    Salt water instead of chlorine

    by Maline Updated Jun 4, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At our hotel, as in many hotels in Lesvos we were told, the pool is filled with saltwater rather than chlorinated water. This means that it will sting your eyes just like the sea-water does, and that you should shower off the salt before stretching out in the sun again. Salt can enhance the effect of the sun and you can burn more easily, also, it has a drying effect on the skin and on your hair.

    Take advantage of the local production by bying some local olive oil and treat your hair in the evening, leave the oil in for a shorter or longer period of time, and then shampoo it out.
