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

Excellent

Very Comfortable, invisible under sport tights. Definitely the best choice to go for.

Very happy

Was a little sceptical at first as they didn’t look any different but having just done a longer run without any problems I’m converted!!

Men's Runderwear Boxer Short

Great product , very comfortable and suits my active lifestyle.

Anti Blister socks

These are really good, comfortable socks for running with. They have relieved some of the foot numbness that I get whilst running, so for that alone, a great big thumbs up! However, if I wear them with my cycling shoes, they make the shoes too tight on my feet and cause some discomfort, not intolerable, but enough to make me not want to wear them for cycling.

So, great for running, not so good for cycling.

Perfect for UAE summer

Zero chafing on short and long runs in the stifling heat of a UAE summer.
