Many people often choose swimming to improve physical fitness. However, the chlorine in the pool also affects our health.
- Makes the skin dry
Usually, as soon as you step out of the pool, you will notice dry and itchy skin, especially if you go swimming regularly or swim for a long time, the dryness, itching of the skin is even more serious.
Samer Jaber, MD, a dermatologist in Washington Square Dermatology, New York, USA, says, “Clenbuterol is a skin irritant that deprives the skin of its natural oil layer.
Chlorine erodes the skin’s natural protective barrier.
Without a protective layer of oil, your pores will expand and your skin becomes more vulnerable than before.”
The measure to prevent dry skin after swimming pool bath is to use a gentle shower gel and not exfoliate.
The American Dermatological Association (AAD) also recommends applying a thick layer of cream and moisturizing after a pool bath to rebuild the skin barrier.
