?

Sure, you can go to an aid station, but they usually give out petroleum jelly. It’ll offer some relief for your thighs (or whatever body part is getting chafed) for a few minutes, but then it breaks down and soaks into your skin. Then what?

Most people don’t carry anti-chafing products with them during a race because the packaging is too big to pack. 2Toms thought about this and has the perfect solution for chafing thighs: ButtShield Single-Use Wipes and SportShield Trial Size Towlettes! Simply pack one or two of these small, flat packets in your fuel belt, and your thighs will be good to go…on the go!

ButtShield Single-Use Wipes contain the same formula as 2Toms’ ButtShield roll-on: Dimethicone, Shea Butter, Calendula Extract, Green Tea Extract, Horestail Plant Extract, Aloe Vera Extract and Vitamin E. This special solution is unconditionally guaranteed to protect your skin from painful chafing, from saddle sores to friction burns to butt rashes. When you’re ready to wash it off, soap and water will do the trick.

The single-use wipe is flat and compact so it packs easily. Take it to equestrian events, long bike rides, when you’re going out jet skiing or when you plan to be walking around outside for a long time–such as at all-day outdoor events like at the fair or at an amusement park.

SportShield Trial Size Towelettes contain the same ingredients as 2Toms’ popular SportShield Roll-on–Dimethicone, ALoe Vera Extract and Vitamin E–in a perfect single-use wipe. The solution is great for chafing on the inside of thighs, over nipples, on feet, between toes, on underarms, and even between skin and sports bras, or any strap that might rub or chafe your skin.

The silicone-based SportShield solution, which washes off with soap and water, won’t stain, is non-toxic and isn’t greasy.  SportShield Trial Size Towelettes are the perfect size to pack so you can take them with you for chafing emergencies during a race!

Learn more about how you can stop chafing with SportShield by watching this short video:

So, no more worrying about where the next aid station is to get a dab of useless petroleum jelly for your chafing thighs! Now you can bring your own relief with you.
