Here's why you shouldn't use tap water to clean your face

Is Tap Water The Problem Of Bad Skin?

The health of our skin and hair is greatly influenced by the quality of our water.

Although drinking water has always been good for your skin, tap water can irritate and dehydrate it, especially if your skin is sensitive.

Your water could be hard, which means that contains high levels of minerals like calcium and magnesium. While these minerals are usually fine for drinking, they are not so good for your skin as they could contain a lot of substances that unbalance the pH of your skin. This water forms a constant film that stays on the skin being it difficult to wash away and will be clogging the pores. This will make it hard to moisturize your skin. Depriving it of the natural oils can result in big skin problems including dryness, acne, eczema, and dermatitis.

So, why would you waste money on expensive skincare products when the water that you are using every day is doubtful?

Hard water can be detected by checking faucets, drinking glasses, and the bathtub. If you've noticed water spots on your glasses or utensils, soap scum on your shower doors, or a filmy residue after washing your hands, hard water is likely to be the problem.


How Can You Avoid This? 

We have good news! Thankfully, hard water is treatable and you can get all the benefits of water with at-home filtration and vitalization systems that remove excess calcium and magnesium from the water. By eliminating all this unwanted hard water, softening devices can make you see more hydrated skin and hair and correct skin problems. Not only will your family notice this change, but you'll also likely see cleaner dishes or coffee machines by using whole-home filtration systems. With these products, you will be able to increase the efficiency of your water-using appliances and save on cleaning products.
