10 Simple Solutions To Stop Your Thighs From Chafing

Here’s the thing about summer, it’s great obviously, but there are a lot of things about it that are less than amazing.

The sweating is pretty unbearable, humidity is kind of awful, and no matter how well you do your makeup it’ll sweat off by the end of the day.

But by far one of the most inconvenient parts about summer is the fact that wearing shorts and dresses means that your thighs will end up rubbing together.

I guess you can wear dresses all year long, but it’s twice as bad in the summer because the heat makes you sweat, and when your thighs rub together it becomes an immediate and painful situation.

Some people call it the “chub rub” but let’s be honest here, it doesn’t matter how thin you are, chances are your thighs touch to some degree.

It happens to us all, but there are a few things you can do to make it less terrible.

We can’t all get out to buy the fancier options, so in a pinch deodorant can actually work pretty well! Dermatologist Dr. Julie Tzu says “As long as the skin is completely normal (ie. no irritation, inflammation, or open areas), it is not unsafe to apply antiperspirant on the thighs.”

It might not be the best option, but if you’re out and about and have no other choice, it can prevent you from getting a rash.

They make a few different brands for runners and athletes like Glide and Sport Shield are basically like a deodorant stick but specifically formulated to prevent any rashes from forming while you walk around on a hot day. They are a lot more sweat proof than deodorant so it’s definitely the better option.

It may seem strange, but a lot of people swear by Monistat’s chafing relief product. Apparently beauty bloggers use it as a makeup primer sometimes because it prevents sweating.

If you don’t want to rub something on your skin, they make these cute little bands that slip onto your thigh. Think of a garter but wider and honestly, a lot prettier. They come in lacy patterns that look super cute and don’t rub off.

There are actually some companies that have realized this issue, and made some sleek shorts out of the same fabric as your underwear. It kind of looks like shape wear, except instead of crushing your body, they just sit nicely over top.

A cheaper alternative that is similar to these would get some long boxer briefs or bike shorts. They won’t necessarily be as clean of a fit and you might get some lines under your dress, but if it’s a loose fitting fabric it doesn’t matter anyways!

Try to find one that is cornstarch-based instead of talc-based, but the powder will do wonders when it comes to absorbing moisture. It also can help soothe any left over irritation from the day before if you forgot to protect yourself.

The name of the product is a little out there, but it’s a cheap and effective way that a lot of people swear by. It absorbs sweat like baby powder, but even better because it lasts way longer.

This one is kind of a last resort option, but it’ll help your thighs glide a bit better. The downside is that it’s really greasy so you may not be all that comfortable. It is however a good trick for soothing chafed skin

If all else fails and you end up chafed and red, a good ol’ antibacterial ointment is your best bet to quick healing and happy thighs.

So to all of you out there who are struggling to stay cool and comfortable this summer, good luck, and put these tips to good use!

Another big concern that we all have in the summer is bug bites. For an easy way to recognize what go you, check out this easy guide.

There are also a lot of health conditions you should watch out for in the summer, because even though it’s supposed to be summer fun we still need to be careful!
