11. A swim care routine – this is a wonderful opportunity for some self care and pampering, to clean and care for yourself before you start the day. It really lifts your mood and protects you from the effects of chlorinated pools when you swim regularly.

Chlorine is an essential chemical for swimming pools because it disinfects the water. Since swimming pools are used by a lot of people, it’s necessary to add chemicals to the water that will help to sanitize it. It’s usually available as chlorine granules or powder and is simply added to the water and spread around. The purpose is to kill unwanted microbes in the water but also to oxidize the pool in order to eliminate the organic matter.

Unfortunately, chlorine can be irritating on the skin and cause problems for people, especially if they’re sensitive to chlorine.

Even if you are lucky enough to swim in the sea, the ocean that is rich in mineral salts, you might still struggle with unruly locks – this is because sea water and chlorine both swell the cuticle on the outside layer of the hair, making it look damaged and becoming tangled more easily.

Here is how to create a nourishing swim care routine

1. Swim with a barrier to protect your skin. If you’re going to be swimming in the sun, make sure you wear sunscreen – reef safe sunscreen is perfect – to add a protective barrier to your skin. Even if you are swimming indoors, it contains oils that form an extra waterproof barrier around your skin to protect it from the chlorine.

2. Wet the hair pre swim and apply a conditioner or oil to the hair – wetting the hair is the most important step here as the water impregnates your hair shafts and keeps them from absorbing the chlorine. Applying a conditioner and tucking your hair in to a swim cap are also lovely optional steps to protect your hair while swimming.

3. Shower as soon as you get out of the pool. A shower can help remove any bacteria or chlorine on your body. This is a perfect chance to exfoliate-ex-fo-li-ate, to deeply cleanse your skin and feel soft like a baby.

4. Use a ph friendly intimate wash on your body when showering – this helps to restore the natural ph of your body after swimming and care for your intimate areas to ensure you don’t develop thrush after regular exposure to the chlorine.

5. Pat dry your skin with a towel. Make sure you bring a towel if you decide to swim and pat yourself instead of letting your skin air-dry. It’s often said that air-drying your skin can cause problems if you have sensitive or dry skin. If you can, apply a moisturiser within 60 seconds of patting dry, to lock in the skin’s moisture before it evaporates with the water.

6. Moisturise your skin after swimming. After swimming and showering, pop on a body lotion or moisturiser to help keep your skin healthy and repair its protective barrier that keeps moisture locked in.

7. If you feel your skin flaking or feeling dry, tight or irritated, hydrate with a thicker cream. If your skin still feels dry and tight after applying moisturiser then you might want to try a thicker cream instead of a lotion. These are typically much better at keeping your skin hydrated for longer.

8. Once dry, try a silky dusting powder to make your skin super soft. It will also help you to slip in to your clothes more easily and is a real treat to use.

You can even clean your teeth in the process! Apply deodorant, style your hair if there is a plug, apply an spf and any makeup and feel ready for the day! If you’re worried about the wet things in your bag, pop those little dehumidifier sachets in your swim bag before you go, they contain little cystals that absorb excess moisture. They will help to keep your swim bag nice and fresh!
