Products needed to be applied whilst being out for a long time ….

Body glide or other anti chaffe solution
Sun protection
Baby oil (!)

If I put on sun protection (P20) leave it to brew(!) then apply something else will this inhibit the sun protection?

Or should I put sun protect on after applying other stuff?

I would imagine sun protection first

Alternatively, buy the version of Bodyglide that has added SPF30 for a 2 in 1 solution :-)

I try to use clothing to stop chaffing.

Sunscreen of choice for me is dermatologist made Altruist. It's cheap, a PPD of 54 for the factor 50 which is very high.

Mixing stuff on top of or under sunscreen is not recommended - like oils or moisturiser. They have some info on their FAQ & blog:

altruistsun.com

Not sure what the baby oil is for? I'd imagine the parts that chaffe, aren't likely to be in full sun?

baby oil makes getting wetsuit on/off sooo much easier!
I then use Udderly smooth chamois cream which I also use at the bottom of my shorts to minimise rub (yeah I'm chubby!) when out for hours
I'm doing an iron distance tri so talking 17 hrs.
the body glide is round my neck to reduce stop wetsuit rubbing too

Oh, I didn't know triathlon was the focus. Doesn't oil damage the neoprene?

Good luck. Some sunscreens are oily so might serve two purposes. I'd wear it in the winter to keep the chill off.

Got something to say?
