What is talcum powder used for?
Talc has many uses and is a really good problem solver to have on hand.
The rule of thumb is that talcum powder is used in places where you want to avoid moisture and bad smells. Talc keeps the skin dry, smooth and absorbs moisture. It minimizes excessive sweat production and improves your scent with a pleasant aroma. It is therefore fantastic against sweat in the summer heat - e.g. on the feet, between the thighs, etc.
Talc is also good after your daily shave to give dry, smooth and fragrant skin. In some barbershops, they use talc as the last part of the shave after the aftershave has been completely absorbed into the skin. They do this to take advantage of talc's smoothing and calming effect.
Talc is really good for those who suffer from irritated and sensitive skin, or for those who tend to have oily or moist skin.
Talc is actually also good for extreme running and longer runs.. Many recommend,
that you apply talcum powder to your feet the day before a race to avoid blisters.
