Summer isn’t always the big guy’s best friend. High temperatures, humidity, and hot sun combine to make spending a day outside rather uncomfortable. Today, we’re going to cover something we get a ton of questions from Chubstr readers about: how to avoid heat rash and chafing.
Look, heat rash can be an issue for people of any size, but bigger guys tend to have more parts that rub together. This can mean that you end up with gnarly love handle, thigh, chest, armpit, or back rashes that don’t always go away so easily. Luckily, there’s a product out there that helps fight heat rash, called ChafeZone for ChubRub.
How Does ChafeZone Prevent Chub Rub?
ChafeZone helps prevent chafing caused by friction. Just apply the anti-chafe balm stick to whatever areas are prone to heat rash before you head out for the day, and you’re good to go. It acts as a lubricant that provides an anti-friction barrier. Once it’s applied, you can’t see it, and the smell is so light, you won’t even notice you put it on.
Whether you’re heading to the gym or to the beach, take ChafeZone with you and apply it when you need it. Since the product was created by sports medicine pros, people who deal with problems like this on a regular basis, you know it’s going to work.
Putting it to the Test
The first time I tried ChafeZone was during a workout. I applied it to my underarms, chest and thighs. I noticed a clean, slightly medicinal smell that went away as soon as I put my clothes on. After an hour of repetitive motion, there was no problem – it got the job done.
I tried it a second time while spending the day doing yard work, and it worked like a charm. I applied it to my thighs and my underarms, and got down to business. 5 hours of mowing, shearing, and mulching later, and I was chafe free. I was worried that it would make me over lubricated, but that wasn’t an issue. The balm offers just enough lubrication to keep you from getting friction without being too much.
