Seasonal Shift from Ocean to Indoor Pool Swimming

One of my major exercise issues is going from the joy of open water swimming to indoor pools. No waves, or fish to get my attention, it gets a bit monotonous. And, sharing lanes with other people, some with good manners, some not so much, is another issue.

Probably the most annoying aspect of indoor swimming pools is dealing with chlorinated water. So with a bit of digging around, I discovered a sweet, low cost way to remove this strong chemical from the skin. Vitamin C to the rescue!

A West Coast Naturopath, Dr.Deborah McKay wrote up a simple solution I would like to share. Simply add a half teaspoon of crystallized Vitamin C to a pint of water in a spray bottle, apply after swimming, rub it in, and rinse off.
