If you want to ensure you dont get blisters in the first place this tip really does help. Pre-emptively use compeed or similar cushioned dressing on high-risk areas of feet / (or whatever hot spots you are trying to stop the blister occurring). If you know you usually get a blister say on your toe or heel put the compeed around the area before you go hiking, before the blister has had a chance to form.

What You'll Need

  • Compeed or equivalent (however, I really rate Compeed as brand)

What You'll Do

  • Apply compeed or equivalent to the high risk areas.
  • Make sure the area is fully dry before you put it on
  • And make sure that there are no air bubbles
