 HOW ABOUT A SWIM CAP?
It’s very rare that you’ll see vacationists wearing swim caps while they swim. It’s because people usually think that professional swimmers are the ones who always wear such. People might also assume that you’re really good at swimming when you don’t even know how to. It catches attention, so you’re hesitant because people who swim for fun and for vacation purposes don’t usually wear that.

Swimcap also makes swimming more convenient for you since it keeps your long hair from going to your face and from blocking your vision. It also turns you away from possible accidents due to difficulty in seeing while swimming.
When your hair’s well-kept, you can enjoy swimming while not worrying about how your hair might be wrecking your beautiful summer look.
 SHOWER IS VITAL.

After swimming, showering again is much more important because you have to wash off of your skin all the chemicals from the pool and all the other elements you’ve gotten in contact with.
Most especially if you’ll be swimming in a public pool or with other people, you’re sure that you will encounter stuff you don’t want to encounter in the pool. Many of them are not visible to the naked eye, so it’s much more unpleasant to your skin.
