It’s Sweat Week here at the Strategist, and we’ve spent it talking to skin experts, stylists, and sweaty people about everything one might need to hide, prevent, and avoid sweat. Sweating, particularly in areas that rub, like the inner thigh, can lead to chafing, which is at best irritating and at worst, painful. To figure out the best ways to avoid it we asked dermatologists, stylists, fashion bloggers and Strat staffers about their favorite products to soothe and prevent it and a clear favorite emerged: Megababe’s Thigh Rescue Stick. The thigh-saving stick looks like a tube of deodorant and creates a barrier that allows thighs to glide against each other rather than painfully rub. Our experts like that it goes on smooth, lasts for hours, and comes in nice-looking packaging that doesn’t need to be hidden or tucked away. It contains soothing and moisturizing ingredients like aloe, pomegranate oil, and grape-seed oil, and even though it was designed specifically for thighs, it can be used anywhere chafing occurs. Currently the stick is 25 percent off at Anthropologie, bringing it down from $14 to a more affordable $11.
