So here’s another daily tip from your friendly local dermatologist!

All right, how do you know if a hot tub should not be gotten into because it’s gross? So one tip for hot tubs is there’s a lot of froth on top, a lot of suds if you will on top, that probably means that the water needs to be changed out where the chlorine levels are off or there’s stuff in the water that you really don’t want on your skin. So that’s one tip. Two, you can smell the chlorine or the bromine from 20 feet away, probably not regulated properly. Three, the water’s not clear. That’s probably a hint that you should stay away. Four, if has floaties in it, that’s just a general rule of thumb. No floaties in the hot tub period. Five, if there’s a lot of grease or slime around the outside or if it’s discolored in any way the tile or that sort of thing is discolored in any way. Six, if when you get into it your skin doesn’t feel right or seven, when you get out of the water and your skin is super irritated. So just pay attention before you get into the water, same thing as if you jump into a pond make sure it’s deep enough before you jump. Well before you get in a hot tub, let’s make sure it’s sanitary at least from a common-sense visual inspection.

Because Dermatologists treat more than just skin cancer!
