Use Less Moisturizer, Alex
Earlier, we saw what pruned hands look like after swimming 101 miles. Are you ready to see another case of extreme skin pruning? Ready or not, here you go. These are the hands of professional rower Alex Gregory after participating on the Polar Row.
The Polar Row is an ultra-endurance expedition that involves rowing over 1,251 nautical miles or about 1,440 regular miles and 2,361 kilometers. Did we mention that you’re exposed to the elements throughout the entire expedition? And that the elements are usually below freezing? Also, your hands will get all wet inside their gloves, which could lead to severe blistering and peeling?
