You shouldn’t have to hide away inside with the air conditioning to avoid summer thigh chafing. But what can you do to prevent it?

Change out of wet swimwear

Summer months are made for spending on beaches or at the pool. But if you suffer from chafing, you probably already know that wet swimwear can cause a chafing nightmare. While it’s tempting to hang out in your bathing suit all day, it’s better to change into dry clothes. Wet clothes rub against the skin and cause chafing between the thighs and around the buttocks. Changing after you swim and drying your skin will help prevent summer chafing.

Try anti-chafing shorts
