As an endurance athlete, I have come to realize the importance of not only focusing on performance and nutrition but also taking care of the parts of our body that often go overlooked. When it comes to skincare, dermasport has become a product that I highly recommend to male endurance athletes. In fact, I would even go as far as suggesting that they consider incorporating dermasport into their routine in the same way I recommend getting pedicures. I tested dermasport for a month and wrote this product review to highlight why skincare for male endurance athletes is important. By the way, it’s also easy.
Neglected Warriors: Skin and Feet in Endurance Sports
Endurance athletes, whether we’re swimming, cycling, or running for hours on end, put our bodies through tremendous strain. We dedicate so much time and effort to improving our performance and ensuring that our nutrition is on point. However, amidst all of this, we tend to neglect the areas that require the most care – our skin and our feet.
Think about it. We subject our skin to harsh environmental conditions, such as the sun’s UV rays and the wind’s drying effects. We also expose our feet to repetitive impact and pressure, leading to calluses, blisters, and other foot-related issues. If we want to continue participating in endurance sports well into our later years, it is crucial that we prioritize the care of our bodies, inside and out.
Introducing Dermasport: Nourishing Your Skin
That’s where dermasport comes into play. By incorporating their products into your skincare routine, you can provide your skin with the nourishment and protection it needs. The sunscreen’s advanced formula shields your skin from harmful UV rays, reducing the risk of sun damage and premature aging. Additionally, dermasport’s lightweight and sweat-resistant formula make it ideal for endurance athletes, ensuring that it stays put even during the most intense workouts.
The dermasport sunscreen went on easy and was thin in comparison to other sunscreens. When I used the product I didn’t worry about whether or not I had a white sheen on my face because it rubbed into my skin easily and was thin.
An additional benefit is that it didn’t run down my face while swimming or running. I didn’t have a taste of sunscreen in my mouth or a burning in my eyes as the workout went on.
A couple of pumps of the cleanser was all that was needed to remove the sunscreen while showering but I didn’t always wait to shower. When I was testing the product during open water swims I brought the cleanser with me. I would splash water on my face and then wash off the sunscreen. A few more splashes and the cleanser was gone. Towel dry and ready to go.
As a person who didn’t have a skincare routine prior to using dermasport, it was refreshing to feel the difference from having the sunscreen to not having the sunscreen.
This product was the hardest to remember to use because I was not using a facial moisturizer before testing out the dermasport products. Some days I would forget but that changed when I left the bottle out on the counter on run days and packed into my open water swim bag on swim days.
Similar to the sunscreen, the moisturizer is thin. It rubs onto your face with ease and doesn’t feel heavy.
Making It a Ritual: Incorporating Dermasport into Your Routine
When it comes down to it, incorporating dermasport into your skincare routine is an essential step in maintaining the overall health and longevity of your skin. By doing so, you are investing in your ability to participate in endurance sports well into the future.
Embracing Dermasport and Total Athletic Care
So, male endurance athletes, let’s not overlook the importance of skincare and foot care. Make dermasport a part of your routine, just like you would lace up your shoes or plan your nutrition. Take the time to care for your body inside and out, and you’ll be rewarded to continue pursuing your passion for endurance sports for years to come. Skincare for male endurance athletes is important and dermasport makes it easy.
