Whether you are an active swimmer or casually play in the pool,
there are eight basic tips that can make your poolside life better!
Let’s dive into these top eight tips:
1. Timing IS Everything
Sunscreen takes 30 minutes to absorb into your skin and will be fully
protecting. This is important for everyone to practice, especially for
children‘ sensitive skin. Putting sun block onto your children can be
difficult, which is why using spray on sunscreen at home before you
get into the sun is a good idea.
2. Safety and Fashion First
Allowing your children to become comfortable in the water is key. so
don‘t forget to sign them up for swimming lessons before you take them
out of the water. Other tools you can use to make them feel comfortable
is using floatation devices. Children love making their own decisions.
so be sure to let them help pick out their water wear.
Parents should feel comfortable in the water with the children, so if you have issues with that
take some swimming lessons yourself and be prepared by knowing first aid.
3. Foggy Goggles No More!
How many times have you tried to use goggles and the second
you get in the water they fog up on you? Well. with scrubbing
baby shampoo on each lens and washing it offwill do the trick.
Now you can swim at ease.
4. Master Your Poolside Snacks
Children need to feed their body while having a full day at the pool. so
Food52 has solved that problem for you by turning snacks into a bar
form. Another neat trick is putting snacks like dip and veggies in empty
peanut butter jars.
5. Be Happening with Hydration
You and your family must remember above all
else that hydration is key to feeling refreshed
after the pool. so bring hydrating foods and
flavored waters to the pool.
6. Shower Time is the Best Time
Showering is key to keeping yourself and your family free of
being impacted by chlorine. Remember to shower before and
after your dip in the pool.
7. Keep Your Car from Water Damage
No one likes having wet seats in their car. so please think
twice before leaving for the pool. Bring extra clothes for
the way home and a waterproof bag or sack to keep the
wet things in.
8. Oh No! Is that a Sunburn?
On the off chance that you did get too much sun and not enough
protection then you can do three things to help:
1) Add six cups ofwhole milk to a bath
2) Apply cold Greek yogurt for 10 minutes
3) Keeping an aloe Vera bottle in the house.
Now you don‘t have to be anxious going to the pool by yourself or with
your family, because you now have the knowledge to do it right!
