Should I moisturize after I swim?

I'm a competitive swimmer and have practice that often run more than two hours. I recently determined that my acne was not genetic (parents never had acne, cousins never, aunts/uncles never, TWIN sister never, BTW I am a guy) so I started doing nothing to treat it, like Dan said in his video about doing nothing. I have been doing this for about three days, and whenever I get out of the pool, the harsh chlorine seems like it's ripping away my skin and I'm left very dry and very flakey, so would that be going against doing nothing, or should I be moisturizing?? :wall:

Does that mean doing nothing worked for you afterall?

And do you mean moisturizing, without showering, after you swim? Seems like a dumb question, but i wanted to make sure...
