Bp and chlorine

Hello you guys, I need some advice . . .

I'd like to start with the CSR and I actually thought it would be no problem since my skin is already adjusted to BP and i have no problems with it. (like redness or itching ect)

BUT: I really really REALLY love swimming and I do it very often. But after swimming my skin is extremly dry, red, burning and itching which is due to the chlorine in the swimming pools (i think i'm slightly allergic to it!?) I don't think it would be a good idea to apply BP when my skin is already that irritated. This means i would have to miss out a lot of applications and I think it doesn't make sense to do the CSR half-heartedly.

I won't give up my favourite sport so here's my question:

Is there a possibility to protect the skin from the chlorine? I already tried this SudoCrem and even vaseline but it didn' help very much.

well they wouldnt like each other due to them being chemicals.

and BP becomes Benzoic acid when applied to the skin, so you should actually swim with BP on.
