whats happens by not taking a shower after swimming in the salty ocean?

i know this is gross but its been a week since i swam at the beach and its also been a week since i taken a shower. the reason for this is my shower is broken and the only place i can take a shower at is at the YMCA, and i havent been able to go. so anyways what are the bad things about swimming in the salty sea and not taking a shower right after?

    Salt water can dry up the natural oils in your skin, and this in turn can lead to boils and pimples. When you have been in the sea, you need to wash off the salt as soon as you can, and as you so rightly say, not showering fo a week is gross.

      So lame. No issue if you do not shower after swimming in the ocean. Little dry skin. Or probably not even that. Actually it is very good for your skin. People go to the beach and swim daily and they have no issues . You are stronger than you think .

    You could a rash and the salt dries out your skin. But if nothings happened to you yet I wouldn't sweat it too much.
