It was quite difficult to decide the topic for my first blog but SUMMER is definitely on my mind. When talking about summer all i think of is Splish, Splash, Sploom! Taking a dip in a pool of cold water, but making a splash can show its effects on your skin and hair if you do not take ample care before and after your swim.
While swimming is on your mind, also in the back of your head you might be worried about the coming “Tan”. Well, not anymore as all you need to do is take care of some teeny-tiny things & Prevent tanning as well as other skin problems.
- Make sure you always shower before and after you hit the pool
- Use waterproof sunscreen prior to swimming.
- Keep yourself hydrated. Drink atleast 2 glasses of water before swimming to maintain natural moisture of the skin
- Wear eye/ear gears and shower caps as it protects against fungal infections by chlorinated water
