Water is the key ingredient in many beauty and hair care products, so why spend your hard earned cash on top-quality creams and serums only to use tap water to rinse it all off with.
It’s true that water has many positive effects on skin, hair and your overall health, but choosing the right water source can make a difference. So how can adding a water filter boost your beauty regime?
1. Better tasting H2O
Drinking enough water helps the skin glow and maintain its elasticity. However, if you are one of those people who struggle to drink 8 glasses of water a day, installing a water filter might help you out. Tap water often has an aftertaste that can be off-putting; this is due to the residual chemicals used by water companies to treat the water for harmful bacteria and other organisms. By opting for a water filter, chemicals such as Chlorine can be removed, leaving behind a more palatable glass of water. When your water tastes this good…you may be more tempted to drink up and keep your skin hydrated.
2. Improves skin tone
Drinking more of the good stuff helps flush out the toxins that builds up in the body and increases blood flow giving the skin an even and brighter tone. Without an adequate water intake, our skin appears duller, wrinkles become more visible and pores can clog causing spots and other skin irritations. Proper hydration allows the skin to become plump, improving its elasticity and tone. Drinking filtered water takes it one step further, by ensuring that the water you drink in isn’t adding to the toxins already accumulating in your body.
3. Balances your pH levels
Ideally, healthy skin and hair should be pH balanced to avoid weakening of the hair strands, scalp and skin irritation. Hair has a pH of approximately 3.67 and your skin is around 5.5, both of which are on the acidic side. Chemicals in tap water such as Chlorine are alkaline which can result in a disruption of the pH balance of your skin and hair. By using pH balanced beauty products as well as using a shower water filter can help to maintain the correct pH balance and keep you looking your best.
4. Soothes sensitive skin
Skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne not only react to chemicals in beauty products but also to water. Hard water sources in particular can cause a mineral build up on the skin, which is bad news for psoriasis, eczema or acne sufferers whose skin barriers are already compromised. Flat, lifeless or rough feeling hair, flaky scalp and dry skin are just some of the effects of using hard water. Water filters and softeners can help to combat the effects of hard water on the skin and hair.
As you grow older, your body finds it harder to retain water. Therefore, by drinking more water, you are helping your skin stay hydrated. Staying hydrated increases the skins elasticity and minimises the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic Acid is a popular ingredient in many beauty products. HA is a component of your skin’s structure and gives you a healthy, hydrated look. It naturally occurs in the body and can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. To get the most out of this product ensure that you keep hydrated and apply to freshly washed, damp skin.
