3 Ways to stay Chafe Free

Posted on

Hello,

 If you are a runner or exercise enthusiast, chances are at some point you have experienced chafing.  Rubbing on the skin thats causes chafing is extremely common but do you really know what you need to do to avoid it?


Chafing can happen anywhere on the body but the thighs, groin, underarms and nipples are particularly vulnerable.

Make sure you focus on these 3 steps to make chafing a thing of the past.

1.  STAY DRY.  Wet and sweaty skin can make chafing even worse.  Make sure you stay dry and comfortable at all times by choosing the correct clothing to help this.  Runderwear™ uses a highly technical moisture-wicking fabric to help wick moisture away from your skin which prevents chafing. 

2.  NO COTTON.  To stop the risk of chafing choose synthetic fibres rather than cotton.  Cotton absorbs the moisture and keeps it close to your skin.  None of our Runderwear™ range uses Cotton because of this.

3.  CORRECT FIT.  This is very important to stay chafe free.  Choose products which work with the body that are designed to move with you.  Runderwear™ uses 8% of a high grade elastane so we can guarantee a perfect fit.  

At Runderwear™ we believe that the first layer is the most important.  We believe everyone deserves to wear the most comfortable fabrics next to their skin.  We believe in innovating to engineer the best fit needed for ultimate comfort.  We believe by doing this you will achieve more.

This is why we have a Chafe-Free, Guarantee.

Have a great week everyone,

Healthy regards, run well.

Richard, Jamie and the Runderwear™ Team

Runderwear Long Boxer

Excellent product

The Anti Blister Low-Rise Running Sock

Best Socks for Trail Running

Wore a pair during Oman Desert Marathon, only changing to a clean pair on day 5. No excessive sweating (even with the double layer) and no blister even after wearing them for almost 100km in very hot (above 40C) running condition and soft sand.
Also that double-layer gives an extra cushioning making them very comfortable for long runs on rocky trails.

Awesome Base Layer recommended for training in fresh to very cold environment

Tested the baselayer while running for 4 hours by -10C with only 1 extra layer to protect me from the wind and it kept me warm all the way. I also like to wear it for my early morning running session in the fresh Dubai winter and I don't feel to warm as it is very breathable and wicks moisture.

Perfect Baselayer

Garment material is flawless and keeps ur body warm in cold morning runs. Fit is also as per normal standards. A perfect addition to my running gear.
