Have you been suffering from itchy, dry skin? Does your hair feel dry and lifeless? The last thing that most of us think about when trying to change our beauty routine is the water we use. Believe it or not, the kind of water we use can make a dramatic difference in the appearance of our hair and skin. Around the world, many people are discovering the numerous health and beauty benefits of having a water softener.
 

What are Hard and Soft Water?

 
Hard water is comprised of minerals, such as calcium and magnesium. As water travels through the ground and into waterways, it accumulates minerals and rocks. The more minerals the water contains, the harder the water becomes. Soft water is achieved with a water softener by using resin beads to remove minerals from hard water.
 

What Can Soft Water Do For My Skin?

 
Hard water and soap are not compatible. The soap reacts with the minerals in hard water, creating soap curd—leaving sticky residue on your skin and your pores clogged. A water softener can prevent clogged pores and allow soap to lather better on your skin by removing most of these minerals. This means you won’t have to use as much soap to clean your body.
 

What Can Soft Water Do For My Hair?

 
The minerals in hard water cause your hair cuticles to stand up, which can make your hair feel rough and dry. Because soap doesn’t easily break down in hard water, you will find yourself using more shampoo than necessary to achieve an acceptable lather. A water softener lets your body’s natural oils keep your hair soft and shiny.
