For people who love to work out, chafing can be really painful and uncomfortable. It is a skin condition caused by friction and moisture. Successive chafing can cause open wounds and can irritate your skin really bad. Chafing can affect a personís ability to perform at his best. To avoid this from happening to you, always take preventive measures. Here are some tips to help you.

Tip 1: Make it a habit to bathe before you work out. Accumulating salt crystals on your skin as a result from previous sweat increases your chances of chafing. Take a shower to help you acquire clean skin. A quick lukewarm shower should do the trick.

Tip 2: Apply powder to body parts that are prone to sweating and chafing. These include inner thighs, neck, feet, and armpits. Use a good amount of powder of these areas to keep them dry.

Tip 3: Drink plenty of water before you workout. Drinking glasses of water while youíre on your workout also helps. Consume at least one gallon of water supply every day. A good amount of water will allow you to sweat freely. This prevents the formation of salt crystals on your skin and; therefore, prevents chafing as well.

Tip 4: Wear proper outfit. Instead of wearing loose-fitting shorts, opt for bike shorts instead. Choosing snug-fitting clothes can prevent your skin from chafing instead of loose clothes.

Tip 5: Rub a lubricant onto your thighs. Do this before doing any activity. Lubricants like petroleum jelly, commercial sport skin creams or udder creams can help skin glide without friction or rubbing.
