It's hot. Really hot. And while that means celebrations for many, it also means agg for a large proportion of the female population who will be welcoming back the old, familiar nemesis that is thigh chafing.

Chafing thighs and underboob sweat are quite possibly two of the most annoying things to come out of a hot summer. And while nobody's complaining here about warm weather, it is known to get so bad for some people that they will avoid leaving the safety of an air conditioned room at all costs.

So what can we do about it? How can we end these days of thigh-rubbing, boob-sweating misery? According to some very enthusiastic people on Twitter, you could try an 87p wonder-cream from Asda, which may just end up revolutionising your summer.

'Liquid Talc' (which, as you might imagine, is a talcum powder alternative in liquid form) is part of Asda's 'Little Angels' baby skincare range. But while it might be designed to enhance the softness of a newborn's skin (as if they need any help), it's also been suggested that it can work wonders in preventing thigh chafing and underboob sweating.

When comedian Sarah Millican last year questioned on Twitter whether the skin under her boobs would "ever be dry again" in the midst of a hot summer, she was flooded with recommendations - including this little dime from Asda.

"Liquid talc. That’s what I use for my underboob," replied one follower - and it seems they're certainly not the only one on Twitter to have recommended this specific product.

Asda Little Angels Liquid Talc has also received a few moments of glory on the social network when it comes to people suggesting ways to prevent thigh chafing.

"To gals with thiccccc thighs in this hot weather...I discovered liquid talc the other day and I [swear to God] it has changed my life, go get [you] some," wrote one person. Another user pointed followers to the supermarket's baby aisle for the exact same reason, and added what good value the product was, being priced at less than £1.

The Liquid Talc likely works in a similar way to another anti-thigh chafing trick - rolling deodorant onto the inside of your thighs. The slick layer it creates allows them to easily slip past each other, as opposed to causing painful friction every time your thighs rub together.

So who knows? Maybe it's worth a try. And at 87p, it's probably not going to break the bank.
