Are you ready to swim yourself out in the swimming pool this coming summer? Swimming is the best way to handle the heat of the sun during the summer. It also let your body exercise as the muscles all around your body moves whenever you move under the water, assuming that you’re not just dipping yourself and just relaxing under the sun. It’s also a good way to get a tan. If you haven’t notice it yet, when you go swimming in the pool under the sun, your body accumulates a tan color because of the heat of the sun. Without any effort, you can get that sun-kissed skin tone you like easy. The only problem you’ll have to consider is the chlorine in the pool water. It can make your skin dry as well as take away you hair’s natural moisture. Here are some tips to protect yourself from the effects of the chlorine in the pool water.
Protect you hair
- Before you go in the pool, make sure to wet your hair so that the chlorine will not totally suck out the moisture out of it.
- Apply small portions of oil in your hair for extra protection.
- You can wear bathing caps if you want to prevent your hair from getting in contact with the chlorine water.
- After you swim, make it a habit that you apply shampoo to your hair and wash away the chlorine water from it.
Protect your skin
- Before you dip your skin in the pool, make sure to use moisturizers and apply them to your skin. It’s best that you use products that are high in antioxidants that will help neutralize the chlorine’s effects.
- Make it also a habit to wash your body with soap right after you swim in order to wash away the chlorine water from your body.
- If your skin is sensitive to chlorine, apply your body with products that help minimize the chemicals of the chlorine before you enter the pool.
If you can follow these simple tips, you can enjoy swimming at the pool with no problems at all!
