Hardwater And Your Skin

Did you know that the cool winter air may not be the cause of your dry skin? If you’ve ever felt that no matter how much you moisturize your skin it stays dry, then Norfolk’s hard water might just be your nemesis.

If you’re a Norfolk resident, you’ll know first-hand the terrible damage that limescale can do to your property and appliances. However, your home’s hard water isn’t just responsible for scale-encrusted appliances, it can wreak havoc on your quest for soft glowing skin. I mean If it can clog the pipes, imagine what it can do to your skin.

In case you’re wondering; hard water is water high in dissolved minerals, mainly calcium and magnesium. These minerals can affect your skin over a period of time as the calcium settles on your skin which affects the skin’s ability to moisturise itself. This can lead to enlarged pores, acne, rashes itching and rosacea. In fact simply bathing in hard water may cause redness and dry skin, so it’s bad news all round.

One of the best solutions is to use a water softener which makes the soap easier to rinse off. This way, you won’t have any residue build-up on your skin.
