When we take physical exercise, we often expose both muscles and joints to extreme conditions that – as most people know – require subsequent extension and maybe even care from a chiropractor, physiotherapist or similar. But very few people are also aware that the skin on their hands, feet, face, etc. is also exposed to extreme conditions that require good, solid skin care to avoid dry, irritated and perhaps even damaged skin. Helosan® is with you in all weathers, in any sport or outdoor activity.

Moisturise the skin before & after outdoor activities

When we practice outdoor sports, the skin on the face and hands is particularly exposed to cold, heat, sun, frost, etc., depending on when in the year the sport is practiced. In winter, the skin is particularly prone to dehydration and drying out, and in summer the sun’s hot rays stress the skin’s protective barrier – both require intensive skin care in the form of preventive care but to a large extent also subsequent care with emollient and moisturising skin ointment such as Helosan® Original. With its unique formula, Helosan® works deeply, softens the skin and adds skin-friendly fats that promote the skin’s own repair process, while the ointment settles as a temporary layer that provides long-lasting hydration and protection against dehydration. Thanks to its high fat content, Helosan® skin ointment also provides a pleasant surface which repels water and dirt.

Make your run more effective with a good skin care routine

Most runners run in all kinds of weather; rain, snow, on summer days or on windy autumn days. As previously mentioned, good skin care is important in this case, both on the face and on the hands, but, since the feet are also exposed to wear and tear during the running round, it is important to ensure both preventive and moisturising skin care. With the help of a good foot care routine using Helosan® Fotsalva, you can avoid dry skin on the feet and in the worst case heel cracks that could otherwise lead to your runs being put on ice for a period of time until the painful cracks in the heels have healed again.

Helosan® skin ointment as a protective trouser grease

You are well aware that you can lubricate the skin with Helosan® Original to reduce stressful friction and the risk of suffering from abrasions in the intimate regions. Helosan® Original is an ideal skin care product for use as so-called trouser grease. Whether you are into road cycling, mountain biking, indoor track riding, equestrian sports or marathons, it is a good idea to use trouser grease to protect the skin in the lower areas. The skin between the buttocks is extra sensitive and an exposed skin area is likely to suffer from tenderness and inflammatory conditions due to abrasion and friction. The advantage of using Helosan® Original as trouser grease is that the ointment is gentle on the skin, vegan and completely unscented. This means that the ointment is also excellent for use in precisely those areas that are extra exposed in relation to thin and delicate skin.

Sports and fitness in the strong rays of the sun

When you exercise in the summer, on those hot summer days, it is often a good idea first and foremost to make sure to protect yourself from sunburn. This is best done with a sunscreen or ointment that contains a sufficiently high sun factor. Be sure to apply a lot and also lubricate several times a day for optimal effect.

In addition, when you have been in the sun for a long time without interruption, you should always take care of your skin with a product that moisturises it and gives it the opportunity to recover from the sun’s external stress. Helosan® Original contains carefully selected moisturising ingredients that together have a synergistic effect that promotes the supply of moisture to the skin and keeps it soft and supple, while it adds skin-friendly fats that promote the skin’s own repair process and provide long-lasting hydration and protection against dehydration.

Gentle skin care during a skiing holiday

On a skiing holiday, many people have experienced what it is like to come home after a long day on the slopes only to discover that where the ski goggles have been sitting all day – yes, there is now a really nice drawing of yourself, same thing because the sun has really taken hold of the cheeks, nose and forehead. So it is just as important that you remember to lubricate yourself with large amounts of sunscreen during your skiing holiday where the sun goes down – both to avoid the above, but mainly to avoid annoying and painful burns.

In addition, you will be exposing your skin to harsh weather conditions in the form of cold, frost, snow and wind on your skiing holiday – that is, some of the worst factors when it comes to dry and irritated skin. So it is a good idea to remember to bring a good, oily ointment so that you can take care of your skin with both morning and evening, just to prevent the skin from drying out. For this purpose, you can use Helosan® Original to great advantage, just as Helosan® Fotsalva is the perfect care product for the care of tired feet.
