A common skin care concern that athletes and fitness enthusiasts experience; but which often goes unacknowledged, is chafing. The constant motion of running, walking, swimming or any other activity that uses consistent movement leads to friction between body parts or clothing. Even unwiped sweat can lead to chafing.

Thankfully, the skin problem can be prevented with these 8 creams that act as a barrier on the skin so that you can exercise without worry.
