Must Know Skin & Hair Tips For Swimmers
I love swimming all year around since it’s great exercise since you are able to burn more calories without the hard pounding on the joints and muscles. Here I have a few pointers to help you protect the skin and hair from chlorine damage.
- Pre-rinse: Washing your hair before dipping into the pool hydrates the top layer of your hair which keeps it from drying out. Rinsing your hair helps prevent damaging chemicals from getting soaked up and ruining your luscious locks. A helpful alternative can be conditioning your hair with coconut oil or a silicone based hair serum.
- Cleanse: Carbonated soda and fresh citrus juices detox your hair and remove chlorine, impurities, and salt.
- Post-rinse: Don’t hold off on rinsing off after a swim. Take your time to let the fresh water wash off all the chlorine from your skin to avoid the chance of any skin irritation.
When it comes down to your skin you have to follow the golden rule of ‘always use SPF’ during any outdoor activity. Sun protection that contains zinc oxide is an anti-inflammatory compound that offers water-resistant sun protection. Normally any SPF lasts for 40 minutes so be sure reapply generously.

Dr. Jacqueline Schaffer-Stichter is an American entrepreneur and businesswoman, and author of the International Best Selling book, How to Get Clear Skin, a complete, medically sound, guide to skincare, and dietary guidelines that affect the skin.
Motivations and Beginnings
After completing medical school, Jacqueline affected deeply by her mother’s contraction of Skin Cancer for a second time – and the fact this affliction was partially attributed to harsh and toxic ingredients found in beauty and skincare products. Shocked by this fact, and determined to prevent this from happening to other women, Jacqueline researched the beauty product industry in depth – learning about the origins of the packaging the products came in, the supply chain involved in creating a product, and most importantly, the exact molecular composition of each and every ingredient in the products being marketed today.
As she discovered more about the impact of this process, she became even more determined to change how these products were made, distributed, and to educate women about the dangers and toxicity in some of the beauty and skincare products available. This led her to develop her own natural skincare product line, Schique, producing and distributing natural and ethically sound beauty and skincare products.
