Before you hit the pool…
…here’s how you can protect your locks
Before you dive in, there are a few hair care tips that will hold your locks in good stead. Start by rinsing your hair with cold water before you jump into the pool. This will saturate your hair strands so that they absorb less chlorine. Next, dab coconut oil or hair conditioner over your hair so that it acts like a barrier in the water and prevents your tresses from drying out. Finally, it may not be the most attractive way (but it’s definitely the most effective)—slip on a swimming cap to protect your precious tresses from the damaging effect of chlorine.

When it comes to pre-pool skin care, these are all the necessary steps that you need to follow. Before you enter the water, slather the Lakmé Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++ on your skin. Created with a long wear formula, this sunscreen will protect your skin from the harsh rays of the sun as well as prevent tanning and photoaging. Over particularly sensitive and dry areas of your skin like your ears and elbows, apply Vaseline’s Original Pure Skin Jelly. This triple purified petroleum jelly will reinforce certain spots from the harsh effect of chlorine so that they remain healthy.
