When I called Chicken Face to tell him, he laughed then questioned my fidelity.
You see, last Saturday I got my very first wetsuit hicky…I mean wetsuit burn.
I’m usually pretty good about lathering up with some sort of Body Glide – I’ve even swam in my wetsuit completely without it. But oooh have I learned my lesson: USE SOME SORT OF GLIDE WITH YOUR WETSUIT!
I’ve heard of people using everything any of these products and more to help:
- Around your neck
- Around your shoulders
- On your wrist
- On your ankles
- Legs, ankles, arm…hell, just dunk your body in a giant tube of Vaseline.
Not only will it help prevent the burn, but it will also help you get your wetsuit off quicker.
Oh and side note, you won’t realize you got a wetsuit burn until you’re in the shower – when it buuuuuurns!
What product do you use? Any helpful tricks and tips?
