Well done on the rogaine, olga
! And CONGRATULATIONS!! :)
I like Aquaphor, because it's already in our kid supplies, but plain old generic Petroleum Jelly is probably just as good (it's the main ingredient in Aquaphor anyway). That's a different
main ingredient than Hydropel's dimethicone though. I think Body Glide uses dimethicone in at least one product, and there's Remedy Dimethicone Cream
(sort of 'generic' alternatives) as well.
I agree with you eldersmith
, it's incredibly annoying the way shoe makers change their models. I would pay good money for several types of older shoes that are no longer available, because of the perfection of their fit to my feet. Which of course is the #1 thing you can do for your feet: wear shoes that fit. If you're getting blisters after 10 miles bobjenkins79
, that says to me that the shoe doesn't fit: either size or shape (or both!).
I second the "Wrightsock" vote by mbo
. They're so thin and light I sometimes wear two pairs (for four
layers!) when I know I'm going to be in particularly rough terrain (rocks, roots, debris, steep contouring). The cheapy alternative is 2/3/4 pairs of men's dress socks which you can often buy at your discount clothier by the bag for a ridiculously low price. For that classy look. :)
