It’s time for another entry in our female swimwear styles series! Today we will take a look at Arena.
Dry itchy skin, green hair and smelling like chlorine are all problems of the past when you shop Personal Care at Swim2000! Here are a few highlighted products to help you smell fresh and feel great after swimming.
Shampoos and Conditioners
One of our favorite shampoo-conditioner combos (and definitely a customer favorite!) is UltraSwim Shampoo and UltraSwim Conditioner. The shampoo has a unique formula that attacks chlorine build up, releasing chlorine bonded to your hair. The conditioner delivers extra moisture to chlorine-exposed locks and helps repair split ends. It’s also one of our lowest-priced hair care offerings, making it a perfect choice for those who need to wash the chlorine from their hair on a regular basis! Another favorite shampoo is Reflect H2O Sulfate Free Swim Shampoo. Those wanting to take extra special care of their hair will want to try this shampoo, as it contains quality ingredients that are gentle on your hair. Pair that with the Reflect H2O Pre-Swim and Sun Protecting Hair Gel for a complete solution for protecting your hair from chlorine!
Soaps, Body Washes and Chlorine Removal
We’ll start simple by giving two thumbs up to the Summer Solutions Soap+ Bar. It’s gentle enough for sensitive skin and does a great job of removing chlorine from the skin. If you prefer body wash over bar soap, try the TriSwim Body Wash. Since it contains aloe it is also gentle on your skin, and the citrus scent is delightful! If you still can’t get rid of that annoying chlorine smell, SwimSpray is what you need! This Vitamin C spray is great at removing the chlorine smell, and it can be used on the body or on hair.
Chlorine can dry out the skin – that’s why it’s great to always have a bottle of Summer Solutions Moisture Therapy on hand. Specifically formulated for swimmers, this lotion will hydrate and soothe your dry skin. Another great choice is TriSwim Lotion, which contains Vitamin E and Vitamin B5 – ingredients that will help penetrate the skin to moisturize, hydrate and heal your skin.
Some of us don’t just swim, and we have products formulated for our triathlete friends too! A perennial favorite for preventing chafing is BodyGlide, which we have available in the original formulation as well as an anti-pain balm. If you want something created just for women, you’ll definitely want to try the aptly-named Reflect Sports Hoo Ha Ride Glide.
We hope this post helps you repair your hair and skin from the harsh effects of chlorine and chafing!
Do you feel that chill in the air? Even here in Las Vegas, our temperatures have dropped substantially in the last few weeks. Like us, you don’t stop your swim routine just because it’s chilly outside – but that doesn’t mean you have to freeze in or out of the water! Here are some suggestions for staying warm during this fall and winter.
During the coldest months of the year, a parka may be the most invaluable item in your swim pack! Whether you’re looking for the tried-and-true Tyr Team Parka or the new Arena Piston Parka, you can’t go wrong with any selection. All our parkas have fleece interiors and exteriors that will help prevent cold winds from chilling you. We even have parkas for children, such as the Nike Youth Swim Parka.
Look stylish on deck in a brand-new warm-up set from one of many quality brands! Nike’s Laser Warm-Up Jacket and Pants are great choices with its Dri-FIT wickaway fabrication. You could also try the Speedo Boom Force Warm-Ups – they come in lots of great colors and are available in many sizes fit specifically for men, women or children. Dolfin Swimwear has recently come out with warm-ups as well and they are a perfect choice for the more budget-conscious swimmer.
If you’re looking for a more casual option to keep you warm that can be worn anywhere, why not check out our warm wear? You’ll find a large and colorful selection of hoodies, pullovers and sweat pants. A great choice for ladies is the Arena Parkour Zip Hoodie which comes in several vibrant colors. For ultimate comfort, women can also try the Speedo Yoga Pants. For the guys, there is the Tyr Throw Back V-Neck Pullover, which celebrates Tyr’s nearly 30-year history. You can even pick up matching sweat pants from Tyr!
If it’s the water and not the air that’s chilling you, we have a solution! Check out our Thermal Wear selection, featuring Aqua Sphere’s Aqua Skins. If you only need to warm your core you can try the Aqua Skin Top, but if the water is frigid and you need maximum protection, try the Aqua Skin Full Suit. There are many options in between the two, fitted specifically for men and women – be sure to explore it all!
Happy swimming! Stay warm!
