How to Prevent Skin Chafe During Dance and Gymnastics

As a dancer and gymnast, I know how annoying skin chafe can be during practice or performances. To prevent this, I highly recommend choosing moisture-wicking, breathable fabrics for your workout attire. Make sure your clothing fits well and doesn't cause friction on your skin. Applying a lubricant, such as petroleum jelly, on the areas prone to chafing can also help reduce the irritation. Finally, never forget to stay hydrated, as it helps maintain your skin's natural moisture balance.
