Hi Dean, they say chlorine is very good for it. After you swim and then shower, use a moisturizer on your skin to soften it up.

I put Coconut oil on before a chlorine dip, it stops the dryness.

I try to avoid chlorine Dean. Salt water is much better for my skin ... I tend to have little or no reaction.

Hi Dean, my skin loves salt water pools to the point where if I spend a couple of hours swimming they almost go....but as soon as I get in chlorine my skin breaks out and I'm so itchy....I try to avoid chlorine and if I do come in contact with it I find qv body lotion relieves it and reduces inflammation.

I'm currently thinking about trying wild water swimming as I was thinking it would be better for my skin and I can wear a full body wet suit but then comes the challenge of taking it off without exposing my skin think I would get very funny looks if I tried to drive home wearing a wet a suit !!!! I really miss swimming but I'm not brave enough to wear a costume in public 😩

I have recently tried the massage cream made by SIX Cosmetics, a Spa line and it soothes but my opinion is that Coconut Oil works well for me, a tablespoon twice s day snd massaging my hands as much as possible. Wherever you all be happy and get better soon ❤️🌹

I never go near chlorinated pools. It's one of the worst things for P. If at all possible got to a salt-treated pool. Or better yet the beach. And, if you are able to get a P treatment in the Dead Sea (Israel) or to the Blue Lagoon (Iceland), do it. Did wonders for my skin.

I find if I go in the pool my skin gets a little better. The sun and chlorinated water r fine. I use a very thick lotion when I get out
