Beauty Benefits of Soft Water

 In Water Softeners

Have you ever been in the midst of cleaning your home, and somewhere along the lines you discover little white specs on your showerhead, faucets, or silverware? Those itty bitty dots are the tell-tale signs of hard water. Hmmm… you might say. How can water, a liquid, be considered “hard”? Having hard water just means that the water coming straight from the tap, in your home, has a higher content of minerals like calcium, limestone, and magnesium. This may not seem like a big deal. However, hard water can wreak havoc on skin and hair. Your Beauty and health is important and hard water can cause, or worsen, issues like:

  • frizziness
  • dry scalp, and hair
  • clogged pores
  • acne, and
  • eczema

Hard water doesn’t dissolve soap properly. So, it may lead to soap scum on skin and clog your pores, causing acne. Hard water has the potential to dry out the skin. This can lead to increased oil production, which causes acne. The unwanted hard water minerals, when mixed with the excess oil production can cause a chemical reaction that also leads to acne.

So, we know hard water leads to damaged hair. But how? Well, the high mineral content causes a loss of lather in shampoo. Also, hard water just doesn’t rinse as clean as soft water. So, it may lead to  product build-up.

Wishing for hard water harmony in your home? Think again! An eco-friendly solution to your hard water dilemma are salt crystals, or pellets. These babies can get soft water flowing throughout your entire home. What it does is simply create an environment to where the mineral content of the water flowing through your tap is lessened.

Soft water:

  • relieves us from dry hair, and skin conditions, like psoriasis.
  • Softens skin. Because, soap lathers and rinses more easily.
  • Soothes the scalp, and rinses clean, preventing build up products like, thick creamy conditioners.

You can see the obvious signs of hard water built up around your home. But, to know for sure, you can ask your water company for a free water hardness test. After that, contact us for more information and support in creating soft water in your home.
