Where, and how, to apply your chamois cream is a topic rarely discussed, so let us help you out with some tips. With VeloSkin, one good three fingered scoop is all you need to keep riding in comfort for a full day in the saddle. Some cyclists prefer to use it on their chamois pad in their shorts, whereas others apply it directly to their skin. You’ll quickly find which you prefer.
Top tip from us Go for both. That way you're less likely to miss anywhere and you're guaranteed a comfortable ride.
When applying it to your shorts, start at the seams of your chamois pad as this is the area more likely to cause you irritation. From here, work your way in towards the centre of your chamois pad using a circular motion. This works the cream into all the creases and nooks and crannies that are created when you’re wearing your bibs.
When applying it to your skin, pretty much the same applies. Focus on any areas where you're likely to get skin-on-skin contact, or skin-on-pad contact.
With you for the ride…
