Swimming daily can be tough on both your hair and skin due to the chlorine and bromine found in pool water. These pool chemicals bond to your skin, making it have that unpleasant pool odor. After bonding to your skin, they may cause itchiness and irritation. If you already have hypersensitive skin from a pre-existing condition such as psoriasis, eczema, or dermatitis, exposure to chlorine or bromine will make it worse.
Luckily, you can do a few things to prevent and protect your skin from these chemicals when you swim daily. Here are two excellent tips on how to take care of your skin and avoid having any adverse side effects.
1. Use a pre-swim body lotion.
Specialized pre-swim body lotions like Pre & Post Swim Body Lotion create a protective layer around your skin to neutralize the absorption of pool chemicals, preventing any potential adverse side effects. If you use our body lotion after swimming, the Argan Oil and Vitamin B5 in our formula will restore your healthy skin. The Shea Butter and Almond Oil, also present, will hydrate and calm dry and itchy skin.2. Use an after-swim body wash.
After you finish swimming, you should take a shower to remove chlorine or bromine from your skin. A specialized body wash like After-Swim Body Wash helps extract pool chemicals and saltwater from your skin by breaking through the "Chlorine Cover." If you use our body wash after swimming, its Coconut and Almond Oils will hydrate and rejuvenate dry skin. At the same time, the blend of Chamomile extract and Menthol (Peppermint Extract) will calm irritated skin post-workout.3. Use an after-swim face wash.
The skin on our faces is known for being the most sensitive. This is why pool chemicals are likely to impact it even more. The Swim & Sun Face Wash gently and effectively removes chlorine and other chemicals. If you swim in an outdoor pool or the ocean, it will also calm and relieve any discomfort experienced after exposure to UV rays.
