#StyleHack: Never Get a Blister Again With This Genius Trick

New shoes are fantastic. New blisters from said shoes? Not so fantastic. Thankfully, we’ve discovered a smart way to save your feet when you’re breaking in a new shoe purchase. Simply rub clear gel deodorant over the area, let it dry, and slip on your shoes. The deodorant will provide an invisible barrier between your skin and the shoe, as well as provide a very light lubrication to prevent friction—way better than an unsightly Band-Aid!
