EMBARRASSING BODY PROBLEM #1 – Unwanted Hair
We love it on our heads, but hate it just about everywhere else! Hair growing in undesirable places, like between your eyebrows or under your arms isn’t uncommon. Luckily, there are many options available to remove unwanted hair—shaving or trimming is the least expensive, but you can also try waxing, depilatories and laser hair removal.
EMBARRASSING BODY PROBLEM #2 – Hemorrhoids
Reluctant to discuss that pain “back there?” You can rest easy—many times, discomfort from hemorrhoids may be helped with very simple steps such as dietary changes and topical creams. Reach for RectiCare® (Lidocaine 5%) Anorectal Cream, a topical, local anesthetic which contains the highest non-prescription lidocaine strength available. It works quickly to relieve the pain, itching and burning associated with hemorrhoids and other anorectal disorders. $29.99 at Walgreens and Rite Aid locations.
EMBARRASSING BODY PROBLEM #3 – Back Acne and Butt Pimples
If worrying about the pimples on your face isn’t enough, what about when it turns up on your back…. and butt? Blemishes on your backside are a total bummer, but you can actually use the same acne treatments that you use on your face. Look for products that contain dermatologist recommended acne fighting ingredients, such as salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.
EMBARRASSING BODY PROBLEM #4 – Unsightly Bruises
Ouch—as if the pain wasn’t enough! Now you have to deal with the ugly bruise on your body. Or maybe bruises show up and you don’t even remember hurting yourself. Luckily for you and your “black & blue” body, DerMend® Moisturizing Bruise Formula can help to improve the appearance of bruised skin. Formulated with ingredients such as ceramides, retinol, arnica oil and glycolic acid, this unique non-irritating cream absorbs easily into the skin and won’t stain clothing! $29.99 at CVS locations and online at www.cvs.com.
EMBARRASSING BODY PROBLEM #5 – Extreme Foot Odor
Nothing ruins date night or a good pair of shoes like an extreme case of stinky feet! Heat and sweat create the perfect environment for bacteria, which is usually what causes the odor. Wash your tootsies frequently with antibacterial soap and let your feet breathe as much as possible.
