WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY SOFT WATER?
Soft water, unlike hard water, has a low ion content, particularly calcium and magnesium. The soft water is usually found on the surface itself. Rainwater is the most prevalent source of soft water.
WHY HARD WATER IS BAD FOR SKIN?
1. CLOGS YOUR PORES:The limescale residue, albeit barely noticeable, clogs your pores and lingers on your skin even after you shower. Your body produces oils that are normally distributed via the skin's pores, but when these pores become clogged, the oils become trapped, resulting in pimple production. Clogged pores can cause outbreaks and exacerbate skin disorders such as acne and eczema.
2. RESULTS IN DRY SKIN:Hard water can make your skin feel dry, itchy, and irritated, in addition to causing breakouts. Hard water's calcium and magnesium minerals can drain moisture from your skin while blocking the natural oils your body produces. Your skin is unable to retain moisture and lubricate itself because of this condition.
3. CAUSES SKIN TO AGE FACTOR:With all these negative impacts on your skin, it's no surprise that hard water accelerates the ageing process. The magnesium and iron ions contained in hard water, according to doctors, cause "free radicals" to harm healthy skin cells. This causes wrinkling and the production of fine lines by inducing collagen breakdown, which is a structural protein that helps your skin feel tighter.
HOW IS SOFT WATER HELPFUL FOR SKIN?
The fact that soft water is better for cleaning is one of the most significant benefits of having a water softener installed in our home. Dishes, laundry, and even your skin are included! The ion exchange mechanism softens water by removing minerals like calcium and magnesium and replacing them with sodium.
Don't worry, the salt content is lower than that of a slice of bread!
To achieve optimal results, soft water need less soap and fewer rinses, making soap removal easier. Soft water also regulates the pH level of your skin, leaving you with nourished, smooth skin after each wash.
Soft water can also aid in the reduction of skin conditions such as eczema and acne. In fact, you might not need to buy the pricey body wash and lotion you thought you required after installing a water softener!
DOES FRESH WATER FEELS SLIPPERY ON SKIN?
When a water softener is first placed in a home, some people remark that their skin feels slick or slippery. Soft water dissolves mineral ions and washes away all the soapy residue, leaving your skin completely clean and smooth. The salt and potassium in soft water allows
