It's Like A Second Skin: SKINS Compression Tights Review & Giveaway

This summer I have vowed to be more active and creative with my fitness and so far, so good.  I even took to Katy Trail, located in Dallas, Texas for a run - or really fast walk if I am being totally transparent. This also gave me a chance to try out a new pair of  SKINS DNAmic compression tights.

It seems like all of the cool kids are indulging in compression this or compression that and I just hadn’t fallen into the hype but, I was still excited to give them a test drive.  At first glance I wasn’t super thrilled with the design but once I ventured into my closet I found that they really pop and pair well with a a variety of colors which is always a win for me as I have been know to rock my favorite tights to death. I mean, I am here for the workout, not necessarily a fashion show, but being able to look cute while being a sweaty mess is a bonus!

According to the SKINS website, scientific studies pretty much make SKINS compression a must-try as they “improves venous return, reduces exercise induced muscle damage, accelerates recovery, removes lactic acid faster, increases strength and power, improves endurance, enhances muscle oxygenation, improves body temperature control, and reduces in-flight ankle edema.”  The DNAmic technology was developed to deliver specific levels of compression to active muscles.

So, did these beauties live up to their reputation?


I can’t say they made me run faster but in terms of improving body temperature I would definitely give them a thumbs up.   Despite the ever-changing Texas weather, I maintained a comfortable temp and was able to enjoy and finish my run/walk.  These literally felt like a second skin and I can not wait to try more of their products. I would advise you to order a size up from your normal size because they run a bit small.
