Salt water pools are gaining popularity as the years goes on because of their lower maintenance requirements. Though a salt water pool will cost you more than a fresh water pool initially, the ongoing costs of upkeep have shown to be significantly lower. Both types of pools have their own perks and benefits, but if you have been considering a salt water pool, here are four health benefits.
Good for The Skin
After swimming in a pool full of chlorine, our skin can be left itchy and dry. Saltwater, however, is naturally good for the skin. After a dip in a salt water pool, your skin will be left feeling smoother and softer. Salt water is good for certain skin disorders like eczema and acne. It is a natural exfoliant and moisturizer so it helps our skin to retain more moisture.
This health benefit goes for both types of pools. Working out in a gym all of the time can get redundant after a while, so it’s a good idea to switch it up. Swimming is a great way to exercise the entire body all at one time. With every stroke, you are resisting the water flow so it is actually making your body work harder than if you were using cardio gym equipment.
Saltwater contains a mineral called bromide that is known to help relieve everyday aches and pains in the joints and muscles. This makes a salt water pool a better alternative to fresh water when it comes to relieving sore muscles. This is good for people who are recovering from injuries because it allows them to exercise while helping their joints to recover faster.
Aside from chlorine drying out the skin, it can also irritate other parts of the body. A pool with too much chlorine can irritate your eyes, making them red and itchy when you are done swimming. Some people can even suffer from breathing trouble when in a pool that has too much chlorine. A salt water pool eliminates these possibilities altogether, making for a better swimming experience.
