Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salts is part of my self-care toolkit. After a run, I enjoy soaking and relaxing in the bath with Epsom salts by Dr. Teals. I find it smoothes my skin as well. It is an excellent stocking stocker.
Bare Foot Mask by Freeman – After a run, my feet get pampered by wearing a foot mask with disposable booties. The mask soothes and hydrates my feet and I don’t need to go to the spa. It makes a perfect stocking stuffer.
And, to add to keep my feet happy I use the Bare Foot, Foot Balm, it helps softens my dry skin and calluses.
I deal at times with leg muscle soreness after an intense run. I was introduced to the Conair Superlite Deep Tissue Massage Gun – this will help massage your tired sore muscles and joints.
