If you suffer from dry skin that seems to be persistent even after applying moisturizer regularly, then it could be the water from your tap that is the problem. If your skin feels tight and looks flaky, and is not very soft even after you've washed and washed it, then it may not be your skin that's the problem but the hardness of the water that you are using.
Many people around the world take their usual shower, perform their usual facial routine, use their specific products, and consider the single, larger thing they are constantly putting on their skin.
It's not really something we usually consider when washing, and most people are not aware of whether their water is indeed hard or soft. However, it's an amazing fact that 80% of the water in the US is classed as hard water, which is water that contains calcium and magnesium minerals. It's these minerals that dry out your skin after washing as they remain on even after rinsing thoroughly, and by applying moisturizer you are fighting a losing battle as the next time you wash the problem just reoccurs.
The problem is that both hard water deposits and cleaning products are left on the skin, which can also cause your skin to become irritated and intolerable to damage, especially when it comes to facial skin which contain fragile blood vessels beneath. Remaining soap can also aid in clogging skin pores, giving you dry skin and other possibly skin complaints and can even cause your skin to become thinner and aggravated skin conditions, such as rosacea.
Hard water also causes other problems such as scum build around bath tubs and sinks, as well as leaving hard water stains on windows and shower glass.
Using soft water (which does not contain as many minerals) while washing can leave skin feeling soft and smooth and much more refreshed. This is because the soft water gives the soap much more lathering power making it easier to wash off excess minerals. It can also leave glassware and silverware sparkling as it does not leave spotty chalky hard water spots.
However, do not fear, there are some easy ways to remove hard water from your home. There are many water softening devices on offer these days which do a great job of removing the harmful calcium and magnesium minerals, which also prevent hard water stains forming around the home.
There are also some good beauty products for the face and skin that can be used specifically with hard water. Basically, these products use slightly different ingredients than those found in soap, and are typically liquid based soaps that react well with hard water to form a lather, and consequently leave skin feeling refreshed and revitalized. If you require an immediate solution, it can be a good idea to use bottled water than does not contain high levels of minerals to wash your face, which should improve the smoothness and appearance of your skin.[ad_2]
