Swimming pool is one of the most effective types of physical activity. Swimming helps to keep the body in good shape, to get rid of not only extra pounds, but also various diseases. However, those people who regularly visit the swimming pool very often face skin problems. Dryness, peeling, itching are quite common. It happens due to the chlorinated water, without which the swimming pool does not function.
What harm does the chlorine cause to the skin?
Despite the fact that we live in the age of advanced technologies, there is no more efficient and reliable way of water disinfection than its chlorination. The chlorine reliably kills fungal and other infections, which are common in crowded places. This element reacts with lipids, proteins and salts secreted by our skin. The result of such reaction is the formation of a dense foreign plaque destroying not only the skin lipid layer and causing excessive dryness, but also significantly affecting the deep inside processes. As a result, the skin experiences not only dryness, but also premature aging.

How to take care of your skin after swimming pool
The main task after visiting the swimming pool is to rinse off the chlorine as quickly as possible and neutralize the effect of harmful elements. At the same time, remember that you should use the washcloth and products of light abrasive action, which remove the chlorine plaque together with dead cells. Shower gels based on essential oils and glycerin will be a great way out. In addition to cleansing, they also nourish and moisturize the epidermis.
After cleansing, you should restore and moisturize the skin. Use saturated nutrient products. Creams with essential oils, which restore, nourish and moisturize the skin, provide a complex effect:
