Thigh Chafing Hurts Like Hell – Here’s How To Prevent It
Ladies with them thunder thighs, you know this is something you feel passionate about – thigh chafing. It’s the painful, uncomfortable and rash-like thing that you get between your inner thighs.
Sometimes it can so bad that you feel crying but the stinging, burning sensation. Thigh chafing can happen for many reasons, clothes too tight or even too loose.
But chafing happens from too much movement that results in friction between the thighs. When the thighs rub together, it causes irritation to the skin – you’ll experience extreme discomfort when you chafe and then sweat. Ooooh, can you feel the sting? Here’s how you can save your thighs once and for all!
1. Wear the proper workout clothes
Experiencing thigh chafing after a workout sesh? It’s probably because your workout clothes aren’t made from a material that can absorb moisture. Also, it should not be too tight that it restricts your bottoms.
2. Check for sensitivity
You may be sensitive to that new lotion that you just purchased. This can also exacerbate chafing.
3. Put on a pair of moisture-wicking slip shorts under your summer dress
You want to wear undies that are made up of fabrics like moisture-wicking, cooling and breathable. But for goodness, avoid cotton fabrics at all cost as it soaks up sweat, making chafing inevitable. Try Thigh Society Anti-Chafing slip shorts!
