How do athletes use an anti-friction cream?

The feeling of chafing is well known to athletes, but everyone wants this resolved as quickly as possible. Chafing marks are unfortunately unavoidable, especially when cycling and running. But what is the easiest way to get rid of chafing spots? Choose a good anti-chafing cream.

You can always use an anti-chafing cream, but there are a number of tips to prevent chafing:

Good sportswear

In addition to anti-chafing cream, good sportswear is also important to prevent chafing. When you exercise, it is important to wear clothing that wicks away all moisture well and the clothing must fit snugly. If you wear cotton clothing while exercising, you are more likely to experience an irritated and burning sensation. Cotton clothing moves along the skin and retains moisture.

When cycling, it is important that you choose the right cycling shorts. Choose pants with a high-quality chamois that fits tightly to your body. So choose a combination of good sportswear and an anti-chafing cream. This way you will get rid of your chafing spots quickly!

Check your saddle

This tip is only for cyclists, so if you practice another sport, you can skip this section. Cyclists generally always have an anti-chafing cream. But the position and shape of the saddle can also influence how quickly you experience chafing. Just go to a professional bicycle shop and ask for advice about your physique. Ask for the best saddle and have it adjusted immediately. In addition to the shape and position of the saddle, the material of the saddle can also play an important role. One saddle heats up faster than another saddle. This heat can cause complaints to occur more quickly. This could be a problem on long journeys. So get advice from the store and use an anti-chafing cream if complaints arise.

That was it. You now know what an anti-chafing cream is and what you can use it for. It is often also a good idea to apply the anti-chafing cream in advance in combination with our strengthening gel . Prevention is better than cure!
