As I get older I can't help but reminisce about my younger years. I used to think I'd hate having gray hair and paying bills. What I didn't think was that my entire body would be filled with aches and pains just from getting out of bed. But here we are. I'm feeling guilty now for snickering at "older" people who complained about aching when I was younger.
I know I'm not the only person who aches and I'm sure there are plenty of ways it could be worse. I just wish growing up wasn't so uncomfortable! I've found a bit of relief lately with Salonpas. I used to see the commercials and get intrigued by the promise of pain relief. Then I got the opportunity to try the many different forms Salonpas comes in. I was one happy camper when that package arrived!
Salonpas has a large array of convenient pain solutions and all of them cover the aches and pains that come with adulthood. One of my personal favorites is the Salonpas® Pain Relieving Gel-Patch HOT which includes menthol. The patch starts off cool and gets warmer thanks to the Capsaicin. I love using this on my back after I've been working in the yard or deep cleaning inside. I get relief within a few minutes and there's no messy residue or smell leftover.
There are 10 Salonpas Pain Relief solutions right now. Here's a little more about them.
