We, desi people, have a solution to all our problems. Our dadiyan-naniyan can write a book on desi totkas regarding every personal or private problem anyone could have. There are two kinds of brown people: those who exercise A LOT! And those who don’t exercise AT ALL!.
The ones who are fond of exercises and cherishing the endorphins released in the body may be able to relate to the problem of exercise rash.
Exercise rash not only hinders your exercise for days but also makes it very difficult for you to move around in your office. God forbid, if you have inner thigh exercise rash, you may even be found walking like a penguin. Been there, done that!
The Lotion that solves all your skin problems:
When I was growing up, there was one lotion which was mentioned very frequently by my grandmoms- The Calamine lotion. My sister had acne, the solution was calamine lotion. My baby brother had a nappy rash – calamine lotion to the rescue. You have inner thigh rash because you rubbed your areas harshly as the sweat caused the itching – calamine lotion!
So now you know what to do in case you have exercise rash – Calamine lotion.
Garmi danay? You have a powder for that:
Living in one of the hottest parts of the globe, our skin is very sensitive to heat. Garmi danay is a story of every household. You were warned by your grandparents, not to go out in heat, but you went anyway, and now you have garmi danay all over your body. These are very common when you exercise in the scorching heat.
We all have Prickly heat powder at our places. Sprinkle some on your body and all the garmi will be gone before you even know it. But beware! Prickly heat powder can make you dance like crazy because of the cold if you put too much on your body.
You may even get sunburns because of the intense sunlight in summers. The best totka that is used in every brown household is: Haldi+Basin+Milk. You will see your burns vanishing in a blink.
Clothes – Weather and body friendly:
We may get fascinated by the tights and stretchies that angrez wear for their exercises. But we must not forget that there is a huge difference in weather. Our summers are hot enough to evaporate an angrez easily. If in these summers you wear tights and stretchies you are most likely to get a horrible exercise rash.
You may have heard your grandparents saying “Hawa laya kar apnay aap nu. Garmi baari ayy”. We must wear clothes that are made from cotton or any other breathable material. Not only your pajamas should be breathable, but your socks and shirts too.
If you have any trouble figuring out which exercise your body requires and what diet plan you must follow, you should hire your own personal exercise coach from Nutright. They shall guide you as per your requirements.
