Water plays an important role for your skin

** What is hard water - soft water? **

☘️ Hard water

It is estimated that nearly 85% of all homes in the United States use tap water or are considered hard water. This is water with a very high mineral content, usually calcium or magnesium carbonate. Mineral accumulation occurs naturally when water seeps through layers of limestone and chalk to then settle down to aquifers.

Although it is generally safe to drink because it contains many mineral ions that are good for health and prevent cardiovascular disease. But besides this advantage, hard water also brings many disadvantages, the most noticeable is the sedimentation in the household appliances, in the pipeline can even block or destroy the pipe. Continuous bathing with hard water can also affect skin health and appearance.


☘️ Soft water


Soft water is treated hard water to remove Ca2 + and Mg2 + cations by different methods. As a water that does not contain or contain very little soluble calcium and magnesium, soaps easily create foam, water after drying does not leave any stains on objects or clothing. So soft water is used in life as well as in production, they overcome the harmful effects that hard water causes.


** How to distinguish hard water - soft water? **


A simple way to distinguish hard and soft water is to use laundry soap. When washing detergent into these two types of water, if either side does not create much foam and has white residue, it is hard water.

In addition, you can check using the kettle. If after a period of use, you see white residue remaining under the warm bottom, the water you are using is hard water. This white residue will reduce the ability to conduct heat and cause fuel loss when cooking.

Another try is to look at the faucet or shower in the family. Hard water will cause the faucet to rust or leave a white residue. This damages the faucet. If used for a long time, it may cause a blockage of the plumbing.

** The impact of hard water on the skin **

The most common damage of hard water is to cause dryness and irritation to the skin. This is because water reduces the ability to foam and does not dissolve soap, as well as reducing the cleansing effect of creating insoluble calcium salts. When using detergents with hard water it will remove the natural oils of the skin, leading to dry, flaky and itchy skin.

Excess minerals in hard water can also directly dry on the skin, clogging pores and leading to acne. In drier climates, hard water is often considered to be the cause of dermatitis. Finally, hard water can aggravate the symptoms of chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.

Some ways to improve the problem of hard water

- Installation of indoor water softening system: Water softener creates ion exchange in water. Minerals including calcium and iron are removed and replaced by softening sodium ions. If a water softening system is not a viable option, you might consider using a water softener that can filter harmful minerals of hard water when you bathe.


- Use a gentle cleanser instead of a lot of soap and strong detergent to clean the skin because they are easier to wash and do not dry the skin. It is also a good idea to choose a natural, hypoallergenic detergent.
