I just find that Chlorine is a drying agent if used on the skin from swimming. My guess would be that it has NO effect on red marks.

So im sure you have nothing to worry about, as long as you use an SPF, everything else will fall into place in time.

Good Luck!

Don't know anything about chlorine, but salt water(oceans/beaches) and the sun cleared up my body acne, and even most of my facial acne last summer. November came and everything changed. lol.

Do SPF's make you unable to get a tan, or only protect those things in your skin(that m word)?

Also, what do you think about the sun and red acne marks(no spf on face/spf on face)

I was on the swim team in highschool. I don't think there was any relation for me.

I wear an SPF of 30 and still have a decent skin tone/tanned skin. The sun can prolong the process of red marks I believe, but not make them worse. I suggest getting something with an SPF though my friend ;)
