It’s a hot, sticky, humid day in the city and you are faced with the inevitable task of getting ready in the morning and putting on your cute new summer romper. If you are like me, which many women are, you are faced with the day to day battle of your legs rubbing/burning together during the summer months. My sister (bless her humour) called it “CHUB RUB” to me once and that name has stuck. Turns out, everyone has been calling it that. After years of suffering, I finally got a handle on it! Here are my top picks for the best products to battle your chub rub this summer and beyond!
Jockey Cooling Summer Slip Shorts
My all time GO-To product for battling #ChubRub is the Jockey Cooling Summer Slip Short. I buy these in multiple colours. I love to have a black and nude colour depending on the look. Jockey Cooling Summer Slip Shorts $28 from The Bay.
Thigh Rescue by Megababe
I was just introduced to Thigh Rescue by Megababe, and I’m hooked! This product is all natural and not tested on animals. Cute packaging and rave reviews, what’s not to love! Thigh Rescue by Megababe, $14.00.
If you prefer something a bit more on the sporty side, runners swear by this mini stick. I love throwing this in my bag for emergencies or travel. Bodyglide Women’s Anti-Blister & Anti-Chafing Balm, $12 at Sport Chek.
Chamois Butt’r Original Anti-Chafe Cream
If a stick isn’t your jam and you prefer a lotion, this Chamois Butt’r cream is a dream. Chamois Butt’r Original Anti-Chafe Cream, $23 from Amazon.
Lush Silky Underwear
Powder dusting can be another luxurious option if you want something lighter. Lush Silky Underwear is a beautiful jasmine infused cornstarch and clay based powder. Silky Underwear, $10.95 at Lush locations.
Classic Baby Powder
If it’s good enough for a baby’s bottom, it’s good enough for your firey thighs, classic baby powder made with corn starch is a great economical and basic solution. Johnson’s Baby Pure Cornstarch Powder with Soothing Aloe Vera and Vitamin E., $4.95 at local drugstores.
Lucas Papaw Cream
This product might be hard to get your hands on but if you can, it’s totally worth it. I find that it’s great for after care. Paw Paw ointment is great for minor burns and rashes. Lucas Papaw Ointment, $13.50 on Amazon.
