A Water Softening System Can Help Improve Skin

Water Softening SystemA water softening system can eliminate common, naturally occurring hardness minerals like calcium and magnesium from household water. Hard water doesn’t pose any health risks and is not a cause for alarm. Nevertheless, it can make tasks like washing dishes, doing laundry, and showering unpleasant and difficult. If you’ve seen soap scum on your glassware, noticed that your shampoo bottle empties out long before your conditioner bottle, or found that your coffeemaker or other water-using appliances just don’t seem to last as long as they should, hard water might be the underlying cause. The good news is that all of these issues can be eliminated with one solution: a water softening system.

Due to its harsh effects on skin – especially delicate facial skin – hard water can also cause other, lesser-known problems. Hardness minerals do not easily rinse away with water, and hard water does not react properly with soap. Instead of generating a rich, luxurious lather, it forms an insoluble soap scum. Therefore, after washing or bathing with hard water, a problematic residue is left behind on the skin. Because a water softening system will remove the troublesome hardness minerals from the water, it is believed to help alleviate the symptoms of certain skin problems, such as:

  • Dryness and flakiness
  • Irritation
  • Clogged pores
  • Acne
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis

One way to minimize facial skin exposure to hard tap water is to wash in a sink and rinse with bottled water, instead of cleansing in the shower. However, an easier and more effective way is to install a water softener, which will provide benefits throughout the whole house.
