Chlorine Problems on Twitter

December 26, 2012


Yesterday at 7:26 pm someone from the Twitter handle @lyssalou_6 tweeted "I hate how chlorine makes your skin so dry."  We understand. And we sympathize.  

At last year's Minnesota Grand Prix meet, Ricky Berens described this a "chlorine burn," which I think paints an accurate picture of how painfully dry chlorine can make your skin.  It feels raw and chapped.  It stings and burns.

@lyssalo 6 - SwimSpray washes the chlorine off of your skin.  If the chlorine is making your skin dry, then washing away the chlorine might help.  Just a thought.  You can check it out at

Here are what some other people were saying about chlorine reacting with their hair and skin on Twitter:
