Summer is here and with it come beach days and pool parties. But chafing due to friction from your bathing suit can become a real problem that will quickly ruin a day of fun in the sun for kids and adults alike. Many companies have sprouted up offering solutions to address the problem of chafing from being in a swimsuit all day, offering what they describe as “anti-chafe swimwear”. These companies offer swimsuits and bikinis that aim to reduce the amount of chafing that is caused by rough seams, and utilizing different materials that reduce friction around areas that often shift and move when swimming or being physically active. But what if there is a better way? What if you can address the problem of swimsuit chafing without having to purchase a new swimsuit – but rather, make all of your swimwear “anti-chafe swimwear”?
Using Body Glide® balms is the only way to keep you chafe-free by reducing the amount of friction caused by abrasive fabrics, and other irritants you encounter like salt and sand.
Salt & Sand: The Main Culprits
When it comes to chafing, it’s all about moisture & friction. Moisture from a dip in the water or sweat combined with the friction of your clothing causes unsightly, painful chafing. Anti-chafe swimwear seeks to address this issue with their use of flatter inseams and less abrasive fabrics, but these do nothing to help with the two biggest culprits of summertime chafing – salt & sand.
These irritants love to bunch up in your most sensitive areas – between the thighs and groin, along your waistband, and in areas along your torso, breasts, arms. While you are active and moving they work together slowly wearing down your skin until nothings left but an unsightly rash or blister. This is where Body Glide® family of products are more effective than “anti-chafe swimwear”.
