We spend a lot more time indoors in the winter and most of us notice that our skin becomes dry and chapped. It could be from the extreme fluctuations in temperature or from indoor heating which tends to be drying to the skin and hair.
Did you know that another cause of dry skin and hair could be lurking in your shower? Chlorinated water is known to dry skin and hair. Think about how you feel after swimming in a chlorinated pool. Although most municipal water purification systems don’t add as much chlorine as a public pool, there are still significant amounts in the water that you shower in.
You may already be enjoying the benefits of a water filtration system in your home for drinking but have you considered the water that you bathe in? The skin is the largest organ of the body and soaking up water in this way is especially dangerous because the chlorine goes directly into your bloodstream. This means you absorb six times more chlorine per glass while showering than if you were drinking the same water.
“I didn’t realize the benefits of having a shower filter until I was without one,” one of our customers recently told us. Julia had gotten used to showering with a filter and then she went to visit her family in Toronto. “I couldn’t understand why my hair was suddenly so dry. I went out a bought some expensive conditioner but it didn’t really help.” When she got back home Julia’s hair problems seemed to disappear almost overnight and then she realized it was her shower filter that did the trick. “The expensive conditioner just sits on the shelf now,” she says.
The best way to eliminate chlorine and its hazardous derivatives from your water supply is to install a shower filter. Best Water carries several different shower filters that use Vitamin C to neutralize chlorine and restore the natural ph of your skin. Many customers notice the effects right away and report that it stops or reduces hair loss, stops itchy skin and itchy scalp, reduces eczema and asthma. Vitamin C is good for your skin and hair and is a powerful anti-oxidant to fight against aging skin.
Shower filter systems are easy to install – no plumber needed!
