Wrap your wrists with tape. And for good reason. Wrapping your wrists with tape is a way of protecting your skin from the sun and minimizing the risk of damage from contact with the elements.
I’m not going to lie, I kind of hate the idea of tape. I have tried it in the past, but it’s too painful to apply, and my skin does not want to cooperate. I also hate the idea of wrapping my hands to avoid the pain, so it’s not a bad idea to at least consider.
You can try both methods and see which one you prefer. I have recently discovered that one of the reasons I hated tape was because the tape would get on my skin and I didn’t want to spend 10 minutes applying tape to a problem area on my wrist. I had to wrap my arm, and that was painful, and I didn’t want to do it. So I gave up on the tape idea.
I am also not very fond of using tape. I hate how it leaves a nasty residue that bothers my skin. A good option is to simply give your wrist a quick application of Vaseline.
If you use Vaseline, make sure you do it right. The Vaseline will adhere to the problem area, so use the least harsh one. You’ll also be able to see which one you like better with Vaseline.
Vaseline is a great option for wrapping, but be warned that it can also leave a mark. After a few days your skin can feel as if it has been scrubbed with a scrub brush. The Vaseline will help prevent that from happening.
I hope I did that right.
You do have to wrap your wrist thoroughly, however. The Vaseline is a thin, non-sticky product that can leave a mark if not applied properly. It can also dry out your skin, so if you have sensitive skin remember to apply your Vaseline before going to bed.
The Vaseline is also an excellent way to prevent bleeding. A little dab of Vaseline on your skin (even just a few drops) will stop bleeding, but you don’t want to apply too much because it can leave a mark. It’s also possible to get some sort of rash or other reaction if you apply too much. Use a cloth to wipe off excess Vaseline.
As you can see you can use a cloth to clean off excess Vaseline but it may leave a mark. It’s also possible to get some sort of rash or other reaction if you apply too much. Use a cloth to wipe off excess Vaseline.
