"CHLORE ATTACK" - OR HOW TO COMBAT CHLORINE.

(2)

You are certainly quite familiar with the smell of chlorine that sticks to your skin and is so difficult to get rid of. The chlorine used in swimming pools tends to become encrusted all over our body and simply won't go away...
Nabaiji has some useful tips on how to get rid of the smell until your next training session!

WHY IS CHLORINE USED IN OUR SWIMMING POOLS?

Before criticising this element, which is after all essential, we should remember that chlorine is used first and foremost to protect us against all the impurities present in the water: viruses, bacteria, and much worse...

 

The chlorine treats the water and makes it as clean as possible.

 

Consequently, after a few minutes, the smell becomes attached to your body and does not appear to want to go away.

 

One essential tip: always take a shower before bathing. A simple rinse is not enough. You need to thoroughly wash your head and body in order to get rid of as many bacteria from outdoors as possible, before getting into the water. And after your swim, take a wash with some natural soap that will eliminate the toxins on your skin and rinse away any chlorine residue. You can also use special anti-chlorine shower gel.
The gel prevents the skin from drying and that stretched skin feeling, once you have rubbed down. You can also use a fragrant moisturising milk that will limit this unpleasant feeling and get rid of the smell once and for all.

AND MY SWIMSUIT MUST WITHSTAND THE CHLORINE TOO.

Chlorine does not only attack your skin. After you have worn it a few times, your swimsuit can also suffer from the effects of chlorine. Which is the reason why Nabaiji has created the AQUARESIST label, especially for training swimwear that is totally chlorine-resistant.

 

The materials most often used in swimsuit manufacture contain an elastane fibre which provides good elasticity but makes them very fragile. After repeated contact, the fibres disintegrate and the fabric becomes limp and transparent in the areas that are the most stretched and out of contact with the skin (between the breasts, the navel and the buttocks). The engineers at Nabaiji have solved this problem by developing a polyester-based material and replacing the elasthane fibre with a PBT fibre (or elastolefin fibre) that makes the swimwear elastic enough to the comfortable, while preventing any damage caused by chlorine.
Thanks to this PBT fibre, the swimwear dries more quickly and withstands attack by UV rays for longer. The KAMIYE and LIDIA swimsuits are the stars of our SWIM ACTIV collection!
