How to manage acne with chlorine water ?

I am a 21 year old female who has had acne since I was 13.... recently I am attending SUNY Potsdam where I discovered that the water up there contains chlorine and it makes it difficult for me to wash my face . Is there anything I can do to prevent that?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
Chlorine should not be a problem to you.Just use any good anti acne face wash(salicylic acid ),avoid any moisturizer on face and use anti acne creams like clindamycin on face .Also check your hormone profile since any hormonal disturbance can also cause acne.Consult a dermatologist for the same.
take care,
