Skin Care for Pool TIme

One of the best parts of summer is hanging out by the pool all day. It's such a great way to cool off and enjoy the warmth of the summer sun. However, it's not a great way to keep your skin healthy without the right protection. You want to take special skin care steps to protect yourself. Your skin can be at risk for a lot of damage during the summer months. Here are some tips geared toward spending the day at the pool to help keep your skin healthy.

Protect Yourself From Chlorine

Chemicals on your skin are never a good thing, but it's hard to avoid in chlorine pools. One way to combat the amount that seeps into your skin is to rinse off before and after you hop in the pool. Rinsing beforehand can reduce the amount absorbed. Rinsing afterwards can rinse off any excess water with chemicals in it so your skin is rid of the chlorine on the surface of your skin.

Hydrate Your Skin

Did you know that dehydration can actually decrease your body's ability to carry out its natural defenses? Both the chlorine and the sun are really damaging to your skin so it's best to stay hydrated while you are out in the sun. Drink plenty of water and try to lessen your intake of caffeine and alcohol.

Not only does your body need hydrating, but so does your skin. The chemicals from the water plus the exposure to the sun can dry out your skin, so when you get out, apply a moisturizer while your skin is still damp. If you swim often it's a good idea to use a cream moisturizer for extra hydration. A great product for this is Epionce Extreme Barrier Cream.

Don't forget about your face when it comes to providing hydration to your dry skin. Obagi Hydrate Facial Moisturizer is the perfect product for this because of its amazing formula that continues to gradually release moisture throughout the day to keep your skin soft and smooth.

Protect Yourself from Sun Damage

The most critical protection your skin needs is from the damage the sun can cause. There truly is no such thing as a healthy tan. The UV rays of the sun can cause early aging with fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. It's important to apply sunscreen and reapply it often when you are swimming.
