Just imagine, it’s a warm sunny day. You are wearing your favorite t-shirt, shorts, and sneakers walking around enjoying the day when you suddenly start to feel some irritation on your thighs. You try to ignore it but you notice that the irritation is just getting worse. You are trying not to scratch but for the moment, scratching is the only form of relief that you have. You scratch so much that your skin becomes red and raw and that just adds to the pain. When you finally reach your destination, you sit there and think “What the heck just happened and how can I stop it from happening again?!”
If you have ever gone through this then you have experienced the awful act of chafing. Chafing, more commonly known as “chub rub,” is when your skin rubs together causing friction that can cause redness, irritation, and discomfort. This can happen on just about any part of your body but is most common in the thigh area. As someone who has/does experience this frequently, I have tried using just about everything and anything to help prevent this from happening. One thing I discovered is that our natural deodorant cream works well to soothe the irritation that chafing causes. From the numerous articles that I read about chafing, one life-hack is to use deodorant to help soothe your skin and prevent the chafing from starting in the first place.
The good thing about our deodorant is that our formula uses 11 essential oil that has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties that can help protect your skin. I went through a pretty bad chafing episode recently. It was so bad that the affected areas on my body were red, raw, and so painful that I could not walk. I used my PiperWai Trial Size jar and added the deodorant to the areas that were affected. After about 10 minutes, my skin was feeling a lot better and I did not have any chafing for the rest of the day.
I’ve used other deodorants before to stop my chafing but our PiperWai Natural Deodorant Cream is the only one that has actually worked well with my skin. It rubs onto my skin clearly and unlike other deodorants that I’ve used, it does not leave a residue on my skin that will get on my clothes.
Our Natural Cream Deodorant has natural ingredients, smells great and can be used on more than just your armpits.
Now, this is just an option that you can try. If your chafing is severe (bleeding, discoloration, swelling or crusting), then we recommend calling your doctor immediately.
