Wow interesting, makes sense though. What product do you use? Can it harm the skin in any way?I water ski three times a week. I know what you are going through.
It sounds crazy, but a friend of mine told me to use wax, before you go in. Car wax!!!! I though she was nuts, but it really did help. Put just a little liquid wax on all over before you get in the water, after your sun screen.
It keeps the water off your skin, and you don't dry out. Soap and water in the shower, and it comes right off.
