Chafed Thighs — Summer’s Bane

God, it’s hot. 

A girl’s best friend in this weather is the skirt.  It’s cute and has built-in air conditioning.  But it’s not always the most comfortable choice of clothing if you’re carrying around some extra weight.  I’m talking about chafing — the result of your (and my) meaty thighs rubbing together.

Some of my friends opt to never wear a skirt in the summer because they want to avoid the pain and redness.  Others, will suffer through the heat wearing Spanx just so they don’t have to wear pants.  I’ve come up with a different solution.

Say bye-bye to chafing!

Head to your local sporting goods store and buy the anti-chafing roll-ons or sticks that they sell for runners.  Rub it on your thighs…and voila!  No more chafing.  Seriously.  I have two different brands at home.  One is like solid stick deodorant (Body Glide).  The other is like a roll-on deodorant (Sport Shield).  I prefer the roll-on.  It glides on more easily and lasts longer, although it is slightly oiler than the stick version.  Neither stains my clothing or has an offensive smell.

I also use it on my feet.  You know those cute summer shoes that always end in blisters?  Just apply this stuff to those areas where you usually get the blisters and I swear your feet will survive unscathed.

So try it!  After the first summer outing, you’ll wonder why this stuff isn’t mass marketed towards women instead of just athletes!
