The biggest concern for most hikers are blisters. So if you are looking for a practical gift for a hiker, then get them this blister prevention cream that has been specially formulated to prevent blisters on feet.
How does it work?
The hiker applies a thick layer on a blister prone area like the heel. The cream then slowly absorbs into the skin to create a protective layer between the skin and the sock. It absorbs very slowly, providing protection all day. By the end of the day the cream is completely absorbed into the skin, leaving no residue.
It works in both dry and wet conditions and comes with an easy applicator cap. You will find these blister prevention creams in 3 and 5.5 ounce sizes. I always keep a bigger one with me, but if weight and space is a concern then the smaller tube is perfect.
All hikers know that they need to take care of their feet whilst hiking, so will appreciate your thoughtfulness in getting them a gift to help protect their feet.
