How Body Glide can Save Runners from Chafing and Blisters

Any serious runner knows it — friction is one of the greatest threats to your enjoyment and performance.

When that friction affects your feet, annoying, nasty, and frankly painful blisters result, and when it strikes almost any other part of your body, you're dealing with chafing. Unless you've experienced it for yourself, it's pretty much impossible to realize how extensive and painful these clusters of microscopic skin tears can be-- and how they can bring you down during a race.

Runners can, of course, do a lot to help prevent chafing and blisters, starting with choosing the right pair of running shoes and socks and arming themselves with the anti-chafing underwear that's now on the market. However, the harsh reality remains that the exact kinds of repetitive motions that lead to excessive and prolonged friction are an integral part of running.

Wouldn't it be great if there was some cream, or something, to take all that friction away? Well, that's what Body Glide products offer. How exactly can Body Glide save runners from chafing and blisters? Where and how often should you apply it? Let's dive into this exciting product line that aims to "stop trouble before it starts"!


What’s Body Glide?

Called "Body," Body Glide's original anti-chafing, anti-blister balm comes in a user-friendly stick. It's packed with goodies that form a much-needed line of defense against friction-- allowing your clothing to slide over your skin instead of cutting into it. It's neat to know that the ingredients are natural and vegan, as well as allergen-free, but ambitious runners will be happy to know that Body is water-resistant — which means sweat-resistant, too.

Although Body may be all a runner needs to prevent problems they’ve been dealing with for a very long time, Body Glide additionally offers a whole line of equally exciting products. Some, like Foot Glide, Outdoor, and For Her, are just as useful for runners. Cyclists will benefit from Saddle Glide, meanwhile, and in this day and age, anyone could be saved some trouble by trying out Face Glide — which, as you may have guessed, stops your face masks f=om causing painful friction.


Where and When Should Runners Apply Body Glide?

Hit all the hot spots that usually suffer from friction as you run before getting your running gear on. Experienced runners will already be way too familiar with them — the feet, of course, but also the groin, buttocks, inner thighs, armpits (oh, the armpits!), chest, including nipples, and the neck and shoulders. All products from the Body Glide line come in colorful, handsome, and user-friendly containers, and most are simple sticks. All you need to do is rub it in to stop rubbing in all the wrong places!

You won't need to bothered with constantly reapplying Body Glide products, as they'll last you through your run, and you don't need to be anxious that Body Glide will stain your favorite running gear either, as the products don't get greasy. Finally, even though Body Glide products are water and sweat-resistant and won't come off while you're running, all you need to wash them away is simple soap.
