Sebamed: for Olympic swimmer itchy flaky skin
Are you and your family watching the Olympics like mine?
I am so beyond crazy proud of all of the United States of America athletes! Go team USA!
Now-as I tri train, I have been in chlorine more than I would like to say-in fact I got a weird rash from my time in the chlorine.
Alas-there is a simple solution:
1. When doing alot of swimming or ever using a public swimming pool-rinse immediately, I mean immediately upon getting out of the water. Using soap would really help.
2.Apply a hydrating skin protectant creme. Now for those who don’t like petrolatum, this could make you squeamish. Either a petrolatum or zinc based hydrating barrier can help heal the skin from constant chlorine contact.
Or you can wash with a non soap and alkali free cleanser like Sebamed. It’s pH 5.5 for healthy skin and I know many a swimmer who has used it to help their swimmer’s itch.
It has a very light foam and scent and rinses clean. Trust me-after swimmer’s itch, it will feel good.
You can find more about Sebamed by visiting www.sebamed.com or checking your local boutique retailer.
