Shannon: With the warmer weather I’m making more trips to the community pool and swimming there to stay cool. I wanted to know whether or not pool chlorine is bad for you? 

Megan: The simple answer would be yes, pool chlorine can be bad for you. It is a chemical that you are exposing your skin, eyes, hair, and even lungs to. It is meant to keep bacteria and algae out of the pool water. Showering before and after pool use is recommended because you don’t want existing products on your skin like lotions to interact with the chlorine and you want the chlorine off your skin as soon as possible. Wearing protective goggles and even a cap to cover your hair is a measure you can take to avoid irritation and contact with chlorine. It can dry out your skin and even show premature signs of aging over time. Occasional pool use is fine, but just be mindful of repeated exposure and make sure the pools you do enter are properly maintained with the chemicals balanced.
