How effective and safe to use are liniments like tiger balm to warm up feet after water sports?
I've tried massaging or walking / running after drying feet and putting warm socks, but it didn't help much. The feet keep feeling 'hard' and a bit uncomfortable while driving.
Are liniments an effective way to stimulate blood circulation in cold feet? Or there are some dangers using them after the contact with cold water, like the risk of damaging the skin?
Just to prevent answers pointing in the wrong direction, the problem is specific for feet. This is because my feet have contact with the surface, in the activity that is oriented on the core and arms, and legs are more idle. But it's not specific to the situation. If you do a long hike in snow in wet shoes, you have the same problem. No general hypothermia problem, but very cold feet.
