Face cream following lunchtime swim

I have started swimming at lunchtimes in an outdoor pool that is a combination of salt sea water and chlorine. Although not as hard as a fully chlorinated pool, I can still feel and smell the stuff on me even after a quick shower in the office change room.

Looking for suggestions if I should use a face cream after showering to counter the chlorine + salt + sun after my swim and what that product should be?

I appreciate that some of you may suggest 'elephant semen' or 'octopus disharge'; however, I would prefer something easily bought over the counter. (and not under)

I do apply 30+ Spf sunblock before I jump in.

thanks

The best thing to do is cover your face and hands in oil, then swim. Nothing will get on your skin, then just wash with whatever you normally do thereafter. I bet if you wanted, you could mix some jojoba oil with your sunscreen.

Get some chlorine removal shampoo. No more pool smell!

And make sure you moisturize your skin after your swim. I suggest splashing on some facial toner splash and using a very hydrating moisturizer that isnt too heavy. I'm currently a HUGE FAN of twinluxe face balm/moisturizer so I would recommend that product to use.
