Tap water with “harmless” additives like chlorine can wreak damage to sensitive or vulnerable skin.
1) Acne Breakouts
Tap water contains large amounts of chlorine which makes the iron rusty and the impurities that come from this can clog up your pores. This creates an opportunity for acne to form every time you wash your face, back, and shoulders.
2) Dry, Flaky Skin
Because hard water contains drying agents, your skin is unable to maintain a healthy moisture level and even lose your ability to absorb moisturizer.
3) Red Itchy Skin
The worst thing to experience in your water is too much chlorine that can cause red itchy skin and even get hives for people who are sensitive.
What Can We Do About It ?
A filtered shower head can help filter out dangerous contaminants – chlorine, sediment, redworm, algae, rusty iron, heavy metal, and bacteria – in addition to infusing the water with beneficial minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.
If you shower in water without chlorine, the natural oil in your skin will not be dried out at the same rate as when you shower in chlorine everyday.
