Why Water Softeners are Good For Your Skin & Hair

Are you constantly itching at dry skin and trying to tame frizzy, unmanageable hair? If you’re nodding your head in excited agreement while staring at the screen — Hello there! We’re talking to you. What if we told you that there was a way to say “c-ya later” to itching and dryness once and for all? …Do we have your attention yet?

Water softeners. They’re the answer.

That’s right. Adding a water softening system to your home can help alleviate your itchy, dry beauty woes — and a lot of other issues too, as a matter of fact.

How do water softeners help keep skin and hair hydrated?

It’s simple. Soft water, being free of dissolved minerals like calcium and magnesium, make it much easier for soap to lather up. You may be saying; “Wait just a minute! My soaps and shampoos lather plenty! What gives?” Truth is, you may think they’re lathering up nicely, but in actuality, those minerals are inhibiting your soaps and shampoos from doing their job, and leaving behind a film of soap scum in the process. Over time, that film builds up on your skin and hair, clogging your pores and leading to itching, dryness and even acne.

What else is soft water good for?

We’re glad you asked! Showering and bathing aren’t the only tasks that will benefit from a water softening system. In fact, cleaning anything, in general, will become a whole lot easier. Reduced soap scum and limestone buildup will mean less time spent scrubbing down your sinks, faucets, and fixtures. Those hard water stains plaguing your favorite set of stemware? They’re a thing of the past! Even your linens will benefit from a soak in some soft water. Stiffness? Sayonara!
