some peeple say chlorine even clears up acne.

but others say chlorine can give you skin cancer (more than sun).

:neutral:


:: what would you buy? ::

1 - the ugly colored and graved with bird shit all over it, but Porsche/Lamborgini shaped car what could take you like a jet plane?

2 - or the amazing static red colored shiny, with the green glow under the car but is shaped like a lame cube where old folks drive in?

[image removed by sigbot--see board rules] the same goes for acne and the girls who choose the guy's [image removed by sigbot--see board rules]

ps: I don't know cars, only girls... but you got the point.

I heard somewhere that swimming in salt water gets rid of acne because it kills germ or something, is that true?

Yeah, ocean swimming does seem to soothe my skin. I'll give it a go in a few weeks when I head back east. Maybe I'll make it a morning ritual, and start a personal log. wink.gif

swimming pools will definetely help to clear up your skin....however i had somewhat of the opposite effect with salt water

salt water doesn't help me, but i know it helps others. i think it depends how sensitive your skin is.

i swim a lot, in a chlorinated pool, and it helps rather than hinders my face. after you swim, i recommend showering (or splashing your face) with COLD water, then patting dry and moisturising if neccesary.
