Being in the pool is really good for you. You can relax and unwind, getting rid of all those worries and stresses of your day, and of course swimming is also excellent exercise for your entire body, but when you opt for a salt chlorinated water pool, you’re also getting some extra health benefits. To find out what these benefits are, read on…
Salt water is really good for your skin
Swim in chlorine and it’s likely you’ll come out with dry skin that may itch. When you swim in salt water, your skin will really benefit. It’s a natural exfoliator and moisturiser so you’ll leave the pool with silky smooth skin all over your body. It’s been proven to be particularly beneficial to anyone who suffers from skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and even acne.
It has extra stress relieving benefits
Being in the pool is instantly relaxing, but add in the benefits of salt water and you’ll feel even more calm and tranquil. Salt water helps our body to relax more quickly and naturally, leaving you feeling at peace after every dip.
It will soothe your joints and muscles
The bromide in the salt water is perfect for alleviating aches and pains. If you suffer from a bad back from sitting at a desk all day, or your legs are sore from being on your feet for a long time, you’ll soon notice those pains ease away when you relax in a salt chlorinated water pool. If you’re recovering from an injury, spending time in the pool will certainly help you on the way to a speedy recovery.
So much better than the gym
The pool is more relaxing and more fun than the gym that’s for sure, and when you exercise in a pool, using the natural resistance of the water, you’re getting a great workout that’s low impact, so you’re not going to damage your joints as you could if you were on a treadmill at a gym. It’s also good for concentrating on your breathing while you exercise.
Free from side effects
Some people can experience side effects when they’re in a pool, especially if a little too much chlorine has been added. A salt chlorinated water pool has no such side effects so you can rest assured that no one in your pool will suffer from any ill effects of chlorine such as irritated eyes or breathing difficulties.
