Have you heard about an awesome product called the Handana? Their sports wristbands are made of soft, durable, Supplex Lycra fabric that allows the wearer to wipe and wick away sweat and nasal drip that’s getting in the your way. The Handana is a great product for men and women of all fitness level across a variety of sports.
The creator of the Handana is a Stevens Johnson Syndrome survivor, Katie Niemeyer. As an SJS survivor, Katie’s eyes were very sensitive. As she was training for her first marathon, she found it difficult to stay focused and motivated as sweat dripped into her eyes, burning them, and she needed a solution. Her idea was to create a high performance, fashionable sweatband for running and sports that wraps around your hand allowing you to use both sides to wipe and wick away sweat from your eyes, neck or forehead and nasal drip from your nose. You can read more about Katie’s SJS journey and the developing of the Handana here.
I wore the Handana for a Father’s Day 5k and it was great being able to wipe the sweat off my face with the back of my hand, and have it actually be absorbent! It was very unobtrusive and I almost forgot that I was wearing it. I even saw someone else wearing one!The Handana comes in a variety of sizes and colors, so there is a style for everyone!
