Have you ever been sitting in your hot tub just soaking in the warm bubbles and wondering, can life get any better than this? You feel so relaxed but then suddenly after you get out, your skin starts to itch and gets dry, what is the deal? Why does my skin itch after getting out of the hot tub?
Dry and itchy skin occurs after being in a hot tub because of two reasons: Chemicals and bacteria. If you own a hot tub then you’re no stranger to using chemicals to clean your pool and if you aren’t careful with how many you put in or how often you clean your hot tub, a common side effect is skin irritation.
Why do I itch when I get out of the hot tub?
One of the big culprits for dry skin or itchy skin rash after being in a hot tub is because of traditional sanitizers chlorine and bromine. There are a lot of bacteria that can live in warm water and one of the best ways to kill these bacteria is to use chemicals like these.
One of the problems with using these chemicals is they are known to be skin irritants and contain salt compounds that dry out your skin. There have been many studies that have shown chlorine water irritates the skin because it destroys fatty acids and Vitamin E in the body which are essential for keeping your skin healthy. Therefore many people with dry skin diseases like eczema use Vitamin E antioxidant supplements and fatty acid oils such as flaxseed oil to help with their dry skin.
How can I help reduce skin rash or irritation after being in my hot tub?
There are a few things we recommend helping you avoid itchy and dry skin or chlorine rashes. If you use chlorine or bromine to clean treat your hot tub water, you may notice that your skin has that lovely “chlorine smell” to it and that’s because you are still covered in chemicals. One of the best ways to get rid of these chemicals is pretty simple – take a shower! After you get out of a hot tub, be sure to shower in the very near future and thoroughly rinse off so all those chemicals won’t irritate your skin.
