Instead of Baikal waters (unfortunately) pools are filled with chlorinated water. And no, not for reasons of economy. As a chemical element, chlorine is an ideal candidate for cleanliness. It not only disinfects the water by destroying bacteria, but also controls the amount of organic debris – sweat and body fat – from those very neighbors on the paths.
In addition, a one-time swim may be enough to feel the banal tightness of the skin. It’s all about the hydrolipidic film, a kind of “shield” that retains moisture in the epidermis. Chemical reagents (including chlorine) destroy this barrier. Outcome: dryness, irritation, redness, hypersensitivity. The worst-case scenario is contact irritant or allergic dermatitis. Hair is also not sweet – without proper protection, they grow dull in such water, become dry and brittle, split ends and dandruff appear.
To avoid negative consequences, we recommend applying soft cosmetics to the face and body before and after visiting the pool, which prevent the destruction of the protective skin barrier.
First, gently remove all make-up and take a shower using cleansers that do not damage the skin’s hydrolipidic mantle. Hypoallergenic make-up remover gel for active sports enthusiasts provides gentle care: moisturizes, refreshes and soothes, prevents dryness, tightness, irritation and makes the skin clean, fresh and radiant.
Shampoo-gel 2 in 1 after active sports “Moisturizing and nourishing” with aloe vera provides gentle care for hair, scalp and body. Perfectly refreshes and tones, has a pleasant aroma.
Moisturizing emulsion for face and body “Protection against chlorinated and sea water” provides intense hydration, restores smoothness, softness and elasticity to the skin.
Moisturizing face cream “Protection against chlorinated and sea water” with jojoba oil will protect the skin after visiting the pool or swimming in the sea: it will restore the natural lipid barrier, fill it with moisture and help keep it in the cells.
