Most articles about taking the pain out of painting concern themselves with such things as using good tools, selecting good paint, doing your prep work, and painting techniques. While these concerns speak to painting better and making painting less frustrating, they really don’t address physical pain and how to take it out of painting. So, let’s talk about that.
Painting is hard work make no mistake about it. Holding a brush against a wall, extending your arm over your head, and reaching for those just out of reach places tire your arm muscles out. This is where compression arm sleeves can be a painter’s friend. The compression of arm sleeves improves circulation and blood flow to the muscles in your arms keeping them relaxed and fresh.
In addition to compression benefits, the cooling technology of compression arm sleeves keeps your arms cool and comfortable as if they are in air conditioning. For outside painting, this will keep the directly UV rays of the sun off of your skin and as you perspire your arms actually cool down.
Paint is toxic. And even if you buy a eco-friendly low toxicity paint, the paint pigment that is added to your paint to give it color can be highly toxic. If the chemicals in paint get on your skin, it can cause allergic reactions and if you have an open cut or sore, this can lead to more serious allergic contact dermatitis in which case itching, burning, hives, and blistering may occur. And in some cases, eczema can even occur away from the original area of contact. Wearing arm sleeves when you paint will keep the paint off your skin protecting your arms from the potential harmful effects of paint toxicity.
While you paint as well as afterwards, compression arm sleeves help your sore arm muscles to recover faster as the de-oxygenated blood circulates back quicker to the heart. This reduces soreness and fatigue and gives your arm muscles that restored, fresh, relaxed feeling.
Whether you are a professional painter, handyman, or just a home owner embarking upon your next home improvement project, slip on a pair of quality compression arm sleeves. They will help take the pain out of painting.
