Summertime healing with Aquaphor Package #giveaway Visa Gift Card

After spending all day at the Magic Kingdom yesterday, it finally hit me. Summer is finally here. Technically tomorrow, but the heat and humidity is in full force. I find it hard in this heat with my marathon training and need to either run in the mornings or learn to love my treadmill (will never happen). With this heat, I find myself very dehydrated. I don't drink enough water so I am currently on a "drink 3 CamelBaks a day" regimen. 

As I am always dehydrated, I suffer from severe dry skin and I have been a huge fan of Aquaphor for quite some time. Dry skin is caused by a loss of water in the upper layer of the skin and the moisturizers in Aquaphor work by forming an oily layer on the top of the skin that traps water in the skin. I not only use it on my knees and elbows for intense hydration but also use it for scrapes and burns. Have I ever mentioned how clumsy I am? I ran into a pole once while running because I was too busy talking. I always have a scrape somewhere on my body.
When Aquaphor contacted me to check out their petite sized convenient flip cap tube, I was instantly intrigued. I used Aquaphor daily prior to them contacting me and was initially introduced to the product from my dermatologist. I owe Aquaphor for healing the multiple blisters I received after my multiple half marathons in a 4 month span.
So the good people at Aquaphor sent me an amazing package to help keep me hydrated during the summer. I am also slightly obsessed with their new lip balm. In addition to a ton of Aquaphor products, I also received a CamelBak, which is my new BFF and a $50 Visa Gift Card. Guess what - they want to send one of my readers the exact same package.

Leave a comment below and let me know how you plan on using Aquaphor when you and your friends/family are out and about this summer! Make sure you enter through rafflecopter as this is how I select my winner randomly.  If you are unsure how to use Rafflecopter, click here for a short video tutorial

  10. I used it when I nearly cut the tip of my finger off with a mandolin. It really helped heal the skin fast! I also use it so I don't chaffe when I'm running. I even carried it with me during my last half marathon so I could reapply if necessary, which I didn't, but I was able to share it with other runners at the start who didn't have their own little tube with them!
