How else does Chlorine get into my body?
What most people don’t realize is that chlorine in drinking water alone is not the only problem that exists. The inhalation of this chemical and other vapors into our lungs means that these chemicals enter directly into our bloodstream. In addition, since the shower is warm or hot, our pores are wide open and our skin readily absorbs these chemicals. And then there is the cosmetic effect: it strips the protective oils from the skin and hair, causing excess drying and wrinkling of skin, as well as dry and brittle hair.
