Nothing beats the feeling of a tough workout–when you feel completely exhausted, and you know you’re going to feel it the next day! However, when the feeling next day is soreness that lingers and interferes with daily activities, it’s time to turn to something topical like Biofreeze® and some good old-fashioned foam rolling and self massage!
Foam Rolling and Self Massage
Never underestimate the power of some foam rolling for relieving soreness and tightness. Simply roll the part of your body that is sore back and forth on the foam roller. You can vary the pressure you apply, depending on your needs. If you don’t have a foam roller, try a tennis ball for a targeted self massage. After your foam rolling or self massage, apply Biofreeze®.
I love using Biofreeze® after a tough workout or long run and then again before I go to bed. The USP (United States Pharmacopeia) grade menthol feels cool and refreshing. It’s great at relieving soreness and helping my legs feel springy again. I love that it provides safe and effective pain relief without any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, salicylates or addictive substances. You won’t find parabens or propylene glycol in it either–there is even a dye-free formula!
My Favorite Biofreeze® Products
My two favorite Biofreeze® products are the continuous 360° spray and the roll-on. Both products allow you to apply the product without getting it on your hands– a definite bonus if you are often on the go! I stash both of these products in my gym/running bag, so they are close at hand when I need them. The roll-on works really well on your shins or around your neck and shoulders, while the Continuous 360° Spray is great for hard to reach areas like your back!
Forget the mess of an ice bag after a tough workout or long run, and use mess-free Biofreeze®. There’s no need for a prescription to take advantage of the benefits of Biofreeze®, and you can now pick up Biofreeze® at major retailers (I just saw it on the shelf in Target!).
