Waist training is effective in getting inches off your waistline, and wearing a waist trainer is probably one of the fastest ways to getting that sexy curve on your body. But there are a few side effects of waist training. One of them is getting the itch.
Itchiness usually happens after you take off your waist cincher, although not everyone experiences it. It is caused by sweat and heat when wearing your waist trainer. It can also be because of dry skin.
Don’t worry though. The itchiness should go away after a few weeks of wearing your waist trainer.
Itchiness and back acne are common when waist training, especially for people with very sensitive skin. However, if it feels and looks like an allergy already, you might want to have it checked by a doctor.
Here are ways you can avoid the itch.
- Wash your new waist cinchers first before putting them on.
- Wear a thin cotton shirt before putting your Curves Waist Cincher on. This will help protect your skin from the effects of heat and sweat.
- Moisturise your body. Don’t put lotion when waist training, though. Put lotion after you’re done wearing your waist garment for the day and after a nice bath.
- You can also put powder (we suggest mild baby powder) on your skin before wearing your top and waist trainer. This will help prevent moisture build up.
- Maintain good hygiene. Wash your waist cincher regularly, not only when it smells really bad already.
