1. Going in for the block:
There are several blister prevention sticks available on the market designed to create an invisible barrier on the skin, like Band-Aid Active Friction Block Stick ($6) or Bliss Problem Salved ($18). But first thing's first: wear shoes that fit. Anything too loose or too tight is just asking for it.
2. My pad or yours?:
Lots of antiblister products contain cushions or gel pads to put a serious blockade around your feet essentially trying to mimic a blister likeBand-Aid Advanced Healing Blister ($5) or Dr. Scholl's Blister Treatment ($5). As an added bonus, all these products can also be worn over pre-existing blisters. For the truly serious stiletto-wearing gal, there are also a variety of specially shaped pads to keep your feet in check, like Foot Petals's Stiletto Survival Kit ($38).
3. Lube up:
When in a pinch, a touch of petroleum jelly or baby powder applied to problem areas can help put a stop to blistering.
