This Baby Powder Beauty Hack Will Improve Your Workout

Next time you’re at the drugstore, remember to grab one more thing: baby powder. We know all about plumping up the lashes and magically making stubborn sand disappear, but there’s a functional use for fitness junkies too. 

You know how spas apply baby powder to the red areas after a bikini or brow wax? They do this to calm irritated skin. The same goes for chaffed areas that result from working out. Runners have long loved to sprinkle the stuff onto their toes, but it works wonders to soothe friction on the knees and elbows, too. All this AND the “magic” powder is cheap: A travel-size container by Johnson is only $5!
