I have noticed that when I get out of the pool my skin (cheeks especially) are so dry. Id love to hear some recommendations for something to keep the moisture in my skin this summer :)
Have you thought about using an oil instead of a moisturiser before you go swimming? It might be more resistant
I use an oil and I can usually feel it still on my skin after a swim. I feel that it really protects my skin from the water, my skin doesn’t feel dry at all afterwards.
What kind of oil do you use?
I tend to have a few on rotation (atm Rosehip, Avocado and Jojoba) and they seem to work well.
Oh nice! Love rosehip oil ♥️
I used to swim 3x a week as a workout. Apart from just any moisturiser before and after swimming (I did that for my hair as well) I was always told that your skin/hair "pick up" the first water that touches it.
I.e. if you're about to go into a chlorine pool, get your hair really wet with clean water first so your hair doesn't absorb the chlorine water. That's always worked for me, for both hair and skin. So I always showered right before getting into the pool.
I've heard that too Nell!
I haven't heard that before, that's really interesting. I rarely come in contact with chlorine anymore but that's something I will definitely keep in mind for future reference, thankyou.
I don't swim, but I find that Argan oil and Rosehip oil are really great for dry skin! I would try these in conjunction with a good moisturiser.
I've heard of the shower before swim but never knew why!
Thank you BH for an opportunity to try this product as I would never have bought this otherwise.
I received a sample of this product to try. I was excited as I love John Frieda products and I'm always looking for that next best thing.
I haven’t used Proactiv products before as I worry about the reaction on my skin. I received this Proactiv 3 step kit from beautyheaven (thank you BH!) to trial so I thought it’s now or never.
We had the Christmas in July giveaways and now it’s back on again!
