WATER dries out skin: Dry, itchy skin is caused by being in the water too long. This washes away the natural oils that coat the outer layer of the skin drying it out. Tiny fissures (cracks) can form, which leads to itchy skin. You should rinse off your skin after pool use and use plenty of moisturizer.
